The iphone has proved challenging when manipulating file formats from app file folders to blog file folders for organization. Using the share button, or rather, accepting the share button as the main course to take on using a photo from one app and using it in your blog (on the phone). It shouldn't really take a lot of time. Am I right?

Here's the scenario. I have a screencap from the laptop. I share that to Airdrop to get it onto my phone — I've given up saving files to a folder on icloud because it just takes too long saving (deciding on the folder). Then it takes too long again when I go into the lj app and spend another 30 minutes finding that folder. Ugh. — Because it always takes me that long to figure out that lj's mobile app doesn't play nice with icloud.

Once on the iphone, I share it to Telegram. Once in Telegram, I use the Gmail Bot to create a new email /new

Tip: I fill out the to: button last. It's important to get the headers in order when you create a new email.
lj-userpic: userpic keywords
lj-tags: greyhounds, potato, wool
lj-mood: happy
lj-music: The Pixies: Where is my mind?
lj-comments: ("off" or "noemail")

I have a dummy file in a cheatsheet tab where I can copy all my headers, paste them into the Gmail Bot, edit them, copy them again, paste them in the final "Message" button prompt. Next, scroll up to the screencap image and long press the image with finger to copy it into RAM. Paste that into the message field as well. It's important that the image follow the headers! Rather, that the headers precede anything in the body of the message!!!

Next, fill in the Subject: Remember 100 characters or less. Then, finally, type the To: information. Click send when prompted.

Then I go back on the laptop, open new post and edit it using the keyboard.

All of this for a picture of the USA with non-marijuana compliant states spelling the word "Lit"
