I'm on PS2 I don't know how the PC version does it.

When I take a screen shot with my controller the pics are in POL:

Navigator/Filemanager/(screenshots appear here)

Hope that helps and no I don't think you're a noob. I found out about his just about 2 weeks ago. >.>

Now I'm taking screenshots like crazy. LOL

press ] to get rid of the log, then [ to take the shot. My keyboard settings are on Compact though.

Thanks guys

I have pressed scroll lock to take off the text and then print screen button, but nothing showing up in the file manager on POL. I dont think my keyboard is set to compact but ill have a go that way and see if it works...

I missed a wicked shot the other day, someone told me how to do it , as in scroll lock.print screen, so I did. Logged out and checked... nothing there !!

The shot i missed was of two Rampaging Bulls in Le Theine being goaded together by two high levellers, who werent attacking them as, when i asked why not, they were waiting for their friend to get there..... So there i was this little Taru stood between two big fat angry sheep....*sigh and nothing.... oh well ill have to go play in the farmers field for a while then shove one of my kids in, click the camera, that will have to be second best for now :(

Heheh j/k before any of you lot complain

For Elffie: If your keyboard is not set to Compact then (I'm assuming this works on PC and PS2) you can use ALT+[ to clear the screen then ALT+] to take the screenshot (those might have to go the other way around, can't remember). Then check under Navigator>File Manager and on the bar at the top make sure it is on Screenshots and not something like Greeting Cards or whatever else is up there.

For Lithe: The default storage folder on a Windows PC for screenshots is at C:\Program Files\PlayOnline\SquareEnix\PlayOnlineViewer\pub\home01\open\ScreenShots\FinalFantasyXI (copy and paste into Explorer). The files are already saved in JPG format, and I suggest moving them into a separate (easier to find folder) so that you can take more screenshots. I also recommend saving the default location to favorites in case you have trouble locating this thread again.

Elffie, I would recommend checking that location on PC also to see if you have taken screens. In your log window there is a message "Screen shot saved." so if you haven't seen that yet then you haven't been taking screenshots. Hopefully that answers everyone's questions.

Thanks for all the answers on where to find my screen shots on my PC ^^ but does anyone know the best way to save your pictures off line for XBox 360 users? I play on both my macbook running in Windows 7 and on my Xbox 360. I"ve been emailing sets of 10 screenshots from my POL on my Xbox to myself and then saving the files offline but is there any way to get to where they are saved on my xbox and transfer them to a USB drive? Please let me know ^^
