Online Ranking systems are also included among the features where you can see how good your photography skills are compared to other players around the world!

The first ranking system that you can find online is based on your Total Photodex Score or the total photo score of all the registered snaps in your Photodex.

The last two online ranking systems are Total Course Score and individual Course Scores, both unlocked after beating the main story. These are determined by how many quality snaps you can take in a single run of a course.
