Step-by-Step Guide to Taking Partial Screenshots on Your Apple iPhone 8

Taking partial screenshots on your Apple iPhone 8 is a great way to capture only the most important parts of an image or webpage. This guide will walk you through the steps necessary to take a partial screenshot on your device.

Step 1: Open the page or image that you want to take a partial screenshot of.

Step 2: Press and hold down both the Home button and Power button at the same time for two seconds. You should see a white flash appear on your screen, indicating that you have successfully taken a screenshot.

Step 3: Tap on the preview of your screenshot in the bottom left corner of your screen. This will open up an editing window where you can crop and edit your image as desired.

Step 4: Use two fingers to pinch outwards from each other in order to zoom out from the image until it is at its smallest size possible without losing any detail from it.

Step 5: Drag one finger across the part of the image that you want to keep, while dragging another finger around it in order to select only that portion of it for cropping purposes. Once selected, tap “Done” in order to save this selection as its own separate file within Photos app on your device.
