It's quite a good game ....

But ....
... that was my score - so I thought I'd help start the thread :rolleyes:

Forgive the really stupid questions...:

How does one post a screen capture from a PC?

How does one post a screen capture from a Mac?

I use Gadwin for PC myself, as it's easy to use! Just set up your defaults and away you go! Hit Print Screen on your keyboard and the pic is captured and in which ever folder you chose. Then I use Irfanview as a simple picture cropper. Open pic with Irfanview and use mouse to capture the area - go to Edit and hit "Crop Selection" - go to File and "Save file as" and save it to where ever you want it and upload it to ImageShack and post from there! :)

Both are free, too! :fonz:

The Easiest Way is to Use The PrintScrn Button on Your Keyboard

Posted Image

That Copies Whatever is On Your Screen into Your Clipboard

You Then Paste That into whichever Image Program you Prefer (Paint's Fine)

Crop it to Size, Save it, Use Image Shack or some other image hosting site To Post it ...

.... I've, personally never used a Mac but you'll find comprehensive info Here

It's been a while since I used a mac, too, but IIRC

  • To capture the entire screen, press Command+Shift+3.
  • To capture part of a screen, press Command+Shift+4.
    (The cursor will then turn into a cross-hairs icon. Click and drag over an area to select it. When you release the mouse button, the image is taken, and you'll hear a snapshot sound.)

If you hold control down with either of those, then the capture goes to the clipboard instead of a file.

(No, Omni - I did not practice this game 500 million times before posting it. I sucked at it until this last time when I was surprised by the score. Invincibilty helped a lot!)

Just sayin'! :P

If you go into Gadwin and set the image to rectangle, when you capture the image you can crop it in the same programme :)
