Photo Mode has allowed us all to soak in the rich detail of the game worlds we’re sometimes too busy saving to appreciate. It’s also turned us from players to photographers, pouring over the perfect composition and fine-tuning our filters for the most eye-catching shot.

In 2018, we asked you to show off your best snaps in our Share of the Week series by sharing on Twitter and Instagram using #PS4share and #PSBlog. Here are just some of our personal favorites. Or, as we like to call them, our new desktop wallpapers.

Shadow of the Colossus


We started out our Share of the Week series alongside the release of the hauntingly beautiful Shadow of the Colossus. @JerseyAnthony caught our eye with this triumphant final blow to a Colossus.

Horizon Zero Dawn


We then took a look back at some highlights from 2017 releases like Horizon Zero Dawn. Photo Mode allowed players to get up close and personal like in this portrait of Aloy from @horizonzerodawnworld.


Or this gripping attack shot from @LUCKYless11.

Assassin’s Creed Origins


@Son_of_Sekhmet went up against the Epyptian gods in this Assassin’s Creed Origins share.


@videogame_photographer shared this insanely details close-up of your eagle companion.

Gran Turismo Sport


While most fans focused on the cars, @Philt43_Yewone took a more artistic approach.

God of War


Kratos unleashes his fury in this heated share from @raffu42.


@gatirosho shared this solemn and detailed look at our favorite boy, Atreus.


The Stranger got the spotlight in this wickedly crafted share from @DobbyPS4.

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End


Over the summer we highlighted some adventurous shares from the Uncharted series, including this fiery Uncharted 4 shot, also from @DobbyPS4.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy


This colorful shot from @glenlee_92 had us ready to jump back into Uncharted: The Lost Legacy.

The Last of Us


Ellie gets caught in some haunting shadows in this moody share from @carpenoctem_art.


She gets the black and white portrait treatment in this detailed share from @Chy_Visual_Arts.

Marvel’s Spider-Man


September found us swinging into Marvel’s Spider-Man, like in this picturesque shot by @KBStation.


We loved all the selfie shots players sent us, like this swinging selfie from @JohnTambanillo.


The Vintage Suit made Spider-Man feel like he was swinging off the page of a comic, like in this share from Eazels.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey


We leapt into Ancient Greece with a magnificent shot of the Parthenon from @AreeLyBadPun.

Red Dead Redemption 2


We finished out the year with some rugged portraits from Red Dead Redemption 2, like this share from @raffu42.

Wow! That Assasin’s Creed Odissey shot should be Top 1. It’s like the perfect shot

That shot of Kratos is just unreal. Great job to everyone on this page!

(Also, please Rockstar, give us a real photo mode for Red Dead Redemption 2!)

I agree, but I think that shot of “The Stranger” is just as good!

This is as lame as being auto subscribed to ps plus and having money stolen from my bank account. assassins creed and red dead? Maybe stop pushing sucky games on us just because they are full of communist propaganda.

Honestly, I use Photo Mode and Sharefactory I lot . I really hope that Sharefactory is on the PS5. Its a great editing app. When you just want to use the Playstation.
