I've been so envious of iPhone users' weather screenshots in their PL layouts. Now I can include them in mine. I just learned how to take them with my iPad mini. Thanks YouTube.

How are you printing these? I tried to upload some to Walgreen photo website, but they wouldn't upload because they are a different type file.
Thanks!

I'm just doing this for the first time this week in my PL. we had some warm days for January and I thought of it.

what I did, 2msanders, was email it to myself. it came as a png so I was going to make a canvas in Photoshop elements at 4x6, add the screenshot, then save it as a jpeg and order the photo. hope this helps

I like adding the weather screen shots too, especially when we have unusual weather or temps. I am also taking screenshots occasionally of the days gas prices using the Gas Buddy app.

Thanks, Laura. I don't have Photoshop, so I won't be able to do that. I just need to do some research and see if there is a way for me to do it.
I bought some ink and photo paper to see if they would print on my Epson.

I have a Samsung Galaxy 3 and if you use hand motion (use settings to turn on) I just swipe my hand across phone and it takes a screen shot. Hope this helps, it really is cool.

Now I am intrigued about how to take this screenshot using an iPhone. Can anyone tell me what setting to set? I have a 3GS, is it possible to take screenshots from an older iPhone like mine?

Not sure if it will work on the older iPhones, but all you do is push the home button and sleep/ wake button at the same time.

I use Apple's iCloud to get my pictures from my ipad mini to my computer. Everyone with an an iPhone, Mac, ipad, iTouch has 5 GB of free storage. You can even use a PC. The link below explains how iCloud works.

http://www.apple.com/icloud/features/photo-stream.html

At the end of the page there are directions explaining how to set it up.

2msanders, I hope this will help you. By the way my daughter and brother and his wife live in Lexington, SC. Do you live near there?

Ah, iCloud. I think it is time to set that up! It will mean upgrading to Mountain Lion for me, bu I love the idea of taking a photo on my iPhone and having it show up on my Mac! Sometimes technology is so amazing!

It is really handy to have your photos from your iphone go directly to my iPad and mac. Love having them handy when I am ready for them.

What a great idea. I have a Galaxy 3G (or something) and knew about swiping you hand to get a screen shot - but could not figure out why I would want to do that.

Now I know. Just emailed myself the picture.

this will be so cool - but now I will have to do this everyday just incase I need it in a layout. LOL

Darn - too bad I did not know about it for the warm days we just had - but we could get some -30 days yet.

It even has the date right on the shot - don't have to try and remember or anything.... LOL LOL

Thanks for sharing....

I try to remember to take one every Sunday night. But I've been taking daily ones with the bitter cold mornings we have been having.

I'm just getting back into digital scrapbooking, so reading "all" the forums tonight. I've been wondering how people do the screenshots. I have a Galaxy SII and the instructions (home button & sleep) worked the same on my phone. Oh how fun this will be for weather screenshots. I also used it for a recipe that was texted to me!
