The PhotoEditor SDK exports edited images in the same resolution, as they were originally loaded, as long as no cropping occured. You can immediately display the received data or save the result to a file. The final image is not stored in the camera roll or the filesystem. Instead a delegate method gets called with the resulting image and any further processing has to be handled there.


With version 6 of our SDK we introduced EXIF handling, meaning that all EXIF data of the input image are preserved. The reason why the EXIF data got lost in the first place, is that the UIImage class strips the EXIF data down to a minimal set. Therefore the input image must be passed in as a Data object to preserve all existing EXIF data. The following code sample demonstrates the process:

let sampleImage = Data(contentsOf: Bundle.main.url(forResource: "exifSample", withExtension: "jpg")!)
let photoEditViewController = PhotoEditViewController(data: sampleImage!)

Upon export, you need to use the data argument, passed by the func photoEditViewController(_ photoEditViewController: PhotoEditViewController, didSave image: UIImage, and data: Data) method defined in the PhotoEditViewControllerDelegate protocol in order to preserve all EXIF data.
