Just press 'v' and then a .bmp file will be added to your My Documents/Pictures/FSX Objects folder.To post the screenshot you will have to compress it into a jpeg using Photoshop or similar.Glenn

Here's a second, simpler way you could try:Press your Print Screen button. This places a copy of the screen in your clipboard. You can also press Alt-Print Screen and make a copy of only the FSX window.Open Microsoft Paint. Ctrl-V will paste the screen image into paint. Edit it your liking ... or just save as a .jpg file type.This method I have found is a bit faster, because you don't have to hunt for the .bmp file that FSX created. And, you don't end up with 2 files (the FSX-created .bmp, and your compressed .jpg.)Upload! I have found that posts on AVSIM annotated with an image get far more viewership and feedback than posts which do not.

And if the picture is to big (over 150Kb) resize it in paint to make it smaller.Ulf B

Or, you can run a little program called Snapshooter.You set the picture format, jpeg, bmp, png, tiff, or whatever else you want from the list. You select where the photos are saved, you also select the size of picture you want, watermark
