I've been playin' around with Screenhunter but my FS9 crashes when I use it plus I can't crop the shots cause I don't have photoshop. Any ideas for photo editing program that's free?! 😕 😀

Cheeks I wanna ask you, that screenshot program you use... does it cause FS to pause where you have to press alt to resume flight? Screenhunter is doing that and it annoys me. I may try the one you use.

Ok all you do is press prt scrn or what ever you have assigned the button to and go and paste it into irfanview, save it and go back to fs and play. You dont have to pause it, just leave the program (if thats what you mean anyway) 😉

99% of the time I use it simply for cropping (select an area then ctrl y) and resizing (ctrl r) and putting in text that is part of my style (select an area then ctrl t).

Its also my preferred photo viewer most of the time. You can have many windows open in it at the same time also. When viewing photos you have several easier viewing options... i.e. fit image to desktop, or window, etc... and just hit the right arrow key to go to next image. And hit enter if you want to go full screen.

Its pretty flexible and pretty intuitive.

For photo editing... generally for me thats putting a second airplane in the same picture, I use Paint, but also have found a fantastic free download called GIMP which is powerful as heck but a bit complicated to learn you way around in.

But irfanview has a tool for editing that is really handy. Suppose you are trying to isolate an aircraft for pasting in another shot... and its up in the air... blue all around. Click Image drop down menu, then reduce color depth to 256 or even down to 4 or 8... but the lower numbers usually make the aircraft a bit less realistic.... then Image again and edit pallette. Double click on all the blue's left and change them to white. Then select entire photo (ctrl c without having to draw a rectangle around it in irfanview) and paste it into Paint.

Sometimes it doesn't work that well if the aircraft also has some of the sky colors because they will now go transparent (full white).

The GIMP tool I use the most often is the one that lets you rotate an image by even fractions of degrees.

But irfanview is the main tool and every screenshot I take goes there first. I highly recommend it. Like anything else, it may seem difficult until you get used to it... and its really quite easy to get used to. It has a lot more tools that I've never even looked at.

And I just relized... I downloaded a couple of plug-ins from their site to get what I use.

Tight shot Cheeks. I haven't been flying much for the last couple of weeks. I need to get me a screenhunter or something like that to make a screenie. I don't know, I gotta work on that, my computer crashes when I take shots, something's wrong with the damn thing so I gave up on the shots. 🙄
