Using Time Shift mode

Time Shift mode lets you take a series of pictures at once so that you can pick the best one of the set. Did someone blink in every shot, or cough just as you took the picture? You can fix that by swapping in different expressions for any person until everybody is picture perfect. You can also save the Time Shift pictures you take and edit them later.

  1. In the Camera app, tap The More Actions icon > The Time Shift icon.
  2. To take the picture, tap The Time Shift icon. Hold the camera steady until the picture appears.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • Move the slider at the bottom of the screen back and forth until you find the best picture. Tap The Save icon.
    • To edit the picture later, tap The Edit later icon.
    • To delete the picture, tap The Delete icon.
