i cannot take screenshots in sto.  no folder either.  i know where to look.  used /sreenshot_ui.jpeg in ui.  then i tried /bind + screenshot_ui.jpeg.  nothing no folder either.  i made a custom alien i wanted upload.
the screenshots are saved in:

E:\PWE GAmes\Star Trek Online_en\Star Trek Online\Live\Screenshots

Just change the 1st part to your particular save area. Now the trick is if you dont have a scrrenshot folder just create a new folder in the Live Folder and name it Screenshot. This happened to me in another PWE game and that fixed it

Got it to work but a couple of things.

1. /sreenshot_ui.jpeg is not the proper command to take a screenshot. The correct command is /screenshot_ui_jpg
2. I don't think you will be able to use the '+' key as that is used in the actual making of some keybinds so when you try to use it in a bind command the game thinks its for something else

i emailed stoacademy here's how upload:

You need to visit the tailor, edit your alien character, and click the "Save" button. It will generate a a jpeg and save it in STO's screenshot folder which you can upload.
