    Well, I guess this applies to most all of the newer iDevices and iOS4 devices... but:

    I turned 'white on black' on for fun, and some of my pictures looked really cool and interesting when the colors were switched. So, I tried taking a screenshot of white on black image... but obviously when I turned white on black off, it went back to normal. Is there any way to take a screenshot of the white on black image? or is there a way to upload an image to photobucket, or send it via bluetooth to your computer when it is white on black(and have it stay that way)?

    Thanks

    Sam

    White on black is just inverted colors. It is a hardware feature if I'm not mistaken... So the screenshot feature won't be able to capture it as screenshot is only captured from software buffer.

    In any case, you can try using Photoshop or GIMP (free) to invert the colors manually if you'd like to have it that way.

    sorry for the bump, but is there a reason for the white on black or is it just a "we'll throw it in and see what happens" kinda thing

    For some people with poor eyesight it is easier to read white text on a black background. Since most websites use black on white formatting its easiest just to invert the colours. You can do it on a mac too press ctrl+option+cmd+8 and it does the same thing.
