Galaxy S8 And Galaxy S8 Plus: How To Take Panoramic Pictures
It’s common by now for people to use their smartphone cameras on a day-to-day basis. After all, why wouldn’t you when you have a relatively decent digital camera in your pocket all day, every day? But do you ever feel like your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus Camera app can’t really capture an event in its entire glory? Is the sight before you just too big to fit into your Camera app’s frame? Do you wish you could have caught more on your lens from one snapshot? What you’re secretly dreaming of is actually a panoramic photo, and your smartphone actually includes this shooting mode. What it does is stitch several images together, composing a wider view of the same subject.
Does that sound cool? Of course it does, because it is. And if you want to take panoramic pictures with your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus Camera app, all you have to do is to follow some simple steps:
