    • Constantly repeating links.
  • Chain letters that contain false information are prohibited. You are not allowed to post these anywhere on the site or forum.

Language
  • Profanity is ok to use on Diva Chix, however it won't be tolerated when used against another member, speaking about another member, or towards staff. Stronger profanity (such as the f word and sexual slang) will automatically be bleeped out by our system, and must not be circumvented by typing the forbidden word in another manner.
  • For the sake of appearance, refrain from posting any profanity (even masked) in thread titles.
  • While it is ok to use profanity, we respectfully ask that you don't spam the site with excessive profanity just for the sake of doing so. If it looks extreme and excessive, the staff reserves the right to censor it.
Please note that each section of the forum has its own rules that you must adhere to. Check the section rules regularly,they can be found in the stickies in each section. (A sticky is a pinned thread at the top of each forum).


As the site progresses and new features are implemented, the senior management will update the rules as necessary.

  • How to take a Screenshot (Windows and MAC)

    A SCREENSHOT is a picture capture of the screen you want to take a picture of. Follow this tutorial to learn how to take a screenshot.


    This tutorial will teach you how to take a screenshot on a Windows PC or laptop, and a MAC PC or laptop.
    For Windows users, please refer to posts 1, 2 and 3.
    For MAC users, please refer to post 4.

    Windows
    Follow these steps if you are using a PC or laptop operating Windows.

    Step 1.
    First, make sure you have what you want to screenshot up on your screen so that you are viewing it in the active window.
    For example, I want to take a screenshot of my diva, so I am viewing my profile as follows:





    Step 2.
    Next, you need to find the 'Print Screen' button on your keyboard. It is usually located in the top right hand corner of your keyboard near the Num and Scroll lock keys.
    Different keyboards, will have different print screen buttons. Your print screen button will look like one of these below:

    Once you have found your Print Screen button, and you are viewing what you want to screenshot on screen, press the print screen button.

    If you have a Print Screen button that looks the same as Print Screen button number 4 in the image above, then you will need to find your 'fn' function button on your keyboard.
    It is usually located near your space bar, either to the left or right of it, and looks like the 'fn' key in the above image.
    You need to hold this key down whilst pressing your print screen button to take a screenshot.

    Step 3.
    Once you have pressed your Print Screen button, open up Paint on your PC or laptop.
    To do this click on:
    Start > Accessories > Paint.
    (Your start button and menu may look a little different on your PC or laptop)

    Step 4.
    When you have opened up your Paint program, click on the 'Edit' menu at the top, and click on 'Paste'.
    Or you can hold down your 'ctrl' + 'v' keys to paste.

    imgur.com or postimages.org

    Your screenshot should then be pasted into Paint like below:

    You only need to follow Steps 5 and 6 if you wish to crop your screenshot.

    Step 5.

    I want the screenshot to be of my diva only, so I need to use the selection tool on Paint to crop my diva out of the screenshot. The selection tool looks like this:





    Click on the 'Selection' tool, and using your left click on your mouse, drag a rectangular box around your diva (or whatever you wish to select).
    It should look like this, with the checkered lines around your selection:


    [



    Step 6.
    Once you have the area you selected using the selection tool, click on the 'Crop' key, and it should look like this:





    Then you click on the 'File' menu and onto 'Save as'. Name the screenshot, something you will remember.






    Step 8.
    To upload your screenshot, use one of the following image upload websites.

    imgur.com or postimages.org


    Follow the instructions on the site to upload your image.
    Once uploaded, they will provide you with a 'direct link'. This is the direct link to your image.
    Copy and paste the link by right clicking and clicking on 'Copy' and then 'paste' to wherever you would like to paste your screenshot.

    And you are done!

    **NOTE**

    To get to Paint on WINDOWS 8, follow these 2 simple steps:

    1. Drag mouse to top right hand corner so the charms appear(bar down the side with the logos!) and click the search button!(Red arrow)


    2. Type the word 'paint' into the search and click the paint icon, should always be the first picture!

      FOR WINDOWS 7 USERS:

      If you are running Microsoft Windows 7 operating system, then there is a very easy way to take screenshots!

      1. Go to your start menu AND

      2. Click on 'All Programs':


      3. Click on the Folder 'Accessories':


      4. Click on 'Snipping Tool':


      5. Your screen will look a little "foggy".


      6. Now you can click and drag a box around the image you want to capture and then release your mouse button. You will now see the screenshot you wanted in a separate window waiting for you to save, like so:


      6. Save it somewhere that is easy for you to find and then upload to a website as explained in Step 8 of Post 2.

        MAC
        Follow these steps if you are using a PC or laptop operating MAC.

        Step 1.
        First, make sure you have what you want to screenshot up on your screen so that you are viewing it in the active window.
        For example, I want to take a screenshot of my diva, so I am viewing my profile as follows:



        http://i49.tinypic.com/24612it.png

        Step 2.
        You need to locate your 'command' and 'shift' keys. They are labelled below in this image:



        http://i31.tinypic.com/20fx5dk.png


        Step 3.
        You need to hold down your 'command' key and your 'shift' key at the same time, and then press your number 4 key.

        An icon should pop up that looks like a target site. Use your mouse or laptop touchpad to drag and click what you would like to take a screenshot of.



        Step 4.
        Moving the target site will draw a box around the screen, highlighting in a light gray the portion that will be in the screenshot. Once you highlight your selected part, release the keys. The computer should make a noise similar to that of taking a photograph.


        Step 5.
        To access your screenshot, look on your desktop. The screenshot should be saved as Picture 1 (ensuing shots will be numbered as well).

        Then you are done! :)
