===Why not Print Screen?===


When using hardware acceleration, Print Screen will be unable to capture the overlayed image. This is due to the image being stored in a different area of memory to the main display, and will manifest itself as an area of color (typically nearly black) where the image appears.

If you've been asked to upload a screenshot by a mod, use a [[Recommended Links#Image Hosting|free image hosting site]] - not only is this easier than using your own hosting/transfer method, but also means that the pic will probably stick around for long enough to be there if it needs to be refered back to again. If it's a screenshot to illustrate an anime entry, see the [[Content:Anime#Image|guidelines]] for anime images.
