For those that appreciate the rather stunning visuals seen in Bethesda Game Studios’ Starfield, photo mode is only a button press away. If you’re eager to frame your gameplay through a series of curated and posed screenshots, then read on – this is how to use photo mode in Starfield.

How To Find Photo Mode in Starfield

It couldn’t be easier to open up the photo mode feature in Starfield – in fact, there are two ways to do so. If you’re on foot, the easiest way to do it is to open your hand scanner (LB on Xbox, F on PC) and simply follow that up with a tap of R3 on Xbox or V if you’re on PC.

Then, you’ll be presented with a paused game and all the mechanics of photo mode. Here, you’ll be able to tweak the field of view, and depth of field, apply filters, frames, and pose your character – or remove them entirely. It’s a fairly versatile photo mode, even if it’s not the best on the market.

There’s a second way to find photo mode, and it involves simply bringing up the game’s menu – which is the Menu button on Xbox or TAB on PC – and then clicking the button named ‘Photo Mode’ – and that’s it!

If you’re capturing a screenshot, you can remove the HUD and press whatever button you’ve bound for that command, but otherwise, any picture you snap will be saved locally in the photo gallery found in the game’s main menu.

Happy snapping!
