In general it is not recommended to use controls which accept horizontal manipulation gestures in a Pivot. This is part of the Microsoft UX Design Guidelines for Windows Phone. Normally an Image Editor control would be put in a separate picture-editing page.
For the purpose of experimentation, you can try setting the UseOptimizedManipulationRouting
on the ImageEditor control to false and let me know if it resolves the case.
