have an editor open such as Microsoft Paint, then during flight press your Print Screen key. Then hit your windows key and paste the shot into paint. Save it as a JPEG.
Then open up a free account at www.photobucket.com where you can then upload the pics.
Once done, copy the IMG into any of your posts and we will be able to see your pictures.

Please keep them reasonably small as this seems to keep everyone happy.

Hope this helps

Download 'GrabClipSave' from http://www.boumchalak.net/content/view/19/40/

Very easy to use.

FS Snapper is my personal favorite for taking screenshots. If you load this utility before starting FS you can hit printscreen and have it save a screenshot to a foler, with whatever pre-fix you want, and at whatever quality and size. You can even have it paste your location over the picture!

Imageshack is my personal favorite site to upload to. Your pictures are essentially in their system permanently, and without a limit to your upload amount. Each file needs to be under 1mb, but a 1024x768 screenshot reduced to 65% of its size (in bmp format) will work perfectly. Also, there's no re-sizing like there is with photobucket Wink . Just copy the "direct link" using the "IMG" tags and you're set!

That's okay. Just remember where that 'Printscreen' key is located.
I mark my important keys with pieces of chewing gum - but be warned, it can get a bit messy Very Happy
