Screenshot can be a great way to take a snapshot of a photo found on the web, an email, or just a fun way to share something on your screen. If you want to know how to take a screenshot on iPad, please follow these simple steps.
Step 1. Find the image you want to take a snapshot of
Search your iPad for the photo you want to capture. You can take an interesting snippet of an email, take a screenshot of an app showing the weather in your city, a snapshot of something exciting you've found on the internet, a screenshot of a funny chat with a friend, or a screenshot of many other images.
Step 2. Determine where the on / off button is
It's in the right corner of the top bar of your iPad. This is the button you use to turn your iPad on or off.
Step 3. Determine where the Home button is
It's a round button centered at the bottom of the iPad. In the middle of the button there is a white square icon.
Step 4. Hold down the On / Off and Home buttons at the same time
This must be done within a second.
Do not hold down the buttons for too long - this will turn off the device. You just need to click at the same time, not hold
Step 5. Release the buttons
It is not necessary to release them exactly at the same time. If the screenshot is taken successfully, you will hear the camera shutter sound and see a white screen.
Step 6. Make sure the screenshot is taken
Just look in the gallery to see if the image has appeared there. To open the gallery, open the Photos app from the home screen.
- The "Camera Roll" gallery will be the first in the list of your albums.
- Click on it and look at the last image below - there you should find your screenshot.
- You can do the same with your iPod / iPhone.
- If you want to sync an image with your computer, you can connect your iPad to your computer using a USB cable and upload the image using iTunes.
- Once you've taken a screenshot, you can email it to yourself or someone else by selecting it from the gallery.
- If you have iCloud, your screenshots will automatically sync with other iOS devices.
