    Save picture from Gmail

    Good Afternoon Everyone.

    Yesterday I snapped a pic with my phone & sent it to my Gmail account (not smart phone, not tethered, nothing fancy.) While on tablet, opened email, tapped pic & saved to tablet. I wanted to upload the pic to a FB post - found the pic using File Manager under Downloads & tapped OK. FB got stuck & never uploaded. So I went to Downloads & tapped pic to view it & got message "file corrupted" I just saved the pic from Gmail onto work PC no problem.

    Any idea what I'm doing wrong? I'm at work right now & don't have tablet with me but wanted to see if anyone had ideas for when I get home.

    Thank you!

    Just a thought. How big is the original file? Is your email app set to download larger files? Many are set for something like 32kb and you have to download the rest. Usually there is a little notice, I forget what it says. If you don't download the whole email, the file will not all be there and you'll get the corrupted notice.
    Cheers, Dave

    mcarver - I will get that app & try it tonight - thanks!
    Dave - not sure what you mean about email app. I have gmail and usually just open it when I get a notification at the bottom of the tablet. As for file size, this work PC shows it to be 47KB jpeg file. So maybe it is too big? Never had any problems downloading pics taken with my phone on PCs but maybe tablet or Andriod OS is different.

    Sorry, I should have checked. I see the gmail app doesn't have that setting, it either downloads attachments or lets you do it. Other email apps only download so much, like 32kb, and then let you download the rest. Most now also have an unlimited setting.
