    It is one of these icons that we now need to access, as we need to open up the "Apps" folder
    .
    To do that we need to use the icon located at the bottom of the home screen and in the middle. We can see that there is a grid made up of white dots.

    In this folder we need to find the Photos application
    .
    This one is located on the bottom row. We can see that there is an icon of a shape, and it's made up of different colors. Underneath, it says the word "Photos". The "Photos" application may be located anywhere in this folder. Therefore, we will need to locate it.

  10. 10
    Press down on that icon and it will bring up some editing options
    .
    Make sure that the icon in the lower left corner is highlighted in blue, and we can see the options. The first thing we need to be warned about is that this editing function can be a little bit temperamental. Often when we go in and out of these options, we might have to do that several times. This is because they pop up and they pop down. This maybe is a slight glitch with this editing function.

    We are going to start then on the far right-hand side of the screen
    .
    We can see it says the word "Vignette". There is an icon of a square with a circle inside.

    We're going to press down on the blue circle
    .
    Then we'll move our finger right and left to position that blue circle somewhere on the scale that we're happy with. Press down on that blue circle and move it to a position that we want.

    We can see that this option, "Vignette", is going to make the corners of the photo darker
    .
    We can edit this choice of course.

    We're going to press down on the blue circle and move it to the position that we want
    .
    This option is quite subtle. It's going to give greater clarity to some of the lines, but it doesn't have the biggest effect. We can press down on the blue circle and move it to a position that we're happy with.

    As we can see the scale has disappeared
