How to get clearer CAS screenshots?

My cas screenshots always seem to come out very pixelated when I take screenshots of the sims' whole body. Help please?

    @MrMonty96 If Your computer can handle it, You also might want to try bumping up "Edge Smoothing" as high as it can go.

    Why do you have both uncompressed textures and laptop mode on? These two settings are more-or-less functional opposites.

    I think it is normal for CAS:

    Graphics settings is why it isn't crisp. If your computer can handle it, put it on ultra and take off laptop mode.

    I don't think it's how the game is. My CAS pictures turn out pretty good.

    I have everything on highest and a very powerful machine but my full-body CAS screenshots always look a big jagged around the Sim, too, but that might be because my screen is very big.

    Sims 4 isn't completely rounded. Their jaws, chins, shoulders, etc, all have pointy areas. But you can still get pretty smooth looking pictures in cas. I have a good pc and play on a large screen with a large resolution and mine aren't jagged beyond what the game has and they're not blurry at all as the OP's is.

    You can see in this picture, around the shoulders and jaw is a bit of pointy area, but it's still smooth and not jagged.

    Okay, to answer your question, you have to put the display type to "fullscreen", not even "windowed fullscreen". That would solve the jagged edges on your sims. Hope this helps! :)

    I play on ultra, no laptop mode, and I too notice a distinct difference between screenshots of the face and the body in CAS.
    For example this image of Elaine - the only thing I did was combine the two screenshots into one:
    tumblr_or3efsNj0N1v8k7elo7_1280.jpg
    While the facial image looks good, the full body screenshot looks more grainy.
    Oddly enough I don't notice this difference when I'm working in CAS.

    One explanation could be, that when zooming in on the face Sims stand completely still, whereas they always move about a bit when zoomed out to full body.

    Thanks for the help everyone, I have changed my graphics settings slightly so my screenshots are looking better now. I think there's also a certian setting that affects it too because my screenshots were never that blurry.
