    I have a Galaxy Tab A, SM-T510 and the software is up to date.
    When I edit an image in gallery and I save the changes it does not save the original.
    Is there a setting to have the original saved?
    In previous software this wasn't the case.

    I found that when I edit the image, usually just cropping, there is a button at the top.
    The button is Save. That's the one that overwrites.````````
    Butt I found a command in the pull down menu (the 3 dots) has an option to 'Save copy'
    which doesn't overwrite.
    Since I saw the 'Save' command at the top I never bothered to ;look elsewhere.
    I thing they should be switched.

    Glad you found the save copy and yes, it does seem rather stupid!

    Most stock apps really suck.
    Try the ones I posted links to.
    They are both great.
