Sourcetree would like access to my photos

Today I installed the newest version of SourceTree V3.2.1 (255). After about an hour, I was asked to authorise SourceTree to access my photos. Why is this?

Hello Sjonkeesse,

Thanks for reaching out about Sourcetree on Mac prompting for access to your photos. This prompt is most likely due to how Sourcetree will store and access your account avatars and your repo Avatars. Within Sourcetree you will have accounts and each account will have an avatar associated with it. Along with each repo having an avatar as well.

I hope this clarifies where this prompt is coming from.
