How can I zoom in and out when taking a photograph on my Samsung smartphone or tablet?

Open the camera and view the thing you wish to photograph.

Place two fingers together on the screen and slowly spread them outwards to zoom in, or pinch them together to zoom in.

If you are having trouble zooming in or out, it may be that the camera is already at the maximum or minimum zoom.

If you are still having difficulty, turn your device off and then on again, then check for software updates as these are released regularly to solve issues and security problems. You can check for updates by going to Settings then About Device
