I always get questions about how I get my sim pictures in so high resolution as in high quality, so I thought I would just do a little post about it.

I saw Jillie tweeting about this video made by foursims .. and in this video, she uses a program called SRWE. And this tool has been a humongous help for me. And it works both in CAS and in game. When you appreciate great quality sim photos, you need this tool in your life. 🙂

Just don’t go overboard with the screen resolutions, or your PC will pass out. 🙅‍♀️
I usually take my screenshots in 4K(3840 x 2160).

*Simple Runtime Window Editor (SRWE) – a program that allows you to pick a running application and manipulate size, position, styles of its main/child windows.

Bonus tip: Using Reshade helps a lot too. Here are my favorite presets: click

*UPDATE: A simmer going by simagnitive has made a very in-depth video using this program, check it out: here

    Does it work the same when taking screenshots in-game for when I’m storytelling?

          The link is broken :( I have the same problem as Keturah, but I can't find any download links that have the actual application.

    Hey! Any idea why my The Sims 4 won't show when I open the app to select the open application? Thanks

      Open the SRWE as an administrator. :)

    Hello i am using for the first time a reshade. Now when i want to take a picture in the sims 4 the whole interface is visible. And when i go into tab mod the plumbob is always there. What can i do so it works like without reshade. I hope you will reply.

      Hi! You would need to remove the plumbob first with a cheat. Press CTRL + Shift + C and enter the ”headlineeffects off”. ("headlineeffects on" if you want to turn it back on)

    Thanks for your reply. So i am assume there is no setting to remove the interface when taking a photo with reshade?

    Taking a screenshot with reshade do I use "C" or PRNT SCRN, thanks.

      I would recommend Print Screen. Pressing C takes a screenshot but without ReShade effects.

    just for fun I tried using invokeAI (free software) to turn one of your pics to a real photograph. I put it in a new discord thread. You can see the prompt used - amazing possibilities :) https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/1123119263155236875/1123119632136536084/qweqwewqe.png just wanted to share M
