Grrrr.... I'm about ready to throw my phone across the room. Which is bad because these are cinder block walls and the phone would not survive the impact.

My frustration stems from the Litsy photo editor. It insists on altering a photo that's already to just be dropped into place. I want to post a quote. Simple, I thought, except that the editor eats the quote. It seems (on the android version at least) that the edit aspect is stuck at 1:1 ratio.

How does one turn that selection off? Or how does one post a photo without allowing the editor to touch it?

I find my picture or quote and take a picture of the screen by pressing the button you use to close your phone and while holding that button, I press the button at the bottom of the phone and it snaps a picture of the screen then I use an app called Collage and do my picture in there. Save the picture and then add the image from Litsy.

>1 gilroy: It's true that Litsy only allows uploading images that are 1:1 squares. So, there may not be a way around the editor, I'm afraid. Email me some screenshots ( and I might be able to help?
