    Yes, Just include a "Pause" action after the screenshot or take picture step and then place the "loop" action.

    For "Pause", set the Pause time to the number of seconds you'd like it to wait before you take a picture again.

    So the workflow would be

    Take Screen shot

    Pause

    Loop
