    Images somewhat difficult

    I'd like to add a photo of a business card to a contact on my Android (latest android, moto g). Several problems.

    1) Chrome dumps out when trying to use the camera as image source- out of memory

    2) Firefox works, but the image doesn't get added to the list when using the camera as source. Only using a file works.

    3) The worst thing however is that even when I get the image in

    to contacts, it is tiny, and you can't blow it up by touching it. I tried to add an action to it, but there is no choice for "View Image" in the action list.

    Any way to make this work? It would be even better if you could hook to something like Camcard and do text recognition on business cards.

    Update - I was able to make the image larger in the "View Contact" screen, which is better than nothing.

    Hello cenesdelavega,

         I had a couple of questions.  Are you putting the business card in the Profile image on the Contacts screen?  Or have you put an image object on the screen? 

       There may be a problem with the connection to the camera.  I'm not sure how to resolve images not being able to be pulled from camera storage.  You will have to download the images to your computer to attach to the contact. The size of an image is controlled by the setting on the image icon.  The ProfileImage on the edit Contact screen is set to 75px width.  If you are adding your own image object, set the Width to 336px and Height to 192px.  This is a standard 3.5" x 2" business card converted to pixel units.  It also matters how high or low the resolution of the picture you took of the business card.  If high, the image will be squished.  If it's at a lower resolution, it will appear small or stretched.
