    I'm tired of carrying (and misplacing) my stupid drivers license just so I can show it to cashiers at Denny's or wherever they don't accept debit. But it takes too long to open up gallery and sort through all of my photos. If I could set it up as an icon on my home screen, or even the folder it is in as an icon so i could quickly pull it up, that would be perfect. I can't seem to figure out how to get this to work, though :(

    Any ideas? Thanks!

    Hah! Found it. Use Astro file manager to do this. Then long click home screen - Shortcut - Astro - nav to picture - click it and give it a name. All done!

    Thanks tho, sometimes it just takes me asking to figure it out myself.

    lol... that's got to be one of the funniest replies i've ever come across.

    ES Explorer also has this option burried somewhere in the long-click menu (it says "shortcut" if i correctly recall)

    didnt know about astro, though.
