Default Uploading Pictures And Taking Screenshots

HOW TO : UPLOAD AND TAKE PICTURES
This guide will teach you the basics of taking screenshots and uploading pictures for a PC and a Mac, Most people know this stuff but recently i saw someone post a thread and failed at uploading a picture, so i decided to help.
This is however in the wrong section for a guide, but it is made to help those posting in "Look What I Got" so thats where i posted it

Taking A Screenshot:

FOR A PC:
Have whatever you want to screenshot open on your screen (duh) and press the Print Screen button. (located here)

(click on image for larger view)

Next Your gonna want to open Microsoft Paint, When you have Paint open, go to the top left hand corner, click on edit and then click paste (ctrl + v )

After you paste your Image, crop it and save it... YOUR READY TO UPLOAD

FOR A MAC:
On Mac OS X, pressing Command-Shift-3 takes a screenshot of the entire screen, and Command-Shift-4 takes a screenshot of a chosen area of the screen or if you press Space afterwards you can choose a window or graphic element on the screen to individually screenshot. These images are saved to the desktop, but if you hold down the control key with the rest of the keyboard shortcut, the pictures are copied to the clipboard instead. These shortcuts also work in Mac OS Classic, and can be customised (ie to any of the F keys) using the Keyboard and Mouse preference pane in the System Preferences.

UPLOADING:

Uploading is very simple, there are many websites of which you can upload on, i myself prefer Tinypic but i will add more websites at the end of this guide

Go to www.tinypic.com . click the browse button, choose the desired picture from your computer and click upload


Tinypic has one of those code things, just fill it in and continue


Copy the link as shown, and paste it on your thread, YOUR DONE


UPLOADING SITES:
www.tinypic.com
www.photobucket.com
www.imageshack.us

If you don't want to print screen the WHOLE screen and just want a section, use command+shift+4 and select the area you want.
