How does one rip their own character portrait (of the quality you see in the initial character creation screen) or otherwise get a high-res portrait out of game?

I see a lot of these in sigs and banners and I have no idea how they got such high quality images, and I'm sure there wasn't the foresight to printscreen when they first made characters 4 years ago.

Right click on a person's name in chat, capture portrait.

Should then be saved in My Documents/Eve or similar.

That image is generally pretty poor quality, but by the time you have it reduced to a size suitable for signatures it looks great.

I tried this yesterday, after clicking "capture portrait" and seeing the little progress bar flash across my screen, I check my /capture/portrait folder and find...

it's empty.

I then asked my girlfriend to do it on her computer. She clicks a portrait, checks- she doesn't even have a /capture folder.

Are you sure you're checking My Documents\Eve?
The complete path in XP is C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\My Documents\EVE\capture

If that doesn't work, do you have the end:LUA switch on your eve shortcut? In that case, I believe things will be in the the capture folder where you installed EVE like it used to be.
