    i took couple pictures today out of my iPhone and transferred them to my desktop PC (drag & drop). when i resized / rotated these pictures and then saved it, my PC told me i couldn't save it. i do not remember what the error message was, but it's something like the property of this picture ... something like that. is there any work around this?

    Assuming You're on a Windows PC...

    The message you're probably seeing is this:


    I have experienced this same issue a few times when I've tried editing/saving pictures taken with my iPhone on my Windows laptop (oddly enough, this issue doesn't come up on my Mac). The only way I sidestepped the issue on the Windows PC is by opening it in Paint and then saving it as a new file, with a new name. If you try saving it with the same file name, you'll probably get this message:


    Once you have that new file created, you should be able to edit it however you want.

    I'm not sure if this'll work for you but it's worth a shot. I'm sure there is an actual solution for it, but I haven't bothered researching it. Good luck!
