Take a deep breath

It took me four days and many failed attempts and dead ends, but I am pleased to report that I can now shoot a one-minute video using my iPhone and upload it to YouTube without any problems in about five minutes.

Here are the steps in my TechnoDolt©® approved approach:

1. Using the iPhone's home screen after finishing shooting, press the square button with the arrow pointing upward — it's in the lower left corner.

2. A new screen appears with a zillion options on it — ignore them all and scroll all the way down to the bottom, where you'll find "Save to Files".

3. Press "Save to Files" and another screen will open up: at the top it will say "iCloud Drive".

4. Below "iCloud Drive" will be "Desktop", and below that a list of all the stuff on your computer's desktop.

5. I created a file on my computer desktop labeled "Video of the Day", which is empty — I press that on my phone and Bob's your uncle: in a couple minutes (if your video is about a minute long like mine are) "No items" changes to "1 item" — there's your downloaded movie, ready to upload to YouTube or wherever or send or text to your homies.

If I can do it, anyone can do it.
