Second Life PhotographyHow many times have you stood back and looked at your Viewer screen then thought: “If I could just get that scene captured…”? Well, I’m here to tell you how.

And the image file itself is named screen_last.bmp

See? (click the images for a full-size view)

All you have to do is find your last image file, and there you go! An exact capture of the very perfect scene you saw rendered on your Viewer. (Second Life Photography is just more wheels on suitcases, man. I’m tellin’ ya!)
