In Sims world, all the gamers are allowed to create the Sims with distinct appearances and construct dreamy castles and cozy cabins. It would be terrific to post your Sims 4 screenshots on your Facebook and Twitter. I’d like to suggest three cool methods to capture your game screen.
Method 1: Sims built-in screenshot tool
Sims is equipped with built-in screenshot tool which enables all the players to capture the game scene instantly. Once you have seen an appealing scene, you can press “C” (default hotkey) to capture the amusing moment. You can also customize the default hotkeys in the control panel of the game.
However, some players always complain about that button “C” doesn’t work to take Sims screenshots in Sims creating mode. So the players have to press “PrtScn” button to make screenshots. What’s worse, the images taken in this way would be in poor quality, if the video cards are not so good. Maybe you could seek help from the following two methods.
Method 2: Apowersoft Free Screen Capture
Apowersoft Free Screen Capture is a powerful tool for capturing the screen images in high quality. Besides, it supports screenshots editor and social network uploader. Plus, it provides free cloud storage service which could save the screenshot you uploaded. In this way, you can share the image by sending the link to friends and also use password to protect it from being viewed by others. If you want to try this application, you can follow the steps below :
Step 1: Go to the website of Apowersoft Free Screen Capture then click the button of “Launch Application”. The program would be activated after loading.
Step 2: Customize the hotkeys in setting if you are not used to default hotkeys (“PrtScn” button).
Step3: Resume to the game and press the hotkey to capture the scene you like.
Step4: Once the region is selected, you will be given the control bar where you can highlight the images and add some annotations with the editing options.
