    How do I upload screen shots to this forum?

    I am using the native screen shots ability of my GN. When I try to upload to this forum, I'm getting an error message. Wrong format. It saves the screen shots as png which Tapatalk doesn't recognize. I use to use shoot me. With that app, I could set jpg as saved preference. What are the exact steps you use for for uploading screen shots?

    That's odd. I have had no problems uploading native screen shots to the forum via tapatalk.

    I usually just transfer mine to my PC, open with MS Paint, resize it a bit and save it as a jpeg.

    Did you upload directly from the gallery?

    That's more involved than using shoot me.

    I like to use the Photobucket app and Photobucket.com. Upload your pictures and copy/paste the IMG code into text field.

    Photobucket produces a JPG from the PNG you upload. I have never had good results with PNG's....which is why I always used Screenshot Er in the past.

    After you select your screenshot from the gallery, use tapatalk hosted option. That has worked for me. I couldn't do it directly for the same reason.

    Yeah, PNGs don't usually display well on the forums. I open the screenshot with PicSay and then save it as a .jpg...displays perfectly in high quality without having to host it elsewhere.
