Use Photo Booth Camera on HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Rushell, Eng, M8 user
Hello. Welcome to VisiHow and this series of videos on how to use the camera on an HTC One M8. In this video, we are going to show you how to use the photo booth camera.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located on the top of the phone.
Once the phone has been activated, we will see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, swipe the screen upwards.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen, and at the bottom we will see several icons. It is one of these icons that we now need to access, as we need to open up the camera.
To do that, we can use the icon located at the bottom of the screen on the far right-hand side. It is an icon of a camera.
Press down on that icon, and it will open up the camera application
We now need to select the Photo Booth camera, and to do that we can use the icon in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. There are four white circles making a square. Press down on this icon.
We want the option at the top left that says, "Photo Booth".
If this option is not available, it will need to be added, which can be done by pressing down on the option with a plus sign and the word "ADD".
If the "Photo Booth" option is available, or it's just been added, then press down on that option. That will change the camera for us. We have a different way of doing things with the Photo Booth Camera.
At the top, we have the style of photo we can take. It shows four squares on top of each other, and this is the standard style. At a standard photo booth, when it takes pictures, they usually print on a long strip. It's always a pleasant surprise to see what the results are.
The style can be changed by pressing down on the four squares.
That will bring up a list of three different options.
For example, we could make it a grid instead of the long thin line of squares.
We could also use more of a window style, as the top option shows. Select the desired option.
In our example, we'll be using the "Filmstrip" option.
Next, we can choose the timer. It currently has a number "2" with a semicircle. That will how much time we have to prepare for the photo, and the timer will count down for us.
The same icon also appears on the bottom of the screen just to the right of the center circle. This indicates it is the option selected.
Press down on the timer icon at the top left of the screen to bring up four different options. We can choose to turn the timer off or make it longer.
We can edit the white balance by pressing on "AWB". We can also edit some other functions as well.
At the top of the screen is a live makeup. In our demonstration, it's a bit faint because of the light.
We can press down on the slider bar to increase or decrease this option.
On the right side, there is an image of a face with stars or glitter around it.
On the left, there is a face with nothing.
The left represents the more natural look, so if we move the white dot all the way to the left, the look will be more natural.
If we move the white dot all the way to the right, it will add a lot of airbrushing effect to the photo. When using the more natural effect on the left, this will show the picture just as it is, with any wrinkles, rivets, damage, etc. It isn't very flattering. However, when we move to the option on the far right, it will airbrush all of that out. It makes a face look very smooth and flawless. Choose the option preferred, a more natural or more artificial look.
We are using the front camera in this example to take more of a selfie picture.
When ready, we can press down on the large circle in the middle at the bottom of the screen. It has an icon of a film strip inside.
The camera will begin with a two second countdown, and then it will take a photo. It will continue doing this for four photos.
It will then stitch the photos together and show us the photos. Then we'll have our own photo booth style filmstrip photo.
This concludes our tutorial on how to use the photo booth camera on an HTC One M8. If you have any questions, comments or queries regarding this video or about the process that you have witnessed in this video, then please leave them in the comment section below, and we shall answer them for you.
