a bit of confusion here...
I don't have a pc here, so I could only see the photo through this screen, not realizing the camera and hence data/ photo uploaded were absolutely fine.
Lacking a means of showing the problem, all I can do is describe it, so here goes.
The photo and images look very square, some large areas that, for example used to a clear blue, with detailed tones and variations in brightness/ contrast, becomes solid blue. this happens everywhere, all contrast and detail flatening out and becoming solid/opaq.
It may be a screen resolution or color setting that has been altered and that cannot be changed back after a hard reset. Thanks for offering to help here,
