Skyrim Screenshot Problem

Started playing Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and IT.IS.AWESOME. During my game play I encountered a beautiful scenery with aurora borealis and I just must have it. But to my dismay, my screenshot doesn't work!!!!!!!!!! Here is my fix based on a few other solutions (which didn't show me the fix directly but instead pinpointed me into the right direction).

Follow instructions base on picture given:

1.Well, there's only one actually XD. Just type the line as shown in the red box in Skyrim.ini which can be found in your Documents folder. The screenshots will be placed in your designated game folder.

TIP: If you're wondering how to remove the bits of user interface like compass, cursor,health bar,etc which are known as HUD(Heads-Up Display) just go to Options>Display and you'll fine HUD opacity. Just reduce it to lowest and done.

Now let me upload the one I got an...WTF?
On further research I found it was a bug with the in-game screen capture. I don't think there's a fix for this so I decided to use FRAPS instead. FRAPS does the trick fantastically. I can't even see the effect of lag when I screen capture using FRAPS. FRAPS even offer to do a video capture but it's very short for the FREE version. At least I got what I wanted :  :)

 I got these at Valtheim Towers. Just look them up through Google if you want to find it.
That is all.
