Taking a photo

You can quickly and easily capture images of a scene in Sansar while either visiting or editing the scene. Sansar includes tools to help capture images at the correct aspect ratio for various purposes, such as the Sansar Store, event listings, and world listings.

  1. Choose Socialize > Take a photo from the main menu.

Capturing photos for listings

While adjusting the capture area of a screenshot, you can choose from the following options in the dropdown menu:

  • General purpose - Allows you to resize the capture area to any dimensions within the Sansar client.
  • For the Codex - Constrains the aspect ratio and minimum size of the capture area to be compatible with the Codex. Can still be resized, but the height and width cannot be adjusted independently. Read the image guidelines for information on Codex image content and file requirements. 
  • For the Sansar Store - Constrains the aspect ratio and minimum size of the capture area to be compatible with the Sansar Store. Can still be resized, but the height and width cannot be adjusted independently. Read the image guidelines for information on Listing image content and file requirements. 
  • For a Quest - Constrains the aspect ratio and minimum size of the capture area to be compatible with quests. Can still be resized, but the height and width cannot be adjusted independently.

Sharing photos to your Sansar profile

To share a photo to your user profile instead of saving it on your computer, you can click the Share button. This immediately opens a tab in your web browser, showing the image as it appears in your profile.

Once you have shared an image, it can be viewed by anyone who visits your profile on the Sansar website.

Note: Images saved in this way can currently only be accessed on the web, through your user profile.

To delete a shared photo (called Snapshots in your profile):

  1. Visit your profile's Snapshots page in your web browser.
  2. Click a snapshot to view it.
  3. Click Delete to delete the snapshot.
