This video was very helpful as I'm gravitating from using my DSLR to using my 11 Pro. The piece that seems to be missing is using raw files which is how I shoot.
Sheila: You can shoot RAW on your iPhone. But you need to use a pro camera app for that. I did a video on it a while back (https://macmost.com/taking-raw-photos-with-your-iphone.html). I currently use Halide as my RAW camera app.
Hi I could not get the iPhone X (IOS 13.x) camera to show the "Extra Controls" as in your video. Do you need to enable some option to see these? Thanks
Rohit: No option, it should come up when you swipe.
Great tips as always, I really liked the last one with vertical panorama didn't know that. Keep up your great videos Gary. You have an audience even here in Sweden. I sell Apple computers and iPads to schools and I always tell both the teachers and students about you and your site.
Once again, easy to understand and great tips. The level feature is fantastic for me; I am often taking photos of photos and suffering when I had to evenly crop them because they were distorted from not being level. I wish that feature worked when you point straight up as well, because there are many ceilings here (I'm visiting Italy) that I'd like to get a nice level shot.
Thank you for the tips!
Hi Gary, same issue as Rohit. iPhone XS Max doesn’t show the extra controls when swiping. Is it perhaps an iPhone 11 feature only?
Irene: No, it isn't just for the iPhone 11. Which version of iOS are you using?
Hi, I am using an iPhone8 and finding this tutorial excellent, one small issue however is that I cannot seem to locate the effects via the Live image in retaltion to long exposure. I have taken a number of water based shots and would love to be able to do the long exposure. But swiping up does not locate the effects menu. Is this due to the age of my iPhone ??? or something else
Paul: It should work on an iPhone 8. Are these new photos or old ones? Try taking a new shot right now with Live Photos turned on and see if you can access the Live Photos effects like I show in the video.
Hi Gary, in answer to your question re iOS version: 13.2
Irene: Do you see those same controls at the top (or opposite side) of the screen? If so, I guess it just behaves a little differently for your screen. But the result is the same.
Gary, I have the same problem as Irene and Rohit. I have an iPhone X and we do not have the option to change ratio in our photos like the example you show in your video starting at 4m18s. Maybe this is only an iPhone 11 and 11 Pro feature?
Donald: I don't have an older iPhone to test at the moment, but I'd be surprised if the option isn't there on the X too. Maybe it fits on the screen in a slightly different. Look at the other side of the screen rather than near the shutter button.
Same problem - no extra tools.
