What screenshotting programs does everyone use? :)

Postby Thaitanic » January 31st, 2017, 8:09 pm

So I've moved and changed my computer so many times since publishing my last chapter of a sims challenge that I don't have a decent screenshotting program anymore, and was wondering if you guys had a recommendation for me! I've tried Gadwin but it feels clunkier now? That could just be me.

Anyway, if you guys could give me some of your favourites that would be fantastic. :)

I know this is a really old thread, but I just launch the game in windows mode and use the print screen key as I play. Then I use BeFunky, an online photo editor, to crop and resize the pictures. :)

Yeah I also just play in windowed mode and use Lightshot to capture screens. Then upload to IMGUR so that it does the work of resizing for me xD.

I also use print screen- then I have a power point program to paste it to for slideshows, and do a little brightness & contrast adjustment. I do my own cropping and re-sizing there.
I use Imgur for uploading photos by themselves.

Old thread, but it deserves to be resurrected. :)

I only use the C button in Sims 3 for game screenshots, and I play in full screen. I edit the pics in Photoshop Elements 13 or the older 2.0 that I have a nice B/W plug-in for. I often use both for the same pic depending on what I want to do. I hate that you need a subscription for the later Photoshop Elements versions, so I haven't "upgraded".

Ah yes, forgot to mention that I also use imgur to upload my pictures. Didn't know it could do the resizing for you, though. Will definitely look into that! ^^
