browser (add to home screen option)

Hey guys does anyone know if the picture in browsers "add to home screen option" can be edited? When I choose the option it takes a real cheesy screen shot of the site I'm trying to add. It would be great if it would let me choose my own pic for the site or at least pan around the image and choose something other than what it currently shows. I must admit this is a "great" option but it sure needs some tweaking. Please help and thanks.

Re: browser (add to home screen option)

Its not an error on my device. I am using a curve 9330 OS6
When I go to browser hit options choose add to homescreen a window pops up. It has a screen shot of the current web page I'm trying to save. My question is does anyone know if I am able to change the picture to what I want?

Hi again, you've obviously done something different this time because I understand. Your 1st post was full of

""" which made comprehension somewhat difficult.

 

I run a screenshot app which makes replicating your issue difficult but if you are wanting to save a screnshot of the www page you are viewing, navigate to a webpage that has what you want to save and save it to Homescreen.

Re: browser (add to home screen option)

Sorry I have auto text set up so when I type (bb.) It automatically prints the blackberry logo but here it just does that &quot stuff. But am I understnding correctly? I can put a bookmark on my homescreen and put an icon on it? Cause what I'm saying is if you have a curve 9330 try doing what I suggested. Goto browser then choose options then add to homescreen and look at the icon or pic it auto gives the bookmark. I want to know am I able to change that.

Hi again.

 

I cannot replicate it on my device so hopefully other 9330 users will be able to throw light on it. From researching, I guess not as I was unable to find anything useful to add here.
