I use the 'snipping tool' that comes with Windows 7. I found it by searching for 'snip' and then pinning it to my start menu.

I use Snipping tool or the keyboard commands.
*Minimize or close anything you do not want to show in your image.
*Hold own the alt key and tap the prt scr (print screen) key. This will capture the image.
*Open up an imaging program like paint (mine came with the computer).
*Use Ctrl (hold down Ctrl key) V (letter V) to paste the image into the program.
*You can edit or resize if you wish and Save As a name you will remember.
*Upload to here via ServImg -our photo hosting tool.

If you have a single screen image etc but do not want the whole desktop you the same method.
The only difference is to tap the single item with your cursor,

Here is mine... I actually ended up with this one by accident. I have a larger / uncropped version of it and I was showing it to my mom and I accidentally hit "Set as background". I'm on a widescreen monitor, so it cropped it like that. I liked it so much I just kept it.

I got my hands on some custom INI files, they're just .package files I drop in my mods folder. Anyway I started playing Bellatrix by Rflong7 and as night started to set this is what I saw.

It's now my desktop, I think it is just stunning, the INI files I got can now do this in all my Sims 3 Worlds. I can't wait to see this in the Winter as I know it will be stunning, enjoy. :-)

You can read all about it and get it here http://mahamudosim3.blogspot.tw/2013/01/environment-lighting-tweaks-v50-gold.html there are several variations. An like I said they are .package files you drop in your Mods folder. If you want the .package file I'm useing to cause that lighting effect I'll be happy to upload it. However you do have to put it in your Mods folder and it will effect the lighting in all Sims 3 Worlds.
