It seems that apps can't save data to the sd card under lollipop. This was a problem under kitkat 4.4 It was necessary to root thevdevice in order to get that functionality. How can I get the ability to write to thevsd card under lollipop?

I store my photos on an SD card. If I edit a picture in the Photos app that came preloaded then try to save it I get the message "Unable to save changes"

Which phone do you have? Is this preinstalled Photos app the Google Photos app, or some stock Gallery app? The Google Photos app has an icon that looks like a pinwheel.

I suspect that there's a problem with the SD card. On my Zenfone 2, I'm able to edit a photo on the microSD card using the Google Photos app, and it will save back to the microSD card without difficulty. Can you try a different card?
