If the first listing for the chain of where to find screenshots in the top post is supposed to be Mac OS X, then the name should be changed as well as removing the C:

I'd do it, but I want to make sure that's the case.

This one where it says Windows Vista?

  • C:\Users\*Your User Name*\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Screenshots in Windows Vista

No that's for Windows Vista, heh. And I can confirm it's the same for Windows 7.

Maybe just add the one for Mac, Metro? Or PM it to Pam.

It's pretty much the same path for OS X but there's no C:

Users > *Your User Name* > Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 3 > Screenshots (for Mac OS X)

I'll make the edit.

I can't find where to resize the image to 640 x 480. I thought I did, but that was just zooming in.

Testing from Photobucket ... original source Mac O X.  I resized before uploading to Photobucket, and then copy/paste the Img code.

Is it true that cannibals don't eat clowns because they taste funny?

Possibly not saved in Photobucket?

Did you move the picture to a different folder in Photobucket?  It has to always stay in the same place for it to show up on the forum, or you have to change the image link after you move the picture.

I just put the one pic in there to see if it would work, when I hit the preview, it was in there.  Will try again, I am not real familiar with photobucket, if it doesn't work, will just keep using the dumb little thumbnail, lol.  Will try again and post it to see if I can fix it.

Ok, trying again. Made new album, saved it, named it and see if it works.  Let me know.

Wow, on my end a little big, will resize if this is working.

You can resize it on Photobucket.  The size we want is 480 x 640 (large).
