Using Photo Mode in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

To use photo mode, press the Options button on your controller, and then select ‘Photo Mode’ from the menu that appears. You can also setup a shortcut on your d-pad for future use, making it easier to grab slick-looking action shots in the middle of combat.

Once you’re in the photo mode, players have the option to change the outfits of their characters, remove them entirely, zoom in on miniscule bugs floating around the world, move the camera, change the angle and depth of field.

Players can also change the lighting of the scene, from the intensity, type of light, color and light distance to allow you to really get creative with the look of your photos.

When you’re all set to take your photo, simply hide the UI and press the ‘Share’ button on your DualSense controller. You can now press the ‘Take Screenshot’ option that appears on-screen to snap your shot.

Where to Find Your Photo Mode Creations

Your screenshot will automatically be saved on your PS5 console. To access it, simply load up your Media Gallery from the home screen.
