Would taking a picture on my phone and uploading it work?

No, please use the Windows method of doing a Screenshot.
1) press ALT-PRNTSCRN on your keyboard with the window active
2) open paint or whatever you use for images
3) press CTRL-V to insert
4) save and up load

And please do that in your own (new) topic in the support section, this topic is not intended for general tutorial help.

I prefer the windows snipping tool. It lets you get the exact area you need to highlight.

That is exactly the reason why we don't ask for that - because a lot of people snip away important information because they don't understand that that part of the window was important for their case.

true. I like to think I know better. I will include everything, but you're right. Many would only give us a small piece.
I hereby declare Andar's advice to be absolute. :)

Thank you very much for this post. I feel like it saved me from several of the traps unaware beginners, such as myself fall into. Well technically I already had fallen into one or two :p I look forward to trying these suggestions and taking a more structured approach to this process. ;)

Hey, I'm just starting to learn and I'm really excited. I'm very inspired by horror games like Crooked Man and Mad Father and would love to create one that good (or even better) hopefully.

Thank you very much for writing this, it's very very helpful.

Even though I've been around for a few years, I like to come here often. There is always something cool and basic I sometimes forget.

An excellent essay and something I would wholeheartedly recommend to every budding game designer. Thank you for writing it.

Finally finished my menu redesign after like a month of coding! I hate designing menus... Good news though - I thought of a complete redesign for it now, so yay...
Still no scam calls all day... also I got a quick gig designing a mascot drawing for a small business, so I might actually make some green of my own after all. That would be a perfect job for me, since I love art and digital design.
Job concerns. Love where I work, but I have severe anxiety while I'm outside at night.
It's nice to see the evolution of my game: Here is a video with the first WIP:
