Addicts How To: Take A Clean Image/Picture

Hey there Hoppy Tappers. Bunny jumping on by with another few quick tips in taking a good/clean picture to add to your collection, show off, download to Flickr, make a giant stitched image, etc.

We get many submissions daily to all of our outlet resources. Some I REALLY like, but they can be a little hard to see everything that is cool going on in the pictures at times with all the extra stuff going on in forefront (ie: the menu items). To make a clean image, it is just a matter of waiting a few more seconds BEFORE you take that screenshot to allow for the information and menu items to disappear from the screen (if you are in your movement screen, the information won’t disappear). This makes it easier also if you want to use any images for stitching apps or just to stitch in general. (As far as taking a screenshot, you can click the link HERE for more info.)

After waiting approx 30 seconds for menu items to disappear…


I understand that for some devices this may be difficult due to the button you press may make the menu items reappear or the volume icon to show.

So there you go, a simple thing to do to make your images all nice and pretty so everyone can see all the cool stuff going on.

Addicts How To: STITCH ME UP DOC!! (2 POVs regarding TSTO Stitching)

In our little world of addicts, it is fun to be able to see and share our individual ideas and designs with other fellow addicts. There are so many ways possible of doing this, but before we can start…some of us need a way to “stitch” our pictures together to show the entire design area due to we can only zoom out so far in the Simpsons Tapped Out game. In this post, we will show you an alternate way you can do this yourself.

Addicts How To: Using Dropbox to Upload TSTO Screenshots

I’ve noticed a few questions in the comments about how to share your photos on Addicts and what the best method is.  Personally I’m playing Tapped Out on an Android platform, although I will occasionally play on an iOS device as well, and use Dropbox for uploading.  While I know there are many other apps out there to help you upload your photos, I prefer Dropbox.  I’ve been using it for a while now so I’ve built up a fair amount of free storage and it’s my application of choice when it comes to backing up my photos or uploading my screenshots.  So today I wanted to go over a step by step guide on using Dropbox to upload and share your photos.

First, if you don’t already have an account with Dropbox you can set one up at their website (dropbox.com).  The accounts are free and come with 2GB of storage.  You’ll also earn free “bonus” storage space when you refer friends and download the PC application (like I said earlier, I’ve been using it for quite a while now and with all of my referrals I currently have about 6GB of free storage with them.  Not a bad deal for a free application!)  If you need help creating an account they have videos and a guided step by step process on their website.

So assuming you’ve already setup your account and are good to go let’s get into the finer details of how to share your photos.  It’s important to note that there are different methods when using an iOS device and an Android device.  Both devices have different ways to upload your files, so I will discuss each method separately.  Since I use an Android device I’ll start with that… Continue reading
