To access Photo Mode, press the N key if you're using a keyboard or press both analog sticks on a controller. You can work around the Photo Mode in many ways, as there are 5 main tabs for editing and lots of slides to adjust and many options to choose from.


In the Camera tab, you have the option to adjust the following:

Preset You can either choose a preset from the game or use Customization to adjust everything.
Field of View This determines the extent of the scene the camera will take a photo of.
Rotate Adjustable by value and determines how rotated the entire photo looks. As of Patch 1.6, the rotation can go up to 90 degrees both ways, allowing for vertical shots.

In Depth of Field, you can determine how in focus or out of focus you character will appear by adjusting the following:

Mode Description
Enabled You can toggle this on/off.
Auto Focus You can toggle this on/off.
Aperture Higher aperture puts everything in focus. Lower aperture puts focus on your character.
