Hi! Thanks for reading. This post looks better in our award-winning app, Tips & Tricks for iPhone.

It’s possible to save images from apps by taking a screenshot of the current view on your iPad. This automatically saves a snapshot of your display to the device camera roll.

If your iPad doesn’t have a Home button, you can take a screenshot by holding the On/Off and Volume Up buttons at the same time. The screen flashes and – if your device isn’t on Silent mode – a camera shutter sound will play.

For iPads with a Home button, press the Home and On/Off buttons at the same time to take a screenshot.

You’ll see a little preview of the screenshot in the bottom left of the screen. This will disappear after a few seconds, or you can swipe it off screen. Tapping it allows you to annotate the screenshot.

The screenshot can then be found in the Photos app.
