    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.

    We want the second option that says "Crop". Underneath it says "Regular (4:3)", which is the option currently selected.

  12. 12
    "Regular (4:3)" is the one selected, as we can see by the green circle.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    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.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    We can see now that the screen is more of a square shape. The ratio is 1:1.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    Press down on the white cog icon again to open the "Settings" menu.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Then press down on "Crop".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    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.
