Screen print, open it in an image editor, crop as desired, save, and then upload?

The best way to do it without any hassle is to download and use MWSnap. Highly recommended!

I usually use the kwout bookmarklet (found at the bottom of that page)



it's very easy to use, just drag the bookmarklet to your web browser menu bar, and then when you have the webpage open that you want to create a snapshot of, click the bookmarklet. it will open the kwout app and allow you to crop and such. you then have a lot of options on what to do with the image, but the easiest to get it back into bgg is to right click on the image and copy the address to your clipboard and then link it back in here as an external image, that's what I did above.

Or you can download the very easy to use screenshot program "Faststone capture". Very handy little program, that lets you select part of your screen, a specific window, your entire screen, you can even capture an entire webpage that doesn't entirely fit on your screen without scrolling etc. It also provides a simple image editor.

Just save the captured image and upload it to an online photo storage website (the free www.photobucket.com for example).
And just insert the link photobucket provides you.

Edit: Just found out that it isn't entirely free anymore... It shareware with a 30-day trial period. Pity...
You could try looking at this page: http://sourceforge.net/search/?type_of_search=soft&words=scr... for open source (and thus free) screenshot programs.

Command-Shift-4.

Just drag out whatever region you want to capture and there it is, on your desktop as "Screen shot YYYY-MM-DD at HH.MM.SS".

...and just to add my two-cents... I suspect there's a Firefox Add-on out there somewhere that'll do it too (assuming you use Firefox).
