PostSubject: (SOLVED) Photographing Tips for a newbie?   September 20th 2012, 9:39 am

I'd love to create a Simblr to detail my Sim's stories and lives, but- being a bit of a perfectionist- I'm a bit tentative to do so until I know that my pictures will have the highest quality. If you don't mind me asking, what do you do or recommend for me- both in game (graphics and picture taking) and out of game (editing)?

If it helps, I have a MacBook Air (probably not the best gaming computer) and Photoshop Elements/ Lightroom, as well as Pixlr.

Thank you so much guys!! Love067

Well ello there! Welcome to Cstyles! I I've learned QUITE alot in the 3months I've been photo-editing on the computer but the best way to start out is to learn these things:

Basic in-game camera controls (on your keyboard)

Take A Snapshot :: [C]
Move Left/Right :: [←] / [→] and [A] / [D]
Move Forward/Backward :: [↑] / [↓] and [W] / [S]
Move Faster :: [Shift] + [←] / [→] / [↑] / [↓] or [Shift] + [A] / [D] / [W] / [S]
Zoom In/Out :: [Z] / [X] or [+] / [-]
Rotate Left / Right :: [,] / [.]
Enable Movie Making Mode (VERY USEFUL WHEN TAKING PICTURES) :: [TAB]


Movie Making Mode

Lower/Raise Camera Height :: [Q] / [E]
Roll Camera Counterclockwise/Clockwise :: [Shift] + [A] / [Shift] + [D]
Level Out The Camera Roll :: [Shift] + [S]]


Camera Mods
Also these camera mods are VERY helpful for closeups and different angles of your sims:

Aikea Guinea's No Drift/Lower Level Free Cam Camera Mod

Cmomoney's No Drift/Lower Level Live Mode Camera

Claeric's No Camera Fade for Sims


HQ/HD Mods

If you believe your computer can handle it there is also aWT's HQ Mod and if that seems too complicated, creator Dachshundsr4me also made an HQ graphics replacement Here.
