In Android 14, the new restricted Photo Picker is the default method for selecting files. Unfortunately, unless the developer specifically enables the option to browse files the old way, which the developers of this app have not done, only the Photo Picker can be used. Since the picker can't see all albums, it almost completely disables the functionality of this app. I can't select any photos to edit. It's an experience-breaking oversight in an otherwise amazing app.

Great app! However, it can be improved. The healing tool doesn’t erase things very well & you aren't allowed to adjust the size unless you zoom in & out. This is a similar problem when adding double exposure; I wish it had the option to make the eraser tool bigger or smaller. That way it can be more precise when erasing or healing an object. Another feature to add is the undo and redo button while editing at all times. Lastly, to allow you to increase or reduce the "Looks" sensitivity.

Request: some normal looking text that is just plain and you can make a rectangle and shape it and fill it with text. I love the "selective" feature and the UI! Would love to see fine controls (increase/decrease effect by 1point/5points etc) because it can be difficult to dial things in just right using only the slider on a touch screen. And would love to this app reintegrated into Google Photos and usable in a browser on a computer. Thanks team!
