    Default Unable to save photo edits

    Problem....

    I took a screen shot.
    Went into my file manager (the one that came installed on the phone).
    Navigated to my screenshot.
    Opened using Photos, not gallery (so I could edit, which I have edited photos on my phone before this is just the first time this way and editing a screenshot).
    Edited and when I hit save at the top, the message of "unable to save photo edits" popped up.

    Why and what can I do to stop this??

    The exact steps I took above does not allow editing in gallery mode, only photos (using the choose action option via file manager).

    BUT If I enter straight into gallery (not via file manager) I can edit AND SAVE that way.

    Just dont understand WHY it is not allowing saving via Photos Via File Manager (the message I got)!!

    Oh well at least I can still get what I need to get done.

    Fear not everyone..its because of google plus. Go to settings,apps, and force stop google plus. Then uninstall the update. Next, go to the play store and download the new update..this worked for my g2

    I too have been having this issue on my G2. I tried following the steps of stopping Google+ and re-downloading but no change. I also have noticed a few other odd things with this...

    I am using Go SMS Pro and trying to get a photo set for a few contacts.

    I go under the contacts, tap the picture area, I get 2 options; Take photo or select from gallery.

    I choose Select from gallery and I browse to the photo, it brings up the photo editor and when I tap "done" it gives the error that the edit cannot be saved.

    The odd thing is that after making this attempt, I can make a 2nd attempt and it doesn't matter what photo I choose, it always brings up the original photo that filed.

    Since I am unable to accomplish this, I was also trying to get my contacts to use the facebook avatars but unable to complete this either.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    My wife just got the Lg G3 we had the same issue cant save photo edit. Go into your settings apps all and disable google+. That will do it guaranteed

    My mom's phone is having the same problem as everyone else's. We follow your instructions up until the "uninstall the update part". Our phones are one day old, not even, and we just got them. We haven't updated the Google + nor do we really know where to go to uninstall anything for Google+. Please help, we're very frustrated.

    Hi
    I have the same issue with lg g4. you can not save the edited photos from phone and google photos.
    I was searching online and some people says that the google photo crashes the phone, You have to uninstall google photo and reset the [hone to manufactory default settings to get the editing app to work properly (NOT GOOGLE PHOTO EDITING APP)
