Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge: How to Take a HDR Photo in Camera App in Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

The Camera app in Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has a feature named HDR mode which will let you take photos with rich colours and reproduce details even when you're taking photos in bright and dark areas. This feature works by combining multiple photos taken at different exposure levels into a single photo to provide you a final photo with a good exposure. You can use it to help you get a better result when taking photo of a landscape, building, portrait in sunlight, shaded object, and low-light scene.

How to take a HDR photo in the Camera app?
HDR mode can be used in both the rear and front cameras. But, as the example, we'll take a HDR photo with the rear camera while in Auto mode by using the following steps:
  1. Open the Camera app. By default, it uses the rear camera with the auto mode.
  2. Tap HDR icon at the top of the screen to change the HDR settings. The icon changes depend on the setting you're using:
    • : this icon will display when HDR mode is disabled.
    • : this icon will display when HDR mode is enabled.
    • : this icon will display when HDR mode is set to auto which means your phone will automatically enable HDR mode based on the shooting conditions.
    As the example, we'll set the HDR settings to ON or always enable.
  3. Now, point the camera to the object.
  4. If needed, you can change the focus by tapping anywhere on the screen where the camera should focus.
  5. Tap to take a HDR photo.
  6. Tap the preview thumbnail to view the photo in full screen view in the Gallery app.
