How to take screenshots in The Sims 4

In the course of the lives of our characters there is always a moment that we want to capture to remember and share with our colleagues. However, not all players know how to take screenshots in The Sims 4 in the correct and simple way.

If you are looking for a way to do it, you do not have to worry, we have prepared a complete guide of The Sims 4 that tells you step by step how to do it and what are all the options to achieve it. Next, we leave you all the information.

Take in-game screenshots

The Sims 4 has its own camera with which you can capture. However, keep in mind that you cannot capture the options that appear in windows, such as the Rewards Store, Menu, Map and others. To be able to do them, you must press the indicated button of the platform on which you are playing.

Captures on PC

All you have to do to take a screenshot is press "C" on the keyboard and click Save Image. This will be done immediately and will even capture the game interface, but you can remove it by activating the Free Camera with the «Tab» key. This will allow you to have free and better positioned photographs on your Sims. You should also take into account the following buttons:

  • W, A, S, D, Q and E: used to move and rotate the camera.
  • Z and X: work to zoom in or out.
