    Anyone know just what kind of access developers have when you allow them access to photos? is it just system level and only on the device or can they see or actually upload the photo or the entire photo album?

    Does the new hide photo keep developers from that album?

    Now with extensions, if you you allow an extension for in photos app is the developer able to view or upload the photo or even the whole album in that case?

    Just always been curious about this, I always figured they can see or upload the photos if they choose, but I'm not sure, and really not sure with extensions.

    I think it would be possible to at least screenshot if a photo is selected,
    otherwise why would an App need permission to access the photo album?
    Apps that modify photos must have access to the photo once selected.
