How to take portraits using Live focus feature in Galaxy Note8?

Last Update date : Sep 16. 2020

The Live focus feature allows the camera to capture the subject and the background separately so that you can get an out-of-focus photo with the focus on the subject. Adjust the background blur effect on the preview screen and take a photo that highlights the subject.

 

Navigate to Camera → LIVE FOCUS → Focus → Capture → ADJUST BACKGROUND BLUR → SAVE 

 

Pictorial representation of the above settings are as follows :  

 
1. From the Apps list, tap Camera.

2. On the preview screen, tap LIVE FOCUS to use the Live focus feature.
