  1. This Snapseed update is shockingly good.

    BUT it also introduces a serious bug by blowing away your EXIF data on save, especially the timestamp of the image file. I sure hope this is considered a high priority bug. (Android)

      1. Sven. I can no longer reproduce, but it was there. I can only speculate that they repaired the files post-edit in Google Photos. The first day the timestamp was disappearing. I saw this in Adobe Bridge. I failed to notice if GPS was blown away. The next morning I noticed that, upon saving a file in Snapseed (Android), the Info in Google Photos was again showing the edit timestamp, but then 5 or so seconds later it was showing the correct timestamp. Later that day I did a test with files uploaded from my computer. I edited the files and saw that the EXIF was roundtripping, the timestamps were correct, but the GPS was gone. And it appeared as though some, but not all, photos edited in Snapseed were showing their location in Google Photos. The day after that everything seems fine. Why I suspect they did the fix in Google Photos is because I didn’t notice Snapseed getting updated, but maybe I missed it.

  2. I can no longer find the function which lets me save a new look. Where is it hidden now? I really agree with those who dislike the light background. The dark one was much better! There is a reason for photographers preferring to work on a dark background.
