Are you ready to blow us away with your shots in this contest? Unsure about your /gpose skills? The next few tips include the basics to get you started:

1. Do you want to capture an emote, action or ability in the picture?
The gpose mode automatically repeats the last emote/ability/action you’ve commenced. So, before typing /gpose into the chat window, execute the emote/ability/action you want to be captured.

2. Entering the /gpose mode
There are a couple of ways you can enter the group pose mode, but the fastest way is by typing /gpose (or /grouppose) in the chat window.

3. Opening the /gpose settings
Keyboard: hit [R] or[*] on the numerical keyboard
Gamepad:
PS4: [□]
ABXY pad: [X]

4. Controlling the camera
Keyboard: you can move the camera with the WASD keys, and use the Q and E keys to tilt the camera.
You can zoom in/out as you normally would on your character using the mouse wheel or Page Up/Down keys, but you can zoom further in or out by adjusting the Angle of View Settings under the General Settings.
Gamepad: you can move the camera with the left stick whereas the right stick rotates and tilts the camera. If you want to zoom further in or out, you can do that by adjusting the Angle of View Settings under the General Settings.

5. Freezing the Characters
While in group pose mode, you and your fellow party members will repeat the last used action.
Keyboard: Press the [1] key to disable/enable all motions, or press [2] key to disable/enable motion on the target.
Gamepad: Press [LT/L2] button on the gamepad to disable/enable all motions, or [RT/R2] button to disable/enable motion on the target.

You can cycle through your party members (as well as your companions, mounts, and even minions) by hitting the tab key.

6. Lights, Lights, Lights!
Is it too dark and just a little bit of light would make the perfect image? Group pose setting has light sources available!
Under the Lighting Settings you can place up to three light sources. The light source will be place where the camera is currently located at, so move that camera around to find the best place to leave the light source! You can then adjust the strength of the lighting by changing the type of lighting, as well as changing the colour of the light source.

7. Filters, Effects, and more!
Now you know all the basics and it’s time to level up your photography game with all the cool effects!
Colour filters, screen effects, depth of field, and limb darkening can be found inside the General Settings section and frames can be found inside the Effect/Motion/Subject Settings.
Be sure to try out different combinations as they can produce some amazing screenshots!

8. Taking the image
