Hi,

 

when going onto Snapmatic on the Social Club, is there anyway to save the images in higher resolution? The ones I 'Save Image As...' are relatively small compared to the size when I took them. Is there anyway to get them in 720p/ 1080p?

 

Cheers

Nope that's it. It's half of 720p by the way. So 360p. Garbage resolution.

 

The reason being is, you are uploading these screenshots to Rockstar's servers. If they saved 1080p files for everyone, they would run out of space fast. These sh*tty 360p images take up kilobytes.

I wonder why exactly they decided to only let us save them online. If they gave us the ability to upload the lower resolution ones to Social Club as an option for sharing it would be nice, but it would also be nice to just save them to the HDD in full quality as well. Then we also wouldn't have to lose a good pic if Social Club goes down or something.

Well, you can always just get a capture card for 1080p pictures and videos and sh*t.

Very fair point, never thought of that.

 

Thanks for the reply anyway, just made do with 360p.

A larger resolution on the pictures would be awesome, but if you do some math – hundred pics per user, roughly 15 million users. That quickly nets you 150 million jpegs to juggle. So it figures that the smaller res is to ease the whole process.

 

I'm a photographer, so for me the camera lacks a few things that would elevate the whole thing to another level but hey, it's better than nothing. Or the non-functioning functioning camera in IV where you couldn't save any of the shots.

 

The 96 image cap is agonizingly small (for me) tho. I've started to just download all the shots on my comp and then clearing all of em out the Gallery. Rinse and repeat.

 

Slightly off-topic, here's a collage of GTAV shots I've taken:

It's pretty remarkable that (at least in that small resolution) some of em look like real pictures if you just glance over em. That lighting system is quite likely the finest I've seen in any game.

How do you do the download to your computer?

For the time being, I'm just saving them image by image by using "Save image as.." on my browser. It would be really cool if they added a feature to the Snapmatic portion of the site that allowed you to download all your images at once...maybe I'll flick that idea to the Mouthoff email!
