How to set up photo capture outside of the frame

Turning on these settings will permit you to catch photos with different cameras. For example, on the off chance that you snap a picture with the standard wide camera, yet need to zoom that picture out a piece, you can, on the grounds that the ultra-wide will have additionally taken that picture simultaneously.

  • Open Settings on your iPhone.
  • Select Camera.
  • Tap the switches next to Photos Capture Outside the Frame and Videos Capture Outside the Frame to turn on the ability to capture images and videos outside of your current frame.
  • Then Tap the switch next to Auto Apply Adjustments for composition adjustments to be applied to your images automatically.

A few notes about this feature. To begin with, capturing photos and videos outside of your present frame expects you to utilize Apple’s HEIC and HEVC image and video formats rather than JPG. Second, when you catch outside of your frame, you have 30 days to utilize the image caught outside of the frame to make adjustments before the additional information is erased. The first image that you take will stay flawless.

Edit images with data from outside the frame

We have found that this feature can behave a little inconsistently. It works best after you’ve given your image a little time to process, so it’s best done in the Photos app.

  • Open Photos on your iPhone.
  • Tap the photo you’ve taken.
  • Then Tap Edit. If there is data from outside of the frame with which you can edit, you’ll see a rangefinder icon with a star.
  • Tap the crop button.
  • Pinch in on the image to zoom out to as much of the ultra-wide view as you want.
  • Tap Done.

Switch between close and wide-angle selfies

  • Open Camera on your iPhone.
  • Tap the perspective flip button to activate the front-facing camera.
  • Tap the arrows button to manually switch between close and wide-angle selfies.
  • Rotate your iPhone to one side to automatically switch to wide-angle selfies.

Take a slomo selfie

  • Open Camera on your iPhone.
  • Tap the perspective flip button to activate the front-facing camera.
  • Swipe the mode dial to the right until you’re on Slo-mo.
  • Take your slomo selfie
