Questions and Answers

How do I reshape a face when there are a few people in the picture?

The box around the subject's face won't move to the subject I want to edit.

Galaxy S4 built-in photo editor will automatically choose the faces on the picture when you tap on the "Portrait" edit option. There are edit options under Portrait that the phone only gets to choose the face that t thinks needs to be enhanced, so when you tap on the "Beauty Face" option to change the face of subjects, Galaxy S4 will automatically choose what subject needs to be changed and there is no manual way of choosing the subject. You can download third-party applications that allow you to change the face shapes of a picture with multiple people on it. Beauty Camera And Perfect365 are two of the better photo editors that focus on facial edits. Download either application from Play Store or directly from your mobile web.

Even though the S4 is an amazing device, it does have its limitations when it comes to capturing every face in a picture. I notice you said there are multiple people in the picture, so unfortunately, you will not be able to edit the one particular person.

In order to use this feature, you simply need to tap on the person's face while in the red eye mode to fix the red eye in your image. Once you click on the person's face, the device will remove the red eye if possible. Sometimes, it just doesn't seem to work, but your are doing it the right way.

I have Note3, and the Portrait feature Airbrush is stuck on one face?

It has a square on one person's face and the alterations only happen to that one face. I'd like to fix everyone's face/red eye, etc.

Unfortunately, editing multiple people's face in one photo on Samsung Galaxy Note3's built in photo editor isn't possible. This is because your editor is set to automatically choose the face that needs to be enhanced, and there is no way to manually select the face you want to edit. However, you can download a third-party application called Perfect365 which will allow you to edit multiple people in one photo. You can get this application on Google Play Store for free. Please use this link. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.arcsoft.perfect365&hl=tl

With the camera application open, touch and hold "Mode Galaxy Camera" button. Then select Beauty Face thumbnail. Now you need to aim the camera at your subject. Slightly press the shutter button until you see a green point appear for your subject, you can also touch the screen instead. Once you see the focal point, you can take the picture as normal.

For best results, the picture you must use to do a Beauty Face is one that's focused on the face, with only one person in the photo. You could take a "selfie", if it's a picture of you you'd like to manipulate. Do the following to edit in Beauty Face:

  • Go to your gallery app.
  • Tap the picture you want to edit.
  • Tap "Edit Image" (upper right icon with Polaroid picture and pencil).
  • Tap the Effects button/wand.
  • Tap the person with the wand icon to edit their portrait.
  • Tap beauty face.
  • You can then adjust the intensity or change by moving the pointers to the desired level for each of the four facial options.

If it is too hard for you to tweak, you can try apps like Camera 360 that has the effect to make skin smooth. It also has other effects that you can use for social networks like instagram.

Red-Eye Removal option doesn't work. Why?

Red eye option in portraits doesn't work. Sometimes the whole portrait option isn't available for certain pix. Why?

This option is not fully available for use on all pictures. This is an issue a lot of users are experiencing.

How do you move your editing ox?

I want to edit a picture with two people in it, but it only lets me edit one face. How do I move the box so I can edit the other face instead?

Unfortunately, It is not possible to move the editing box or manually choose the subject you want to edit. Galaxy S4's built-in photo editor automatically chooses the face that needs to be enhanced on a picture with multiple faces.

How to add frame to my picture that was captured by my camera?

How to add frame to my picture that was captured by my camera?

You could find some useful Samsung frame app on Google play

You can download various apps that can do this. Usually, these apps have templates already. Just select and input your photo there. There are also apps that allow you to not just add a singular frame, but you can make something similar to a magazine. Most of these apps are free and all you have to do is download them onto your device. It will keep the original version of the photo as well, even when you have converted it into a framed picture later on.
