How can I make screenshots that don't have crap quality?

Question

Prenihility

So i used to just hit the Steam hotkey for taking screens (F12). Then i notice the file size is a bit over 100KB and the screens are really jagged looking. I've since done it a little differently. I make a clip in-game. Go to the Editor. Edit the clip to just get the camera angle I want. Then i take a screenshot. Printscreen key doesn't work for me. Whenever I paste in from clipboard it's BLACK.

 

How's it supposed to be done on PC? f*cking annoying.

If you go to steam settings>in-game, there's a checkbox for "save an uncompressed copy" which will make F12 take screens with better quality.

 

While prinstcreen seems to be wobbly for you, you can press windows key+printscreen to automatically save printscreens instead of just putting it into your clipboard; but from the sounds of things that might not work, so eh.

MSI after burner can be configured to take a screen on keypress, pretty good ones too as you run application it then allows to take screens or videos of it
