Could this page be expanded to also include how to take screenshots to upload? --DorianGray

I'm thinking that should probably go on Special:Upload instead. — Lapper (talk) 20:47, 26 September 2006 (UTC)
Speaking of that how do you take screenshots from cartoons. — Austio talk 03:10, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
Depends on your Operating System:
  • On Windows, I the "Print Screen" button will copy an image of your screen to the clipboard, which you can paste into image editing software to crop. (There is some way to take a shot of just the current window and not the whole screen, CTRL+Print Screen maybe? I cannot test this, my Windows computer is in the office).
  • On a Mac, use <apple> + <shift> + 3, to save an image of the screen to your desktop. Use 4 to select an area of the screen to capture. Add <ctrl> to either of those to copy to the clipboard instead of saving a file. These are the default keybindings and can be changed in the keyboard preferences.BryanCTC 03:26, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
Sorry what I meant to say was how do you take screen shots while the movie is playing. — Austio talk 05:16, 18 November 2006 (UTC)
If you're asking how to freeze the video (an entirely different question) then you need to install a seekbar. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 05:36, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

I also find viewing the SWF, right-clicking, and hitting "Pause" works well too. --DorianGray
Thanx Loafing for helping me figure this out (and I already knew about the other two things said).- Austio talk 06:25, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

Old Image

i can't get the "sbemail 7" image on my userpage! where can i get it? Im a bell 02:12, 2 March 2007 (UTC)

Did you try Image:sbemail7.PNG? — Lapper (talk) 02:20, 2 March 2007 (UTC)
  • huh... the first thyme i tried that, it was a red link Im a bell 03:00, 6 March 2007 (UTC)


uh, i want to upload a image on the fanstuff wiki, but it is in .bmp form what do i do? Im a bell 18:57, 1 June 2007 (UTC)

You should really ask questions regarding the fanstuff wiki over there. This is the knowledge base. But anyway, you need to use a program like MS Paint or The Gimp to open the image and then save it as a .png image. Loafing 20:32, 1 June 2007 (UTC)
Loafing, there isn't a Help thing on thne FanStuff Wiki, it leads to this help thing. Oh, and i did use MSPaint, i think... Im a bell 23:28, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
Oh, it does. That's odd. Anyway, if you use MSPaint, then you should have no problem. When you save the image, there's a drop-down list at the bottom (called "Save as type") where you can choose between *.bmp and *.png. Loafing 23:50, 2 June 2007 (UTC)
It makes sense that all the wiki-related help stuff be redirected over here. That way work is not duplicated, since the fanstuff has to deal with similar editing problems as we do. In fact, the fanstuff's prominent "help" button on their sidebar links directly to our Help:Contents page. --Stux 15:18, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Web Images?

Can you upload an image from the internet, rather than from your own computer? I'm trying to get a SBCG4AP image from, but I don't know how...

Right click and save the image to your computer, then upload it. — Defender1031*Talk 18:17, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
