Using photos in mobile devices

OK

So the following is an Android code issue?

The Android needs special scripting? Is that covered anywhere on the LC
sites?
As far as IOS is concerned, does the scripting on the lesson seem to be
correct? Can any size be set in IOS? I guess the question is what size can
be used without distortion in the image? More questions, what is the size
of the photo library image on the iPhone or iPad/ I will be back to you
shortly because I had that information at one time in Xcocde.

Thank you

Vaughn Clement
