Alan Wake 2 Photo Mode Screenshots Location on PC – Answered

Your personal Mind Palace!

The first major expansion of Alan Wake 2 is out now, and the game has been updated to version 1.1.0, finally adding photo mode to the base game as well. This isn’t a simple photo mode either, and there are tons of settings to customize. If you want to access your photos, here is the Alan Wake 2 photo mode screenshots location on your PC.

Alan Wake 2 Photo Mode Screenshots Location

You can access all the photos you have taken using the photo mode in Alan Wake 2 in the following location.

C:\Users\[YOUR USERNAME]\Documents\Alan Wake 2

The Alan Wake 2 folder in Documents contains all the screenshots you take using the prompt in the overlay. I can confirm that the game doesn’t compress the screenshots either and uses the correct resolution you have selected regardless of the upscaling method.

At 1440p, some of my screenshots are around 8 MB in size, which means you’re not losing any detail either. The photo mode is feature-rich and iterates on the one found in Remedy’s last title, Control. There are tons of settings to adjust, filters to apply, frames to use, and camera options to play around with. Taking the screenshots isn’t hard either, and there’s a prompt on the keyboard to easily bring it up as well.

Having a dedicated folder for the screenshots also means you don’t need to use an overlay or third-party software for assistance, or fear compression. Additionally, you don’t need the expansion which comes in the deluxe edition to use the photo mode.

While Night Springs is a great reason to pick up the game again, I think this added feature actually warrants an entirely new playthrough.
