How to take screenshots of your phone using drocap2

Whether it's a technical problem or sharing my downloaded games and apps with friends, I take screenshots and post them to blogs, chat etc.

First of all, please make it very clear that your phone must be rooted. I had written a post here about rooting. So once you are rooted, download Drocap2 from the market.

 Now install it, and after you're done, open the app. Drocap2 gives dark bluish screenshots on galaxy 5, so that shouldn't make much a difference. Press the menu button(1st button on top left) of your galaxy 5, it'll show you Prefs and Info. Press prefs. to open preferences, here you can choose the capture trigger type, the folder, file format, filename prefix etc. All these have been explained in the screenshots below. Happy screen capturing
