Share Skype Drawings via Message with Microsoft Lumia 535
Edited by Thor, Rushell, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to sharing a drawing in a message when using the Skype application on a Microsoft Lumia 535.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on the right-hand side of the phone.
Once the phone is activated, we will see the lock screen. Swipe the lock screen up, and this will take us to the home screen.
On the home screen, we need to find the Skype tile. It has a blue tile background, and in the middle there is the Skype logo. This is a white circle with a blue letter "S" inside. If the Skype tile has not been pinned to the home screen, swipe left to find it in the Apps menu.
Once the Skype tile has been located, press down on it, and it will allow us to enter the application. In the application, we need to find a contact to send a drawing to. There are two ways to do this. The first is in the "recent" section. At the top is the word "recent" in a darker blue text. This page lists all the recent communications we have had with contacts and other people. We can choose a contact from here.
Alternatively, we can swipe left until we arrive at the "people" section. At the top of the screen, it says "people" in a darker blue text. On this page we can find the complete list of all of our Skype contacts.
To choose a contact to send a drawing to, press down on their name or profile photo.
Now, we have entered our own private chat with them. From here, we have the option to add the drawing and send them the drawing via messenger.
To do this, we need to press the icon located at the bottom left corner of the screen. It is a blue circle with a white plus sign inside. Pressing on that will bring up a new menu of options.
On the bottom is the option to "share drawing". Just to the left of that is is an image of a pen, pencil, or paintbrush.
Press down on "share drawing" or its icon, and it will bring up our painting and drawing section.
We have different colors at the top. There's blue, black, green, yellow and red. Swipe across the dots to discover even more colors.
We can press on any of those colors until the spot gets bigger, which indicates that we have selected that color.
We can choose the line thickness by pressing on the icon at the top right corner of the screen. There are three horizontal lines of varied thicknesses. Two are gray, and one is black. Each time the icon is pressed, it changes to a different line thickness. We can continue pressing to cycle through the options.
To draw, we just touch the screen and drag.
Press the icon at the top right-hand corner again. That will change the thickness.
Draw another line below the first one.
Press the icon in the top right corner again.
It's going to change the thickness once again.
We can also write a word. Remember we're just pushing down on the screen, then holding and dragging. Just let go when finished. If we want to send this, we have the options at the bottom in the blue bar at the bottom of the screen.
To send the drawing, press the icon on the left. It is a white circle with a white envelope followed by three horizontal lines, indicating movement.
If we are not happy with the drawing, we can press the second icon on the right to go back and start over. It is a white circle with a white arrow inside curved toward the left.
We are very happy with this and want to send it; therefore, we want to press the send icon. This is the white envelope in the white circle on the left at the bottom of the screen. Now, the drawing will be sent to our friend.
It has loaded and has been sent successfully.
