How to Post Images @ Sugah's Place by Soloaris(with slight editing by old Sugah)
If you want to post pictures, you will need a Photobucket
(or other image hosting) account.
Photobucket is free
The only thing you have to do is register/sign up for the free account.Follow this link to Photobucket!
You can then upload all kinds of pictures there (the most common is JPG
The Sims 2 game screenshots are JPGs
To capture an in game image, just freeze your game with the "pause
Then, take the picture using the "Print Screen
" button on your keyboard.
Lower your game (alt-shift-tab).
Paste the image you've snapped using "Print Screen" into your paint program. Resize, if necessary, to this forum's specs found here.
Save the jpg to your puter.FYI:
It's always a good idea to use the BEST quality & largest (600 x 450) in game image settings for picturing sharing if you're going to use the in game camera
(rather than the "pause-print screen method above).
Now, you can upload your pictures to Photobucket!
Look for this button:
Just point and left click with your mouse on the green UPLOAD button
You should then see your own folders appear in a window.
Find the folder in your puter, where you saved your pics and start uploading to Photobucket.
Once you have uploaded the pictures, they will be seen on the screen.
Then, mark the picture you want to post, and you will see 4 different image codes.
Copy the IMG code, as shown below.
Once you copy the image code, have Photobucket and Sugah's open at the same time.
Do your post as usual and paste the IMG code (picture) into the post!
You can preview the post to see if the photo appears correctly.
Now, your post will be nice and have pictures! And people will answer your
post and say, "oh what good pictures you do!" and "what's that you got in your game"???
I am sure you can ask anyone here, at the site, if you need help.
Just don't be afraid ... And * Please make sure your images are NO WIDER than 650-675 pixels.
Thank you! *
