    Default How to rename photos in my Camera Roll or DropBox account??

    I have only had my iPhone 5 for several months and have picked up on the ins and outs pretty fast, I thought. I am trying to rename some of my Photos in my Camera Roll or in my DropBox account. I just can not figure out how to do it without going into my DropBox account via my Laptop. I can do it easily in my Laptop but I can not figure out how to rename them on my iPhone 5. Can anyone help me out???

    Thank You,
    Vinny

    I don't think you can. I tried doing the same thing via the camera roll and via the Dropbox app but I could not find a way.

    I find that the strangest quirk. I have a few of the best Android devices and it is just a matter of long pressing on the photo in either the DropBox acct or the Phone's Gallery. I hope this is a feature that is changed in the new OS update. That is just a royal pain in the *** to have to go into your laptop to rename a picture in your photo album. Dumb, Dumb, Dumb.

    FWIW, I can’t rename photos on my $2000 DSLR, either. I am forced to use a computer for that task. #sigh

    Was just about to say...Canon 5D won't allow renaming either...video OR photography (which can be a big pain sometimes).
