There are 60 achievements[1] (61 trophies)[2] that can be earned in Life is Strange, all of which involve taking optional photos and finishing an episode. There is one platinum trophy in all three games that is exclusive to PlayStation consoles.

All achievements that are awarded for taking optional photos refer to photography terms.
