Photo mode has been a brilliant addition to modern games, effectively turning every player into a mini marketing tool. You've probably seen countless Spider-Man 2 players showing off their dynamic poses and flashy costumes, but if you're wondering how to get in on the fun, this guide will tell you how to use photo mode in Spider-Man 2.

Insomniac Games' highly-rated sequel is one that takes full advantage of the PS5's graphical fidelity, and it begs to be captured and shown off. You could just press the 'share' button when the feeling takes you, but for some really impressive pictures, poses, and image editing options, photo mode is where it's at.

Before you jump into the photography session, make sure your Spidey is suitably powerful with our guide to getting XP fast. We can also help you skip puzzles, and there's plenty more where that came from in our walkthrough hub.

How to access photo mode in Spider-Man 2

To access photo mode in Spider-Man 2, you'll need to pause the game and scroll down to 'photo mode'. The camera controls you get may be limited if you're in the middle of a cutscene, but photo mode can be accessed more or less at any time.

There are plenty of new tools and traversal options to capture on camera.

With the mode open, you'll have a bunch of options - poses, lighting, camera position and more to set up the perfect shot. It's not uncommon to see Sony or Insomniac themselves reposting fan-submitted pictures, so be sure to save any of your most impressive snaps for a chance at the spotlight.

Insomniac has publicly requested that players avoid sharing spoilers, so while you may be tempted to pull a Tom Holland and post pictures of Spidey dabbing during an important plot moment, try not to ruin the big surprises for anyone.

That's everything you need to know about Spider-Man 2's photo mode! While you're here, check out our guide to crouching and performing finishers to set up some perfect photo opportunities.
