    To unlock the phone, swipe the screen upwards.
    Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen. At the bottom, we will see icons. It is this section we need to focus on now because we need to open up the applications folder.

    Find the Photos application.
    In this demonstration, it is located at the bottom right. The Photos icon is a multi-colored pinwheel. Underneath, it says the word "Photos". The Photos application may be in any position in this folder. Find the icon and press down to enter the application. In this video, we want to show how to change the format for viewing photos.

    Check the title above the images to determine the current format.
    Ours is "Today", so we're looking at photos from today. We can change that format to month or to year. There are two ways to do this. The first is to change the format manually with a gesture.
