Exporting PS4 screenshots without Facebook or Twitter

posted in: Editorials & Features | 1

We all wish new consoles, operating systems and other pieces of software debuted with all the features of its predecessors.

The PlayStation 4 (with firmware 1.5) may allow you to share photos to Twitter and Facebook but what if you wanted to just export those screenshots without signing up to a social network or without having social networks mangle them?

Unfortunately there’s no easy way to export screenshots to a USB stick and thus a workaround is required. You can send the raw screenshots to a PSN friend as an attachment and then have a friend (or dummy account) retrieve those attachments via the PlayStation App.

  • My brother sent me a test screenshot and I retrieved it on the PlayStation App
  • I saved the photo onto my iPad which then automatically placed it into my Photo Stream so I could retrieve it on my Macbook Air

It’s a long and inconvenient process but if you intend on bypassing both Facebook or Twitter, this is one way to do it.

    It is desirable to not upload to FB or Twitter, because they compress the image
