Oh…well…great… does that mean I should log back in and risk running into people on Tatooine again?  *whine*

No, no, you don’t have to do that.  I always use JPG myself and it works fine. Once you have the screenshot you want to use, go to the tumblr of the person you’re submitting it to. Find and click the submit link (it’s the third thing down in the second column on bamfbugboy’s tumblr), choose “photo” from the drop-down menu, choose the photo like you were making a photo post on your own tumblr.  Don’t forget the character’s name underneath, click the box to accept the terms of submission, submit it, and there you go.

Won’t the dimensions be a problem?  Or would that only be a problem if it actually posted that way instead of them just using it to get the pic for editing?  Because the screenshots are bigger than 500x700.

The dimensions should not be a problem. I don’t think it would be if you were posting it yourself, either, as Tumblr shrinks them anyway.

Oh.  Learn something new every day.

I guess I’ll try getting a few PNG shots and see if I can tell the difference.

dareva said: I can help with the submitting if you like.

How does one deal with the limitations of tumblr, and still submit an unedited and high quality screenshot?

Skipping over the issues of Makeb and ending the night with “Ack!  Character I recognize!” *zip*, I did manage to get a lot of screenshots of both my Agents today.  Now to see if any are fitting… and figure out how one submits screenshots to someone else in the first place.  Which will go better when my brain starts working again…

There are probably better responses to coming out of a cut scene to find a character you’re 99% sure is someone’s from tumblr standing next to you than running away and logging out.

*facepalm to infinity*

dareva said: If you haven’t done the Alderaan bonus series yet, the lighting in those quests is very good.

I haven’t.  But the idea of slaughtering Killiks is not too appealing when a Joiner is your best friend.

Not that most people don’t consider large portions (or all) of the game a “didn’t happen” for their characters anyway.

(Though, in Alderaan related news “How can you stand there and ask me to commit war crimes!?”  ”Would you rather I paced back and forth?” never fails to crack me up.  There is probably something wrong with me.)

lesabear said: If I were on your servers I would offer to help but unfortunately I’m on neither :/

It’s kind of you to offer, anyway. :)

So far, the blow tanks up in between running all over well lit planets talking to heroic quest givers is working all right as a plan.  At least for my current problem.

roguescarlett said: If this helps; I managed to complete Makeb’s story arc quickly on my Jedi Shadow. It’s easier to do Makeb with level 55 and up-to-date with the gears. Though, if you have a stealth toon, you can avoid the mobs while going to class missions

I’m actually fairly good at avoiding mobs without stealth.  But it is good to know that being max level and having up-to-date gear helps.  I should probably double check my mods, anyway.  I don’t know when I last updated those…

lesabear said: You can do it!

reanimatrix said: I am however, a shameless keysmasher who pays no attention to tactics, so bear that in mind and have hope!

I’m fairly terrible at games.  (And gravitate toward the absolute squishiest classes.)   But I will keep trying.

I guess…depending on how much time I spend on screenshot hunting…I could always punctuate that with blowing up tanks via heroic moment.  Could work.  Possibly.  (Doesn’t solve the rest of the planet, of course, but hey.)
