Crop Photos on HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Rushell, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. This is part of a series of videos on how to use the camera on an HTC One M8. In this video, we are going to show you how to crop a photo by using different screen ratios.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located on the top of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated, we will see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen upwards.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen, and at the bottom we will see several icons.
It is one of these icons that we now need to access, as we need to open up the camera.
To do that, we can use the icon located at the bottom of the home screen and on the far right-hand side.
It is an icon of a camera.
Press down on that icon, and the camera will open.
In this video, we want to demonstrate how we can crop a photo by using different screen ratios.
To do that, we can use the white cog icon on the left-hand side of the screen.
First, we can see the current ratio of the screen.
Note the dimensions of the image.
Now, press down on the white cog icon to open the "Settings" menu.
We want the second option that says "Crop".
Underneath it says "Regular (4:3)", which is the option currently selected.
If we press down on "Crop", it will bring up a list of three different ratio options.
"Regular (4:3)" is the one selected, as we can see by the green circle.
There's also "Wide (16:9)", which is often used in cinema, especially Westerns, to make a grand visual experience.
It's good for images of vast landscapes and things like that.
We also have "Square (1:1)".
These will help us to crop our photos. Changing the ratio will allow us to take photos of different sizes.
If we press down on the circle across from "Square (1:1)", this will immediately change the ratio and return us to the previous camera screen.
We can see now that the screen is more of a square shape.
The ratio is 1:1.
Press down on the white cog icon again to open the "Settings" menu.
Then press down on "Crop".
Now, let's try "Wide (16:9)".
We can see how big the screen is with that now.
This lets us crop our photos, which can be very useful. It helps to give an image or photo a different perspective. If we just take photos in the same way all the time, it may lack a bit of variety. Using the crop option can be useful, especially for framing and taking more interesting photos. Play around with all of these different ratios and see which ones work best for which photos. Experiment and try to improve your photographic ability.
This concludes our tutorial on how to crop a photo by using different screen ratios on the camera of an HTC One M8.
