For anyone tearing their hair out over this issue, here's the fix:

Go to SETTINGS
Scroll down to CAMERA
Choose FORMATS
and then, choose MOST COMPATIBLE

Your pix will be in JPEG until you decide to go back to HEIC, which is claimed to be "slightly better quality" (but doesn't please if you can't do what you want with them!)
;)

Of course you'll find this info -- maybe -- in and among all the monetized offers to solve the problem when you search it. It took me quite awhile to find this simple fix. There is still more to be done to convert the HEICs already uploaded and also to hopefully fix an HDD and format another one so that pix can be uploaded and shared. All of these problems started when I caved and got WIN11Pro, perhaps the worst OS ever devised. But I digress. Anyone else here who is having these problems, they likely all stem from that. *We just love our friendly codemonkeys over at MS.* :fuming: And they love me, too. Now my pix are all out of order and I'm feeling very Forrest Gump-y today. My Gallery IS like a box of chocolates. And each day is a new adventure regarding what I might get.:disappointed::cringe:
