With My iPad Games, when the iTunes store does not give me a good screenshot of the game, I take the screenshots myself and upload it to my server (although it does take a lot of good space and bandwidth).
How do I do it? Simple!
Taking a Screencap for the iPad
1. Go to the image you want to take a screenie of.
For this example, I am going to take a screen capture of on of my favorite games, Infinity Blade 2 (gorgeous game… must try). Please ignore the coffee maker.
2. Next, press the Home and On/Off buttons at the same time.
As shown in the picture. You will know the iPad took a screen capture when it flashes white.
3. Now you can sync the picture into your computer.
Using iTunes, of course.
3.5 You can also send the picture through an email address you can access from your PC.
Tap the square thingy on the upper right, tap email photo. Send it to your Gmail or Yahoo for easy access.
Here is the finished image! You can edit the ginormous file size or rotate the image using your favorite image editing tool like Microsoft Office Picture Manage, GIMP or Adobe Photoshop. I prefer the first one.
What if I want to crop the image?
I have this very nifty trick that does not use of an app. Go to the pictures album, zoom into the area you want then take a screenshot again!
Below is a product of this process:
Fun! You can also use this process to crop real photographs or zoom in into important details (I use this to zoom into important text, like details in Facebook chat, affiliate earnings and more.).
