    I've been searching now for over an hour for the post on how to do Screenshots and post them on Stratics. Apparently, I-R-DUMB because I can't find it.:sad2: Can someone please throw me a bone here? Thank you for any and all assistance!
    I could have sworn someone made a detailed "how to" on this and it was stickied, but, like I said, I haven't found anything on it using the Stratics Search Engine. Thanks again for your assistance.

    Welcome to the I-R-DUMB club. I am a founding member. I also would like this info. Not that I ever am in anything that anyone could care about.

    I usually use the print screen option, paste the picture into Paint, and save, then use as an attachement to my post (from the additional options below the thread window). But I am sure that there is a better way to do it than that.
     
  3. Red.. This is what I would do.....
    Open an account with Photobucket.
    Once you have your screenshots edited, load them up to Photobucket.
    After they are uploaded, the site gives you an image code underneath each picture
    Copy the image code and paste it into your Stratics post.

    The only thing is, put them in a folder on your computer that you wont delete. If you delete the pics from your computer, they will disappear from photobucket and Stratics as well.

    Disregard -- I found my answer when I re-read the linked FAQ.

    I love photobucket they let me store so many interesting screenshots. Our server is filled with noobs and liars, you really need something working as physical proof to counter the lies came from the low lifes.

    Only thing about photobucket is it doesnt allow you to zoom in big enough to show readable ingame text if your PC resolution is too high. You might want to crop out the game window.

    Also google up UOSU(Ultima Online Screenshot Utility) which helps you take screenshots on fly but it automatically cut out the task bar unless you use print screen bottom.
     
  10. Yeah, I just use SnagIt for the screenshots themselves... I have a hotkey I hot for pics on the go, words wonders in PvP situations. Then I edit them in the SnagIt Editor, uoload them to Photobucket and post to the boards.
