i have no idea whether or not this will work on any other brand/model of phone.

the first thing i had to do was fish around in the camera settings and "tell" the phone to store photos in the smallest possible file size. the lowest size on my phone is still pretty large but it is less than the 1.9MB limit set by the QB platform software.

the next thing i had to do was force the internet browser to Full Site instead of mobile view.
i was only able to make that "stick" using the Samsung apps Internet app.
i have not been able to figure out how to make it stay on Full Site in either Firefox or Chrome. I have been able to force it once on each of those, but they both go right back to mobile view and neither will let me get back to full site again.

once i use Full Site i have all the WYSIWYG options i have when using a real computer.
getting around a page is a challenge because i have to swipe this way and that to find the buttons i want, but at least it works.

this is the only test i plan to do.
i don't use my phone for surfing the net.
definitely have no intention of using it to post anywhere - not even here.
i just wanted to see if i could figure this out for - at least - the brand & model of phone i have.

each of you will have to fiddle with your own devices to see if you can find the necessary settings to do what i did.

Thanks Patricej, and can we see the whole quilt? What you've shown here is a real teaser.

Thanks, Patrice, at least now I can try with more confidence that I don't normally have with electronics pics!
