When editing photos, it always saves as a copy. Is there a way to stop this as it takes up memory on my phone. I dont want to keep the originals just the edited photos, or at least have the choice. Is there a way to change this in settings. I'm new to Samsung after always having an iPhone where it was easier to navigate
That's frustrating, yeah that's what I currently do at the moment but it's just a tedious task. Thanks for your reply
This is happening to me as well. My old Samsung S8+ would overwrite the photo but there was an option to save as copy. With my new Samsung S20+ I have no option I have to save it as a copy. I adjust almost every photo I take. This means my photos will be taking up twice the space. Please give us an option to overwrite by default and the option to save as a copy.
I like that feature, I've always relied on it. I want my phone to save each iteration and let me decide to keep them or not keep them. But I received an update to my s20+ yesterday and now when i edit the originals are nowhere to be found, just the new edit. They're not in the trash or recently deleted. Is there a setting somewhere to go back to the way it was??
Same here. I like that it created a copy so I can edit the original. Got the latest update on my S20+ to Android 11 and now it overwrites and I lose the original. 😡
I've been through the entire phone trying to find a way to turn this back on or whatever.
I had just had a panic attack about this same thing, when I had just read that it did that now. I saw in the Upgrade details that now you can always revert back to the original. Figured it out...Open picture, click EDIT, click REVERT at top. ✅
That works!!! Sucks it doesn't just auto save anymore, but at least you can get the original back. Thought I had lost them forever since the upgrade last week. Whew. Thank you!!!!
Top right corner of the save page there are 3 dots, click it and choose "save copy" you'll have a new copy other than original.
