How does one transfer screenshots (crtl + prscr) to a file? Is it automatically converted and dropped in a folder? Do i have to copy paste each shot one by one?

Ok, so if I take 4 shots in a row, they dont overwrite each other? Paint will recognize a .tga and convert to jpg?  Reply with quote

Or just press the Print Screen key and that just puts in on your clipboard. Then open My Favourite Graficks Program or whatever you use and Paste. Top it off with a Save As LookitThis.jpg and viola. Or cello, as you may prefer.

well it won't overwrite it, you can take as many as you want but i'm afraid paint can't read .tga, i know there is a free program that does read them but i can't remember it's name, i'll post it as soon as i remember.

JPG is best - it can be shared as easily as Sep's Mom.

OK, now THAT was immature.

OK everyone says different stuff here. So I will just tell you how I do:

I see something cool/interesting/gossipable and decide to keep this as a memory, by taking a screenshot.
1. Press Print Screen (Prt Sc)
2. Open up NWN folder
3. Locate the .tga files
4. Open up appropriate .tga file/s (my default prog for this is Microsoft Picture It!)
5. Save it with a new, appropriate name and also make it a JPEG (.jpg)

There, the new file should now be done. Not very large, and if you are running at a resolution 1024x768 or lower, it should be ok to post in galleries (if that's your goal).

That's how I do it, and it always works nicely. Keeps a nice picture quality, small in size, and resolution is ok.

Sep you just thanked Kindo by calling him big.

Either that or my grasp of Spanish is about as complete as Jon when sober.

Anyways, why bother looking for the files? Just PrintScreen, open program (even Word or Mickeysoft Paint will work), Paste and Save.

I think "Grande" is more used as "large" than big (yes there IS a difference)

*TP ties, unties, then ties shoes again about 4 times*
*TP realizes the previous arrangement has him tying tied shoes*
*TP unties the shoes before tying them again, before the 4 times*
*make that make sense, damn it*

Well, I know some 30-something can't-stop-being-dumb-jock guys who compliment each other by saying something like "Thanks! That's HUGE, dude!" Is that what you were going for, Sep?

Or should I take your O-so-mature suggestion and STFU?

Actually I think it will just stop making screen shots after you get so many. I had like 40 or so in my folder at one time and I can remember not being able to take a screen shot until I moved them to a subfolder (named it Screenshots and is in the NWN folder)But, since I moved them all, and began anew, I cannot move them to that subfolder to clear out more room when I need it unless I make a 3rd subfolder....Ugh....just goes to show you, save them as JPG's, rename them something you can remember, and keep them elsewhere....converting AS you make them (after each sesssion) or you'll end up like me.... icon_biggrin.gif

screenshots are damning evidence.... i am so glad i have so many of everything...

speeking of something, sarah isn't me just some person here on the forums, -if- n' she is an actual girl (which i will never believe until i see proof) then she is obviously nothing like me and i am nothing like her, if she wants to take on an ownage bitch attitude against someone insulting her then more power to her, seems like people dont understand that insulting works both ways... and if she is me, but a clone and a girl, i would be honestly scared out of my mind... that wouldnt be a pretty site


(jk sarah icon_razz.gif )

icon_mrgreen.gif



screenshots are so easy to make, and so many different ways to make them too, i like kindos method a little but i have my own way of making them... i press printscreen and then it copies it to clipboard and to a blank paint image then saves it in my documents and gives it the filename screenshot0001 and so on, very simple for me... all i have to do is press a button.... icon_twisted.gif

I'm going to get a screen shot of Sarah on her knees praying to me to not cut her fool head off -- just like a Skellie.
