How do I use the Photo Mode settings for better photos?
See the Forzatography forum for tips from other community members and be sure to keep an eye on the official contest winners in the Gallery (website and Forza Hub) and the Forza Week in Review to see examples of good composition and effects.
Can I position the car or delete the driver in Photo Mode?
These aren't options in Photo Mode - time and car position is frozen. You may be able to capture a screenshot in Drone Mode, which allows time, weather, and traffic to continue.
Storefront is the place where players can show off their latest creations – including liveries, tuning setups, photos, and custom vinyl creations. You can easily follow someone whose Storefront creations you like, and you’ll be informed each time they create something new. Best of all, Auction House and Storefront features will work seamlessly across both Xbox One and Windows 10.
How can I download my in-game photos?
- Method 1: Using a computer browser, find your saved photos in the GALLERY dropdown under the COMMUNITY menu on www.forzamotorsport.net and save them to your computer; this is also available in the Forza Hub app on Windows 10 PC.
- Method 2: Take an Xbox One Screenshot (below) while in Photo Mode with UI hidden or while viewing a photo in the in-game Forza Gallery menu (not available while streaming).
- Method 3: Stream your game to Windows 10 using the Xbox app and take a screenshot from your device.
Xbox One Screenshot
See the Xbox Support topic on capturing and sharing screenshots. Double-tap the Xbox One controller power button and press Y to save the image or say "Xbox, take a screenshot." Use the Upload app to manage saved screenshots from My Captures, where you can set the image as your console background or share it to your activity feed, in a message, to Twitter, or to your OneDrive. See the March 2015 announcement for a quick video tutorial. Screenshot is not available while streaming.
Xbox App streaming video screenshot
When streaming to your Windows 10 Xbox App you can use the keyboard combination CTRL + Print Screen to capture the current display from your monitor and then use an image editor to paste and trim the capture.
How do I post photos in the forums?
Start by saving your photo to a hosting site such as Flickr or Imgur. Click the Post Reply button in a forum thread and use the Insert Image icon or use bracketed url= and /url coding and enter the url for the image itself (.jpg or .png, not a webpage). The site will automatically resize large pictures to 800px wide. See the How to upload a photo thread for detailed instructions.
Official photos and wallpapers
You can find official wallpapers at Xbox.com and the images that accompany official Forza articles can be found at http://news.xbox.com/media.
