Wait, wait, wait.. I think I missed something!
How do you get rid of the name, so that it doesn't show up in the picture?

BTW I wish every mapper saw this, I loved the little advices :>

WHOA! Just realized I missed that step! Will edit right away since I'm online now.
All you've gotta do is click Ctrl+N, that way the name won't show.

Doesn't work, when I choose Capture, it shows my second screen instead of my current, so I can't take it :)

Aslong as it's not a distorted screenshot, I don't care if it's big, map editor, etc...
I just don't like when it's zoomed (stretched client) and with crappy quality afterwards (bad computers?) :p

you probably have a GM/admin char. OR you have just adjusted it at graphics--> advanced--> set ambient light (but that i doubt :p)
