    This seems so basic its embarrassing to ask ..... but spent ages getting nowhere

    A jpeg image arrived by email ..... when I selected save image it has put it into 'downloads'
    I can navigate to downloads and see it, and select it

    The bottom of screen gives option to 'move' but it stays faded out .....is there an easy way to move it to 'gallery'
    Would have thought I could have selected picture, then 'More' and move to ....... but apparently not

    So both "move" and "copy" are both faded, or greyed out? Have you tried restarting the phone?

    This is the stock file manager on my Samsung Note20 Ultra. And here I can move or copy .jpeg images from Download to any other folder I like.

    I'm not seeing that on my Samsung. It's not faded, and it can move the .jpg to any folder, either in internal storage or external storage(the micro-SD card)

    Really the only thing I can think of that would even do that, is if the target folder was read-only, write protected.

    Quite frankly the only thing I can think of that would cause that, is if the folder you're trying to move the picture to was read-only, and can't be written to. Maybe try another file manager app, that isn't the stock Samsung "My Files" one?
