With the advent of modern technology, many doctors and medical students are turning to electronic notes rather than the more traditional hand written format. One advantage of electronic notes is their flexibility in terms of formatting and storage whilst another is the ability to add pictures directly.

A number of medical apps and articles read in web browsers contain impressive images which would be very useful in understanding a particular topic. However, it is not common for there to be an export option.  This is not a problem as we will show you how to use the inbuilt screenshot feature to manually export the images from your iPad or iPhone for personal use.
