need help with screenshots

i was looking at some screenshots and noticed there really high quailty i was wondering how do i make mine high res? turn all game options up? plus what?

Photoshop > Filter > Sharpen > 0.4 ; 90px ; 1

Dumb thread anyway.

well sorry!. people have to start somewhere. and that doesnt help the graphics… that will just shapren the picture not make them better quailty

It will simulate a higher definition. I know what I’m talking about. Now if you want your picture to be top quality there’s no secret: maximum native resolution and max anti-aliasing when taking your screenshot. That’s very basic.

Now if by “quality” you mean “cool editing that makes my picture look better”, it’s like asking someone to teach you how to paint Mona Lisa.

Have you got some examples to illustrate what you mean?

Wouldn’t it be better to ask directly people whose pictures/editing style you like?

and everytime i try to upload it says undefined.

I’m going to copy and paste a quote of myself from a long time ago, you could probably use some of the tips.

"I know you can do better, everyone who posts pictures can do better; just a matter of time and learning.

A start would be to look at others work who are generalized as “Good” and then look at your work and try to
point out stuff that you don’t have that they have, like:
-Fingerposing
-Camera angle
-Background objects, people, things.
-Faceposing
-Objects in front of picture
-The main thing you’re trying to show (A man killing his mom, Spy turning into mom, ect…)
-Model textures (low res? high res?)
-Editing (You don’t need it just yet)

Now that you have looked into such areas, realization must be brought to justice and noticing the huge
difference your picture will be if you follow the desires of Garry’s mod 10 pictures.

You have so many tools in Garry’s Mod 10 that you’re not using that could help your picture so much.
Then once you’ve accomplished ingame editing you should continue with editing programs such as Gimp or Photoshop."

nvm got it turned of local thing. thanks for those links

i see you followed all tutorials to word

no just used bloom and super dof

Also, screenshot quality to 100 or use dev_screenshot (.tga).

for some reason my game lags so the screenshot isnt reliable to take the shot, so i use thre camera tool. is that alright? or use the dev?
