Taking & Posting Screenshots

Postby Viking Jess » Fri Dec 12, 2014 5:52 pm

Hey everyone! We've got an even easier way to post your pictures!

Click right here!

Hey YoFans!

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:

Code: Select all
[img]YOUR PHOTO LINK HERE[/img]


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

Woo :3 I'm a Chromebook user and I think there are a few more of us out there? :)
Here it is if your one of us :P
(Make sure the setting for top row is not F1, F2 etc.)
1) Hold Shift, Ctrl & Square with 3 lines to the right
2) Select the area you want to screenshot
3) It will save as "Screenshot YYYY-MM-DD at HH:MM.png"

Hello! I uploaded the photo to the contest, but it looks small. I think it was the format in which I recorded. How I can change the picture?

I have a windows 8, all you have to do is get that side screen to pop up and click search.

Enter in the search field "Snipping Tool" and that is how you get it. :)

If you have the img link then just input it between these img tags:
Code: Select all
[img]        [/img]


or just click 'Full Editor' above your comment box, and look for the box that says "img" click it, then post your link between the img tags that show up.
