Hello GRUEN participants!

I'm very pleased to see the recent posting activity on the "Sharing progress using SimCity" forum, including Anabel's excellent contribution!  I'll post some replies to individuals tomorrow, but I thought I'd share a tip on how to capture screenshots without all the clutter of icons on the screen (although Faya's recent posts were very interesting as she shared the WAY she's using SimCity Buildit to evolve her city towards a greener design!).

Here's a few screenshots with tips on how to do "Photo Sharing":

This is my Green Valley region.  I'll post more info about the "equitable access" design later.

See the Settings icon?

Select Photo Sharing

Zoom, pan, and tilt until you get the shot you want, then use the camera button to get a screenshot:

You can reduce the file size with an app, or just store it on your SD card, perhaps in a new folder:

Reduce size or just store

Finally, when you are posting you can use the "Insert Image" button and upload your screenshot file from your SD card folder.

I hope that helps explain how to do Photo Sharing!

Best wishes,
