How to take a Screen Shot and Email it with an iPad

Take a Screen Shot - In A Nutshell

  Step 1: Locate the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons. The Home button is located directly below your iPadís display and the only button on the front-side of the iPad. The Sleep/Wake button, on the other hand, is the oval-shaped button atop the iPad in right-hand corner.  
  Step 2: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on the top or side of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, then immediately press and release the Home button.  
  Step 3: Once captured, your iPad will automatically save the screenshot directly within your camera roll (aka the Photos app). Tap the Photos app as you would normally ó the app icon faintly resembles a multi-colored flower ó and swipe to the bottom of the screen to view your recently-captured screenshot.  

Email - Method 1 From the Photos App

  1. Open the Photos app and locate the photo you want to email.  

2. Tap the share button. It's the button that has an arrow coming out of a box.

(If you want to attach multiple photos, you can do so from the screen that appears after you tap the share button. Simply tap each photo you want to attach to the email message. You can scroll through the photos by swiping from left to right or from right to left.)

3. To attach the photo(s), tap the Mail button. It is located near the bottom of the screen, usually just above the Slideshow button. 

When you tap the Mail button, a new mail message will appear from within the Photos app. There's no need to launch Mail. You can type out your email message and send it from within the Photos app.

Email - Method 2 From an Email Message

1. First, begin by composing a new message. Add text to the body of the email. 
2. You can attach a photo anywhere in the message by tapping once inside the body of the message. This will bring up a menu that includes the option to "Insert Photo or Video". Tapping this button will bring up a window with your photos in it. You can navigate to different albums to find your photo. When you have it selected, tap the "Use" button in the upper-right corner of the window.
3. On newer versions of iPad, Apple also added a button to the on-screen keyboard that allows you to quickly attach a photo to the message. This button looks like a camera and is located on the upper-right side of the keyboard just above the backspace button. This is a great way of attaching a photo while you are typing.
You can attach multiple photos by simply repeating these directions.
