    I'm a bit new to iphone developing (with lot of experience with software developing).
    There's a issue that is realy bothering me and i can't seem to find the answer :

    My basic application feature is to pick a picture from the photos library (using UIImagePickerController) , do some manipulation on the image and than save another copy of that image (the new manipulated image i created) back to the photos library.
    I just can't seem to understand if this thing is acceptable by apple. i did read some posts where applications didn't get approval since they write data to places they shouldn't.

    so, can please someone lead me to the answer - can my application save a photo (a one created by my application) to the photos library?

    thanks a lot.

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    There's a number of apps that already do stuff like that already, so I don't see you having a problem.

    There is an officially supported API for saving an image to the users photos so that's fine.
