[✔] Share or Copy the Screenshot to your Client device:

When your screenshot is ready, you can send it to the client device in the way you prefer. I usually share it to the my private Online Photos to avoid to copy it manually and make it available on any device. The touch profile could also be created on the server side, but it is preferable to create it on the client device as it is easier to edit with the touch screen.
