Creating Screenshots & Snippets
Learn how to take a screenshot of the geographical area you'd like to have made into a custom map. This helps us immensely. We suggest using Google Maps or Bing Maps to first find your location. We recommend a snipping tool, so you can draw a box around the exact map area you'd like to include. Alternatively, you can also resize your browser window so that it includes your map area, and then take a screenshot.
Windows (7 or later) If you're not familiar with the snipping tool, here's a video on how to find/use the snipping tool. In windows 10, click the search icon in the lower left of the monitor, and search for 'snipping tool', or look for the app icon with scissors.
Apple iPhone & iPad Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on the top or side of your device. Immediately press and release the Home button. To find your screenshot, go to the Photos app > Albums and tap Camera Roll.
Apple Command + Shift + 4. Most versions come with an app called Grab (as in "screen grab"), in your Utilities folder. It will let you take screenshots with your mouse instead of having to memorize the shortcuts. Click the Capture menu for the commands Selection, Window, Screen, and Timed Screen.
Android Press and hold together the power + and volume-down buttons, or if your device has a home button (like Samsung Galaxy), press and hold together the power + home buttons. Check your photo gallery app for the saved screenshot.
