I don't know what I did wrong. The link is ocrrect, but I can't get the image to show up. I used Imgur. I'm so disappointed. I wanted to enter the current contest. :grr

Can anyone help me, please. I feel so stupid. :(

how to post an animated screenshot
this is my "how to"


-download Gif Recorder. No spyware or ads. Here's the link:
http://gifrecorder.com/exes/gifrecordersetup.exe

-Have your Yoworld room open and set up how you want it shown on the forum.
-Start Gif Recorder. I have Windows 10. I just hit the windows button on my keyboard while I have my Yoworld room open in my browser to open it. When Gf Recorder opens it will have a red box overlaid on your open browser window. Re position the box over the area you want to record and then hit the green "start recording" button above the left corner of the box. When done recording hit the stop button (also above the box) and the box will dissappear for a second and the "save as"menu appears. I always change where it saves to the desktop so i can find it afterwards.

-In another window on your browser, goto:
http://giphy.com/create/upload
click on "browse your .gif files" and select the gif you just made (thats why it's helpful to know where it saved to)
-upload it.
When it finishes uploading it wil give you the option to share. DON"T choose that one. Click "advanced" and copy the link for the GIF download (if you click download it will just save it to your computer. You want the LINK, that's all)
-When you post in the forum here, post like you would a normal screenshot (using the Img button) and the paste the link you just copied from Gifhy.com in the middle of the brackets like this [img]pasteyourlinkhere[/img]
-preview before you submit (i have a hard time pasting it properly the first try)
done!

BTW if the screenshot you want to post is not animated, you don't have to do it this way!

Taking screenshots might be something you’ll want to get the hang of, in case you want to participate in any upcoming YoWorld contests! Here are some ways that you can take a screenshot:


On a Windows Vista PC or newer:
1. Open the Start menu, navigate to the Accessories folder, and click Snipping Tool.
2. Click “New”. Your screen should desaturate, and your cursor will change to a ‘crosshair’ shape.
3. Use your mouse to click and drag across the area you’d like to be in the image (for our purposes, this will be the YoWorld screen!).
4. Click File> Save As.
5. In the box that pops up, change the "Save As" type to JPG.
6. After typing in a name for the image, choose a location on your hard drive to save to such as the Desktop, and click "Save".

On any other Windows PC:
1. Hold down the “Alt” key, then press the "Print Screen" or "Prt Scr" button on your keyboard.
2. Open Microsoft Paint by clicking Start> All Programs> Accessories> Paint.
3. Click inside the white area.
4. Go to the Edit menu, and select Paste. If you'd like, you can edit the image to ‘trim’ it down to your YoWorld screen.
5. Click File> Save As.
6. In the box that pops up, change the "Save As" type to JPG.
7. After typing in a name for the image, choose a location on your hard drive to save to such as the Desktop, and click "Save".

On a Mac:
1. Hold down the Cmd-Shift-4 keys simultaneously.
2. Press the spacebar.
3. Click the window that you're playing YoWorld in, and the screenshot should appear as a file on the desktop labeled: "Picture 1".



To post your screenshot to the forums:

Once you have your picture saved, upload it to your favourite hosting site! Some options include imgur, tinypic, or photobucket - but most popular image hosting sites will work. Instructions for your chosen site should be available from them directly.

Once it's been uploaded, your image hosting site should give you a link to your image (one that says "Direct Link" or something similar is what will work for this). Copy the link and paste it into your comment window, then put [img] tags around it. It will look something like this:

Feel free to play around in this thread to practice - But remember to go back to your Contest thread to post your picture!
