Discover how to get the most out of your iPhone or iPod touch, from making calls, browsing the web, managing your time, and getting around town to taking notes, shooting photos, and listening to music. In this course, author Garrick Chow shows how to perform all of these tasks and more, and introduces the enhancements built into iOS 6, including enhanced language support and commands for Siri, shared photo streams, and the new Reply with Message feature for handling incoming calls. The course also includes hands-on demonstrations on how to accurately type and efficiently use finger gestures, and offers tips for personalizing the setup of the iPhone and iPod touch. An extensive section on troubleshooting helps when the occasional glitch happen.
Sometimes the photo you want to shoot on your iPhone or iPod touch is of the screen itself. Maybe your device is acting strangely, maybe you just hit the high score in a game you're playing and you want evidence of your achievement to send to friends. Maybe you want to use a still frame from a movie or TV show you're watching as your phone's wallpaper. The point is that it's very easy to take a screen shot of whatever is on your iPhone or iPod touch's screen. Let's say I'm currently out here in sunny California where the weather is warm and pleasant, meanwhile back home on the East Coast my friends are freezing in the cold and snow.
I want to send them a photo of the current temperature out here, which I'm sure they will enjoy seeing. I'll open up the Weather app and the weather looks fine. So to take a screen shot hold down the Sleep/ Wake button and then press the Home button. The screen flashes white, you hear the little camera shutter sound effect and that's it. Now alternately you can also press the Home button first and then press the Sleep/Wake button to take the shot. As long as both buttons are being pressed down at the same point, the screen shot will happen. Okay, so to see my screen shot I'll go to my Photo library, into my Camera Roll and here's my screen shot.
And at this point I could email this photo, or send it via a text message, or I could grab the image when I connect my device to my computer. Basically I now have a nice sharp image of my screen that I can do anything with. And that's how you take a still image of your iPhone or iPod touch's screen.
