I KNOW THAT THIS PAGE IS UGLY. BUT IT'S ALSO VERY USEFUL... AND SINCE I DON'T HAVE TIME TO UPDATE IT WITH A NICER LAYOUT, YOU'LL HAVE TO BEAR WITH ME. SORRY IT'S HIDEOUS.

Taking the Screenie

So you want to learn how to take screenies, eh? Alright then... it's very simple. All you have to do is locate the 'Prt Scr/SysRq' Key somewhere in the top right hand corner of your keyboard. Find the page you want to take a picture of and press the button!

Now you have it... but the next step is editing, and making it look pretty.







Making it look nice

Now, you have to find your Paint Program. Click 'Start', then 'Programs', 'Acessories', and then 'Paint'.









When your program has opened up, and then you have to click either 'Edit', 'Paste', or press Ctrl†C. This pastes the entire image of your screen shot into Paint.



Now what you have to do is take away all the stuff that you don't need everyone to see. So you select the following options on your sidebar.





All you have to do is click and drag, so that the white shows up around your image. Take out anything you don't need people to see. This way, when you save and upload, the image will be smaller, and will be easier to get up on photobucket.

Here's the image that I'll be using as an example. I took a screenshot of it, and then cleared away most of what I don't need to see.



Now that you have your image close to perfect... it'll probably be somewhere in the middle of your paint application. So you select the tool below, and click and drag it around your image as shown. The click, and drag the image as far as you can to the top left corner.





Once you have done this, you need to go al the way to the bottom right corner, find the little colored square, click and drag it so that it frames to other two sides of your image.

Can I use the names?

You can but I would not recommend it. If you're insulting someone... or something they said, please take their names out of it. Some people like to harass people for something they said... and this is against the neopet rules. But on the otherhand, if someone has commented you on something you've done, then you can leave it there. Unless of course they ask you to remove it!







Saving it

Now is the tricky part. You don't want to have an image that's too small, or have one with completely disasterous colors! So here's how you save it. Click 'File', and 'Save', and then use the image below as a guideline.









Placing it.

Now you go and sit in the corner, and wait for it to find it's way to your page. Lol, just kidding... all you have to do now is upload it onto your image host (photobucket.com), if you don't already have an account, then feel free to use the mini tutorial on setting up an account on my Ixi's petpage (click photobucket tutorial in the table of contents).

Now that you have your account, follow the instructions on uploading. Click 'Browse', find you image, click 'Open', and then 'Submit'.

Once it's uploaded, then you can place it into the code below.



Just replace the 'URL.jpeg' with your URL, and then you can go paste it into your petpage!







Do's and Don'ts

This part is crucial if you want good feedback from people. You need to make your page look snazzy, and neat to attract people!

Here are some Do's and Don'ts of Screenies!

The following images should help you figure out what makes your screenies stand out.

Don'ts



DO NOT just take the pencil tool, and write on your screenie... use the 'A' which is the text tool to type in your info.

DO NOT take some random color to scribble out a name, or something. Zoom in, and use the eyedropper tool to select the color of the background, then color over it using the same color.

Do's

Here's the same screenie, but with some better techniques.



DO make sure your screenie looks like this before you go post it on your page. People like myself don't even bother rating screenies that are scribbled on and are a complete disaster. So make it friendly to our eyes, and we will bump that rating right up.







Editing the petpage

Never fear... my codes are here!! *wraps cape around self*

To center all of your images...



Put the first part at the biginning of your page, and then add the last part at the very end.

To change the color of your background...



For this code, you just have to add a color code. A really good site for color codes is right here... w3schools.com/html/html_colornames.asp or you can visit the 'Hex Codes' section of Shakomae's petpage

If you're making captions for your screenies (text underneath), feel free to visit my Ixi's petpage for some text codes.

All information listed above can be found on my Shakomae's petpage.
