Insomniac Games’ Spider-Man for PlayStation 4 will include an impressive array of screenshot editing features that would make Peter Parker proud. In a new trailer focused on Marvel’s Spider-Man’s photo mode, we get an extensive look at what Insomniac has planned, including the ability to make your own custom comic book covers.

The trailer speeds through the game’s myriad photo mode features, which include many options we’ve come to expect: field of view, focus, aperture, color filters, vignettes, film grain, stickers. Spider-Man’s photo mode also features plenty of selfie options, including selfie-specific lighting and emotes that alter the eyes on ol’ Spidey’s costume.

Using a variety of frames, players can also make their own comic book panels, billboards, and Daily Bugle and Amazing Spider-Man covers. There are some fun stickers that let screenshot takers add “thwip!” sound effects, wheatcakes and the classic Marvel Comics Group cover badge.

According to the trailer, Spider-Man’s photo mode will be added to the PS4 game as part of a day-one update.

Marvel’s Spider-Man hits PS4 on Sept. 7.
