How to edit screenshots using GIMP 2.8
Step 1:
Open GIMP 2.8
Spoiler
Image
Step 2:
Create new then choose your image size
Spoiler
Image
Step 3:
Go to your SAMP screenshot folder then choose a screenshot that you want to edit, drag it to GIMP so you can start
Spoiler
Image
This is how it would appear, lets now create a border
Spoiler
Image
Step 4:
Right click on a layer then click on Alpha to Selection
Spoiler
Image
Step 5:
Click "Select" then click Border
Spoiler
Image
Step 6:
Choose how huge your border, I'll choose 1 pixel which I always use on my screenshots
Spoiler
Image
Step 7:
After clicking OK, create a new layer, this will be the border. Make sure it's above the screenshot so it can be seen
Spoiler
Image
Step 8:
Click the Bucket fill tool
Spoiler
Image
Step 9:
Use the Bucket Fill tool then select the new layer we created, then just click on the selected borders. It would appear like this
Spoiler
Image
Lets put some text now. I will just choose random text just to show how I make it.

Step 10:
Go to to a screenshot you want, I dragged it temporarily so I can copy the text
Spoiler
Image
Step 11:
Use the Rectangle Select tool then drag on to the text you wish to copy.
Check SS and see how I do it
Spoiler
Image
Step 12:
Copy the selected texts
Spoiler
Image
Step 13:
Paste it on your 1st screenshot
Spoiler
Image
Step 14:
After pasting, click on new layer so the pasted layer will become a new layer. Move it to the position you wanted.
Spoiler
Image
Step 15:
Click on "File" then click Export to save your work
Note: I'm using GIMP 2.8 because I find it easier than the other tools. I can drag a screenshot to GIMP then I can easily arrange its position without losing its size and quality.
You can check the DeMeo crime family official thread and view my edited screenshots.
If you have any questions, feel free to post your questions in the comments or send me a PM, I'll be glad to help you in your problems.

Edit screenshots used to:
  • Avoid metagame
  • Beauty and clear form
  • Only RP seen.
There is a point,

Lol there's the fact that you cannot even spell English properly, and you can clearly see in my screen-shot that you did not even type "assault" properly, you just ruined my IC criminal record with your shitty English, and of course you guys, and specially people from egybt that login with arab names and keep bunnyhopping wanna rob, cannot even role-play properly, that's why you just apply for a legal faction then follow the guides step by step to reach your ranks, i bet most of you doesnt even know how maverick runs goes, and you will never do because you only got promoted with not effort by your fellow egybtians, one of you tries to join a faction, then the rest of the idiots follow him so they get promoted immediately, claiming that he is good, while they cant even reach the outsider rank in illegal because the RP is strict there.

Don't run any other program, only GIMP maybe will fix the problem. On the first time I had the tool, it doesn't respond for a minute but I just waited for it to respond.

@Eugine - This is a tutorial for GIMP 2.8 and yes you can use photoshop to edit screenshots, I just found GIMP 2.8 as an easier tool.

thanks everyone.
