    Hi, all. Did a search and came up dry. I can do this on my Note 10.1, but want to know if I can do this on my S3:

    1) Take a screen shot, then
    2) Write on the screen shot, then
    3) Share it (Facebook, email, etc).

    What I am doing now is bringing it into S-Note, but that's clumsy. Is there a better way?

    Thanks for any guidance!

    i'm not sure how the Galaxy Note 10.1 does it, but that would be the steps i would take to write on a screenshot for the Galaxy S3.

    i'm assuming on the GN10.1 you're prompted to draw on it immediately? or something similar to where the ease of use is there?

    If you mean the soft menu button on the frame (to the left of the Home button), I don't have an option for edit. I have:

    Delete
    Face tag
    Copy to clipboard
    Crop
    Set as
    Buddy photo share
    Print
    Rename
    Scan...
    Details

    Am I looking in the wrong place? I have a U. S., Verizon S3.

    Yes; a screen shot in the Note immediately displays a pen and eraser tool. I didn't know if there was a similar feature in the S3. So far, haven't found it.

    Download photo editor. The soft key will then bring up edit Ithink .
