Edited by Thor, Melissa Rae, Jen M, Eng
Hello, and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to use the Lumia Cinemagraph lens when using the Lumia camera on a Microsoft Lumia 535.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the power button located on the right-hand side of the phone.
Once the phone is activated, swipe the lock screen up to enter the home screen.
Find and press the Lumia Camera tile, which has a purple background with a white outline of a camera in it.
If the Lumia Camera tile has not been pinned to the home screen, swipe to the left and locate it in the Apps menu.
Press the ellipses icon to bring up the menu, which looks like "..." and is located in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
Press the first menu option in white text, "lenses".
Press the Lumia Cinemagraph tile when the lenses have loaded.
It is a purple tile with a white outline of a frame, a cloud and a kite. If the tile does not appear in the list, it may need to be downloaded and installed. You can find it in the Microsoft store, and you can also search VisiHow for a video on how to do that. After downloading and installing the lens, come back and watch this video.
The camera will appear with some different options.
At the top, it will say "take picture, holding phone steady". It is important to hold the phone steady, otherwise it will not work. Also, it is important to capture a lot of movement, as that is what the camera is designed for. It is very good if you're in a park, or if people are playing or dancing.
Press the screen where movement is occurring in the camera view.
Make sure the movement stays within the blue circle.
Press down and hold the gray square that appears on the screen until it turns blue.
When it turns blue, it will start the animation and loop it. If there is more than one thing happening on the screen, there will be gray squares in different areas of the photo that represent the points of action. You can choose which ones to include in the animation, and which ones to keep static.
Press the icon with the check mark at the bottom of the screen when finished.
Press the "enhance" icon on the bottom-left of the screen.
It appears as a white icon with sparkles in it.
Press "loop+speed" in the menu that appears.
Press the gauge icon on the bottom-left of the screen to change the speed.
Once press will slow the animation speed, two presses will make it very slow, and another press will return it to normal speed.
Press the ellipses icon on the far-right at the bottom of the screen to see that the options are.
They include "crossfade", "loop", and "done".
Press "crossfade", the second option from the left with the two arrows in it.
It will crossfade the animation. It changes the image and makes it fade out towards the end.
Press the "loop" icon, which is a white circle with a curved arrow it in it.
That will make the image "bounce", meaning instead of looping, it will play normally, and then it will play in reverse. You can also press the gauge icon to change the speed again.
Press the curved arrow icon in the middle-bottom of the screen to return to the normal loop setting.
Press the ellipses icon in the far-right corner of the screen to see the options, and press the icon that says "done" when you're finished editing the animation.
Press the "enhance" button on the bottom-left, and press "effects" when the menu pops up.
Swipe the screen vertically to scroll through the different filters, and press on a filter to select it.
Press the "remove" icon, which is the second from the left and appears as a white circle with an eraser inside it.
This option allows users to swipe on the screen to erase areas from the animation. Another option is "add".
Swipe across the screen to erase parts of the animation.
Press the "add" icon, which is the second from the right and appears as a circle with a paintbrush inside it.
Swipe across the screen with your finger to add the removed areas back to the animation.
Press the "save" icon on the right, which is a white circle with a disk in it.
Press the ellipses icon to open the menu.
Options to share, edit, export and delete the animation will appear.
Press the white arrow at the bottom of the phone several times to exit the application and return to the home screen.
Locate the "Photos" tile and press it.
Locate and press the animation in Photos to open it.
Press the ellipses icon on the bottom-right of the screen to play the animation.
