How to Take ScreenShots using Opera Mini

First of all, I would like to refer you to this Post which tells us how we can take Screenshots of anything displaying on our phone’s, it’s very much easier and flexible but it’s only for Symbian phones, but this post will tell us how to use the World’s number One Mobile browser, Opera Mini to take Screenshots of webpages as we browse with it.
It will be beneficial especially to those using s40 or other phones different from Symbian, though the Opera works on both s40 and s60 phones, a very large advantage of s60 over s40 phones right?.
And… Yes, there are many Operas that can take screenshots, this one seems to be the easiest to use, I’m talking about Opera mini Mod 4.21 beta9HandlerUI by the same great modder called Sir Handler.

* This Opera Mini app is in J2ME platform (.jar file format)
* It has been Modded incase you have an FBTweak to make it browse for for free
* Screenshotter embedded, which is the main reason of writing this post.
* File size – 420kB. Don’t worry so much about the size, it runs perfectly well on s40v3 phones and Upwards.

I actually chose to use the ( * ) button for taking my screenshots in my Nokia 3110c, an s40v3 phone, so you can take that button as a reference when choosing your own screenshotter key.
Remember if you found it helpful, perhaps, someone out there could be needing it too, use the SHARE buttons below, and as I would always say, it takes nothing less than 5 seconds to share.
