Standing next to the dishwasher when I select "Simstagram Pet" so of course the photo frame is inside the dishwasher. You can see the slider is zoomed all the way out too. In a more open area, it's just the Sim's legs.

@Apeanutbutterzol Does this happen to you for all pets or just kitten/puppies ? For me it seems to work fine for my adult cat but not the kitten.

I just have a couple hair mods so I didn't bother. But I will go ahead and try anyway. I'll report back.

sims 4 simstagram pet 3 no mods or cc.jpgsims 4 simstagram pet 4 no mods or cc.jpgsims 4 simstagram pet 5 no mods or cc.jpgStill does the same thing with no mods/cc. I guess it is just a weird mechanic. I guess you just have to time it right? Which is kinda hard to do. But other people's pet Simstagram pics look so good!

Ohhh yeah, I gave up on simstagramming pets long ago 'cuz I've had this problem since the very first time I tried it.  Photo is usually of human legs, furniture...seldom the pet.  Kudos to the OP for filling out a bug-report!  Sorry to say it never occurred to me; just figured it was badly programmed.

@Tiarella4 Same, I've always had this problem, so it never occurred to me to submit a bug report. I've never been able to simstagram a pet, because I get walls, legs, etc, everything but the pet.

The issue is that the photo angle seems from pretty much random direction instead of being from the PoV of the sim taking the picture. I believe it would help to fix the bug if it was changed to happen from the Sim's PoV instead of some random place, often from completely different direction.
