Screen Cap - Screen Shots

How to do a Screen cap on different Oprating Systems and Iphone

On Microsoft Windows, pressing Print Screen captures a screenshot of the entire desktop and places it
in the clipboard, while Alt+Print Screen captures only the active window. In most versions of Windows, captured screen shots do not include the mouse pointer.Once captured, the screenshot must be pasted from the clipboard into a separate program, such as Paint or Word, in order to be viewed or saved. Once you have done this you would need to upload your screen cap via Photobucket or simpler photo-uploading site.

On Mac OS X, a user can take a screenshot of an entire screen by pressing Command-Shift-3, or of a chosen area of the screenby Command-Shift-4. A shell utility called "screencapture" (located in /usr/sbin/screencapture) can be used from the Terminal application or in shell scripts to capture screenshots and save them to files. Various options are available to choose the file format of the screenshot, how the screenshot is captured. You would then need to upload your screen cap at a Phto-uploading site such as PhotoBucket

On iOS A screenshot can be taken with the iPhone OS by pressing and holding the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button; the screen will flash and the picture will be stored in PNG format in the "Camera Roll" on the iPhone or in "Saved Photos" on the iPod touch. The screenshot feature is only available with iPhone OS 2.0 and later. You would then need to upload the Screen Cap at a site such as Photobucket.
