After editing an image in Pixelmator Photo on my iPad and saving back to Photos, I then tried to open the image in MacOS Photos’ own edit feature and got an error message that says:

Cannot Start Editing
Photos cannot load adjustments for this image.

The image was taken with my iPhone XS.

I’ve just got the same message after saving an image (flattened) from Pixelmator as a plugin in Photos on the Mac too, so possibly a problem with Apple Photos, but reporting the issue anyway.

Hi there, thanks for reporting this! Are you seeing the issue consistently? Or is it more intermittent?

I’ve been having a bit of a break from doing any processing, so these are actually the first images I’ve used Pixelmator on for some time, either Mac or iPad.

I’ll try a few more and get back to you.

I’m not able to reproduce the issue, but have attached the error from last night. Image
