Hi guys,

It’s not a major request but is it possible to only use one pixelmator photo folder in iCloud vs two ? I see that one stores the linked files and the other the .photo files.

From the screenshot, I see a Pixelmator folder (which would generally be created by Pixelmator for iOS, the original Pixelmator for Mac, or Pixelmator Pro) and a Pixelmator Photo folder (created by Pixelmator Photo). Although it is weird there's no icon displayed with it... If my hunch is correct, the Pixelmator folder was created by one of our other apps. Does that seem possible/likely?

I don’t use the other pixelmator apps.

Both folders contain the files I used to edit on my iPad.

Interesting... just to confirm, you didn't create that Pixelmator folder yourself? Or did you? The linked files can only reside in the Pixelmator Photo folder but the exported Pixelmator Photo files can go in any folder you put them (except other app folders).

No I didn’t create the folder myself. I deleted the pixelmator folder and backed up the .photo files in there. I’ll report if I notice anything weird going on in the future.

Stay healthy Andrius!
