I don't remember this being an issue with any other galaxy phone I've had. The Samsung picture editor or whatever picture editor option is built into the gallery saves the now edited picture over the original. I need that to stop! I want to keep the original picture and the edited one. Can anyone help?

Instead of hitting the 'save', tap the 'more' icon (three verticle dots), then 'Save as copy'.

I got a notification after restarting the app after the update that this was a change.

First, you can always revert a picture back to the original, so there's really no need to keep both. But if you want to, after you make your changes, tap on the three dots on the bottom right-hand corner which will bring up another menu dialogue where you can choose save as.

Thank you both. I feel dumb, but It used to automatically save as a copy before. I didn't think I'd have to manually do so.

No reason to feel dumb. They've just made it easier to point-and-shoot, edit, and share. You can always revert the original photo to he way it was.

But it didn't make it easier!  Now it is 2 steps to save as a copy when it used to do so automatically!  The revert option greys out after while.

It's an annoying extra step.
