#183 Screenshots for Fedora 21
Closed: Fixed None Opened 7 years ago by chrisroberts.

Lets get the screenshots together for the different spins We need screenshots of Fedora 21 Workstation as well as each spin (KDE, Xfce, LXDE, etc.).


As screenshots were usually coordinated in websites GA ticket, we should add robyduck to CC to make sure it's not done twice. This time we want screenshots not only for websites but also for marketing purposes. So thanks marketing for taking care!

Hi,

Is there a suggested parameter set for the screenshots - size/resolution/whatnot? I'm assuming they'll all need to be of the same size, and websites probably needs them to be in a particular aspect ratio too for consistency? I can probably get this done once I know the exact requirements :)

Thanks,
Ankur

Ankur,

Please see earlier editions for guidelines:

But I think that page is ripe for updating. 1024x768 is pretty ancient at this point, especially now that we're seeing a bunch of high-resolution displays hitting the market. (My X1 Carbon has 2560x1440, my external display is a 4K Dell that does 3840x2160).

Thanks jzb. I've added a bunch of workstation and anaconda related images - and added bullets like Chris had done last time. They're 1024x768 (+/-2px because my dragging isn't very accurate) for the time being since I pulled them off a VM. Please remove ones that aren't needed :)

I'll do other spins soon - apparently, there's a bug that doesn't permit a user to install multiple DEs if you're running a product (fedora-release-workstation and fedora-release-nonproduct conflict etc.), so I'll probably need to fire up new VMs for the other spins.

Ankur, note that the virt-manager system allows you to take a screenshot off the VM guest directly from the menu, and you don't have to click/drag anything. If you have the resolution of the guest set at 1024x768, you'll get a perfectly sized image. (This should of course work for any resolution you have set -- whatever is decided as correct for our screenshots.)

Completed - screenshots can be found at the following link:

Emailed Mattdm and JZB to put in our final release notes.
