Galaxy S8 And Galaxy S8 Plus: How To Take Panoramic Photos

The simplest definition of the word “panoramic”, which, by the way, refers to a view or a picture, is “a wide view surrounding the observer, sweeping”. Therefore, the Panoramic Photos option on Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+ Plus does just that – offers you the chance to capture a photo with a wider view, including the surrounding scene of what would have normally been a snapshot.

If you find this verbal explanation a tad difficult to understand, certainly, a panoramic photo will worth a thousand words. That’s why we’ve put together for you this guide that will teach you how to take 360-degree pictures with your smartphone’s camera. Expect for frames twice as long as tall and for the ability to immortalize scenes that no human eye can actually process in one view!
