  • Go to AR Zone on your Samsung phone.
  • Click AR emoji stickers.
  • You can here, create your stickers.

Take quick videos

Using the Samsung camera app is very easy. You just have to open the app and select what features or mode you want to use. The two most common feature we use is capturing pictures and videos.

We do not have to select any mode to click photos, it’s set by default. Meanwhile, you can capture quick videos through the camera mode itself. To do this:

  • Touch and hold the shutter button in Photo mode.
  • Drag your finger to the Lock icon to continue recording without having a hold down the button.

Capture moments in burst shots or GIFs

You can capture a series of images or soundless videos that will loop continuously also known as GIF, from your Samsung phone’s camera itself. To do this: Go to Camera settings and choose whether swiping takes a burst shot or GIF.

  • Open the Camera app.
  • Swipe the Shutter button away from the preview.
  • Drop the button when finished.

Keep the Shutter button within reach

Smartphones now come with very big screens, take Galaxy S22 Ultra as an example. This makes it a bit difficult to click photos, especially selfies, on a large screen phone.

Samsung allows you to move the Shutter button anywhere on the screen so you can reach it with either hand. You can hide it when you don’t need it. To do this: Tap the camera shutter button and move it anywhere on the screen.

Crop your videos

There are some parts in the video which we do not like or they are spoiling the look of the rest of the video. Samsung gives you the ability to crop videos without having to use any external editing tools.

To crop your videos, change the aspect ratio >> crop out unwanted parts >> adjust the tilt, and it’s done.

Save and revert edited images

When you save an edited image, it replaces the original image in the Gallery. What if you want the original image back? Don’t worry, Samsung has a solution for this as well.

No matter how many times you’ve saved an image, you can always tap Revert to undo everything and get the original image back. But, if you want to keep both – the original and the edited, you can tap Save and copy through the More options menu.

Make highlight reels easily

The best parts of the selected videos will be collected in a single highlight reel that’s ready to share. To do this:

  • Select the videos you want to include.
