    How do I take snapshots?

    I tried this when I got like 3 or 4 uniques to drop from Meph (a first for me), and when I pasted into MS Paint, everything was really dark and blurred. Am I doing this right? :scratch:

    press printscreen (or whatever key-binding you have configured), and then use Windows Explorer (or the Mac equivalent) to browse to your D2 folder. You'll find a high-quality image is already stored in a .jpg file for you. No copy/paste necessary.

    Thanks again SirP. Just to make sure, that's Alt (for the items to show) + Printscreen right?

    On the Mac there isn't a printscreen key. You use CMD-Shift-3 for full screen, CMD-Shift-4 for crosshairs to select a part of the screen; the shot ends up as an image file on your desktop.

    Also keep in mind that if you use RWM/RRM then the screenies will be in that folder instead ... that's what happened to me. I was wondering where the heck my screenies were because they weren't in the d2 folder.

    Also I use a WIN built in Paintbrush (? - "Malování" in CZ) just to open the image and save it. It makes the image compressed, going to ~100-150 kB instead of 450-550kB. Good before you will host it at imageshack or photobucket...

    You guys rock! Hrus: I pasted your post into a text file just in case the Diablo gods decide to favour me, and thunder down some item(s) that are kick ***.

    Durf: with one hand on the ground, I'm sure you can pull off a double-wither-kick -- just not Druidkid, he was only trying to help. :grin:
