Getting pictures on your phone without the camera

On your iPad or your iPhone you can get a picture of what is on your screen or a screenshot really easily. At the top of your iPhone and iPad there is a button which turns the device On and Off. It is at the opposite side from the HOME button. If you hold BOTH the On/Off button and the HOME button at the same time and let go at the same time it takes a picture of whatever is on your screen. To see the picture go to the Photo Library and look at the Camera Roll. It should be the last photo on the roll.

From the Photo Library you can email it to someone or even set it as the wallpaper (background image) on your device. The screenshots that are used in my blog today were taken with the method described. I then emailed them to myself and opened and saved them into my laptop so that I could use them in this blog. On the Apple site it suggests that you could also use this method to prove to someone that you got a high score on a game!

Another thing you can do is to take a picture that you find on the Internet and save it into your Photo Library so that you can use it some other way. All you need to do is to hold your finger down on the image that you want to save. A window will come up asking you what you want to do with the photo. You can choose to save it in the Photo Library and a copy will be made. You can find it by going to the Photos on your device.
