As if there wasn’t enough to know from Part 1, you guessed it we have a new load of how to tips on iPhone camera. Buckle up because you’re going to be blown away! If you haven’t already read the first part of this (how to photo tips on iPhone camera -part 1) we highly suggest doing so, so that you are not out of the loop with anything we’ve talked about so far. We will start this tip by beginning as if we’ve already chosen the photo we want (again please see how to photo tips on iPhone camera -Part 1 to know how to do this).
After selecting a photo from your album (we suggest choosing a photo to play around with that you don’t mind discarding when you’re done just in case!) Click the ‘Edit’ button on the top right hand side of the photo. You will see 4 small icons appear on the bottom of the screen. As always if you change your mind about editing a photo simpley tap the ‘Cancel’ button on the top right at any time.
The first small icon on the bottom right, is an arrow that looks like it’s facing up and to the left. It is the ‘Rotate’ button. By clicking this icon, you can move your photo into an up, down, left, or right facing position. Usually this is a great feature for when your drunk girlfriend decided to take pictures with your iPhone upside down. This ‘rotate’ button allows you to align the photo as if it was taken at a normal angle.
Next to that you will see an icon that looks like a little magic wand – this is the ‘Auto Enhance’ button. The ‘Auto enhance’ option can be turned on and off by tapping and retapping the icon. What this nifty little feature does is brighten your photo so that the picture quality has even tones. Try it, you will see a difference in the picture from when the ‘auto enhancer’ is on and when it is off.
Now get a load of this next icon, ‘Red Eye Remover’ – how cool is that? You don’t need that certain pen to remove red eye for these photos nor do you need to pay an expensive photographer to remove the red eye. When you click this icon for ‘Red Eye Remover’ it tells you to tap each red – eye, if it found something to correct it will ask to confirm by showing the difference and if you don’t like it just tap it again to undo. If it does not find any red- eye to correct then you know there was no red eye to remove in that photo. Uncanny that the iPhone would be able to detect that there is/isn’t red-eye in a photo, much less fix the red eye!
The last icon is a ‘Crop’ option. You can start using cropping by using the ‘Pinch’ feature as you well know it is exclusive to touch screen phones such as iPhone and Androids, and is done by putting your thumb and pointer finger on the screen and spreading them apart while on the screen. So when you have pinched the picture to the exact zoom of focus or the particular object you want to focus on in the picture, tap the ‘constrain’ button. Once you do that, you will see a mini ‘grid’ appear and there will be photo size options for you to choose from ie. 4×6, 5×7, 8×10, etc. Once you’ve selected the size you want your photo to be cropped to, on the top right is a yellow button that says ‘crop’.Tap the ‘crop’ button and then tap ‘save’. Once it is saved it will be the size you cropped it to. (Unless you take a snapshot of the screen first -please see our tip on how to take a snapshot of iPhone screen for how to do this.) If you’ve chosen a larger size, you will not see it as large as it is, ie. 8×10 unless you print it out or email it to someone, or save it on iCloud and view it on an actual computer. Good Luck & Enjoy 🙂
