How to take faster screenshots on the playstation 4

When you’re caught up in your favorite game—you know, the one that you can play over and over again, and still love every second of it—and something amazing happens, you want to capture it as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, the PlayStation 4’s default screenshot setting is slow. Here’s how to fix it.

The default action for taking a screenshot on the PS4 (or PS4 Pro) is to long-press the Share button on the controller—since a regular tap will just open the share menu. There’s a setting called “Easy Screenshots” that flips these roles, making a quick tap grab a screenshot and reserving the share menu for a long-press action. It really just makes more sense this way.

To enable Easy Screenshots, head into your PS4’s Settings menu. Scroll over to the luggage-looking icon, then click on it.

From here, scroll down to “Sharing and Broadcasts,” and enter this menu.

Alternatively, you can also press the Share button to open the Share dialog, then scroll down to “Sharing and Broadcast Settings.” Either way you’ll end up in the same place.

The top option in this menu, “Share Button Control Type,” houses the screenshot settings we’re looking for. Click to jump in.

Highlight “Easy Screenshots” and tap X.

That’s pretty much it! From this point froward, you’ll be able to instantly grab a screenshot by tapping the Share button, which is actually a much bigger deal than it sounds like for anyone who takes a lot of screenshots.

How to take faster screenshots on the playstation 4

Taking screenshots during PlayStation 4 gameplay can immortalize a moment that would otherwise have been lost quickly, helping you prove your mighty prowess — or helping you display the abject failure of a friend or rival.

You can take PS4 screenshots of active gameplay, of your conversations, or of anything else displayed on screen while you use the console. And taking said snaps couldn’t be much easier.

Here’s how to do it.

Check out the products mentioned in this article:

PlayStation 4 (From $299.99 at Best Buy)

How to screenshot on your PS4

First, locate the share button on the Dualshock 4 controller. It is located just above and to the right of the keypad on the left side of the controller and is clearly labeled “SHARE.”

The easiest way to take a screenshot is to simple hold down the share button for one second.

For an even faster snap, tap the share button, which pulls up the share menu, and then quickly tap the circle button on the right-hand side of the controller.

How to customize your screenshot settings on PS4

If you want to be able to take many screengrabs quickly, however, you can reprogram the share button’s functionality.

To do so, go to the settings menu and scroll down and click “Sharing and Broadcasts.”

Then, select “SHARE Button Control Type” and scroll down to select “Easy Screenshot.”

Now a single fast click on the share button will take a screenshot, while holding it down will open the share menu.

How to take faster screenshots on the playstation 4

Sometimes you just have to stop and take some screenshots while gaming, because modern games are overwhelmingly beautiful. And when you get the perfect shot, you want to show people. Or maybe those people are in it! Here’s how to tag people in screenshots when you share them directly from your PlayStation 4.

First off, if you’re not sure how to take a screenshot, we have you covered. And if you end up taking a lot of screenshots, I highly suggest switching the share button function to take faster screenshots.

Now that you have screenshots in hand, here’s how to share them.

First, fire up the Capture Gallery.

How to take faster screenshots on the playstation 4

From there, go find the screenshot you’d like to share. With it highlighted, press the Share button on the controller (or long-press it if you have Easy Screenshots enabled).

How to take faster screenshots on the playstation 4

This will immediately open the Share dialog with a variety of options, including options for sharing to Facebook, Twitter, your Activities feed, a message, and even in a community. Since the first two options are external networks, we’ll take a look at those first.

Sharing PlayStation 4 Screenshots to Facebook and Twitter

Even though they’re two different networks, sharing to Facebook and Twitter effectively works the same way—the end results just ships off to a different little section of the internet.

Once you’ve selected your network, the sharing screen will load.

How to take faster screenshots on the playstation 4

From here, you can edit the comment that will be shared with the screenshot—it defaults to just two hashtags (the game name and #PS4share). You can also choose how broad of an audience you want to share with if you’re sharing to Facebook.

To tag another player in the screenshot, use the “Select Players” box. This will open your friends list, where you can choose the player(s) you want to tag.

How to take faster screenshots on the playstation 4

Note: The players must have their Facebook/Twitter accounts connected before tagging will be allowed for that particular network.

Once selected, move over to the “Confirm” box and click it. This will select the player and tag him or her.

Back on the Share Screenshot page, you can select the privacy for PSN.

From there, simply click the Share button to magically poof the screenshot to the designated network. Bam!

Sharing PlayStation 4 Screenshots to Your Activity Feed

If you share a screenshot to Facebook or Twitter, it will also automatically share to your Activity feed as well, so there’s no need to do it twice.

If, however, you just want to share to Activities, you can do that too. On the share page, select “Activities.”

How to take faster screenshots on the playstation 4

This option is much simpler than the Facebook/Twitter share pages, as it’s just a quick dialog box, along with the screenshot and game. Use the “Tag Players” box to tag players.

How to take faster screenshots on the playstation 4

Just like with Facebook and Twitter, you’ll select the person you want tag, then use the Confirm button.

How to take faster screenshots on the playstation 4

Lastly, you can select who can see the activity.

After that, click the Post button and away you go.

How to Delete Posts from Your Activity Stream

If you accidentally share something and need to delete it from your Activities, you can get rid of it pretty easily.

First, find the game that the share came from, then head down to “Activities.” This will show everything you’ve shared regarding that particular title.

How to take faster screenshots on the playstation 4

Click on the post you want to remove, which will open it in a new window. On this page, press the Options button on your controller, then choose “Delete.”

How to take faster screenshots on the playstation 4

It’ll ask you to confirm the deletion. If you’re sure, click the OK box.

Done and done. It’s like it never happened.

The PlayStation 4 was built with sharing in mind. There’s even a “share” button on the controller, for crying out loud. But at the moment, it can be kind of difficult to access your shared stuff without spamming your friends on Facebook and Twitter.

For now, you can only share videos you record to Facebook—Sony says YouTube integration is coming. But video, schmideo—I’m just as excited about the PS4’s screenshot capability. I loved that Sony made their Vita handheld capable of taking screenshots, and have more great Persona 4 Golden screenshots on my various devices than I know what to do with. I’m also a screenshot addict on PC, constantly riding F12 in search of sharable moments.

The PS4’s screenshot tool isn’t all it could be, at least not yet. For starters, you can only share your screenshots one of two ways: Either post them on Facebook or put them on Twitter. Until Sony makes it possible to directly access your Screenshots on your local network and sync them to your computer (like you can with the Vita), the whole thing feels unwieldy and incomplete.

If you do decide to share screenshots to Facebook or Twitter, you’l probably have the usual spam-fears. You likely have your PS4 linked to your actual Facebook account, since that lets you do the cool real-name ID stuff. But who wants to risk spamming their Twitter followers and Facebook friends with #PS4share screenshots? Not me, anyway. Fortunately, Twitter allows for a decent workaround. Plenty of people have already been using this trick, but I figured that on the off-chance you wanted to get at your PS4 screenshots and hadn’t figured it out, I’d share.

The trick is: Set up a dummy twitter account. Make one with an easy-to-remember name and password (mine is KirksPS4), then make it a private account. Follow it from your actual Twitter account. Then, log into the dummy account from your PS4 under Settings>PSN>Link with other services>Twitter.

4K HDR content as it was meant to be seen
This season’s TV, movies, and games will look great on your new TV.

The other thing you’ll want to do (if you’re like me) is set the Share button to immediately take a screenshot at first press. As outlined in our PS4 tips post , that’s accessed by holding down the Share button to enter the Share menu, pressing Options and setting the “Share button control type” to “Easy Screenshots.”

Once you’ve done that, you can hit the Share button as quickly as you’d hit F12 in Steam, then later go through your pictures and tweet the ones you want to keep. Visit your dummy account on Twitter and pull the screenshots onto your phone, computer or other device and share ’em as you like.

Plenty of things about this aren’t ideal . For starters, it’s a logistical headache, when this whole thing should (and hopefully will) be seamless. Also, shared images come down at 1024×576 resolution. We can only hope that Sony will add support for full HD 1920×1080 screenshots in the future. The PS4 doesn’t have many Twitter functions at the moment, but when it does, you might want to link your actual account, since you can’t switch between two accounts easily. Then again, hopefully by the time Sony adds more Twitter functionality, they’ll also make it easier to export your screenshots.

Tips For Using the PS4

Getting a PS4? We have some tips to help you ensure you’re having the best possible time with it.

It’s nice that there’s a way to get at them at all, though. The existing resolution isn’t terrible, and the images are fine for sharing that pretty vista or goofy easter egg you found. Here are a few shots of Assassin’s Creed IV I took this weekend:

Not great in terms of resolution, but not terrible by any means. The whole process is much more complicated than it should be, but it’s still a good way to access your PS4 screenshots without worrying about spamming your friends, losing followers or cluttering up anyone’s Facebook feed.

And hey, if you’ve got any great gameplay shots you’ve taken over the last couple weeks, I hope you’ll share them below.

How to take faster screenshots on the playstation 4

What do you get when you mix 4K graphics, faster frame rates, and bigger game universes? Even better photos and videos you can save and share with friends from your PlayStation 5.

The PS5 DualSense controller has a function that can do all of this. It’s called the Create button, and it’s the successor to the PS4’s Share button.

How the PS5’s Create button works

Located on the top-left of your controller and designated by a three-lined icon, the Create button can capture your gameplay in several ways.

Hitting the Create button pauses gameplay, and from there, you can take screenshots, start recording videos, save a video of things you’ve already done, edit photos, or launch a livestream that can be seen online.

Quick note: When taking photos, your screenshots will be saved as .PNG or .JPG files. If you have a 4K television, screenshots will be taken in 4K with HDR at 3840×2160. If not, the images and videos will default to 1080p at 60 frames per second. Videos can be up to an hour long, and saved as .MP4 or WebM files.

You can change these options by going to the Settings app, then “Captures and Broadcasts.”

If you’re looking to take screenshots or record video of your gameplay on the PS5, here’s how to do it.

How to take screenshots on the PS5

    On your PS5 DualSense controller, push the Create button once.

A menu will appear, giving you the option to begin recording, take a screenshot, or start broadcasting.

How to record video on PS5

  1. On your PS5 DualSense controller, push the Create button.
  2. In the menu that appears, toggle to “Start New Recording” — it’s the option to the right of “Take Screenshot” and select it. A black box with a timer will appear at the top of your screen.

How to record and save Recent Gameplay

Whenever you open a game and begin playing, the console automatically starts recording your gameplay, even if you didn’t open the Create menu and hit the record button. You can later use an option in the Create menu to save this gameplay as a video, and upload it to Twitter or YouTube. Here’s how to do it.

How to save Recent Gameplay

    Open the Create menu by pushing the button.

Once opened, toggle over to “Save Recent Gameplay” and click it. It’s the option to the left of the screenshot button.

Quick tip: You can double-press the Create button to quickly save the last 30 seconds of gameplay.

How to start a livestream from your PS5

If you’re interested in broadcasting your gameplay to platforms like Twitch or YouTube, you can do it by linking your Twitch or YouTube account in the settings section of your PlayStation.

  1. Sign into YouTube or Twitch on a web browser or a mobile device.
  2. Open the Settings menu on your PS5 by clicking on the gear icon in the top-right corner of the Home screen.
  3. Go down to “Users and Accounts.”

Quick tip: You can also use your mobile device’s camera to access the QR code link.

How to view your PS5 screenshots and videos

Every photo and video you take will be saved in the Media Gallery, where they can be edited with colors, font changes, and more.

More importantly, though, the Media Gallery lets you share photos or videos on Twitter, YouTube, or with your PS5 friends.

How to access the Playstation 5 Media Gallery

The Media Gallery can be accessed in three different ways.

The Game Library. If you open the Game Library — it’s the rightmost option on the PS5’s homepage — and then go to the “Installed” tab, you’ll find the Media Gallery at the bottom.

How to share photos and videos from your PS5

Using any of the ways mentioned above to access your photos or videos via the Media Gallery, you can send them online to a linked Twitter or YouTube account, or with your PS5 friends. Just remember that you’ll need to link your PS5 account to Twitter or YouTube to share there — go to the Users and Accounts menu, as demonstrated above.

How to share photos and videos with players on your PS5 friends’ list

  1. Open the Media Gallery and select the content you want to share.

Quick tip: On the left-hand side, there’s a filter you can select to narrow down which photos and videos are displayed.

Today Sony finally launched its latest firmware update for the PlayStation 4: the eagerly anticipated 1.70. It’s a biggie alright, and riddled with a slew of perks and new features, one of which is the all-new footage editing app, Share Factory.

If you want a comprehensive 1.70 checklist then be sure to visit Stefan’s breakdown from earlier. Stick around, however, if you want a quick and easy guide to start sharing your latest PlayStation creations.

First off, you may be wondering where Share Factory is. It’s not automatically downloaded to the system as part of 1.70 so you’ll have to dip into the PlayStation Store and find it via the search function.

How to take faster screenshots on the playstation 4

After installing the 942MB file, boot it up and get to work on a new project. We won’t talk you through the ins and outs of Share Factory here. What we will say, though, is that it’s remarkably simple and intuitive, the process made even easier if you happen to be a Premiere or Final Cut whizz.

How to take faster screenshots on the playstation 4

All done? Great, now hit the Options button, render you project, and save it.

How to take faster screenshots on the playstation 4

Next up, make sure you have a USB stick ready to go. Just for reference, Share Factory will only allow you to create fifteen-minute projects but this shouldn’t be a problem – you can weave together the exported videos using basic PC software. Before that, however, you will need to find the Capture Gallery via the menu bar. Note that USB sharing options are not available via the regular Share button menu.

How to take faster screenshots on the playstation 4

The next step is simple. Find the video clips and screenshots you, hit the Options button, and viola. Note that 1.70 also lets users export 30 screenshots at once – a real time saver!

How to take faster screenshots on the playstation 4

If there’s anything worth mentioning at present it’s perhaps the quality of exported video and screenshots. We’ll have some footage up later, but here are a couple of quick stats. A nine-minute video weighs in at just below 600MB with screenshots flitting between roughly 150-450KB in size. Note that the screens used in this guide have been purposefully cut down for smoother loading.

Update: and here’s the video. Understandably, being a tarted up LEGO game, it doesn’t show of the feature best capabilities. Still, it turned out much better than expected, especially compared the Facebook sharing option and low-end capture gear.

Already made an awesome montage? Done something particularly clever with Share Factory’s editing options? Go ahead and send us a link in the comments below or through Twitter.

Learning how to take screenshots on Steam takes a little legwork. While modern consoles have made it easy to grab screenshots while you’re playing a game, it’s not always so easy for PC gamers. Those using Steam, Valve’s digital storefront, often have to do some sleuthing to figure out how to take high-quality screenshots and retrieve them later.

Well, sleuth no more! We’ve got everything you need to know about snapping and finding Steam screenshots on Windows, Mac and Linux.

  • Play the best PC games
  • Try the best PC game controllers

How to Take Steam screenshots on Windows

The Steam app for Windows has built-in functionality for taking game screenshots, so you don’t have to rely on the old “PrtSc” keyboard button. Simply press F12 while in a Steam game and you’ll save a photo of your current in-game screen.

You can change the default screenshot key by going to the Preferences section under the Steam menu. From there, find the In-Game menu and click on the box under “Screenshot shortcut keys.” Then, press the key on your keyboard you’d prefer to use, and that becomes the new shortcut.

How to find Steam screenshots on Windows

The quickest way to find your Steam screenshots is via Steam. In the top menu bar, click “View,” then select “Screenshots” from the dropdown menu.

If you want to find the screenshots in Windows Explorer, simply click “Show on Disk from the Steam Screenshots folder. It will open up the relevant folder on your PC, and show you where your Steam screenshots are located.

How to take Steam screenshots on Mac

As in Windows, F12 is the default key for taking Steam screenshots on Mac operating systems. However, if you have a MacBook Pro with a Touch Bar and no permanent function row, it may now be immediately obvious how you can do that. The solution is to press and hold the function key (Fn), after which the function row will appear in the Touch Bar. Hit F12, and you’re good to go!

Changing the default screenshot key is as easy on Mac as it is on Windows. Access Preferences from the Steam menu, and navigate to the In-Game option. Click on the box under “Screenshot shortcut keys” and press your preferred shortcut key on your keyboard. Voila! You’ve got a new way to take Steam screenshots.

How to find Steam screenshots on Mac

Once again, the easiest way to view your Steam screenshots is through the Steam app itself. On the top menu, select “View > Screenshots,” and you’ll see any screens you’ve taken using Steam’s built-in screenshot tool. Hit the “Show on Disk” button on the same page, and the external screenshot folder will come up.

Outside of Steam, the correct path for locating Steam screenshots on Mac is “Library/Application Support/Steam/userdata.” If your Mac has multiple users, make sure you’re looking under the correct username! Once there, search the userdata folder for “screenshots” to find your saved screens.

If you can’t find your Library from the Finder app, select the “Go” dropdown menu and choose “Go to Folder…” From there, type in “Library” and you’re on your way! You can also change the location of the screenshot folder in the same Steam menu where you found the screenshot shortcut key option.

How to take Steam screenshots on Linux

The default in-app shortcut for Steam screenshots is the same on Linux as it is on Windows and Mac: F12. As on other operating systems, users can change the shortcut key in the Steam In-Game menu.

How to find Steam screenshots on Linux

On Linux, the default directory for Steam screenshots is

/.local/share/Steam. Once there, find the userdata folder and either perform a search, or navigate your way to the screenshots folder. To do the latter, you may have to open several folders with numbers on them; the numbers correlate to different user accounts.

Say “cheese!”

Now that you know how to take Steam screenshots on the three major computer operating systems, it’s time to capture those precious moments. Remember, when in doubt: F12 is your friend.

I thought I’d make this quick little guide on the best methods to take full-farm screenshots, as this question still comes up often.

PC

In the SMAPI console, type export current all and a full screenshot of the area you are currently in will be saved to Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Stardew Valley\MapExport . You can screenshot not only your farm, but any other area in the game. Here are some of my samples, including the town and beach. Additional features include exporting an image of all areas in one go with export all all . For all commands, type export help .

Advantages: gives you a “live view” of your farm, with all your animals, NPCs, crops, trees and weather exactly as you see it in game. Feels much more cheerful and true-to-concept unlike a rendered image from upload.farm. Screenshot process is super quick and easy, it supports mods (i.e. if you have anything on your farm that visually changes it) and you can take screenshots of any time of day.

Disadvantages: people who can’t/don’t want to mod can’t use this.

Recommended if: you want to take “live” shots of anywhere in the game with minimal effort, and you already have SMAPI set up. Huge thanks to the author, spacechase0.

Method 2: upload.farm

Go to http://upload.farm and upload your save file (in the format Name_ , save locations can be found here). The website will render an image (example). You can also share your saves and stats with the entire community, and browse other farms for inspiration.

Advantages: fast, easy to use, accessible to everyone (no modding required), and good image quality.

Disadvantages: doesn’t include all features of your farm. Your house upgrades, animals, NPCs, fruit on trees, and fires are not visible. Crops are in their basic form and chest colours are incorrect. There is clipping (the fence goes through the top of the house and some trees). You can’t take pictures of your farm at different times of day or in different weather conditions – this is only rendered at day.

Recommended if: you just need something quick to share.

Method 3: Stitching Quarters

Stardew Valley has a built-in screenshot mode (toggled by F4) which hides UI elements such as your inventory bar. Activate it, zoom out completely, walk to each corner of your farm, and take a screenshot. Every visible screen fits approximately a quarter of the farm, so you’ll get 4 images with a minor overlap. Stitch them in an image-editing program such as Photoshop. You’ll have “clones” of your character in the final image (one for each quarter), so optionally, use content-aware fill (or equivalent) to clean the image up. It’s helpful when your character is standing against a pattern, such as grass or weathered floor, so it’s an easy fix.

This is what I did when I originally posted my farm here. The resolution of the images and the amount they overlap is fixed, so just set the canvas size correctly and stick each screenshot in its respective corner. They’ll automatically merge.

Advantages: same as method 1. Night shots of the farm give you a really unique look.

Disadvantages: might be too much work for the average user. There’s a chance the stitching could be imperfect, since it’s manual. Not everyone has the requisite software or patience.

Recommended if: you want a live view, but don’t use SMAPI.

Method 4: GeDoSaTo

PCGamer wrote a detailed guide on how to use this resolution-tweaking tool. As they describe it:

Stardew Valley’s camera scales with your resolution meaning the higher the resolution is set, the more zoomed out you will be. [. ] you can crank Stardew Valley’s resolution up to 8K, making your entire farm visible [. ] and then take full-res screenshots of it.

Advantages: lets you play with the entire playable area visible.

Disadvantages: can be a pain and too much work to set up for the average user.

Recommended if: this method is basically obsolete now. Just an option for whoever wants to use it to get a live view and doesn’t want to use methods 1 and 3.

Consoles

Unfortunately, most of the above doesn’t apply to consoles, since you either need to mod, tweak settings, or access your save file. Your best bet is to take screenshots manually (Xbox instructions here | PS4 instructions here) and stitch, similar to method 3 (albeit with more images than 4 since you can’t zoom as much).

The PlayStation 5 has sold a million units in Japan within ten months, doing so faster than the PS4, which took nearly a year to hit the same number.

The PlayStation 5 has sold a million units in Japan, which it managed to do in a shorter time than the PlayStation 4. The PS4 had a slow start on the marketplace, but it went on to help PlayStation become the best-selling home console brand in 2019, with over 115 million units sold.

The PS5 has had a much greater demand at launch, which has been limited by a shortage of consoles. Despite this, the PS5 has hit a major sales milestone in Japan. According to Famitsu, the PS5 has sold one million units in Japan. Nearly 85% of those sales were of the disc version of the console. The PS5 hit this milestone in Japan faster than the PS4. As translated by Gematsu, the PS5 hit a million sales within ten months, while it took the PS4 eleven months to hit the same goal.

The demand for PS5s is expected to continue for a while, especially as the console shortage is expected to last another year. The PS5 has only had a few true exclusives, with many games also coming to PS4, including some big future titles, like Gran Turismo 7 and Horizon Forbidden West, so the arrival of more true exclusives will drive up demand even further. The PS5 still has a long way to go before it outpaces the Switch, which is currently dominating Japan. Nintendo won’t be able to hold its advantage forever, especially with the aging hardware of the Switch, and no new hardware revisions in sight, save for the visual upgrade of the Switch OLED. Time will tell if the PlayStation 5 has what it takes to claim the crown.
