@pbiggs, your patience throughout the process is very much appreciated. This is strange. I'm unable to replicate the issue on my end (running the same iOS device version, GoPro App and MAX firmware). I'll look further into this.
Let us know if anything else comes up. Stay stoked & have fun capturing moments using your GoPro!
I'm having the same issue when using the MAx and an iPhone 11 running the latest iOS and have the latest GoPro app as well.
I've attached a screen shot of two photos - one showing a screen shot from the phone of how I want the photo to be exported from the app, the second showing how it's exported.
