[Android™ 4.4, KitKat] How do I use the Best Photo, Beauty Face, and Best Face features on my Samsung Galaxy S® 4?

Your device supports picture capture modes called Best Photo, Best Face, and Beauty Face, which help you capture better photos

  • Best Photo

    The Best photo option captures eight photos and selects the best one. To turn the Best photo feature on, with the camera application open, touch Mode  and then touch the Best photo thumbnail.

    You may see a message letting you know that best photos will be stored on your device's internal memory; touch OK. Aim your device at the scene or subject and touch the screen to focus on a specific area of the scene. When the focal point turns green, touch and hold the camera shutter button. Your device will capture eight photos in quick succession. You will be taken to a review screen, and you will be shown the best photo first. Swipe left or right to scroll through the additional photos. Touch and hold a thumbnail to add shots to the Best photo list. Selected photos will appear with a thumbs-up icon. When you have marked all of the Best shots, touch Save to keep those photos and discard the rest.

    Note: Best photos will continue to be saved to your device's internal memory even if you have installed an optional external microSD™ card, and have set the camera to use the microSD card for storage.
