    I got my G4 two days ago and played a little bit with the built in editor (Gallery and Google Photos) after taking a photo and it worked fine. If I remember correctly I could even tilt shift the photo. I am now not finding any option to do this or much else. Now when I use the app it seems like there are missing options, I cannot find the tilt shift one anywhere. It also will not save the edited photos (such as a simple crop). Does anyone know where these options went/are?

    I had a similar problem and even started a thread too. Hoping I can figure out what happened.

    This is the way my editing app looks now, but before, it was different. No clue how it changed.

    Did you donwload, install, or use the google photos app? That caused the edit funtion to stop working in the stock gallery app. Uninstalling does not help. You will have to do a factory reset and avoid the google photos app.

    I am doing a factory reset right now, but my issue is, I really like google photos for the backup capability. I had the previous version of google photos and the editing tools were there, then photos forced an update on me, literally forced, would let me see my photos without the update, and afterwards the editing tools were gone. Why would LG take the time and money to put such awesome editing tools, just to allwow Google bulldoze them off the phone with a stupid Photos update!?!?!?

    Yep I agree it's weird how that happens. I ended up using the Flickr app to auto upload my pictures.

    I recently for the LG V10 and Google Photos is built into the factory image so right off the bat the edit mode in LG Gallery does not work.

    This is so annoying!
    So essentially to get the LG editor back, I need to do a factory reset...but then I wont be able to use the backup facility of Google photos?

    This is absolutely ridiculous!! Google photos has all my back up photos and videos from the past 3 years so theres no way I can stop using it or change to a different back up now, but the very fact it blocks my stock LG G4 photo editor is making me wanna go mad. Why would they do that the absolute wankers!!

    Trying to spread this around as much as I can because this missing photo editor life was annoying my soul ( though in the time without it I discovered loads of new editors that let me do pretty cool things like photodirector)
    But yes, I have found a solution if anybody still has this problem.
    I use an app called 360 security ( great multiuse app btw)
    download it for this to work.
    They have this feature that lets you manage apps/move them to sd.
    (My phone is unrooted so I can only verify this works on an unrooted device.)
    What you wanna do is find google+ and "delete" the app
    Basically you can't because its a stock app but you can return the app to the default factory version. Once you do this the photo editor returns to the gallery.

    You need to never ever update it if they give you the option when you use the editor or it erases the editor again
    also go to the google play store and turn off automatic updates for google+ or else it will do the above automatically.
    And that's it!
    Hasn't gone away for me after like a week and I've been using it regularly again.
    Had to share the knowledge because I know the good *** editor is randomly gone struggle lol I hope everyone having this issue gets to see/try this.

    Follow me on ig if this works for you I'm probably gonna forget all my login info for all the sites I post this on & wont see any comments lol @aquaflux_
