    We also need to check and ensure that we are in the "Today" format.
    The word "Today" will be present, underneath of the three horizontal lines we previously tapped. This is because if we are in the Month or Year format, it may be difficult for us to select a photo. We will have to take more steps, swiping and zooming in more than necessary.We are going to show an example of the difficulty of being in a different format.

    In order to get to this stage, we need to be in the format where all the photos are slightly enlarged. If we are not in that format, we will not be able to zoom into an individual photo. We will have to go from Year, Month, Day, to the enlarged photo section, then to the individual photo.

    Then we will swipe our fingers apart, giving us the ability to move and rotate the photo around the screen.
    This does not serve a purpose or benefit us in any way. However, it is an option. This is how we zoom in and out quickly in the Photos application. We need to ensure that we are in the "Today" section, where the photos will be slightly enlarged. As we previously mentioned, we can swipe through the sections. The same way that we can zoom in and out of an individual photo.
