Screenshot Challenge

A while back I had the idea of doing an instagram challenge for video games. That idea then evolved into this; the Screenshot Challenge. The idea of this challenge is to join in the weekly twitter and instagram tag #screenshotsunday and making things a bit more interesting by having a weekly prompt. Starting from March 2017 I’ll be posting a set of prompts/ for each sunday. They will be purposefully open or vague so you can interpret them as you wish. There are only two rules; follow the prompt and post on a sunday (as much as you can, if you’re a bit late don’t worry – it’s the taking part that counts 🙂 ).


How you join in is totally up to you! You can post on any social media with just an image, using the hashtags #justgeekingbysc and #screenshotsunday. Or you can post a entry with more details and screenshots. It is entirely up to you! You can choose to stick to one game, or change each week. It can be on any format, and from any time – you can take screenshots that day if you wish or use one taken previously.


Posting to Instagram

I wanted to add a little bit about posting screenshots to instagram. You could, technically, just take a photo of your screen using your phone. What I find works better is using a site like which allows you to upload images from your PC and send it to an app on your phone. This then downloads the image on your phone and lets you open it in instagram. If you know of any other apps or that do the same thing please let me know and I’ll add them here.

Another method suggested by Kathy is to post the screenshot to twitter first, then save it from twitter to your device. You can then pop it onto instagram and voilà!


I will be taking part on instagram @JustGeekingBy so feel free to follow me and join in! I can’t wait to see what you guys have to share 🙂


Screenshot Challenge - March Prompts!







  1. This looks kinda like fun. Would you consider running it again?

    1. Funny you should ask that 😉

      It never took off when it was live, however, since then it’s actually been the most searched for thing that brings people to my blog. So there are definitely people interested and I’ve learned a lot since originally doing this the first time about. I’m thinking about a reboot, but it’ll be several months away as I have my hands full right now.

  2. What an awesome idea! I’ll try my darnedest to join in. Can’t wait to see your screenies!

    1. Thanks Ashlee, I’d love to see yours 🙂 I’ll be compiling all mine in a post at the end of the month as well as putting them up on instagram.

  3. Sounds like fun! I’ll see what I can come up with. I’ve not heard of Later, but here’s my method of posting to Insta from pc. I first post to Twitter. Then I save the photo from my Twitter account to my phone. It’s not really a speedy way, but I do get posts to 2 social media that way.

    1. Hi Kathy, thanks for sharing. I’ve added that method to the post 🙂
