Official FrontierVille Screenshot Contest

Are you enjoying the new Water items? Do you have an eye for detail? Want to win 500 Horseshoes?

Taken from the Official Forum:

Howdy Pardners!

The FrontierVille team wants to see how creative you have been while decorating with the Water Features recently released. Post a screenshot of your homestead focusing on the water features and you can win 500 Horseshoes.

The winning entry will also be featured on FrontierVilles fan page!

You can read all about the contest, including the rules, here.

The deadline for the contest is August 3rd, and no photo-shopping is allowed.

Sounds fun! Unfortunately I’m not the best decorator and most of my frontier is crowded by crops. I’ll have to put my thinking cap on. Good luck everyone!

If you’re confused how to take a screenshot, here’s a quick step by step tutorial:

  1. Open up FrontierVille – You should know how to do this
  2. Open up Microsoft Paint – (Start > Program > Accessories > Paint or just type “Paint” in the Run search box)
  3. Decorate your Homestead to your Heart’s Content.
  4. Once you have your Homestead set up just right, you’re going to want to click the “Print Screen” key on your keyboard. Sometimes this looks like “prt sc” and is usually on the upper right hand side of your keyboard. On my keyboard, “prt sc” shares a key with the “insert” key and I have to push the “fn” key and “prt sc” at the same time.
  5. Switch Windows back to Paint. Either click “crtl” + “v” or the “Paste” button.
  6. After clicking Paste, your screenshot will be in the Paint window. It will be of your entire computer screen, including the top of the Facebook window. You can crop this down to size using the select tool.
  7. After you’ve cropped your image down to size it’s time to save it! Make sure you save it as a .jpeg file instead of a .bmp file. Bitmaps take up lots of space.

And you’re all set!

Happy Screen-shooting!
