How to Snap Photos in Honkai Star Rail

When you play a game you enjoy, there are tons of ways to show it. Some people make videos, while others create artwork. However, many of us use a classic, tried and true method of expressing appreciation: taking hundreds of screenshots! I’ve done it, you’ve probably done it, we all do it. How does one do it in HSR, though? That’s what we’re here to talk about! If you want to learn more, continue reading to discover how to take pictures in Honkai: Star Rail, including how to snap photos during the Road to Revival quest.

How to Take Pictures in Honkai: Star Rail

Even before encountering the Road to Revival adventure mission, you can still access your camera and take fun pictures! Below is a step-by-step guide to taking photos in Honkai: Star Rail:

  1. Head into your main menu where your character name, Trailblaze level and game options are.
  2. Click or tap on the camera icon below the settings gear.
  3. Take a picture by tapping the white camera button or pressing F if you’re on PC.

Alongside taking pictures and rotating your camera, you can also head into your camera settings by tapping the three lines icon in the top corner of your screen. Here, you’ll find options to hide your character, perform idle actions or even change your character’s expression. If you’re here to get creative and have fun with it, that’ll be your go-to.

Once you take your pictures, you can find them by heading into Local Disk (C:) > Program Files > Star Rail > Games > StarRail_Data > ScreenShots. Just be careful; they might be in another spot if you downloaded the game to a different disk drive or moved your game files elsewhere.
