As per the request of @chemist, I am rephrasing the post while keeping the OP at the end.

I am experiencing a major inconvenience when trying to edit images (on JP1) in the Gallery application. When trying to edit a photo taken with the device's own main camera, as soon as the edit function activates and tries to load the image, the app crashes (fades back to the Taks Switcher). This happens mostly when 8MP images are the subjects. Switching the camera to take 6MP photos and editing those mostly works. Lower MP images or downloaded pictures work just fine.

LVPVS over.

EDIT: This issue is still valid with EA.



After installing the latest upgrade I noticed that the Gallery app crashes immediately after trying to edit a picture. Sometimes I am able to see the new functions, but mostly not.

Anyone else?

LVPVS over.

EDIT: Original Jolla phone.

EDIT II.: Smaller images are fine. Photos taken by Jolla get killed...

Well I tried to reproduce (after installing latest update on my Jolla C) but it all works fine for me. Just edited and saved a photo without problems.

Same here (Jolla C) maybe it's an issue only on Jolla1

Works here on Jolla C but hangs for a while when converting the pic to editable format. Are you sure it's not working since the J1 has less RAM and could take more time to react?

It is not working, for sure, as the app closes like if the OoM Killer would have closed it.

Hm...Is it actually doing it? O_o

LVPVS over.

It works on aquafish... Well, it's obviously EOL for J1...

Bug filed about this issue. It affects Jolla1 devices when the camera is set to take 8 Mpix pictures (4:3). It is possible to bypass this problem for now by selecting 6 Mpix (16:9) in Settings > Apps > Camera.

The fix for this issue will be in 2.0.5 release, expected in a month or so.

I confirm the problem on J1, but it is not related to size (I tried many sizes). It is related to the location/directory: it occurs only with pics on the SD

I confirm the problem on J1. Crashes either for pictures in memory or on SD. Related to size: crashes for pictures larger than 800 kB on my device.
