Step 1: Taking Pictures.

When taking pictures of your screen use programs like Snipping tool (Comes with Windows 7) or Icy Screen (Found at that allow you to select the area of your screen or even the entire screen , not cameras. Photo 1 is a picture of the screen with a camera, Photo 2 is with snipping tool, see the difference?

Step 2: Upload!

All you have to do now is upload the pictures! Sorry for the short instructable, I was just tired of seeing all these horrible quality shots of the screens. Hope this information helps!
