Geezer and Carbon based biped, with a fondness for hard cheese, Amigas, synthesised noises and competing in sprint triathlons.

Unix geek at heart, Mac user since 10.4 so still a little green on some things (Dog cow? Teh snappy?), but familiar to some extent with almost every current computing platform know to man, and some that aren't.

Sounds like you had iCloud setup before, and it now needs to confirm those details. You may not have used it for much, but likely the find my iPhone feature, which is now mandatory on iOS8. If you can't recall your password, you can reset it

Suspect it depends on the locale you are using, what hardware keyboard you are using etc, it's not going to be the same for everyone. This one works for me, with a UK keyboard. Perhaps the other answer is using a US layout.

I've not tried a grabbed photo. Can you check if your rear camera and screenshot pics (hold home then press lock to take a screenshot) work as normal? I'll grab a pic off the net and try

The scale seems right, it more seems like the exif is wrong, like it's showing me portrait then cropping landscape, or something.

Is your crop accurate after you save the edit though? I realise my dude may look more handsome than yours, but it's the accuracy I need to check, not the hot or not rating ;)
