A video on how to edit your minecraft screenshots using gimp, and hopefully make them look a bit nicer. I'm not an expert when it comes to gimp, but hopefully you will find this useful if you wanted to know how to do basic editing.

Hopefully you should be able to make some nice featured images to show off your minecraft creations here on planetminecraft and elsewhere.

Happy minecrafting!

Nice Video it helped a bunch, one suggestion for you, do fn + f2 to take a screenshot in game, you wont have to crop out the header at the top, it will take a screenshot of just the game! thanks again! :D

Being on a mac is like being in a wheelchair with rocket boosters.
So much extra, but still, for gaming so limited...
or its like being a friend of a blind cocky guy. he says it has everything. but all he does is check his mail.

well most gamers use pc, little kids use pc, when gamers (not much) and little kids get tricked into a fake download you have more virus's.

while apple users don't download so much and use downloads from the app store they get less virus's it's all how you work with your pc or mac.

like me i've always used pc and had only 3 virus's in like 6 years.

while my little brother had many more because he wasn't carefull.

I have a problem:
The editing works perfectly thanks to your awesome tutorial, but after I edit a .png with gimp, it switches it into a .xcf file, which I can't upload to pmc.
I tried renaming it from .xcf to .png/.jpg but it corrupted the file.
Any ideas how to fix this?

er... I need a little help first of all. I can't seem to be able to upload more than one picture when posting projects. As in after saving the pic, it loads infinitely, thus not allowing me to upload more pics without clicking on my user name and updating the project. Is there any way to fix this or might it be a internet problem?

That's just a general problem with pmc that a lot of people have for some reason.

I find a way round it is to make sure the file size you're uploading isn't too big (change .png files to .jpg)

And upload when the site isn't very busy.
