Although the Day 1 “Crown Update” added the ability to share the Snapshots that Prompto took to our social media, there’s no way I’m going to share all 150 (and counting) snapshots to Facebook in one-go.
So when I was going between actually doing that and taking screenshots of the snapshots, I realized that if you do the following, you can save a copy of a snapshot to Capture Gallery without it going to your Social Media:
- Navigate to the snapshot you want to save
- Press the “Share” button
- Select “Yes” for the confirmation of “Share this photo?”
- Wait for the PS4’s Share Screenshot interface appear (just appear, you don’t have to wait for it to finish loading)
- Press the “Back” button
- That’s it! There should be a copy of the snapshot in your Capture Gallery’s FFXV folder
I’ve done this to save all the snapshots to PS4 and then delete them from the ingame album so I have more space for Prompto’s better photos (he takes a lot of crappy ones). I also did this to save snapshots before I load a save, because there are some photos that won’t be taken even if you run the exact same thing.
Remember to check your Capture Gallery to make sure you have the photo there before deleting the ingame one! Happy photographing!
