how do you get photos off the drone onto a computer? I was using my iPhone to fly the drone. I can see the pictures when I have the Tello app open. I clicked them and hit save. They are not in my phone's photos folder.

I found the bit about having to use the Tello app to give permission to save your photos to the phone in another one of the threads--I guess that is the right word. So my pictures showed up in my photos on my phone. Great, I thought. Then when I tried to upload them to my MAC with Photos it seemed that the MAC didn't "see" them in the phone. I used Air Drop-a first for me-and send them to my MAC. Moved them out of the download folder into a proper folder and tried to open them with Photoshop-click.open with Photoshop. They don't open. They say .jpeg. I used Open on Photoshop and had to click through all the folders Desktop>CFBG>CFBG 2020>June 2020>Drone to the individual images and then they opened. Even after I resized and renamed them they still don't open in the normal way.

Evidently it was my computer or Photoshop in a snit. I turned the computer off and went to sleep. This afternoon the pictures open fine. Sorry for taking up time and space.
