This is driving me crackers and I’m sure you must be able to do this!

I just want to be able to select multiple contiguous images with a gesture rather than having to click on each individual image. This is on an iPad Pro with the current mobile version.

All help greatly appreciated! Make me sane again!

Tried this;

1 Select an image, it gets a blue check mark. >> works
2. Lift your finger. .>> cool
Double tap and keep your finger down to Select a second image. It gets a check mark. With your finger still on that 2nd image drag your finger left or right to another unselected image. It will gain the check mark and the blue border >> second image gets the check but moving to another image does nothing and moving down scrolls the whole page.....
3 with the finget down continue dragging and selecting images that you want >> whole page scrolls and no new images are selected.

I’ve also tried another finger(!) and an Apple Pencil, same behaviour though.

That's why I just go for the .../Select method, direct on the Grid I find just too hit and miss for me!
Aye, this works but is a bit of a pain when selecting a large number of images from an even larger batch......

After much frustration I have worked how to get this working! So, I select a single image and then double tap on the same image, sometimes this unselect the image and I need to start again and sometimes it allows me to multi select. Not perfect but I’ll take it! Cheers for all the replies, all appreciated!
