Use these cute pet poses for the best animal photos around!
With the prevalence of digital cameras thanks to mobile phones, people can take photos pretty much anywhere, anytime. Pets are a common subject of these photos, and may even be the most popular thing to photograph nowadays! In fact, if you have the Cats and Dogs Expansion and click on any pet, one of the options you’ll get is “Simstagram Pet” which allows your sim to snap a pic and upload it to The Sims 4’s version of the popular social media website. It just goes to show you that pet photography it a common human experience.
On the downside though, options to photograph pets in the game aren’t great. When you try to Simtagram a pet you’re limited to whatever pose they’re in and angle your sim is at, which makes it difficult to get a good photo. Luckily we can take advantage of poses just like we can do with human sims, and use the regular “Take Photo” option from your sim’s phone to get a better shot. Now we just need to install some poses to use!
