how do you take a screenshot

anonymous asked:

Question: I take screencaps of YouTube videos but everytime I pause the video to take a screenshot the stupid playback bar doesn't go down so I can't take a screen cap of the WHOLE video. How do you get a full screen cap?

Often, I’ll just screencap the image above the playback bar. Just cropping it out, basically. In most shots, it won’t remove anything too important from the image.

When I do need the entire thing, I drop the speed to its lowest setting and then screencap while the video is playing. It can take a couple of tries, particularly if you’re aiming for one specific frame, but it gets easier with practice.

I have no idea if there’s an easier way to do it, but that’s my workaround. :)

alright kids today we’re gonna do an experiment. i’m going to show you how easy it is to fake screenshots.

this is my initial test message.

i open ms paint and plop my test message and a message from another person in there.

all i have to do is select their icon and name and paste it over my icon and my name.

and presto! we have our perfectly faked screenie.

so before you take screenshots to heart, please take a minute to think. “is there a possibility this may be faked? do multiple people have evidence and screenshots against the same person? is the person giving these screenshots reliable? does the person in said screenshot ACTUALLY act or type that way?” 

also, you can figure out if a screenshot is faked by deep frying it, surprisingly enough. if it’s a real screenshot, the artifacts will be around the text, and if it’s faked, the aritfacts will be a box, like the box-selection you do when you edit a screenshot

example:

the above name tag is edited. the below is not. you can tell because of the boxy artifacting.

i hope this helped! please be sure to check all resources and see if multiple people have different screenshots to make sure they’re legit.

risky asks

1. “@” people you want to be friends with

2. screenshot the tabs you have open

3. the last text you sent to someone?

4. do you have a nsfw blog?

5. i dare you to _____

7. tell an embarrassing memory or story

8. how often do you take showers?

9.  what was your first blog URL?

Seriously guys Robin deserves major props and much more appreciation and recognition for just how talented he is. Not only as an animator but ESPECIALLY as an editor!

You can tell just by seeing some of his edits in Seán’s videos that he works insanely hard on them. I mean look at some of these!

And these are just a few examples I thought of at the top of my head and my screenshots don’t even do them justice. I imagine some of these edits can take so much time to do and I think all that time and hard work deserves to be appreciated more. 

So from me, the JSE community and from other communities as well. I want to say in this post that we all appreciate you Robin. We know that you work really hard and you are seriously a super talented animator, editor and person. :)

So after these three screenshots I noticed something..

We all know how this kid’s tongue is always out but the thing is…he only did it few times during the dance practice while Jiminie here was doing it literally every five seconds…

…..

The only explanation I could come up with is that Jimin perhaps suffer from a disease called “I can’t keep my tongue inside of my mouth bc rude is my middle name”..

How do you draw hair? It's so amazing!

This is super old and I’m sorry for taking so long to reply omg; I just haven’t had the motivation to sit down and take screenshots of my progress haha.

Anyway, with that out of the way: I have approximately 0 idea what I’m doing while painting hair (or anything, really), so I can’t quite explain how I do it. The most I can give you is sceenshots of my progress and maybe make a few notes here and there! I’m using Gimp, but these tips should apply to most drawing programs.

for this i’ll be using Marinette of course because her hair is a gift from the gods and painting it brings me joy

here’s the sketch:

now, i usually draw some sort of lineart, too, but a clean sketch works just fine as well (plus i’m lazy and I wanna paint lol). when using a sketch as a base, i change the color to a light brown by going to Color -> Colorize, before setting the layer to Multiply and lowering the Opacity to 70-90%.

here’s some basic coloring but we’re just gonna focus on the hair here, so take the base color and smear it over everything

don’t worry about it looking perfect! after you’ve dumped the color on your canvas try to give the hair some very basic shading just to guide you:

from this point on, i usually have no idea what i’m doing. basically, i merge the lineart/sketch layer with the color layer, grab a sharp brush, and go crazy.

Oh, and i also use the color picker tool. A lot.

here’s what i ended up with this time:

oftentimes i tend to play with Brightness/Contrast and Color Balance, while adding some Color Dodge layers here and there.

end result:

And yeah that’s basically how I draw hair?? Just throw a bunch of colors into your canvas and pray they make art lol. Good luck! <3

“Darkiplier VS Antisepticeye” is Mark’s Effort to Take Back Control From Dark: A Theory

(Disclaimer: I know nothing about any of Jack’s egos, so this is entirely about Mark’s. Disclaimer 2, Electric Boogaloo: I had my Frosted Mini Wheats like two hours late today, and that threw off my groove, so I’m sorry if I’m less eloquent than usual. Disclaimer III- This Time, It’s Personal: The only reason this isn’t under a read more is because someone told me to do that last time, but they weren’t very nice about it, so now I’m being petty. I’m sorry for being the worst. I still love you guys, though.)

In my last theory, we discussed the possibility that Dark is trying to take back control through more subtle means this time, and that he has a plan that we didn’t get to see during Markiplier TV. He’s been slowly giving hints of his existence in videos, teasing just enough to get people talking. He hasn’t revealed himself outright in any videos since Markiplier TV; he hasn’t denied being in them, either. 

Remember this interaction between @markiplier and @hufflepufftrax?

Mark quickly dispels rumors about Darkiplier when they’re not true. Why, then, would he not clear the air during the chaos of World’s Quietest Let’s Play 4, or any other video that has stirred up the community a great deal more than this photo ever did? The logical train of thought, then, is that these really were Dark appearances and we are supposed to know it. So, if Dark has been going about this so carefully all along, why would he reveal himself by sharing the spotlight in a comedy sketch? The short answer is that he wouldn’t. The reality is… say it with me now… it’s just Mark impersonating Dark!

Yeah, I know, no shock there. You’ve been hearing that since the video dropped. I talked about it when answering an ask, which I’m screenshotting and dropping below for your convenience, because I’m just a nice gal like that.

So now we have to ask, why would Mark do this? If Dark really is starting to take back control, this would be a dangerous time to pull a stunt like this, wouldn’t it? Well, it makes sense when you consider the fact that Mark has all but run out of options. 

Every time Dark is hinted at, the community goes wild. It doesn’t matter how subtle the hint may be- if the lights in the background of a video are red and blue, someone will point it out. Someone will draw him. Someone will get excited. And then, over time, everyone will get excited. 

Even if Mark tried to warn us, it only fueled the fire. Reaching out for help, trying to tell us that Dark is here– it is exactly what Dark wants. So Mark now has to try a different tactic. The only way that Dark can lose at this point is if he loses his allure to the viewers, and the only way to do that is to use his own method against him: Dark is pretending to be Mark, and now Mark is pretending to be Dark in order to discredit him. More specifically, he’s trying to get Dark out of the way, impersonate him, and make a fool out of him. That sounds… familiar, doesn’t it? Have we heard that somewhere before?

What if I change up the tense a little and word it a bit more like this?

“Pushed aside. Replaced. Mocked.”

Originally posted by rubies-and-oaktrees

That rings a few more bells, doesn’t it?

When we put all of these things together, a picture starts to form: Mark kept Dark at bay for years by making him a joke, but then he made the mistake of letting down his guard. Letting him back in. Now, Mark is fighting back using the only method that he has ever known to work. Why wouldn’t it this time? Making silly edits, taking over Mark’s twitter with edgy, emo poetry… it was enough to dissuade the community last time. So what could make it fail now? How could humor no longer be sufficient to drive Dark away?

The key difference this time is that Dark is not simply a wisp of a presence like he was years ago. He can’t be laughed off anymore. He is here. He is real. He is powerful. He does not like to be mocked, and this action from Mark will most definitely have consequences.

And the blame for that, really, falls on all of us. As Mark said all those years ago, we made Dark real.  Back then, he had to resort to humor to keep Dark at bay, because none of us would listen to him when he warned us. Now, history’s repeating itself,  but the outcome isn’t so sure this time. We learned nothing in the process. Now Dark has become too strong, because we, the viewers, keep letting him back in. Mark tries to tell us that Dark is here and we are thrilled about it.

So, really, the question isn’t, “Why would Mark do this?”

The question is, 

Why didn’t we listen?

Making gifs with 3 methods

In these tutorials, I would be showing you THREE different ways to make gifs in Photoshop (CC 2017) using different examples (I’m sure that most of these tutorials would also work in other versions of Photoshop though). Each tutorial has a sharpening tutorial with them using the video timeline. However, if your Photoshop does not have any “Convert to Video Timeline” option, I’ve also made THIS TUTORIAL for sharpening your gifs with Actions~

Method 1: Using screenshots

     ↳ Recommended for any video as long as you have an application to take screenshots. (These tutorials do not include how to take screenshots using another application)
     ↳ EXAMPLE 1 / EXAMPLE 2 (anime)

Method 2a: Clipping/Cropping a video with VLC

     ↳ Recommended for any video that could be opened with VLC. The video length could be longer than few minutes (e.g. movies, episodes, etc.)
     ↳ Tutorial in HERE

Method 2b: Clipped/Cropped video or short videos

    ↳ Recommended for any short videos (under 3-4 minutes long) such as music videos, advertisements/commercials, etc.
    ↳ Tutorial in HERE

Method 3: Clipping/Cropping a video with Photoshop

    ↳ Recommended for any video that could be opened with Photoshop. The video length could be longer than few minutes (e.g. movies, episodes, etc.)
    ↳ EXAMPLE 1 (movie) / EXAMPLE 2 (kdrama)

Just You

Requested: No.

Warnings: A little bit of angst and implications of sex. First one shot (does that count as a warning?)

Word count: 941


“Are you really upset that I was talking to Charlotte?” Shawn sighed pressing his hands against Y/N’s island.

“No, I’m not.” She answered taking off her heels.

“Really now? Because ever since she sat at the table you haven’t said a word to me.” He rolled his eyes and followed her to his room.

“Really,  I’m not mad that you two were talking, Shawn.” She sighed and started to take her bun down.  They had just returned from a fancy dinner date Shawn setup for just coming home.

“Then why are you mad, Y/N?” He questioned. “We just talked.”

“No, you didn’t!” Y/N finally snapped. “You did not just talk! Just talking is ‘Hey, how are you? Your tour was great!’ not sitting down next to you at our table during our date.”

“Just talking is a wave not flirting with you in front of your girlfriend and staying for the entire night, even ordering food, which your girlfriend payed for by the way!” She pointed out. “Your fans don’t even do that shit, because they know how to respect boundaries.”

“Y/N, it was just dinner! I will take on another date tomorrow, how about that?” He ran his hand through his hair.

“It wasn’t just a dinner, you asshole.” Y/N stepped up to his face. “It was a ‘Welcome home and great tour!’ dinner. Because I hadn’t seen you in six months! But, Charlotte has apparently. You are all over her instagram.”

“She showed up at my concerts Y/N.” Shawn tried.

“Oh really? Just your concerts? How about in this picture?” She pulled up a screenshot of Shawn and his Ex girlfriend at a cute little café. “Or this one?” She swiped over to display the one of the two in a hotel pool. “Oh wait, I’ve got one for you.” She swiped again. This time Charlotte was hugging Shawn around his waist adorably while walking. It was taken by someone else, a sneaky picture.

“Where did you get that?” He asked scrunching her eyebrows.

“One of your fans sent it to me, questioning if we we’re still together.” Y/N put her phone away. “Which frankly I’m questioning as well.”

“What? No. You’ve gotta listen to me, Y/N.” He tried.

“No, you listen. Do you know how much it hurts to see your ex girlfriend treating you the way I should be?” Tears welled in her eyes. “I should’ve been at every concert for you, not her. I should’ve been in the pool with you at your hotel and with you in an adorable café. It should’ve been me.”

“Y/N, it was just coincidence. She was just there!” He tried reaching for her, but she pulled away.”

“No it wasn’t. She did everything in her power to be everywhere you were. She dropped everything to be in your arms. She was doing everything I should have… maybe, you…should’ve stayed with her.” She started, tears falling.

“No, don’t you say that.” Shawn argued.

“Come on, Shawn.” She choked back a sob. “That’s the kinda girl you need. One that’s there with you every step of the way.”

“And that’s not you?” He stepped closer to her. “You didn’t stay up all night with me while I tried to write my songs? You didn’t take me to the hospital when that sushi gave me food poisoning? You didn’t answer my calls at three in the morning when you were tired and had class the next day? You weren’t there every step I took?” He eventually backed her into a wall.

“Shawn-.” She started.

“No, be quiet and listen.” He stopped her. “I don’t want someone who is there at every concert or in the pool with me at my hotel or a café. I want someone who let’s me fall asleep on their lap after a too long day. I want a girl who will tell me how cheesy a lyric sounds. I want a girl who I can come home to that is dancing around in my tee shirt and her underwear to Taylor Swift.” He brought his hand up to wipe her tears away with his thumb.

“I need that girl. I need you.” He whispered.

“I want to be her…” She closed her eyes.

“I don’t.” Shawn breathed out a laugh. “There’s a reason we’re not together anymore.”

“But-” Y/N started.

“No buts. Just keep being you. That’s all I want.” He pressed his lips to hers gently.

Y/N sighed into the kiss and wrapped her arms around his neck and pulled him closer. He smiled and pressed into the kiss, attempting to deepen it when Shawn’s phone began to buzz in his pocket.

Regretfully pulling away, he checked his phone to see Charlotte’s name across the screen. He moved to ignore it but Y/N had better plans. Taking the phone she swiped to answer.

“Sorry the number you have called belongs to a taken man whose girlfriend advises you to back off. You’re teetering on the line between annoying and pathetic. Bye now!” She didn’t give the girl a chance to speak before she hung up.

“What are you laughing at?” She asked feeling his chest rumble against her.

“You’re teetering the line between annoying and pathetic. Bye now!” He mocked.

She smacked his chest lightly. “I could’ve said much worse.” He only chuckled.

“Well, now that that’s over, I think movies and cuddles are in order.” He hummed.

“I have a better idea.” She smirked, pulling him in for a kiss.

{!} reposters...

Tumblr made the reblog/like/share button for a reason, USE IT! If you see something you like, utilize the buttons provided here for you. Don’t think “omg I’ve gotta post this! I’ll just put credit to the owner” this doesn’t benefit the owner in any way. I’m often quiet about this but I’ve seen it happening too much and i’m annoyed. I’ve seen a lot of my friends work get reposted and just other gfx/trans/gifs/art/fics/video editors/fansites and other content makers. People who make content don’t do it for it to be stolen or screenshot by someone without credit nor their permission.

 I don’t care how easy it looks, gif making is far more difficult than it seems. The amount of time it takes to find the video, the recoloring, making sure the gif flows well. You can’t just pop the video into Photoshop and take scenes from it, it’ll literally look like S.H.I.T. I’m mainly basing this off of gif makers because they’ve had the most reposting lately from what I’ve seen. It’s hysterical when you try to deny all accusations of stealing when the original has the same amount of frames, color, and the EXACT same size. 

If you aren’t aware of the fact that you’re doing this then I hope you realize this soon and put a stop to it. However, if you’re aware of this and continue to do so when others constantly message you about it plus deny it. Then you’re an ignorant person and give humanity a bad name. It’s really heartbreaking seeing your work online posted by someone else; it’s also really aggravating seeing the amount of notes it gets but then you look at your post with not nearly as much. It’s not about notes though, what hurts most is the support and recognition it gets. 

Without followers, the blogger is nothing. Please don’t support these reposters. Check out the post if you can, look into the blog, spot the errors. By you reblogging/liking their post this encourages them to continue. They feed off your support and only grow bigger by this.

People ask a lot how I edit my videos, so here’s a screenshot of what the timeline looked like at the end of the Zelda video (here’s a link if you haven’t seen it)

As you can see, it’s a total disaster. Every little rectangle you see there is pretty much each a separate mouth position that I have edited in when I do it frame-by-frame. All in all this took probably 10-12 hours for the full 45 second video. That’s actually a lot faster than it used to take me–I’ve found a lot of little time saving tricks and strategies to help speed things up a bit. I’ve thought about making videos or doing streams in the future where I break this process down better, so let me know if that is something that would be helpful for you!

DEEP (TOG College AU) Part ii

anonymous asked:

Do you have any tips or short cuts for drawing the Haikyuu boys?

Hmm short cuts huh… well, I guess there are some main important things that you can take notes on how to differentiate between anime boys and how to generally make things faster for you. So first:

1. Do your research and get the official anime artworks/character sheets for references usage. For example:

This is Bokuto’s Character sheet I got from google basically. Or HQ wikia page. Usually they have compilations of screenshots from anime or official arts.

2. Analyse each of character’s unique characteristics. And I’m not talking only about their hairstyles. It’s also things like the shape of their eyes.

Sample:  Bo has very round base for his eye shape that’s very distinctive from other characters.

For narrow-eyed characters with almond shapes, you can use ellipse as a base shape like Akaashi here:

Shape of eyebrows are also important, since there’s a lot of different variety of eyebrows in HQ characters (that’s one small thing I noticed).

3. What about anatomy? It’s very crucial to be well informed about their official designs. I did a LOT of research on various official artworks before I started drawing HQ. Do not use fanart as references, every artist has their own style/interpretation they developed from the official designs, therefore not valid references if you want to develop your own.

Example: This is a height difference between characters that I nabbed off …. somewhere.

Note that some characters have slighter built than the others, and depending on your personal interpretation, you can make them more muscular or skinnier.


Also, if you want to use various poses, I suggest taking advantage of google as much as possible for anatomical correctness.

Personally, I’m very picky for realistic anatomy so I use photo references all the time. Also, it’s important to just keep on practicing various poses, as anatomy and making them look natural is the hardest part of a human drawing.

In summary… References are God. Always keep it with you at all times! If you want to try deviate from official designs and develop a unique style, you can also do that, but remember that references are there to nudge you just in the right direction so your characters still look like themselves. (^-^)

Love is the Punchline Extra #1

the one with Harry making excessive amounts of puns, and they’re probably only funny because Y/N is madly in love with him.

Masterlist to Love is the Punchline

(A/N): This was the original ending to Love is the Punchline Part 3 but honestly I wanted to make it a separate, little blurb so I did. And that’s that. Not really a full piece in itself, which is why it’s got the “Extra” title. Dunno why I’m explaining all this, but I did. And that’s that. Hope you enjoy!
