Edit in Topaz cannot be saved to Apple Photos Library for some random files

Some images in Apple Photos Library cannot be saved after editing in Topaz. Attached I added an example of offending file:

Steps to reproduce issue:

  1. Im viewing image in Photos
  2. I click “Edit” and then from “three dot menu” in Edit view in Photos I select “Topaz”. Image is first opened inside Photos in Topic plugin and then swiftly opened in Topaz app.
  3. I apply edits in Topaz and and click “Save to Apple Photos”. It routs back to Photos with (edited) image still opened in Topaz plugin.
  4. I click “Save edits” (or sth like that, my system has polish language set, so Photos UI is in polish, and says equivalent of that).
  5. I got error that edits cannot be saved (again, in polish). This is, I believe, Photos dialog window:

While the error itself seem to happen in Photos, it only happens with Topaz, I never had problems, even with the same files, when editing with other plugins, e.g. Pixelmator.

And with Topaz it happens rarely, only with some files.

That’s a known and long standing issue. And it only happens with images in portrait orientation, landscapes will work.

A dirty workaround is to crop the image slightly (a few pixels are enough) in Apple Photos before you send it to TPAI. That way saving back the file will work.
