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.

Does a technical guide really require a twenty paragraph essay detailing how bad your first attempt will be and how unlikely you are to ever make money?
Like, I literally am making this game for a small group of friends and had no intention of trying to sell it in the first place. I don't need my initiative (and/or soul) crushed.
I just want to know what language the generator is speaking.

Now that I made this "What the MZ RTP is missing" spreadsheet it's itching me to fill some the gaps D:
Aaaaand I completely forgot about the RMMV Chicken Rave my brother decided to implement in a parody of my VERY FIRST UNFINISHED project. We could not escape the chicken rave... The chickens would block the ladder...
I love how I can look up a problem I'm having with my game, find a post from like six years ago that addresses the issue, and the solution provided still works in RPG Maker.
It's times like those that my life feels really easy XD
