Thank you so much for these suggestions on how to see the filename for an image on my iPhone!


I'll give one of them a try.

I'm still not completely sure how to leave the very best feedback on posts. I'm now aware it's important to set the Happy Face icon and I also see the "Helpful" button but I no longer see the "Solved my Issue" button.


I must be clicking items in the wrong order.


I'm sorry for being "green" on this part of Apple Communities. I really want to get this right on my next attempt to leave the very best feedback when someone is taking the time to help me.
