What were the key functions to save multiple screenshots to your desktop?  I remember I used to be able to take about 5-10 and it would save the files to the desktop to review...
Hi Jeff, sorry for not seeing your question until now... I actually had to look it up, because I've been using Fraps for my screenshots for so long, but the official command in NFS:HS was Alt+P, which leaves the TGA files on your desktop.

However, as soon as I started using multiple mod cars in my HS setup, I noticed this stopped working properly: In-menu shots are usually saved without a problem, but shots from the race itself or the replays often weren't saved at all, no matter how many times I pressed Alt+P. So I've been using Fraps ever since, you just have to remember to start it before you run the game, because you can't alt-tab out of NFS HS. ;)

When I try just the old PRT SCRN like I did on my old PC a few years back the car sometimes dissapears after you pull it over so I first have to record these then on the video hit PRT SCRN to get shots. Here is my latest, Tinkered with Ryuji's old Datsun 240Z and made a classic police car:

Sorry, but IT IS. It's the most horrible thing you can do to an image, seriously.

So you don't care about the aspect ratio, and the quality, you only care for the picture.

i'm not impressed.

I had before but as I said during game play sometimes a car you have pulled over will disappear or the body while..Sometimes there is a time to make use of that like here:

That was a good way to use that glich  ;D

But most of the time it's just annoying so I record the chase in FRAPS then play it in VLC and to get shots I use full screen and then PRTSCRN and trim away the black lines in PhotoImpact 4.2

Use Irfanview. That might work.

Weird. I experienced the problem of disappearing parts / effects with almost all programs BUT Fraps. IrfanView is among the failing programs for me.

Well it is. You are regulary uploading screenshots in hope to see them as SOTD. Then you complain about them not being choosen. We choose SOTD's by quality. There are qualitative screens, and then there is your wrong aspect ratio. Get the picture?

Nice bug shots by the way. Although, same critic point - at least not oversharpened this time. ;)
