The art of the iPod touch screenshot

Two things that iPod Touch users might want to discover:

1. How to take a screenshot on your iPod Touch.

Get whatever you want to shoot on screen, then hold down the Home button at the bottom of your screen and do a quick click on the Power button on the top of your iPod… like you are clicking the shutter. The screen will flash white and your screenshot will be saved into your photo album. Look for it there.

Donna drew and emailed this little piece of art to me, directly from her iPod photo album.

Which brings us to:

2. A wi-fi art app you can use on your iPod Touch (or iPhone)

Go to this URL and draw with your finger. You can change brushes and continue drawing. Change colours, too. When you’re done, save it as a screenshot, since you can, now.

BTW, Mr. Doob is a clever guy with a lot of interesting stuff to explore. His drawing app works on your iPod because it does not depend on Flash. This may mean nothing to you, but it’s a good thing.

Bill – sent this info about a half hour ago and usually there is a message that it is awaiting moderation….no such message when I checked. So…….to turn the text upsidedown & backwards, I put my keyboard behind the monitor & turned the monitor upsidedown…..heheh…..but really use……..>

Thanks for the explanation and the link, Paul. Sevenwires explains and I could look at the source code, too. I think I was just a little slow to do the approvals for your comments. They seem to have gotten through OK and they are showing now. Thanks for leaving them, BTW. Feedback is sooooo rare.

always glad to be of help…..getting late & I must retire for the night. Looking forward to seeing you soon
