You can also draw on your partial screenshots using various tools such as pen, brush, text box etc., which are available under “Drawing Tools” option located at bottom left corner of edit mode window. Once you have finished drawing or writing whatever you wanted to add onto your partial screenshot, tap “Done” again at top right corner followed by tapping “Save” located at bottom right corner of edit mode window to save it onto device storage or cloud storage if enabled for that particular account/app used for saving screenshots/images taken from device camera/gallery app etc..
