How to take a screenshot?

How do you take a screenshot of your char.?
And does the screenshot come as a jpg file automatically?
I saw that many of you post the screenshots as links, is it possible to attach the jpg file to the thread (I don't know how to make those links)?
Thanks

On a PC. Press print screen button. The file will be in your D2 directory or if you run rwm in that directory. You can upload your file to Imageshack.
Edit: Imageshack If you have your own webserver, then I recommend Gallery I use it on my own website.

Also, yes, the file does come out as a .jpg file but d2 uses next to no compression. If you simply open the file in MS Paint and then save it from there, you'll get nearly identical quality at 1/3 to 1/5 the file size. Of course, if you are famiiar with a decent graphics package you can do much better than that still.

I never know it can reduce from 500kb to 120kb... thank for the information!

You can set the screenshot button to whatever you want in Options (hit the escape key to get to the options, then you can reset your controls, video, sounds, whatever). I usually set it to the * button on the numbers keypad area.

With a Mac, it is saved as a .pict file in the Diablo II Files folder. You can use Preview (or Quicktime Player in OS 9) to view it, or something like Graphic Converter or the free Imagewell to convert it to a .jpg for putting on the web.
