New Use for Gypsy Photo App

Hi Everybody!
When I saw Sarah's post over at Pink Cricut it reminded me of something I had wanted to try with this app.  Using my scanner, I scanned a page of my newest cart Mini Monsters (sooooo cute BTW!!).  I saved it as a JPEG file.  (See Pink Cricut's post on how to save photo's onto your Gypsy.) 

The images were still a little small, but this would still be useful to see the layers that are available for that cut. 

Then using my computer program, I cropped the photo to zoom in on the image of the cut that I wanted. 

I don't know that I would want to do this for ALL my handbooks, but for the ones with complicated layers this would be really handy to have when you go to a crop or something.  The Gypsy has tons of memory space, so you could fit quite a bit of handbooks this way.  You could also scan in images of your keypads if that was something you also needed.  I had tried downloading the cart handbooks from the Cricut Cart library page, but I wasn't able to (but if you are able to figure out a way to do this, let me know, 'cause that would be a faster way to get the handbook images into your gypsy).  Hope you find this helpful!  Thanks, and hope everyone had a chance to craft today!
