When the file has been successfully uploaded you will be given the rather terse message ‘OK’. (This feature needs a little more work before it is made properly public in the manual!)

If now look at the list of pages in your wiki a new one will have been created representing the file. Tapping that entry will show you a thumbnail. Tap the thumbnail to view the whole of the file.
