HOUSING IDEA: Screenshots as paintings

Hi all,

I'd like to present this idea for Housing since, even if more regular paintings are added, all houses end up having the same paintings on their walls (even on your own houses if you have more than one), I was saying, I'd like the ability to take screenshots that could be added to a frame to be used as paintings on our houses.

You clear the UI, pose with your guild mates, take the screenshot, add it to the frame and... voilà! You have a unique painting for your house.

Or your group fighting a boss in a dungeon, Molag Bal in IC, the Posssessed Mantikore in SO, you fishing or crafting, whatever, even a landscape view or a picture of your own character.

Frames could be crafted, drop in game content, bought in crown store or so.

Once created, you could invite your guild mates and friends to see your unique paintings. :)

And of course, from time to time (if you like), you could renew your walls with new screenshots/paintings.

Hope you like the idea, thank you!

    That would be very cool! And then it would help make our houses a little but more unique. I would love this. :)

    This has been suggested before, and will be impossible to filter for non-NSFW pictures.

    Screenshots can easily be altered, and nothing prevents someone from putting a different picture in the screenshots directory.
    Make PC NA raiding great again!

    Down with drama!

    This will never happen. For 2 reasons:
    1. already stated in the forums -- NSFW pictures.
    2. Textures will need to be loaded for EVERYONE that visits your house - BIG load on graphics engine.

    But the house is a separate instance, so it wouldn't be that big of a graphics issue, right? Not THAT much stuff to load in a housing instance.

    I love OP's idea. It would be amazing!

    This has been suggested before, and will be impossible to filter for non-NSFW pictures.

    Screenshots can easily be altered, and nothing prevents someone from putting a different picture in the screenshots directory.

    The screenshots would be taken directly in the game, not in your Windows, Console, etc., I mean a system to capture your character view and put it on a painting frame to hang on a wall (a system designed by ZOS, not hitting the "Print Screen" on your keyboard), so everything remains in the game, not your computer. So, nothing goes to the screenshot directory in your PC.

    For example, you craft this special empty frame in a woodworking station as a furniture, position your character looking at the place/landscape/scene/etc. you want to be captured in the frame, and when ready you right click the empty frame furniture, select "Use" and done; the view is transferred to the empty frame (no NSFW risk here since no one can edit anything outside the game nor in the game).

    @ZOS_Holden I know you guys can't promise anything as you use to tell us, but do you think this idea is something ZOS can review? I hope it is. :)

    Thank you!
