That's the Lit photo - Lit allows you to compress several photos at a time so seems more useful than the alternative.

I'll upload the Lit photos on the Croatia thread - see if there's any appreciable difference in quality.

Nope, it still won't upload the png file even with a shortened name. Can I change the extension as well as the name?

People have told me I can't just change extensions, but I've done it and it worked just fine.

Propaganda works best when those who are being manipulated are confident they are acting on their own free will.

I did the same and it works! I changed the png to jpeg. It seems that pics with the phone camera are jpg, screenshots are png. Both require their excruciatingly long names changed and the png also requires the extension to be changed to jpeg (I guess jpg would also work but I'm long in the tooth!)

Thanks to all for helping me through this.

I will also document (so I can find it in future) that Rename is not always available in the menu. It's accessible by going through File Manager > [navigate to folder] > [long press on photo] > More > Rename
