    "How To" Screenshots: fire away!

    Hi everyone,

    I'm working on a new section for the
    FAQ
    wherein I want to detail the wonderful world of screenshots.
    • What applications should one use for screenshots, or not?
    • What caveats and gotchas should players know?
    • Any tricks and tips from the Casinomeister faithful?


    So post your "takings screenshots" suggestions here, or questions if you've got 'em.

    I expect this will evolve over time so I'll update the questions and answers as need be.

    FWIW
    , I will incorporate Simmo's info posted here: How To Create A Screenshot.

    Let me chip in with a few of my experiences:

    • some casino packages seem to hijack the PrintScreen button (under Windows) so you can't always count on that technique.
    • a good screen-grab application can be invaluable: I've used SnagIt for years now and swear by it. Not free though, need to buy a license for it ($$).
    • if you're into freebie apps PicPick is good, though it is not as full-featured as something like SnagIt (nor as bloated!).

    I use snagit for vids and screen caps, the best part is you can set it up to screen cap and auto name and auto save so you don't even have to bother with going and pasting and saving and naming yourself. You don't necessarily have to buy it per say, just look around, it can be had. Very good program tho'.

    Windows vista has a built in snip tool. Thats the easiest way to take screenshots as you have full control of which areas you want to take screenshots of. There is also a marker to highlight part of the screenshot.

    You can choose rectangular screenshots or freeform like this

    Hiya. Also, a lot of people do not know how to get their screen shot to appear on message boards. I use Photobucket. You go to their site, and the set up is free. They host all your pictures there for free.

    At photobucket, you hit upload, and browz, to get the picture off your pc you want to upload. It takes about 5-10 seconds to do. Then, move your cusor over the picture, and boxes appear underneath it. Right click on, "link" and copy. Now come here, and click, "paste" and Weeeeeee.

    I have mentioned this before but Gadwin printscreen is free and a small download.

    Works perfect everytime.

    I already know how to do the screen shot. How do I do I post in the forum? Can you please give me advice? I have one ready to post the paint from my desktop.

    Thanks

    When you post, look below the typing area for a button marked "Manage Attachments".
    Click on that & then it is all pretty clear.
    You need to make sure your picture is the right size first or strange things can happen!
    I have a guide here.

    I hope it's a good one!

    KK's thing sounds good. Here's a "once over lightly" guide through the posting process:

    Start like you would for any other post, scroll down until you see the "Manage Attachments" button:



    This will open up the 'Manage Attachments" pop-up:



    Repeat steps 1: and 2: for each attachment you want to display (note that there are file dimension and size limits). When you're done click on "Close this window" (step 3).
