One Of These 17 Beautiful Screenshots Is Your Next Desktop Wallpaper

Joanne, aka PixieGIrl4, is a video game “photographer” in the same vein as guys like Duncan “Dead End Thrills” Harris.

She is very, very good at what she does.

Below you’ll find some of her best “screenshots” (click to embiggen), which are captured using tools and tweaks that can – and often does – melt hardware. So if you’re wondering why your copy of Game X doesn’t look as good, well, that’s because you play games to play them, not with the specific goal of turning them into beautiful pictures for the internet.

If you’re wondering how each was made, the link below will take you to her Flickr page, where each image contains a description of the settings employed.
