I am registered with a website that can archive scans of receipts. One way to upload the receipt image is to email it to an email address that's tied to my account.

To expedite the process, I want a shortcut on my Android desktop that, when pressed, starts the camera, lets me take & review the photo, and then emails the photo to a fixed email address. I've found lots of apps that take photos and automatically upload them to your favorite photo sharing site, but I haven't run across any that will send them to a pre-configured address.
