FYI - You can get Camera-shy during your playthrough, then during the ending, grab rest of the pics. So you don't have to play through the game twice to get both this and 'Fuzzy Pickles'. Grats to Altomar for being the first to grab this cheevo!

Need some clarification on this. I just finished the game with 0 pictures, which is by definition the fewest possible. However, I got not pop up. Is this bugged, or is the definition of the achievement wrong?

It's impossible to get through this game with zero photos without cheating.
10 Feb 20:51 2015
100% possible to finish the game photoless using only the mechanics in the game. Evidence is on my twitch past broadcast. Seeing that one achievement requires the use of a glitch already, assumed that it was not the only one.

So you're saying you glitched yourself off the map? -A-Yes, I did not account for this. I don't need to see your twitch broadcast, I know what you did. I will have to update the description, sorry.

So wait....does this acheivement require glitching now, or are the photos dubbed "unavoidable" earlier still don't count? Kinda confused.....

@ SlimKirby, No it does not require glitching. Only 3 photos are unavoidable and it's fine to get them.@cirellio I tried getting "Fuzzy Pickles" after Camera-shy but for some reason the photo in front of Daleem's throne was not triggering anymore.
6 Aug 12:38 2015
So Daleem's throne may be a problem, as well as the Brickroad Maze photo in Winters. My strategy guide was saying you could wander the world and get what photos you missed, but I guess not every photo is possible after all :/

It does require some glitching IMO. Using PSI teleport to bypass the pyramid one is a glitch.

Just copy your save before talking with dr andonuts on Saturn Valley. This way, you can finish the game with the fewest photos possible and then load your secondary save to get all the photos.

This needs more explanation. Exactly how many photos do you need to get?
3 Sep 16:25 2017
Only 3: http://walkthrough.starmen.net/earthbound/photoguide.php

No problem :D

For the Mine photo, simply go in with Sunstroke instead of waiting to be poisoned, also leave the Guardian nearest to the exit alive before trying to bypass that photo
