Camera technology on mobile devices is now taking over the need for a separate camera. Whether you have an Android or Apple phone or tablet, there are some easy tools that can help make your photos even more professional looking.
On Apple, prior to photo taking, you can select your effect and select a photo size from square to normal rectangle. Once you have taken the photo, you can crop out unnecessary detail, you can take panoramic shots, and you can enhance the colour or add effects to give a different view on your photo. You can also adjust the light and shadows on a photo to highlight or lighten certain areas.
On Android, before you take a photo you can adjust the white balance, select where you want the camera to focus and enhance the exposure. You also have a function to take a 360° view of the world and that’s before the photo has even been taken! After you have the photo, you can add a frame, adjust the exposure and colours. There is also the function to crop the image or add filters.
On both technologies, there are many camera apps offering much more extensive photo editing features including red eye reduction and further filters. Plus, on both, you are able to upload directly to social media or send via email. Camera phones and tablets really have come a long way in a short space of time, and are the go-to device for landscape shots to a sneaky selfie with a spotted celebrity!
