The rules
  • Limits: 3 screenshots per post. If you have more than 3 then make more posts, use the spoiler balise or thumbnails.
  • Spamming: No more than 3 consecutive posts of the same game. Link to an album of your collection.
  • Naming: Always include the name of the game with the screenshots. Not everyone is a game encyclopedia.
  • Compression: If it's visible you will be called out. Follow the JPEG guide below.
  • Emulators: Emulator screens are fine. However, you should list the emulator used.
  • Stretching: Do not post stretched screenshots. Do not take 2.35 screens unless you know what you are doing.
  • Spoilers: Please do not post major plot points from games released in the last 2 months.
  • Thinking: Think before you post. Is the screenshot really worth posting? Does anyone care about some ugly texture you found? No.
  • Feelings: Did someone hurt your feelings? PM a mod. Take your drama elsewhere.
The tools
  • Custom Resolutions: If you have an Nvidia or an AMD card, create a couple custom resolutions over 1080p.
  • Steam: You can tell Steam to also save lossless screens when hitting the button and choose and output folder.
  • FastStone: It's free and quite easy. You can resize a whole folder with different options and convert to .png/.jpeg.
  • Irfanview/Photoshop: Use one of these to convert to .png from .bmp, crop out black bars or resize pictures.
  • Zoner PS: Another Photoshop alternative, recommended by Angelus Errare.
  • Alo81's JPEG Guide: Everything you need to know about saving as a JPEG.
  • HDR+WCG Image Viewer: To manipulate HDR shots (.jxr). Easily convert your screenshot into .png without loss.

  • Imgur: The most used in this tread, almost no loss of quality during the upload, simple to use.
  • Flickr: Two terabytes of storage and great for screenshot library management.
  • imgbox: Free unlimited image storage with almost no loss in quality.
The guides
  • Alo81's JPEG Guide: Everything you need to know about saving as a JPEG without getting shanked.
  • MrRoderick's Screenshot Compendium: A great thread filled with advice on advanced techniques for screenshotting specific games.
  • Nvidia Inspector: This guide covers how to force AA externally and the basics of using the program.
  • Radeon Pro: Pretty self explanatory, follows a lot of the basics from Nvidia Inspector.
  • SGSSAA: This guide on Guru3D covers how to implement Sparse Grid Super Sampling.
  • HBAO+ Compatibility guide: HBAO+ Flags to be used with NvidiaInspector to improve or add ambiant occlusion on many games.

Look at the awesome reflections. no screen space. Everything reflects perfectly. dynamic objects too. And there is ton of water in the game. Everything always reflects awesome.. .in 2004

Love these rofif.
I learned about this game listening to some ambient music on YT and love the "Liminal Space" feel of it. How was the demo? Is it actually enjoyable to play, is it a walking simulator (I'm fine with these)? I might try it when it fully releases.

The demo was very enjoyable but you are just walking. But it's creepy
There might be or might be not something lurking... I am not gonna tell :p
