How to edit screenshots on iPad

Smartphone and tablet users probably know the perks of using a screenshot. It is a simple way to capture a piece of information that you need to forward to someone or to keep it for yourself. When using various applications, it may often happen that some technical issues arise and you need to contact tech support. That’s when screenshots come in handy. Then, when you want to forward your texting communication to the third person,  it takes less time just to snap a screen to save messages and not to copy and paste them. Next time when you get a high score in a game you play, don’t forget to take a screenshot as well.


Taking screenshots cannot be easier, just press and hold the Sleep button on the top or side of your iPad device and then press the Home button. Screenshots are automatically saved in Photos, Albums, in Camera Roll folder with other photos. However, there will be times when you will need to edit a screenshot. For instance, you took a screenshot of some email communication but you don’t want to disclose all the info. In such situations you should use an app that can edit screenshots directly or at least turn them from image file formats to Word or any other editable format.


If you need to edit images in .docx format, there is an app for that- Image to Word. Image to Word converter is a mobile app that works with iPhones and iPads. This mobile app converts image file formats, even screenshots into an editable Word document. In order to edit a screenshot on iPad, you will need Image to Word and any app that views and edits .docx files, such as Microsoft Office, Libre Office, Office Suite etc.

edit screenshots


The first step is to open the app and to access your Photos folder to choose a screenshot you wish to edit. As soon as you have chosen the right screenshot, conversion will start. When the image (screenshot) is converted to .docx, the conversion result will show up within the app.


To edit a converted file, tap on the file and then on the Share button. Choose an appropriate application from the Open in menu, such as Microsoft Word and start editing a screenshot.


Image to Word app works with all types of image file formats so you don’t need to worry what format is your screenshot. When you upload a screenshot for conversion, it is sent to the conversion servers and nothing is done on your phone. In other words, you will transform your image screenshot into an editable .docx file without draining your battery.


Next time you want to send a screenshot to someone, remember that you can edit it as well and change parts of the screenshot you don’t want to be seen.

Many of you have applied for a Google Adsense account only to be routinely rejected. Even those with current accounts can find themselves banned. Thousands of people experience this on a daily basis. And the reason? It may often be unclear. Google tends to provide vague answers, but possible reasons often include policy violations and fraudulent activity. However, this needn’t be bad news. There are plenty of other advertising networks besides Google Adsense. Here are 10 top alternative advertising networks you can use to generate revenue. We’ll describe briefly how they work and why they’re a viable alternative.




With over 300 million unique monthly views across 50 000+ websites, Infolinks is currently one of the largest advertising networks in the world. They’re the leaders in Pay-Per-Click (PPC) in-text advertising. Their earning potential is high, with one of the best Click-Through Rates (CTR). Their native ads are free, work well with all ad solutions, and are highly customisable (engaging banners, contextual ads, and video); all without hampering the overall user experience. Website integration is seamless and their platform is open to publishers, small businesses and large organisations. There are no setup fees, minimum monthly page view requirements or hidden commitments. They work with quality brands such as Facebook, Amazon and TripAdvisor (among others).Their minimum payment threshold is $50 for PayPal and $100 for Wire Transfer.





Similar to Info Links, Kontera is one of the easiest advertising networks to use.

Image and video ads are also provided, with all ads based on PPC payment. Minimum payment threshold is $50 via PayPal, Check or Wire Transfer.




Chitika is the market leader in the full-fledged advertising service arena. Their focus is primarily on contextual ads.

Ads are not driven by standard keywords. You can freely use Chitika in conjunction with Adsense. All payments can occur via PayPal ($10 minimum) and check ($50 minimum). Account approval is speedy.

Amazon Associates



With the world’s largest online store and affiliate program, you might be surprised that Amazon also has an advertising program. Three types of ads are available: (1) Recommendation Ads, (2) Search Ads and (3) Custom Ads. The focus is on product advertisements. So, if you offer a product, consider using them. Ads are highly relevant (based on selected categories and blog content) and responsive (ads are provided in a responsive ad unit). You’ll be paid a small commission for everything Amazon sells through your links (even if it’s not a product recommended by you first). The only potential difficulty relates to payment. They use a check payment method, which is slower than other alternatives.

Further, if you’ve got considerable mobile traffic, they work closely with ad networks to monetize apps and increase ROI and CPM’s. For websites wanting to monetize traffic in second and third world countries (South Africa, India, Brazil, etc.) they’re a must, as they have a great fill rate for these areas. Payment occurs via Wire Transfer, Payoneer, Webmoney and Prepaid Cards.

So if you’re struggling with Google Adsense or you simply want to try something new, these 10 advertising networks are viable alternatives. Whilst we recommend trying a few advertising networks as a given, A/B testing can be used to check which is most suitable to your advertising needs.
