Here I'll show you how to get really neat screenshots, quick and easy! 1. Taking and localizing screenshots When in-game, playing or as a spectator, press "f5" any time to take a screenshot. Do this as many times as you like as you don't have to paste them somewhere in order to save them. Close or minimize (Alt+Tab) Counter-Strike and open my computer. Browse to the following directory to find the screenshots you've taken: [STEAM DIRECTORY]\steamapps\common\counter-strike source\cstrike\screenshots For me it would look like this: D:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\counter-strike source\cstrike\screenshots 2. Removing the HUD Open up the console and type in "sv_cheats 1" (You have to be admin or on a local server) If you want to increase the picture quality (Which you obviously want to) put in "jpeg quality 100" in the console. - To remove the main HUD details type in "cl_drawhud 0" - To remove the gun model type in "r_drawviewmodel 0" - To fly around freely type in "noclip" OR *UPDATE* To remove the cinematic bars in spectator mode type in "hidepanel all" in the console. (Thanks dfggf, nice name btw) CONSOLE HELP: HAVE FUN

    Pros: don't have pros, for me but it can help people.. noobs xD
    Cons: u forgot to only say one thing its the first them the #1, its "jpeg_quality 100" in the console, but if they are noobs them don't know the console, and u could say how to open it.. in a note of course " launch option = -console"
    Improvements: u can just add the things i said =)
    Notes: *oh and if u are a spec to remove the hud, u need to put "hidepanel all" in the console =)

    Detail: Very Detailed.
    Readability: Very easy to read.
    Usefulness: Not very usefull. Most people already know how to do this. Try to pick a not so much covered topic. Although it would help new players new to the game. 7/10

    Readability: Fine
    Usefulness: Meh... not really useful, sorry. I don't think many people make screenshot montages.
