There have been several questions about how to take a screen shot. One of our very helpful users Jennifer Lovely Melody has posted this basic tutorial to help you. If you are having trouble or need help, post your questions here!



For computers:
1. Press the Print Screen Button (Prt Sc) (For laptops, you usually need to press it along with the Function (FN) key) when you get to where you want to take the screenshot.

2. Open up Paint (Start->Accessories->Paint) and click one of the dots in the corner of the white to drag it closer to the one in the opposite direction to make it smaller.

3. Git CTRL+V (or right click and hit Paste).

4. Then crop the image using the dashed rectangle tool near the top of the tools by essentially making a square around the area you'd like to use.

5. Right click it and hit copy.

6. Hit File -> New on your picture. Then hit CTRL-V/Paste again. Then hit File -> Save

7. Name your file and then go to somewhere like http://www.tinypic.com or http://imgur.com and upload it.

Then, put the image inbetween image tags:
[*img][/*img]
But without the *'s

There's lots of tutorials and things on Google too Even videos.

I copied Jennifer's instructions for screen shots, so you can continue this conversation there! If you have any questions, create a new discussion or add to another one on the forums from here on out. Thanks!

You're welcome http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I'm glad I could help! I hope this helps lots of people. And sorry for taking up the other thread a bit!

Nikki - When you're where you want to take a screenshot.

Selsum - Did you make sure to press the function key with it? Most Laptops need to use that in order for Print Screen to work.

A few tips: Go somewhere in the game that you think represents your talent the best! You can always ask a parent to help you take the screen shot!

I know which button it is, but nothing happens when I press it! (I don't have a laptop)

Should I press it with an F.. button? And do I have to copy it and then paste it in "paint"? And something else; On the same button, under the PrtScn, there is also written SysRq. Do I have to activate it somehow, by pressing shift maybe-I don't knowhttp://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

Well, nothing will actually happen--nothing will say you took one and nothing will pop up. To see if it worked, you'd have to open up Paint or another drawing/art program and paste the image there.

If you copy anything before you do that, it'll overwrite the screenshot.

How to take a photo;
1. Go to where you want to take the picture and press shift+PrtScn

2. Open paint and size the screen by pulling the blue sircles in the corners.

3. Make a square using the tool on the right top, right click, paste.

4. Make another square on the place you want to make your photo.

5. Right click, copy.

6. File->new. Make another square as big as the white space and press paste.

7. Save your file.

8. Go to http://www.tinypic.com , browse-find your file, open, upload picture.

9. There will be some links. Highlight and copy the one saying IMG Code for forums and Message Boards.

10. Go to your post in the forum. right click, paste. There must be one in every side of the link. If there are more delete as many as neaded.

11. Press post now and HERE YOU GO!!!! [img]http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I hope this helped. If you have a laptop try to do the same-it might work.

Try cropping it before you resize it. If you can select the area that you want as your image and copy it, then you can paste it into a new Paint document and crop it so that the white area is gone. Or you could even paste it into that same Paint document and crop it so you only see the image you want.

You may want to look up directions on how to do it on a MacBook. These instructions are for PC. Or you can always ask an adult to help you!

Just to make things straight:
Find a key on your keyboard PrtScr or Print Screen.
Open up MS Paint. Right click and paste, or press Ctrl V.
If you are unable to paste anything, try pressing the Fn key or the shift key along with PrtScr.
I believe it varies for many computers and laptops. Both my computer and laptop doesn't need to press any other key than PrtScr.
I hope I helped!

How to Post a Screenshot on a Mac

When you are ready to take the picture, press and hold command shift 4. Then, drag your mouse over where you want to take the picture and release. (This will be difficult if you want to take a picture of yourself dancing.) The picture will automatically load to your desktop. When you are ready,double click on the picture at your desktop and make any edits you want. When you are done, click File, Save As, and save it to My Pictures. Go to tinypic.com and upload the screenshot. Then copy the IMG code and post the pic on a forum. Have fun!

Wait,... how do you "Open Pain" after you press print screen? And I noticed that the walkthrough thingy said "For Computers", but I'm on a laptop, so does that matter?? I'm very confused, but all you guys are awesome and TOTALLY smart, and I'm sure you all know!!

I believe it's "Open Paint." Paint is a program that should be on your computer if you have a PC (in other words, not a Mac). Just a basic program that you can use to make pictures. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif And you should be able to do it on a laptop!

You just need to find the program called "Paint" or "MS Paint" on your computer. It's a program like MS Word or Internet Explorer. Does that make sense? So it should be in your Start menu somewhere! Click on the button at the very bottom left corner of your computer screen!

when you hit the print screen button does it actually print out a picture of the screen?

When you hit the print screen button, it won't actually do anything. You won't notice anything printing and you won't see anything happen on your screen. However, when you go to paste in Paint, the whole image of the screen will be pasted!

Possible questions(since you have read the instructions)
(How to post a screenshot instructions are on page 1 and 2)

What will happen if I press prtscn(along with shift or/and Fn)?
It will do nothing. You have to paste it somewhere to see if it worked-see step two on tutorial.

Where can I find paint?
It will probably be on your screen but if not, go to the blue sircle on the bottom of your screen, or press the START button on your keyboard(usually at the bottom) and type paint. click on it and it will open.

Where is the "file" in paint?
Since paint is open, it is on the up left corner.

Why doesn't it show anything when I click paste on paint?
You have to make a square first with the first tool and click IN it.

How do I save my file?
Click on file-see question 3-and click save.

It doesn't allow me on tynipic. com?
Probably the site is down. Try again later!

It doen't show the picture on the forum/sig etc. ?
If it gives just a link you copied the wrong link. Highlight and copy the one saying IMG Code for forums and Message Boards.
If it shows a white box with a red X, see your post and check on how many are on each side of the link, or if something else-text, smileyetc.-is right near it,in other words make sure you have pressed space in each side of the link.

How do I make a signature?
By UbiDarla
1. In the menu at the top of the forum click on "Go."
2. Hover over "Personal Zone" and click on "Profile."
3. Click on "View/Edit Complete Profile."
4. There is a space for Signature - copy the link to your signature in that box.

When you press Print Screen nothing will actually happen. You won't see anything different on the screen. Please read through all of the other pages. I know I have answered that before!

Also, there is a link to a thread in the Tutorial thread where you can test out your signatures to see if they work (instead of crowding up other threads!)

I'm not quite sure wether to press Fn or not. I'm playing on a laptop, but it's hooked up to a regular monitor.

It really depends on your laptop/keyboard more than your monitor, but if you're not sure you can always try it both ways!

How can I post my screen shot on the forum

For computers:
1. Press the Print Screen Button (Prt Sc) (For laptops, you usually need to press it along with the Function (FN) key) when you get to where you want to take the screenshot.

2. Open up Paint (Start->Accessories->Paint) and click one of the dots in the corner of the white to drag it closer to the one in the opposite direction to make it smaller.

3. Git CTRL+V (or right click and hit Paste).

4. Then crop the image using the dashed rectangle tool near the top of the tools by essentially making a square around the area you'd like to use.

5. Right click it and hit copy.

6. Hit File -> New on your picture. Then hit CTRL-V/Paste again. Then hit File -> Save

7. Name your file and then go to somewhere like http://www.tinypic.com or http://imgur.com and upload it.

Then, put the image inbetween image tags:
[*img][/*img]
But without the *'s

There's lots of tutorials and things on Google too Even videos.

If you can, have a parent show you where the "start" icon is on your computer. From there you should be able to find "Accessories", from there, "Paint". Let us know if this helps, good luck!! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I get how you upload but after you upload it what do you do????
Like it comes up with like yellowish box but u cant type in it

After you upload it there should be a screen that has a few different links. You can't type in the areas where there are links. You can use your mouse to highlight the link and right click to choose the Copy option.

So you need to copy a link that would kind of look like this: http://i52.tinypic.com/jfvuyf.jpg

Then you can paste that in your Signature field in your profile. I think you might already know how to do that since you have a banner already though! Let us know if you need anymore help!

You won't notice anything happen unless you paste the image into paint. It may not say File, just click the icon in the upper left corner of paint...on mine it's dark blue...and click New. Let me know if you have any further questions. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Paint is a program you use on your computer. It should already be on your computer, so you don't have to install it. You can find it by clicking on the "Start" menu at the bottom left of your desktop (your computer screen) and then type paint in the search box.

When you open paint, click "Paste" and then you will be able to see your picture.
