Would it be possible for you to add .jpeg as an allowable format please?

Seasons Greetings John,

Can you not edit the extension to just ".jpg "  I do that with ".png" files sometimes or with compressed .exe files and unzip them.

Hi John,

Oho !  I run Linux.  :bugeye:  I keep forgetting that you can't right click on a tablet machine.  Sorry.
Can you edit the picture name in the gallery ?
Best Regards:

Apple seem to have gone down the line even further than Microsoft in keeping the customer as far as possible from anything remotely technical  :(

And the lack of the 'right click' options is a pain. I was using my iPad to update an Excel spreadsheet that is hosted on my main desktop PC - just using the pad as a port to it. Absolute pain - if you want to type anything, bringing up the screen keyboard covers anything you want to read.

Is there a way of rescaling an image on the ipad other than using an app? I have posted from my iPad but people complain they are too big
