How to Take HDR Photos with Samsung Galaxy

By Elsie Wesley, Tuesday, March 22, 2016

HDR, standing for high dynamic imaging, is a technique introduced to imaging and photography. Nowadays this technique is widely applied to Android cameras for the lights of Samsung Galaxy S8/S8 Plus/S7 Edge/S7/S6 Edge/S6, allowing users to reproduce a better dynamic range of luminosity than with standard digital photographic one. If you want to snap greater moments with your Samsung Galaxy, take HDR photos. This guide will show you how to turn on HDR mode on your device.
