Adding Screenshots to the Forum

You may find yourself wanting to upload a screenshot to the Wargaming Forums. It should be noted that you cannot upload pictures or screenshots directly from your PC. You will need to use an image hosting site and link it directly.

  • First, let's take a Screenshot in game (or elsewhere!):

  • If you are in-game, after pressing the Print Screen button, the screenshot will be saved to your pictures folder.

  • Screenshots will show up in: C:\Games\World_of_Tanks\screenshots

  • The screenshots will be saved as a jpg format and will be named shot_001.jpgshot_002.jpg etc.

  • You can open up Microsoft Paint and press "Ctrl+V" to paste the image in since Print Screen also copies the image to the OS clipboard.

  • Now you need to upload the Picture to an image hosting site such as imgur and select "Upload Images."

  • From here, you can upload pictures from your computer, crop them, and then grab the link to the applicable picture.

  • In the Forums, select the Image Icon:

  • Now add in the image you desire by copying the direct image link from imgur then paste it in the URL space.
  • You can edit the image size here via the H(Horizontal) Space and the V(Vertical) Space.

 
Hopefully, this helps in your quest to share content on the Wargaming Forums!
