Post created by WelshMackem Right, the PI guys have asked me to do a quick Dummies Guide to posting screenshots pf tourney wins etc... so here we go.

1. When you've got the victory screen in front of you, press SHIFT+"PrintScreen" (directly above the INSERT button on most standard keyboards. This saves an image of teh screen onto your clipboard.

2. Open the graphics progra of your preference, I use a Serif application, but PaintShop Pro or something similar is just the same, then paste your image (CTRL+V) onto your blank canvas. You can then edit it, crop it etc... and save as a jpeg.

3. Get your browser up on t'internet and find an image hosting site (I use this one ImageShack, but again, I'm sure there are many others). You will be presented with the option to browse your hard drive to find the image to upload, once you do this you also have the option to resize it (depending on where it's going, ImageShack has a specific option for use on messageboards). Once that's done you will be given a list of links, copy the "Direct Link to Image" onto your clipboard (highlight it then CTRL+C).

4. Open the PI Forum and start your post, then where you want the image click on the little picture of a picture above the text box (5th icon along "Insert Image") and paste (CTRL+V) the link from Imageshack into the dialogue box.

5. Finish your post and hit the save button, hey presto, your glorious victory is emblazened across the computer screens of the world.

Hope that helps and isn't too patronising to anyone.Post created by WelshMackem
