How do you uncover a Markup on iPhone?

Answered by Robert Dupre

To uncover a Markup on an iPhone, follow these steps:

1. Take a screenshot: Press the power button and the volume up button simultaneously. Alternatively, you can take a screenshot by opening the Control Center and tapping on the screenshot icon.

2. Access the Markup tools: After capturing the screenshot, a thumbnail will appear in the bottom left corner of the screen. Tap on it to open the screenshot in the Markup editor. If you cannot find the thumbnail, you can also open the image or document in an app like Photos, Files, or Mail, and then look for the Markup tools within that app.

3. Locate the highlighter tool: Once you have opened the screenshot in the Markup editor, you will see a variety of tools at the bottom of the screen. Look for the highlighter tool, which is represented by a thick marker icon. Tap on it to select the highlighter.

4. Adjust the thickness and opacity: After selecting the highlighter tool, you can further customize its appearance. Tap on the highlighter icon again to access options for thickness and opacity. Ensure that the slider for thickness is moved all the way to the right for a thicker highlighter stroke. Similarly, adjust the opacity slider to the maximum to make the highlighter color more prominent.

5. Start highlighting: With the highlighter tool selected and customized to your preference, you can now start highlighting the desired content. Use your finger or stylus to draw over the text or sections you want to highlight. The selected area will be covered with the color of the highlighter.

6. Use other Markup tools if needed: Apart from the highlighter tool, you can explore other Markup tools to annotate or edit the screenshot further. These tools include a pen, pencil, eraser, text, shapes, and more. Feel free to experiment and utilize these tools as per your requirements.

7. Save or share the annotated screenshot: Once you have finished highlighting or making any other edits, you can save the annotated screenshot to your device by tapping on the “Done” or “Save” button, usually located in the top right corner of the screen. If you wish to share the annotated screenshot with others, you can select the sharing option, such as sending it via email, messaging apps, or social media platforms.

Remember, Markup is a versatile tool that allows you to not only highlight but also add various annotations, drawings, and text to your screenshots and images. Explore its features and make the most out of it for your specific needs.
