upload a screen shot

I was trying to upload a screenshot and it says (Max size per file : 0 Mb) so i couldn't upload it. Is there a special way for screenshots?

This is what I do:

In game, I press F9 to take screenshot. Also, you can first press F12 to remove all the words if you want.

Then, I find the picture on my computer. If it is Firefox, it is Computer/Users/AppData/Local/Panda3D/Start/Pirates/Screenshots
If it is Internet Explorer it is the same except instead of Local it is Locallow.
When I find the screenshot, I double click on it, and it opens in Paint. (Or, you can right click on the screenshot, and choose COPY, and PASTE it into paint or any other photo editing program that you have).
Then while in the Paint program, I click EDIT. Here is where I click SELECT, and choose RECTANGULAR SELECTION.
I choose only part of the screenshot with this. It makes a square around the part of the screenshot that I want.
Then I choose CROP.
So now instead of having a large screenshot that might not upload, I have a much smaller one with just the important features in it. This also makes the important features of the screenshot bigger and easier to see because i have cropped it, and somehow that makes it bigger.
Now I choose SAVE AS, and pick .PNG , and name the picture.

NOW! I go to Photobucket, pick UPLOAD, and load the screenshot into photobucket.
Now, I can pick the DIRECT LINK to insert it in this forum. (If you look above, you will see the little green picture icon. Use it to insert the screenshot into here. It says 'Image' when you roll your mouse over it.)

This may be way more info than you needed Anne, but i hope it helped a little. If not, then feel free to ignore this, or ask me to clarify anything I might have typed.

***EDIT!!!*** Now with the use of the Pirates Launcher, your screen shots go to a different spot. Go to Computer/ProgramFiles/Disney/DisneyOnline/PiratesOnline/Screenshots. Also, I have been told that you do not need to upload your screenshot into a program like Paint first, but can directly upload it to Photobucket. Photobucket has cropping and editing features.***

Happy Picture Taking!
