My internet is down. So, I have tried to edit something on my phone and upload it. However, while I attempt it I get: “An error has occurred: file extension error”. I edited it in Snapseed and exported it.

Any ideas how to get around it?

Shoot. I hate having an entry I can’t submit due to wifi down and unknown technical problems uploading.

It should work. Does for me. The only thing is if the file is too big and then you get a sideways picture. But you have the option in Snapseed to save a smaller file.

You are a life saver. Never would have found that. Uploaded with 10 minutes to spare.

Glad it worked.

Great!

I've had that trouble a bunch while trying to enter on my phone.

Usually, I just emailed the image to one of our "children", give them my login info, and they enter it for me.

But... I've never been able to upload a portrait oriented image from my phone without it showing up for me correctly, but sideways for the viewers/voters.

I very often upload from my phone (Android). After editing and saving the photo I locate the file and rename/change extension from jpeg to jpg. Then there is no issue uploading it. Just did for water bottle challenge.

Hope it helps.
