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

Well THAT'S CHANGED. I've just got a new Samsung Galaxy A52s, running Android 11, and Gallery's [SAVE] button now OVERWRITES the original image you are editing.
In order to Save a Copy, you need to click on the 3 vertical dots menu and click "Save as Copy".
Your phone will keep a temporary copy of the edited picture, but only for a very short period. This allows you to REVERT to the original image within a short timeframe by clicking on [REVERT], which displays for as long as reversion is available.
It's actually pain in the posterior for those of us who are used to the old system. The a Fail Dangerous 👎 instead of the more sensible old Fail Safe. I wouldn't mind if there was an option to choose between Overwrite/New Image.

Me too. I had hoped it might be a feature in Gallery's hidden "Labs" menu. It's not.
This is yet another example of appalling software design where they bring in an update that has a dangerous potential for loss of data. What are Samsung playing at?! 🤬
