How to take Screen Shots

 Screen Shot Programs

If you are using Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1 you can use the built in Snipping tool to create screenshots.  You can then upload the pictures to various sites.  http://imgur.com and http://tinypic.com are recommended as they don't require sign ups.

There are a few good screenshot programs you can install on your computer and use them for any program.

Lightshot

The most commonly used program on Sbcodez is Lightshot.  You can either upload screenshots directly or edit them before you upload. 

Download lightshot from here: http://app.prntscr.com/en/

To use simply press the prt sc button on your keyboard and you can then choose an area on your screen to upload. Just click the button with the cloud that has an up arrow on it to upload your screenshot without making any changes.

You can also add Lightshot to just your browser instead with support for firefox and google chrome

Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/lightshot/

Google Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/lightshot-screenshot-tool/mbniclmhobmnbdlbpiphghaielnnpgdp

Gyazo

Download Gyazo here: https://gyazo.com/

Simply click its icon in your task bar, select an area, and it will provide a link you can post in chat

Puush

Download Puush from here: http://puush.me/

Puush requires users to make accounts.  You will have access to 200 MB of online storage as a free user and you will be able to access screen shots up to a full month since their last view.
To upload selective area screenshots you can use the default button presses CTRL SHIFT 4, or you can set your own custom keys to start the screenshot in the key bindings section of the program
