What are the advantages of using the HDR of your Samsung Galaxy camera?

HDR is an abbreviation for High Dynamic Range, which means that to understand it, you need to know what the term means. Dynamic range is the ability of a camera to capture highlight and shadow details in the same image. That is, what is brightest in the photo, as well as what is darkest, shows up very well, all of which are also kept in the middle.

So the point of HDR is to try to get as much dynamic range as possible by using your phone’s camera to handle highlights and shadows in the best possible way.

With this, try to be able to bring more light into the dark areas of the photo to better see what is in it and avoid other highlights from looking blown or completely white. Once all this has been clarified in detail, we will tell you some advantages of using HDR in the camera of a Samsung Galaxy.

professional touches

By using HDR in your photos, this will make it have a much more professional touch, however, as we already know this can not only be used from the camera, but there are also editing applications like Snapseed where you can increase or decrease HDR , and if you put too much you can cause the opposite effect that your photos look very exaggerated and that is not what we want.

Control the brightness of your photos

Another advantage of putting HDR on your photos, as we mentioned, this will make the brightness of your photos much more controlled, resulting in better quality.

What should you do to activate HDR mode on your Samsung Galaxy?

If you are going to use the HDR mode on your Samsung Galaxy phone , here in Watch How To Do It we will explain how you can activate this function, so that the camera is configured and thus improve the quality of your photos.

Activate the ‘Rich tone’ function

  1. On the main screen of your Samsung Galaxy phone where all the applications are located, you need to search for Camera and tap on it to open it.
  2. Then click on the option that says MODE.
  3. Finally just select where it says Rich Tone which is HDR.
  4. When capturing the photo, avoid shaking the phone, as doing so will make it blurry.
  5. Ready that simple is to activate this function that will allow your photographs to look much more professional.

How to take photos automatically with the HDR function on your Samsung Galaxy?

The HDR function , if you wish, you can place it in automatic mode so that every time you go to take a picture this function is already activated, here we will explain how to do it ; however, there are different models of Samsung Galaxy and these steps may vary depending on the one you have, but it can serve as a guide anyway.

  1. Among your apps, find camera and tap on it to open it.
  2. Once there, click on the icon that has the shape of a gear, then where it says HDR
  3. Finally just select Auto HDR.

There are many people who do not recommend  activating this mode that we have just mentioned . Because on phones especially low-end ones these auto modes aren’t always set right, and you can end up putting HDR in when it’s not needed and making the photo look less realistic than it should be, and it’s not. you want to achieve.

In general, whenever possible, it is recommended to use the HDR mode manually when you see a high contrast of light. For example, you know you’ll almost always need this mode when taking backlit photos or close-ups in dark places or against very bright backgrounds.
