Galaxy Alpha: How do I use the Shot and more feature on my Samsung Galaxy Alpha?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Shot & More



Your device supports multiple photo shooting modes within one function called Shot & more. After you capture a photo, any modes that apply to the subject will display as options. You can apply these options immediately after capturing the photo, or you can access them in edit mode.

NOTE: When you touch 1 to switch between the front and back cameras on your device, Shot & more will switch to Beauty face mode.

Turning On Shot & More

To turn on Shot & more, from the Camera 1 application, touch 1 and then touch the Shot & more thumbnail.


Aim your device at the scene, and touch the screen to focus on a specific area. When the focal point turns green, touch  1 to capture the photo.


You will be taken to a review screen. The modes available to you may vary based on the photo content. There are five possible options:

    • 1 Best photo: Captures eight photos and selects the best one.

    • 1 Best face: Lets you capture five photos and select the best face for each of the subjects.

    • 1 Drama shot: Lets you capture a series of photos of a moving subject and merge them into one photo.

    • 1 Eraser: Lets you capture five photos of a scene and erase unwanted moving objects, such as passersby.

    • 1 Panning shot: Lets you capture wide photos.


NOTE: Drama shot, Eraser, and Panning shot are only available when using the back camera. Best photo and Best face are available when using the front-facing or back camera.
