Yup, unfortunately that's the only format the PS4 saves screenshots in and you're taking these screenshots using the Share button (after having set them up with the photo mode's options). Totally wish the system would allow you to save screenshots with less compression - though I'm mostly okay with the size it does save them at (and thankfully you can copy them to a USB stick now, as opposed to having to deal with twitter/facebook's extra compression or the PSN App messaging work-around).

Edit: just realised the site is compressing/resizing these screenshots down from their original size - has that always been the case? I thought we could upload 1080p shots without an issue.

Now I know I should be escorting this little girl to safety, but that world is just too crammed with things worth (more or less) taking a picture of. So many in fact that I have to force myself to just progress the game from time to time.

Seriously, I swear you used to be able to upload 1920x1080 size images and then view them at full size. Am I missing something? Whenever I click for a larger view I'm stuck with the resized image blown-up and looking awful.

Fiddling now and this seems to be negated by right clicking and selecting "open link in new tab", which opens the image at its original, full, size in a seperate tab (though it's not doing so for my original post, odd. >.<)

Don't mind me, testing with a previous upload:

And with a fresh upload:

Edit: can't seem to access the original resolution image with the previous upload, but can with that new one by opening the link in a new tab. Odd.

Edit 2: I can still access the original resolution of my previous uploads from my profile's image gallery. The site's gallery view feature seems to be broken, though? Is it just me or does clicking on an image simply result in the smaller image being blown up? When looking through this thread's images in gallery mode they're all suffering this problem.

Feel like (and probably read like) I'm taking crazy pills. :P

No, I'm pretty sure it's been this way for a while. I think it's related to eliminating transparencies in raw uploads (but not when you post them to the forums, if that makes any sense). Long story short: the engineers want to cut down on large-ass image file sizes.

I WANT FUTURE TANK TO BE A REAL MOVIE SO BAD. They should make that instead of making an actual adaption of this game, starring Arya Stark as the titular Future Tank.

These are cool but I wish people would just post these in the PS4 Share thread. Keep it going like the PC screenshot thread. Especially now with a couple of games have specific photo modes that make you want to take photos.

Oh, wasn't aware such a thread existed (or had forgot about it)! Will spam that then, hopefully it'll be sticky'd at some point.

Also Hair Trigger looks to be based on Transporter poster for whatever reason. Guess someone over at ND likes them!

I guess that shows how often I actually use the feature. Bummer, though, kind of feel like that kills a big part of what was good about a great feature when the site was new.

Didn't realise we had one, considering we don't get quite so many posts you're right, stuff like this and InFamous would probably go better in a more general thread.

I remember having a ton of fun with the machinima mode in uncharted 2's multiplayer mode. It's cool that they included this.

Well I decided to start my fifth playthrough of the game today. This time on the highest difficulty, grounded, but I didn't get very far since I started to mess around with the photo mode.
