Last Update Date : May 16. 2018

Edit Photos

The "edit photos" feature provides basic editing functions for photos you take with your mobile device. Along with basic photo tuning like brightness, contrast, and color, it also provides a wide variety of photo-editing effects.

From the Home screen, touch Apps 1 > Gallery 2 and open a photo. Press Menu 3 > Edit 4 to edit the photo. Touch and hold the screen, and touch Selection mode to select an area.

The following options are available:

5 Rotate: Rotate the photo. 6 Crop: Select parts of the photo to trim.
7 Color: Add color enhancements to the photo. 8 Effect: Add various stylize effects to the photo.
9 Portrait: Adjust the photo using tools such as Red-eye fix or Spot healing. 10 Sticker: Add decorations, such as clip art, or drawings to the photo.
11 Drawing: Draw on the photo using a wide range of pen settings. 12 Frame: Add a decorative frame around the photo.

Touch Save13 at the top of the screen to save your changes. A new file will be created, and the original file will be left untouched.
