    You save it to a temp that one you created, or is that the file folder on my iPhone? Or is that something you create inside the file folder? And if so, can you show us how to do that as well?

    Martin: That is a folder I created in the Files app. You can use any folder you want there or create any one you want there. Up to you.

    How did you get the little red cursor on your iPad video? I do demos for our computer club and could sure use one!

    Thank you for posting this handy tip.
    Quick question, is it possible to save the resized image on your iPhone directly and not use iCloud drive?
    I am a relatively new user of the iPhone and would prefer to do this instead of uploading to the cloud.
    Thanks in advance!

    Lorraine: It is much easier to do it via iCloud. If you are a new user then iCloud is the way to go. Otherwise, you could transfer via AirDrop or save the image to your Photos app and sync your photos.
