Galaxy S8 And S8 Plus: How To Take Panoramic Photos

The human eye is made to process details and to blur everything else in the background. More often than not, when fascinated by a particular shooting subject, we end up creating a detail-picture and we regret not having enough of the surrounding environment in that frame. Thanks to the panoramic photos, however, we can now start capturing a lot more from the surrounding of any given photo subject.

If you have a Samsung Galaxy S8 or a Samsung Galaxy S8+ Plus, you’d better check out this option right away. We’re talking great quality pictures at 360 degrees, twice as long as tall, ready to capture in an instant!


Anxious To Shoot First Panoramic Photo With Galaxy S8 And S8 Plus camera?

Then you’d better turn on the camera app;

  1. Identify the Mode option, long pressing its icon;
  2. Next, select the Panorama thumbnail;
  3. Aim the camera lens on the subject of your panoramic photo;
  4. And start shooting following the visual cues from the screen of the camera app.


In case you’re wondering what kind of visual cues we’re talking about, suffices to say that the screen will display an alignment box throughout the duration of capturing a panoramic photo. Once you press the shutter button of the camera, you will know how to move the camera, right or left, making sure that you align the scenes that you’re capturing, according to that alignment box.


Also importantly, you can end a panoramic photo whenever you’ve captured enough frames, by simply stopping the movement of the camera, or you can keep moving it in one direction until you reach the maximum range. Regardless of how you choose to proceed, the camera app will then process the multiple images, stitch them all together, and create one large panoramic image out of it.

You can check out the panoramic photos, as compiled by the camera of your Samsung Galaxy S8 or S8+ Plus, anytime. Simply bring up the Gallery app and take a look at the latest snapshots, the panoramic pictures should be there as well.
