I have taken pictures, with both my android smartphone, and my Apple Ipad. I find that the camera in the Ipad, takes a much better photo. But then again this depends largely on the type & model of phone.
You can simply transfer, or send as an attachment, to your personal email. I have done this successfully a few times. Then from a saved file upload the picture, or image to a newly created photo capsule in my hub article. Hope this helps you out.
