Toolkit — Apps to Easily Copy, Edit, and Share Images
This method involves building yourself a toolkit of apps that you can use over and over again when you need to manipulate images. Each app is simple to use, and they are all free apps, available from Google Play. If you prefer, you can move all the apps together into one icon on one of your phone’s menus (and give it any name you like) for easy access.
There are many other apps you could choose, but these do the job well.
- Copy images directly from the phone’s screen by pressing on the image, then selecting “Save as Image” option, the image will be saved in X-Plore’s Downloads folder.
- Open X-Plore, go to Downloads folder, Rename image as desired.
