I haven't run 5 in forever but I do remember they liked to overpose more in 5 than 4. The majority of petz players run 4 and I find it pretty easy to pose them there.
The key is training I think. If they do the pose behaviour, regardless of whether they're in a good pose or not, start praising. Treats, pets, whatever quick reward. I usually do petting and get in there for the butt wiggles from dogz. Then I 'reset' them by picking them up and start snapping again. Once they get the idea that camera means to puff up like an idiot and pose, then I actually start doing attempts for actual show photos. Some dogz can take me an hour! I'm usually screaming inside at that point going "WHY WONT YOU POSE YOU !#@$ DOG" but I *usually* get my poses. If a dog is being a pain in the butt, some people do posing services or you can try that particular pet another day - sometimes they're just not in the mood XD
When posing, I find it's easiest to just hold down the space bar and have the pictures auto-save. That way once they've finally posed, you can go through the pics and find when they're at perfect alignment.
The problem with that method in Petz 5 is that after you take even just one picture, they IMMEDIATELY stop and look surprised. You just can't use that method. You basically have just one shot to get the perfect alignment. I was able to do it with catz to some extent, but with dogz I found it pretty much impossible.
So for that reason, I'd suggest doing your posing in 4. That was actually one of the biggest draws of Petflux for me--I could finally show my dogz who had been stuck in 5 up until then!

Thor: Oh no I have 44 profile notifications now-- I found a method to my showing madness but it makes notifications like crazy! I wonder if there's a way to turn off certain ones in settings haha

Arie: Thor, it should be possible to disable notifications per (sub)board! I know I've done it before.

Ratqueen: moonkiddo, please post your Petz questions in the Petz Talk & Help board. Also read the rules to use the Shoutbox (this is not a chatroom, as it's very limited and only shows 20 posts).

Alex@Marvel: So I decided after (I don't even know how many) years of Gotham being my prefix, it's now Marvel. ^^ I felt like it was time for a rebranding.

Gray Dragoness: I really wish eyelids were based on the main coat color... or just all black, either would work for me

Alex@Marvel: I don't forsee me ever going away from my Sammies, Thor, but I am still searching for the right cat breed so technically yes?

Cherry-Spot: Oooo rebrandings are cool
