Okay, since we're posting satellite images now:


The smilie is where my apartment is.

Yes, I basically live in the apartment complex from Lady in the Water... except that our pool is shaped weirder, the tenants aren't as strange, and we don't have any water nymphs hanging around.

You have to take a screenshot. Look to the right side of your keyboard (kind of to the right of F12 and Backspace) for a key that says "Print Screen", hit that key while you have the map open, then go to some sort of image editing program MS Paint will work, although a better program would be better if you have one, and paste the image into it (click Edit > Paste at the top of the screen, or hit Ctrl + V on your keyboard), it will paste an image of your entire screen at the time you took the screenshot. Use a rectangular selection tool to click and drag and select just the map, then crop the image to just that, and save it as a jpeg.

It sounds more complicated than it actually is.

I can't get Google maps to load. I don't have an editing tool anyway, so it's not like it would work anyway.

I live in Seattle. Good enough.

Ummm, ok. Well, the above map is the first time I've ever tried this, so pardon all the white bits above and below. I'm not sure where I went wrong.

Yes. I have a pool.

all your houses look eerily similar I'd probably end up going into the wrong house if I wasn't concentrating
