Taking Screenshots

I've seen many program pages on SmileBASIC Source that use images of the screen taken with a camera. You can get much better images if you use Miiverse to take screenshots! (They're still JPEGs, sadly)
  1. Get the image you want displayed on the screen.
  2. Press the home menu button and open Miiverse.
  3. Select the screen you want, and choose "Save to Screenshot Album".
  4. Log in to Miiverse on your computer, and go to the bottom of your user page.
  5. Click the screenshot you want, then right-click and choose "Copy Image Location".
  6. Set the image on your program page to that URL.
(Note: I'm pretty sure this doesn't work if you're banned from miiverse, so you'll have to ask someone else to do it for you.)

Every time you edit and save a JPEG, it's damaged more because of it. Guzzler829 Guzzler829 First Week Joined in the very first week of SmileBASIC Source Website Drawing I like to draw!

Express Yourself I'm pretty sure renaming it does not convert the file... Rather, a good image editor determines the true image format from the file itself, and only takes the extention as a suggestion. In othet words, use MS paint to properly convert your JPEGs to PNGs. It's the easiest legitimate way. flarn2006 flarn2006 Renaming works for .jpeg to .jpg, since those are just two different extensions for the same format. But it can't convert either to PNG. If you "convert" it to PNG by renaming and it looks right when it opens up, it's because whatever program you're viewing it with is smart enough to detect the correct format to read it as even though the extension says something different. Oh, and even if you convert a JPEG to a PNG the proper way, it won't remove the compression artifacts. If there was a way for a computer to detect what it originally looked like, don't you think it would just show it that way even if you loaded it as a JPEG?
