"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 You must register/login in order to see the link. for years now and swear by it. Not free though, need to buy a license for it ($$).
    • if you're into freebie apps You must register/login in order to see the link. 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

    Gadwin's Print Screen is a good freebie.

    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 You must register/login in order to see the link..

    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:

    [​IMG]

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

    [​IMG]

    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).

    The crop tool should be mentioned.

    Another thing worth mentioning - if you just hit Print Screen you print your entire screen, including your destop and other windows that may be active at the same time.

    If you hold down the ALT key and then hit the Print Screen, it only captures the top 'active' window. So if you're playing at a casino and ALT+PrintScreen you get only the casino - if you're playing at a casino and get an error message window and use ALT+PrintScreen you get just the error message.

    I´m having trouble managing attachments due to lack of space (so it seems anyway). I have checked my profile and deleted old attachments from there and when I go into "Manage attachments" it says "0 of 97,7KB used". That´s too small to attach even one JPEG-file. I can see some of my old attachments lined up in this area but when I select them all there are no "Delete"-button. What can I do?

    Same here

    I am having the same problem. Can't free up space to post new screen shots. The old ones can't be deleted from the drag and drop menu in the attachment manager. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    It would really be a shame, if people start deleting screenshots from the screenie section. We'd get a long list of nothing in there. Better cough up some more space CM ;)

    I think people are running into this problem only when they are still classified as Newbie Members as they have very limited space available. When you're classified as Full Member or up the problems with space are over as the limitations disappear :thumbsup:
