Photos App and Fun Tips

If you love to take photos on your phone like I do, then you’ll love reading this post!  Most iPhones back to iPhone 4 had a decent camera.  Now most iPhones have AMAZING cameras whether you’re at the beach, playing with the kids, or taking photos of your fur babies!  Let’s go over a few fun tips to use on your iPhone.  If you would like to know exactly how and what your phone’s camera can do, go to my link here for a free user guide. FREE User Guides!

Find a Photo Fast

Open the Photos app on your phone. E86BB2F0-6E8B-4169-85A9-4556AA0168C1

Tap on the search bar and type in something you know is in your photos.  Try searching for animals, beach, sunset, buildings!  The app will search and show you photos that are in your search category automatically.  It’s an amazing feature of the Photos app.


Make a Photo a Favorite

After you take a photo, open the Photos app, tap on the photo you want to make a Favorite.  Tap on the small heart on the bottom middle of the screen and it turns blue💙. Now any photo you make a Favorite will show up in your Favorites album. When you open the Photos app, you’ll see All Photos and a few preset folders.  One of them is Favorites.  More on Albums & Photos in another post soon!


Use a Preset Size to Crop for Social Media

Want to make your photo Instagram ready? Open the photo you want to edit, then tap “Edit” in the top right corner of photo.

Then tap the “Crop” icon bottom left.  Next tap the small icon that looks like folders on the bottom right (see photo) and select your size.  AB5117F8-36BF-4A96-A648-13F0B7ADC68A

It will automatically give you a preview of the size you’ve selected.  Hit “Done” and if you choose square, your photo is Instagram ready!

  1. Thanks for this. I always get something useful from your posts. Yes, I do have a teenager who knows all this stuff, but you share it in a way that I understand and without tolling your eyes. LOL!
