Hello Andy.

Ok let me give you a tip. Save your FS screenshots in JPEG format because bmp makes them large files and photobucket has a limit of 250kb's. Upload them to photobucket as .jpg files and you're sorted. JPG offers smaller file quantity.

No, you could just press PrtScn on your keyboard, and paste it in Paint, then just save it, but doing it that way, you're only able to do one one at a time. Screenshot programs, like FSBerlin's Screenshot Manager (I use that one) will save it for you, and so you can just take as many screenshots as you like.

MADtoCAE:

For my screenshots i used a program. I start the program up prior to starting FS9.

Once i start flying i just press the Print Screen key and it automatically saves the photo to my desktop without having to pause my flight.

Like stated above, i needed to then change the file type to JPEG. (see reply #2)

I did this by importing the desktop photo to MSPAint and then saving it in a JPEG file in lieu of the standard bmp file.

The result of changing it to a JPEG file is shown in reply # 3

Bah, I can't believe how out of date CLE always is in FS. I mean they just put concourse D in finally for FS2004 even though it was completed in 1998! I guess we gotta wait till FS2010 till the new runway is on there, eh?
