I've been wondering, since the Beta in fact, how to take screenshots? Is it a matter of Print Screen and the pasting it to a picture program, or is there a folder where it'll automatically get saved?

Thanks for Reading.

I,m very old-skoolŽed guy and I like to use the good old"print screen" key And I think thats what you have to do but I may be wrong.

I tried that but mine ended up as a giant black screen. So i think that is why they have the holo cam once the came comes out. Or you can go get a program like fraps.

Yes. "print Screen" then paste in a program like paint. then save it to a .jpg file. Then upload it to your favorite hosting site and hotlink.
For free stuff...
It's fun leveling & goofing around in SWTOR like a child, but, as soon as you reach 55, you discover you have to be like a responsible adult "What the hell happened?"

Thanks folks.

I don't know what you're doing but I successfully hit the printscreen button and it saved a file in My Documents\Star Wars - The Old Republic\Screenshots\Screenshot_2011-12-15_13_32_41_044025.jpg.

I also used the gimp to grab PNG shots of my toons but that's because I wanted lossless versions of them.

Some shots just black, so no ingame shots

Screenshots were black in beta because of the NDA. Follow the above poster and it should work now.
