Need a screenshot for a presentation or report, or maybe just to brag convincingly about the insanely high score you just made in a game? Simultaneously hold down the Home and Sleep/Wake buttons, then release them together. You'll hear the same shutter snap sound the iPhone makes when you use the built-in camera to take a photo, and you'll find the snapshot in the Photos app --in the Camera Roll album on iPhone and in Saved Photos on iPad and iPod touch. You can then use the Share button on your device to send it directly via email or MMS or even upload it to MobileMe Gallery if you're a subscriber. And of course you can import these screenshots to your computer with your favorite photo app and use them with any application that accepts images. Also, on iPad you can move the screenshots directly from Saved Photos into Keynote via the built in Photo Browser which lets you choose among all the images you have in the Photos app.
