[Tutorial] In-game screen capture + adding image to forum post

Hello everyone,

Sometimes, in the context of some community events and competitions, you will be asked to share on the forum a screenshot of your character in-game.
Here's a tutorial on how to do that. smile

Taking a screenshot


You can take screenshots directly from Dofus, using two different shortcuts, by default these are set as "F2" and "Shift+F2" for enUK keyboards. 
Usually, you will be asked to provide screenshots without the interface
You can change the shortcuts in the game options


Once you press the shortcut key(s), your screenshot will be saved as a file on your computer and you will receive a notification in-game, via the information chat.
If you want to change the location of where your screenshots are saved, you can do so in the  Options menu, under "Features" (scroll to the bottom and you will find it under "Miscellaneous").
 



Uploading your screenshot


Once you have saved your screenshot on your computer, it is best to upload it on the Ankama servers. Please note that this only works for subbed accounts.
To do it, you simply need to click on the link displayed in the in-game Information chat and select the "Share" option.

A new notification in the Information chat will advise you that the screenshot is being uploaded. Once that is done, the image is then uploaded onto Ankama's servers and the "Share" pop-up window will appear:



Adding the image to a forum post


Copy the link from the "Share" window and paste it into your browser's address bar. This will allow you to access your image, now hosted by Ankama.

Right click on the image itself and select "Copy image address"

Go to your forum message and, in the text editor, click on the "Image Properties" icon to add your image.

By clicking on "Image Properties", a little pop-up window will appear. Enter the image address you copied ( not the "Share" address from the in-game pop!)

Click OK. Your image is now added to your forum message!

If you are subscribed, please make a screenshot of the error message (obviously not via the upload tool wink ) and send it to me, then I'll take care of it.

"[08:33] Unable to publish the screencap - a problem occurred while sharing."
Hello, I'm trying to upload a screenshot for the miss and mister world of twelve contest but I'm getting this unhelpful error when I click on the share option. What do I do?

Yes, my account is subscribed, I've sent you an ankamabox message with the error message, but I don't think that will help you. Is it alright if I use another upload server for the contest? I already have the perfect screenshot for my submission...
