Default Way to Capture Screen and Create GIF

How to Take a Screenshot on Galaxy S8

When it comes to taking screenshot, there is no much of a difference but instead the functions are upgraded to make them more reliable and functional as before. With the S8 the traditional key-combination is still available, but this time you should press “Volume Down” and “Power” simultaneously unlike the previous versions that requires pressing of “Home” and “Power” buttons.

And aside from the palm swipe and scroll capture, there’s an additional panel which you also take screenshot from and it’s the Smart Panel. Simply pen this panel, look for the screen capture function and you’re done.

On the other hand, there could be some users that want to capture a whole webpage from their S8 but are hesitant to do it. To avoid any hesitations and confusions, here is a simple guide that will help you take scroll capture on Galaxy S8.

How to Record GIF on S8 and S8+

Aside from the panels for app shortcuts and control panel, the Galaxy S8 now comes with a new panel called Smart Select. This would help you create GIF on Galaxy S8 without using an extra application. Since images sharing is popular on many social media pages, creating a GIF image right from your smart phone definitely makes a difference. It case you can’t see the Smart Select from your S8 function just yet, then there’s need to worry. Just rely on the steps below and you can create your own GIF image in no time.

In spite of these, some users think that 15 seconds is not enough. And the inability to tap the menus or use the device when you’re recording GIF is some drawbacks that we hope will be fixed in the succeeding upgrades. While waiting for this to happen, you can instead make use of an alternative application that can provide you with this function.
