Take pictures of your creatures and island and save or share them. When you find a new animal for the first time, first exit raining mode if you are in it, tap on the creature and a picture will automatically be taken with the caption “NEW SPECIES [species] DESERTOPIA [date]”. This picture will appear in your field guide as the animal’s cover photo. If you want to take more pictures of that animal later, go into your camera window, tap the creature (when the camera starts tracking it, a tiny white animal head appears to the left of your frame), and snap a photo when you are ready.
The photo will automatically be saved to the animal’s field guide entry unless you overwrite it with the retake button. You can hop directly to that entry with the “View Field” button. You can also share the photo or save it to your device using the “Share” button.
Note: If you delete the app from your device, and then restore it, you may lose your field guide photo album pictures even if you were using cloud storage. It seems the pictures are stored locally and don’t come back when you restore.
