How many photos have you taken with just your smartphone? Just think about the countless photos you've taken of your friends, pets, objects and family members. What about those you've taken while traveling to exotic locations and your favorite nearby destinations?
When capturing these cherished memories, of course, you want to get the best shot possible, either for sharing online or saving on your own digital scrapbook. You don't have to be a professional photographer to get the most out of your smartphone's camera. Sometimes, a little bit of tweaking and know-how is all it takes.
Here are some quick and easy tricks for taking better photos with your Android.
Clean your lens
My first tip may sound simple but it could make the difference between a keeper or an image destined to be deleted. Before taking a shot, make sure your phone lens is clean!
Fingerprint smudges, specks of dust and lint can blur your phone's camera lens and ruin an otherwise perfect picture.
Make sure you wipe it down with a piece of cloth before taking a photo. To avoid scratches, the best way to clean a camera lens is with a microfiber cloth. If you're planning on doing extensive photo shoots with your Android smartphone, make sure you have at least one of these cleaning cloths handy.
Choose the best resolution
Next, to maximize your Android smartphone camera's capabilities, try setting the resolution to the highest possible. This ensures that your image will be as sharp as it can be. Maximizing your resolution also means you have more flexibility when it comes to editing the photo, like cropping or zooming, for example.
