Windows 7: A Preferred Method of Uploading/Posting Screen Shots

my firefox window runs at about 1024x768 as is shown in that screenie... *shrug* sorry you don't like how I do things but its way better still then how some people do them IMO posting a huge image directly, breaking scroll...

~edit~
realized that I may be coming off as abrasive or rude... that was not my intent at all - sorry if it was taken as such

Not taken as rude. I agree that it is better than posting a full size pic in the forum. I'd much rather have a couple extra clicks.

Take care & Have Fun!

You're not rude but that's exactly why the site has it's own uploading/resize feature. It doesn't make huge screenshots. But people don't bother to use it. I mean have you even tried it?

Hi Jaqie,

I much prefer it when people upload using the paperclip, if I want to see your pic it diverts to image shack and take 3 times as long to show the thumb nail and then you click on it again and it takes just as long to open again in a new window and then I have to close 2 windows again to get back to where I started, IMO a big PITA and I generally won't even bother waiting for them to load now and just close them if I get diverted to image shack.

Yes. I find it limiting... in several ways.
The biggest way is I can only use it here, whereas I post an image on my imageshack and I can use it anywhere.

Surely the majority if not all pictures that you want to show on this forum would not be relevant anywhere else.

O.O

So far with the exception of 3 single thread specific images, Ive just reposted images I already had uploaded to imageshack, and that was in a thread I asked for help in, which is extremely rare so I doubt the 3 will be added to anytime soon.

just wondering, why do some people upload PNG files? isn't JPEC more size efficiant?

Because it's better quality, and you can have transparent backgrounds with png's.

Why on earth the resize feature on external images is not built into this forum script is beyond me...
This is merely a preferred method, one which I agree with, but you're not bound to it. Personal preference overpowers here.

Screen Shots and Print Screen Programs
In many of the replys I notice "Screen Shots" and wondered how you do this in Windows 7? Also can they be saved in a folder for future reference? And is there a Print Screen utility in Windows 7 or a preferred Print Screen Program you recommend. Thanks for your consideration!
