How to Export PS4 Screenshots without any compression!

#1 Edited by BantrosBantros (8 posts) -

Hey dudes. I'm sure you've noticed that screenshots that have been "shared" on PS4 look like shit.

I just found a way to export without any compression!

Go to messages and send a picture, hit screenshot, choose your pic and send to somebody (or like a dedicated screenshot account maybe?) Go to the playstation app (mobile), go to messages and you can see the full res shot you've taken, save it to your phone and do with it as you please.

I just dropboxed mine over to my desktop :)

This could be easier if there was a way to check your messages on a PC but i'm pretty sure you can't.

Enjoy :D

It really should just have the option to export your stuff to proper imagehosts instead of FB/twitter.

@colonelrick: I agree. I do appreciate that I could share it directly to Lamebook or Tweeter, should I be so inclined (I'm not), it would be nice to have some more options here.

Why are they compressing images so much? A 1080P jpg should not be very big at all.

Would prefer actual DropBox integration in the PS4, thx.

Dedicated Twitter account.

Also, I'm now getting a PS4. There's no other option.

I look forward to your Persona 6 Renagade Photo series in 2022.

Hopefully they add more options, that sucks that you have to jump through extra hoops to avoid having shitty compressed pictures

I would really like more options here. I know they are coming in patches but this is pretty barebones so far.
