We Want Your Screenshots!


Every day when we announce the winners of the previous Lottery, we use a screenshot that has been submitted by you guys.  The images can be anything you would find in your game, but they must be PG-13, and they should not have any text (this includes your name) on them.  (Also avoid images that are overly photoshopped, meaning no lens flare, borders, etc).

While we love every image that gets published, we are in need of landscapes and pictures that show off the great outdoors.  We accept images from any Sims game, as well.

As a bonus, from now on, if we use your picture on our Facebook page for announcing the lottery, we'll link back to your profile so everyone will know it was yours _and_ you'll get 3 days of free VIP access.

Side Note:  If you need some tips on how to take better screenshots, you can't go wrong reading this 'Scene Creation' tutorial by FredBrenny - http://wiki.thesimsresource.com/index.php?title=Scene_Creation_a_Brief_Summary   While it is aimed more towards making a set look good, the information on lights and arrangements can make a difference.

But Degera, how do I upload a screenshot?  Make sure you are logged in, and click Account at the top of the page.  Then click Edit Screenshots.  

Now you'll see a page with two tabs.  The first tab displays any images you have already uploaded.  The second tab is Submit Screenshot.  Click the Submit Screenshot tab.  

Enter a title.  Change the category if you want to using the dropdown menu, but there is no Sims 4 category (boo!) so you can skip this step if you're submitting for Sims 4.  You don't have to add a description, but it's always nice to have more information.  

Now the important part!  If you do not change the Public option to Yes, then no one will be able to see the screenshot.  So, using the Public dropdown menu, change it from No to Yes.  I can't stress this enough - if it is not public, I can't see it and therefore won't be able to use it.

Now upload the image to the site by browsing to the image on your computer and click Submit Screenshot.

You can do this as much as you want to, in fact, the more the merrier, and the more chances that we'll use one of your pictures!

** After some testing, we've discovered that the screenshot uploader does not like images that are over 1 MB in size, and it seems to eat .png files, so using a .jpg format is your best option.  Thanks to Howdy Simmer for bringing this to our attention.
