Hey groovy dudes,
I bought a new Android phone, and it is great, but I can’t read the screen. I’m terribly farsighted, and reading glasses give me a headache. I can’t read the numbers, so is there a way to just set a picture of who is calling me?
First, thanks for being a great groovyReader! I understand your problem and lucky for you; I know an easy way to hopefully help ya out a little. My recommendation is to add pictures to the contacts so you can see them easier when you go to dial. Take a look at the groovyPost steps below and let me know if this works out for you!
Take your phone and try to get pictures of all your contacts. Trust me; this is probably the hardest part!
Once you have all the photos, jump down to Step 2.
Open the Contact list on your phone. Open the Contact you want to edit and press Settings, Edit.
With the contact open, Click the Square with the little head and plus sign in it.
The phone will give you the option to select a photo from your Album or to capture a new photo on the fly. Since we already have all the photos were going to use, we will just use those from our album.
Select Album, find the photo and select it.
The phone will show you a yellow border. If you touch the border, it will show four arrows. These arrows mean that you can drag the border any way you want to make the picture bigger or smaller. For this example it’s all about my dad, so I don’t want to be in the picture. Resize the frame and press save.
You can see the picture is now connected to the contact. Press save again, and you are done! If you sync your phone with a service like Google Gmail, your contacts should sync there as well – so if you wipe your phone there will be no need to repeat this process. Now that’s a time saver!
Now go take some pictures!
