    Default Google Earth for Dummies

    How would one go about learning how to take a snap shot of his training property from google earth and down load to an I-Pad? I would like to be able to pre plan sets prior to training with wind being the primary factor which is sometimes easily known. I also need to know if set ups can be saved and edited for future use. Hopefully, I am not getting ahead of myself since I have not asked wifey if she will let me use her "Machine" for this type of work.

    Probably many different ways to accomplish this..I use google earth and use the measuring tool to draw the lines to the marks or blinds this also gives you the distances, If using windows 7 i use the snipit tool to capture the image..Then you can use a program like paint to add details.
    You should also be able to do this using the i-pad,,i use my i-phone to get similar results .

    I can't link the thread I started about it from my phone but your using an iPad just download the google earth and a I like sketch pad express to edit but some like other apps. When you get your grounds pulled up and turned at the angle you want press the home key at the bottom of your iPad and the lock key at top at the same time. This will take a snap shot of the screen and save it to your photos. From there you can open it in a sketch pad app and edit it. If you search my threads there are some pics there.

    The easiest ways to capture an image you're looking at on your screen is ALT>CTRL>Printscreen

    Yes there is a Print Screen key on your keyboard above the number keys. This basically puts it on the clipboard as if you just Right Clicked and Copied it.

    Then you can RightClick>Paste it on your desktop. RightClick>Copy then open up a Photoshop type program, New Project then RightClick>Paste. The screen shot will pop up.

    Save the original so you can always start fresh with the editing.

    Make sense?

    Like the screen shot below.
