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

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 !

With the latest OS and Photoshop versions you should not need to grant permission to open photos.
