Hi, I am trying to import photos onto the photoshop app and it says I need to allow access to photos on settings but when I go onto my settings there is no option to allow permission. Can anyone help please?

Hi , I've moved your post from the Photoshop forum to the Photoshop for Mobile  forum where you are more likely to get help with your issue.

Go to Settings and scroll down to the Photoshop application. Select the application then tap on Photos on the right side and allow Read and Write.

I am having a similar problem. There is no option to "read & write." The only options are "none" or "add photos only".

With the most recent updates to Photoshop on ipad you should not need to grant access to open or import from Photos. You will need to grant access to save to Photos though.

Exactly.  If I recall correctly,  its part of the privacy features in iOS/iPadOS 14.  If you haven't before,  you have to grant an app permission to save to photos.

Same here. Trying to export a photo and save it, but when I go to Settings and Photoshop, there's only an option to change Notifications settings. No option to change permissions.

You could try resetting prefs from the application settings, or uninstall and reinstall to get the OS to show the message on share to grant access to Photos

I am having the same problem with my new IPad Pro (6th Gen) . Both Adobe Photo Express and Camera do not have options to "access photos or camera" on the Setting. Can anyone help?

Hello ! 

 

I've been having the same exact problem. I have an Ipad pro, with latest iOS update. I've tried resetting preferences, deleting app, restarting the device. On my settings, photoshop doesn't even show the photos allowance option... Can someone help ? 

 

Thanks !

Can you please provide a screen recording of the issue you are hitting? With the latest application and OS versions you should not be required to grant access to Photos to open photos from your device in Photoshop.

I am having the same problem too; there is nothing that allows me to allow access to photos. I also upated the app and still have the same problem. I would have thought that if there is a block on being able to move forward, that Adobe would have checked this out and fixed the problem. I can see it has been a problem for far too long.

Yes, it’s a pity because it looks like it would be useful. I even tried buying but came up against the same problem so I have cancelled.
