The game automatically saves to a worse quality than possible. If you use 3rd party software to take screenshots (fraps,...) this doesn't happen. There's also another program that makes it possible to adjust your ingame brightness/contrast colours etc but I can't recall the name of that.
For me the ingame screenshot utility and FRAPS produces identical screenshots. I've gone as far as comparing them zoomed 500%, super-imposing them, etc in Photoshop and then trying to do a blind test to see which one I "thought" was better quality but in the end I just can't tell the difference.
But I am aware for others the ingame screenshot produces some pretty terrible shit, like REALLY pixelated outlines and iffy textures despite them having their own settings on High/Ultra.
It seems to vary o_O
Best just use Fraps.
how do you add screens period.. ive tried and only ended up ruining pictures without anyway of reversing it
Cherish the quiet...before my STORM!!!

You can take bitmap pictures instead of default jpeg. This id done with "-bmp" command line.
Here are the instructions how to add bitmap command.-bmp
Forces the game to create lossless screenshots as .BMP files. Use for creating high-quality screenshots at the expense of much larger files.
- Right click on your GW2.exe and click create shortcut.
- Right click on your GW2 shortcut and select 'Properties'.
- In the 'Target Area' field you will see the location of your Guild Wars executable file: "<...>\Gw2.exe"
- Write the desired command line arguments after the quote marks, each beginning with a space: "<...>\Gw2.exe" -bmp

First you upload your image to the web, i.e. go to www.imgur.com > upload from computer > find image > start upload > then it will give you a whole bunch of links on the right side, you want to select the "direct link (email & IM)" and copy it, then on the forums here you use the image tags like so:
And paste the direct link between those tags.Code:[img] [/img]
And viola, the image will be added. But do keep in mind that super-huge images are discouraged because they don't fit too well with the website's layout, so instead I recommend dropping down where it says "Original image" and clicking on "Large Thumbnail" instead.
