Welcome to our 2019 Screenshot thread, we welcome anyone here to post screenshots, (if your a console player your welcome, if your a artsy person your welcome, if your a toggle hud person and take a wild screen your welcome, if you just love images of games your welcome)

there is a few rules below i wish everyone would read over and adhere by and also some tools and hosts to help your screens be even better.


Naming: When Posting your screenshot always include the name of game
Limits:
up to 6 screens per post
Stretching: please refrain from posting stretched screens (unless its ultra wide and cannot be avoided)
Spoilers: if your image contains spoilers (especially of a game newly released, please hide it behind spoiler tags or like my post to see content tags.
Thinking: thread is going to be more open this year, especially with console games having photo modes and various other tools now as well.


Cube Upload: Simple interface, Unlimited Bandwidth, Raw Uncompressed images, Free to use, 5MB max image file size
Lens dump: Unlimited Bandwidth, Raw Uncompressed Image, Keeps Exif Data, More features for registered users and Free to use, 100MB max image file size
Flickr: Up to 1000 images on a free account (as of January 8th, 2019.).
Pic Par: Brought to you by none other than X3sphere, a simple and efficient image host.
Abload: Easy to use, doesn't compress jpegs further, auto-converts bmps to png nicely.


Custom Resolutions: If you have an Nvidia or an AMD card, create a couple custom resolutions over 1080p.
Nvidia Ansel: great in game tool to take screens in various ways with up to insane res. (only certain games support this)
msi afterburner:I have come to love this tool for screenshots when i use reshade and it blocks steam overlay from working.
Steam: You can tell Steam to also save lossless screens when hittingwhen going into the client settings, pressing on in game settings, and then ticking uncompressed file, and choosing folder of your choice to save too.
FastStone: It's free and quite easy. You can resize a whole folder with different options and convert to .png/.jpeg.
Irfanview/Photoshop: Use one of these to convert to .png from .bmp, crop out black bars or resize pictures.
Reshade: Reshade is an incredible tool that can add many effects to your game for some incredible results

Nice we got a screen thread. I think I'm going to try and participate in this one, due to my lack of patience and tech skills I never really bothered with these threads outside of taking a standard steam screen before. So my resolution is to give it a shot this year. We'll see how long it lasts :p

Same here, it looks fun! Of course, don't expect anything elaborate or artistic, lol

bless for this thread, and bless for the more open approach. The one on Era is revealing a nasty elitist approach by some members that I really don't like. I'll try to post more shots in 2019 too!
yup thats what drove me away from there and my intention here is to make things more open and accepting


Witcher 3





Darksiders 3

Thanks for featuring my screenshot in the thread cover! I wasn't very active in previous year thread, having a hard time to follow all forums and discord servers I signed up lately, but I'll try to be more active here. And again, I'm taking a lot of screenshots and it's such a hassle to manually link them here, I wish Steam would allow to instantly get direct links on images, in Steam client you need to click on every image at least twice to get a direct link.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider


Assassin's Creed Odyssey


Mass Effect

Just looking through my "B-roll" shots of The Witcher 3 (Blood and Wine)... still finding some pretty decent stuff. What I'd give for another game in this universe.
i'm sure we'll get one ... eventually

also - amazing shots! great job as always! :)

oh, you've got an RTX ... so jelly!

also - nice shots! :) how's the framerate?
I have a 2080, so with that high image quality (4K and high quality) it's like 15fps lol. At 1440p it is 25-40fps.

That scene has raytraced shadows and reflections.

RE2 seems to be pretty washed out even if you lower the brightness I think, at least during bright sections, but I just wanted to play it (haven't checked how to get rid of the 30mins limit) so I didn't try lower brightness settings or reshade to see how it goes
