How do you guys take screen shots and resize them without losing quality?
What do you do in photoshop to them?
I use 1680x1050 for my games, then resize them in PS CS3 to something like 1100x*whatever* and sharpen them up a touch (you loose sharpness when you resize).
Image>Image Size>Desired resolution.
Anyway, just installed Fakefactory 9.5 and just launched the game, and the graphics look the same at the station? no Hires textures at all... am I missing anything?
i use gimp
it's free and great, it's my main software for all things images, very easy to use.
i also use PaintShopPro 7.0 (hate the later ones) but only for more complicated things.
anyway when you resize pick BICUBIC resizing, avoid Bilinear Resize (too soft).
Crysis high settings, AAX2,
I use Xfire to take screenshots, Xfire resized picture and saves original full quality + full resolution png image.
After gaming just choose which pictures you want to upload and they are uploaded automatically. Easy. Take a look: http://www.xfire.com/screenshots/tatterer/
need to ask
The nvidia drivers have physix capabilities for example Mirror's Edge where you can really see the smoke the, rippling materials, steam, curtains etc even with my 8800GTS 320mb.
But what about ATI users, do you see these things, there is no "physix" capable CAT drivers.
( I have an ATI rig, not in use)
Feel like I got some interesting angles!
This was run with the Xtended mod. Alas, I don't have it installed anymore. Will be picking up X3: Terran Conflict soon! I think this must be the most beautiful space game.
X3 is indeed a gorgeous game.
Yes it is... too bad I can't figure out how to play it.
Also, Eve online is really great looking... I asked if someone could post some of that a while back but nobody came through. CMON
And to whoever was playing BG2 (eclap and someone else I think) - there is a hack for it where you can run custom resolutions. I was running it on 1680x1050 on my old pc - doesn't stretch the image or anything, just gave you a really big view (meaning you can see more on the screen without having to pan around).
