How do I use the Buddy Photo Share feature on my Samsung Galaxy Camera?

Buddy Photo Share allows you to easily tag and share photos with your contacts. When you capture a photo with your Samsung Galaxy Camera, receive photos in messages, or download photos from other sources, your device will help you recognize faces and tag your contacts. Once you have added a contact, you can easily share the photos with the tagged contacts. When you regularly use Buddy Photo Share to tag photos, your device will learn to automatically recognize your contacts in your photos.

Using Buddy Photo Share When Capturing Photos

You can tag photos when you capture them right from the camera app.

  1. With the camera app open, touch > Share > Buddy photo share.
  2. Aim the camera at the subject and partially depress the Shutter button until the focal point turns green. Alternatively, you can touch the screen to focus on a specific area. When the focal point turns green, press and hold the camera shutter button. Your camera will also note any other faces recognized in the photo.
  3. You will be shown the Buddy photo share review screen.
  4. Your device will recognize any faces in the picture and mark them with a yellow box.



  5. Touch the yellow box, and then touch Add name.



  6. Select the contact you want to tag in the picture. A tag box now appears with a button allowing you to share the picture with the contact. The sharing option will vary based on the options available in the contact's information. If you touch Send, the picture will be sent to everyone who is tagged.



Tagging and Sending a Picture
