Saving photos from email

2018-07-29, 2:23 AM

I am new to Motorola and frankly, my HTC was more user friendly. However, I am sharing this because I spent about three hours trying to figure out where my photos went that were downloaded or saved from an email. I still don't know what corner of the ether contains my saved and downloaded photo; but I did find a way to save the photo to my phone. I even called the Verizon store and they couldn't help.


1. Click on attachment icon in email. A thumbnail appears.

2. Click on thumbnail.  The attachment appears

2. With photo on screen, pull down from the top and click the three dots in the upper right of the screen. 

3. Select "Share".

4. Select "Upload to photos". [This is the non-intuitive step that some Motorola programmer must have dreamed up at 3:00 am. Select upload to download? Perhaps it makes sense in some alternate reality.]

5. The photo will then be in "Photos".

6. [It also worked saving it to File Manager, Main storage.]
