after editing photos from the gallery why can't the note 4 save it in full 16 MB quality? it gives me to choose 8 or 6 MB.... and more important why it does not save it in the same folder of camera pictures and save it directly to studio ??!
anything i can do about it??

so there is no internal app of the note 4 itself that can edit those photos....??
and anyway it can save it directly at the same folder of the camera?

The camera is a 16 megapixel camera. That doesn't mean an individual photo will require 16MB of storage space.

The internal photo editor saves the edited photos to a folder named studio.

My guess is that it does this to separate the edited photos from the original ones.

As much as I like to edit a photo more than once, I like having the edits saved to a separate location. That way I can keep up with the different versions.

That's a function of Android. An app can only write to it's own folder.

As for wanting an app that will double the space that your pictures take up on your device/SD card...why?

OP is mistakenly using MB (megabytes) when he means to use MP (megapixels). A 16 MP image taken with my Note 4 is 2988 x 5312 pixels (just under 16 MP). I edited that image via the editing function in the gallery app, and when I went to save it, it offered only two options, High quality (<8 MP) or Medium quality (<5 MP). I chose High, andI still ended up with a saved image that is only 1676 x 2981 pixels (just under 5 MP). That's a big drop in resolution. So, serious editing needs to be done with a different app, or download to computer and edit there.

Great answer. Thanks.
