    Don't use the upload crap on Stratics. It's junk.


    Pro Tip - ( Imageshack.us )

    Open the files with something such as paint. Save as .jpg file. Then you can upload to any picture hosting site.

    .jpg usually screws up the color. I use .png for almost everything. It seems to be becoming the industry standard..

    I've moved these posts out of the screen shot thread. Maybe we can start a clear discussion of what screen shot utilities here, where to host screen shots, and how to post them.

    photobucket changes your formats, and generally, to a really crappy .jpg.
