    Does anyone know if it's possible to capture the picture from Google Street View? There are a few businesses that I would like to use the picture of the business building in my address book.

    Other than zooming in and taking a screenshot, I'm not really sure. Good question though!

    I normally visit the site in question on my PC, then get the site info and look for their logo and snag it for my address book. I'll re-size it if need be in Photoshop.

    This is a great idea that I'll keep in mind for the future! This won't work right now because the business in question is my Vet. He's small enough that he doesn't have a website or a logo, so I thought a picture of his building would be a great substitute. In fact this is what I had in mind for any small business that didn't have a presence on the web...

    The next time you're there, just take a phot. Then add the picture as the contacts picture.

    Do they have a business card or some type of stationary? If they have some type of image or logo, you can take a pic of that with your cell camera, crop it down to size in a graphic editor and use that. ;)

    Edit: This is what I did for T-Mobile. I thought it looked pretty cool hehe.

    I will probably end up doing that, I was just hoping that I could use technology to save me gas and time...

    Why not just take a screen shot when you have the building in Street View?

    Now that's a good idea! I was so focused on the phone, that I didn't think of the PC...
