The modality Photo is the one set by default when the app is opened Camera by Huawei. By activating the front camera, via thecamera icon with an arrow around it (bottom right) you can set some effects on selfies to take.

First, the zoom levelwhich you can adjust on the right, using a special bar set by default to the value 1x and which can reach a specific maximum value that varies according to the smartphone model used.

In the section at the top, then, other buttons are available, such as the flash (it is generally simulated by making the screen completely white and very bright when shooting) and the coloring effects. With this last button, you can change the color tones of the shot you will take, setting one in black and white or with bright colors, just to give you some examples.

When you’re ready to take the selfie, tap the round button at the bottom center (or use the volume button used for shooting), to take the photo. The latter will then be available in the app Tunnel or you can easily view it using the thumbnail which appears at the bottom left and which recalls, in fact, the photo from the multimedia gallery of the device.

Portrait mode

Huawei Portrait Mode

The modality Portrait it is the most suitable for selfies. It allows, in fact, to enable a series of additional options for the improvement of the shots compared to those present in the mode Photowhich I told you about in previous chapter.

Via the icon EffectsAt the bottom, for example, you can apply effects on the background that allow you to bring out the subject of the photo by blurring the background. In addition to this, there is the mode Beauty which aims to mitigate the signs of aging present on the subject’s face, in order to try to “rejuvenate it”. It consists of a bar with values ​​ranging from 1 to 10 and that exactly set the most marked attenuation at higher levels.

Again, as seen for the mode Photoall you have to do is take the shot and it will be available in the Huawei media gallery, quickly accessible via the photo thumbnail just taken, in the lower left corner of the screen.

Panorama mode

Huawei Overview Mode

The modality Panorama is accessible in the app Camera via the card Other. As the name of this mode suggests, it allows you to make a composition of three shots: one front, which represents the classic selfie, and two side shots.

At the software level, the Camera app will process the images by assembling them into a single larger photo that will also include the background elements usually overshadowed or partially visible with a simple selfie.

The only effect that can be activated in the mode Overview with the front shutter active that’s that Beautywhich I have already told you about in detail in previous chapter. There are no other effects or filters available, much less the zoom ring.

Once you have taken the first shot, you will be prompted to position the frame in the side rectangles that will be shown on the screen, in order to capture the environmental elements present both to the right and to the left of the subject.
