Ever wonder how players take pictures in game? Well, wonder no more! I’m about to show you how. On top of that I’m going to show you how to remove the interface so you don’t have maps, buttons and stats choking up your pretty pictures.
Psst… this is for PC and Mac users!
Open the end game menu.
You can do this two ways:
A) Click on the phone
B) Use the [Esc] button
Select “Hide user interface”
Click Okay. Don’t worry, you can turn your interface back on by hitting the [Esc] button again.
Okay, this is where people get lost. Just stick with me and you’ll be okay.
You’ll need to open something to “Paste” an image into. I use “Notebook” because I can write about the pictures as well as save them but basic paint will work just fine. If you have photo shop or PSP, or even Gimp, those will work fine too.
(If you don’t have those programs, go to your accessories and open paint)
Okay, got something open and waiting?
Let’s move on.
Look at your keyboard, and find your [prnt sc] button. It stands for “Print Screen” .
If your computer has keys that shares functions like mine, it may be a secondary key. If this is the case,you’ll do this:
[fn lock] key
hold your [Fn] key as you push [prnt sc]
If you print screen key, doesn’t have other stuff on it, don’t worry about the Fn stuff.
Go to the paint program you opened (or whatever program you used)
Edit –> Paste
You’ll have something like this:
File –> Save as
Name the file what ever you like
Save it as one of the following:
Jpeg, or PNG, make sure you’re saving it somewhere you can find it. For example I have a folder on my desktop where I keep all of my SSO pictures.
Screen shots automatically save to your desktop. Lucky you!
Here’s how you do that:
Press and hold these three buttons
[Command] [Shift] 
My computer at work, makes a little camera noise that lets me know it’s working.
You’ll have to rename the file. (I think that’s a pain in the bum) and move it where you want it.
You now have an image that’s ready to be uploaded!
You can now upload your picture onto the internet! I upload my photos by Facebook and wordpress the majority of the time, but if you find that you need somewhere else to upload it, I recommend photobucket. It’s free and there’s a lots of space for pictures.
That’s how you take a screenshot. If you need help just give me a shout, I’ll do my best to walk you through it. You can also use other programs to add filters to your images, but I’ll cover that later. This is just the bare bones basics.
