How to Take a Screenshot on Your iPhone or iPad: (part of the) Very Beginner Series

*Occasional posts will contain how-tos and/or hints for VERY new users of iPads, iPhones or Kindles. All new users welcome! Non-tech speak, not terribly detailed, just basic device-enhancing goodness. All part of this Very Beginner Series. Please share with any beginners (Mom? Dad? Grandma?) in your life.*

If you have an iPhone or an iPad, this is something you will want to remember.

It is a handy little trick that you don’t know you need until you need it. But once you start using it, you’ll use it often.

It’s a screen shot.

By taking a screen shot, anything you see on your screen can be saved as a photo.

Imagine if you wanted to share a weather report, or a list of something, or a recipe……. so handy!

All you do is hold down the HOME button and the ON/OFF button at the same time.

Click!

Now look in your Camera Roll.

Your screen shot will be the last picture on your camera roll.

You can use this screenshot image of a recipe or whatever else you “captured” and send it off as you would any other photo, attached to an email or a text message.
