The Playstation 4 Screenshots thread

So how do I collect this nice reward?

Nice! Top 50% in the first week of playing! Congrats.

I only delivered 2T on the first night with my Sidewinder! Just to get into the top 100%! But I saw you on my friends list always in Lave, I figured you were working hard at the CG! I was rooting for you guys to get to Tier 7 so I would get an extra 100,000. I'm glad your hard work paid off for me. :cool:

Thanks! But I honestly don't know how to collect it now..... :(
 
Dock Crew waiting for touchdown! I had a cargo hold filled with algae. Dose not sound awesome but it paid 600k for one cargo run!
My new home! It is a perfect system that has everything.

You turn it in at the CG station like any other mission. However there is usually a bit of a lag between the time the CG ends and when the payout becomes claimable. If you leave it without claiming for a certain period (can't remember how long) it will be automatically be credited to you anyway.
 
Tonight's Adventures!
Hunting!
Our great monument park!
Basking in the sun!
It was a good night! Back at it tomorrow. Will purchase my real bounties hunter tomorrow and go to the CG!
 
Could someone fairly knowledgeable about this perhaps clearly explain the process by which PS4 players can take and then upload screenshots. Videos too if that's possible.

I'm actually a PC player but I want to write some instructions on the process in another thread.

Thanks in advance and much appreciated.

(Ignore the noob capture of the capture icon...)
Just finished visiting the black hole at Maia in my trusty Type-6. :)

btw: you can switch off the on screen symbol when taking a screenshot. That avoids taking a screenshot with the symbol, when you take several screenshots in short succession. I think you can find it under (Settings) > [Notifications].

And I would recommend to set the Share-Button mode to "Easy screenshot" -> on short press to take a screen.

Actually, the PS4 manual is pretty clear about that. Have a look here (and the other sub-menus for share on the left side): http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps4/share/about_share.html

Cool, thanks. So you just press and hold the Share button to take a quick screenshot? Where does that then go (e.g. if someone wanted to find that screenshot and share it here on the forum, or in an email, how would they go about that?). Really appreciate the help here, for reference I wanted to add the information over here ...

Yes, the preset is to hold the Share button, then the screenshot is saved (though I would recommend to remap the Share-button functionality to "Easy Screenshot", so that you just have to press it short: http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps4/settings/sharebutton.html), and to deactivate the screen symbol, see my post above.

Uploading/Sharing
The screenshot is saved in the capture gallery, you can access it from the main menu of the PS4 (see secon link from above). From there you can upload it to Twitter, export it to USB, post it in your actitivies or send it via a PSN message. So the common thing to do would be to upload it to twitter and then use this as a file host, or to export it via USB to your PC (I am too lazy to do that, but the quality woulde be better, as Twitter compresses the pictures). As an example my account: https://twitter.com/gamenthusiast.

Setting screenshot quality:
http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps4/settings/screenshot.html
I would recommend to set the file format to .png (instead of jpg). Increases the quality quite a lot. If you have a PS4 Pro, you can choose between 1080p and 4k resolution (but 4k png is really large, like 10MB per picture, so I would recommend to stick with 1080p).

Brilliant! Thanks very much. Rather than re-write all of that I've just referenced your post from my racing thread.
