In case people missed it, you can take screenshots in the game really easily. Either hit the printscreen button on your keyboard, or the button to the right of the minimap. Either way, the game saves a big bitmap in MyDocuments\MyGames\Gratuitous Space Battles with the time and date in the name.
You probably want to convert the image to a jpg for actually using anywhere.
Another tip is to use the ‘U’ key to toggle the UI off for a screenshot, it often looks a bit more l33t. Don’t forget that you can pause the game ‘P’ and then zoom and scroll around to frame a decent shot.

I call this one No Escape. It’s not as chaotic as it could be, but I like to see the game show a side that goes past huge immovable objections firing at each other.
BRING ON THE GRATUITOUSNESS!!!

By the way, if we win can we get a free copy of GSB beta to give to other ppl?

Sambrookjm wins. Flawless Victory.
I couldn’t decide between my three favorite so…
Screen 1 shows a battle with fighters
Screen 2 shows a huge battle between cruisers no interface and screen 3 is slightly later in the battle with interface.
My turn! Here’s some explodiness…
The second one is my favourite. I absolutely love the light ray effect that happens whem you zoom right in!
I call this one Ruptured:

Clearly that missile has just gone through the frig! ;D

Apparently .BMP files cant be attached
Regardless, i have only taken a couple screenshots, but one ones featuring things exploding/exploded always seem best.
