Taking Photos in Honkai: Star Rail

Taking a photo using the photo mode in Hoyoverse‘s latest Gacha RPG is fairly straightforward. Firstly, players should have completed the tutorial in Honkai: Star Rail to use the photo mode in-game. After this, you will be able to use the camera icon that shows in the settings to click photos both on PC and mobile devices. 

To take photos in this Hoyoverse title on your PC, select the phone icon in the top-left corner of the screen or press the Escape button. Click on the camera icon to switch to camera mode. You will see this icon on the right-side panel. Now, all that’s left to do is choose the best angle that you want to be captured and press the camera shutter button or the F key on your keyboard to take a photo. 

Players should also note that in this gacha game you can take photos in both first-person or third-person perspective. Here are some more options that are available for clicking photos in the game: 

  • Swap between the back camera and the selfie camera.

  • Customize your photos with the game logo or your UID.

  • Select and choose between different pose options or just stay idle. 

  • Choose the expression on your character’s face.

You also have the option to add filters to the photos you just clicked. You can play around with the intensity of these and it works similar to filters of social media sites like Instagram. 

On your mobile devices, these saved photos from Honkai: Star Rail will appear in your phone’s Photo Gallery. On PC, you might have a slightly difficult time locating the images. They can be found in your Honkai: Star Rail screenshots folder.

By default, it should be in: Local Disk(C:)/Program Files/Star Rail/GamesStarRail_Data/Screenshots

But note that this path might differ if you have installed the game somewhere else on your PC.
