I can no longer seem to pick a picture directly out of my Google Photos app and upload to Snapseed.
I pick a photo to edit, click on the top right 3-dot menu, select “open in Snapseed” and it does nothing.
I am able to upload a photo by going directly to Snapseed app first and picking photo that way but it shows only 2-3 photos and I have to scroll quite a bit to find a photo that I took a week ago. Plus, I’m not 100% certain but I think it is viewing my apple photos and not my Google ones.
I actually initially was attempting to follow your tutorial using your photos that were dated 2020. I thought maybe the problem was date not yet here even tho they are in my GP and I archived them as instructed but it still an issue when I changed date of one to 8/28/2018.
It has been a while since I last used Snapseed so I did delete the app and then uploaded it again to iPad thinking maybe it needed to be updated. But same issue occurs. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Snapseed is currently having a problem on iOS devices. There is nothing wrong with your phone or how you’re doing it – it is a bug that they’re working on right now. See this thread in the Google Photos forum.
Opening Snapseed directly and then getting the photo from your phone is the way to do it now. (until it’s fixed) The issue is that the photo must be on your phone. If you want an older photo, you need to open it in Google Photos, then tap the 3-dot menu and download. Now that photo will be available to snapseed.
