Take and Edit Photos on Smartphones and Tablets – Open Day 2017 Presentation

For many of us, smartphones have even become our main camera, making photo quality a priority when selecting a smartphone.

Before taking photos:
  • Keep your camera still by steadying your elbows on something solid.
  • Make sure the lens is clean.
  • Tap on the part of the image you want in focus.
  • Grid: The iPhone can display a rule of thirds grid on the screen to help you compose your photo.
  • HDR (High Dynamic Range): This mode helps you capture more detail in the shadows and highlights of your photos.
  • Flash: Many smartphones have a flash to help you take low-light photos.
  • Front-facing camera: This allows you to take a photo of yourself or to use Skype, since you can see the screen while you’re taking the photo.
Take and edit photos:
  • with your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch

An advantage of storing files in iBooks is that you don’t need an internet connection to open them.  However the links within the document are active only when you can access the internet.
