How to share design made in IKEA kitchen planner?

dcgreen10December 19, 2012

I would like to post to this forum the kitchen layout/cabinet design I have made with IKEA Kitchen Planner. But I do not see how to do this. Can someone help me with this?

Are you trying to post it here for feedback? The best method I have found is to print screen (CTRL + PRTSC) and then paste it into MS Paint. Just crop it in paint, then save it as a JPG file and upload either to photobucket or directly here.

I have a MAC and seem to remember something about taking a screen shot and then uploading that pic to a photosharing site

Press command+shift+4 and drag over the area you want to capture. The screenshot will appear on your desktop. Then you can use the Choose File button above the message composition box here to upload a single image in a post. If you want to put more than one image in a post, you need to put them online someplace like photbucket and copy the code for embedding.

(It's an extra step, but for images you want to upload here, it's not a bad idea to open them in Preview and make a jpg copy--the software here likes jpg better than the png file that OS X uses for screenshots.)

You can also share your actual planner file but that would only be visible to people who've installed the planner plug-in. If you want to try that, email the design to yourself and copy the link in the email you get.

I have a mac, and I just took pictures of my screen with my phone and then uploaded them to photobucket. They're not great, but here's how they turned out:

Kevin, OS X has a good screenshot capability built right in to the operating system. Command+shift+3 captures the whole screen, command+shift+4 and drag to capture a partial screen. The screeenshots appear on your desktop. Very easy.
