One of the coolest features of smartphones is the ability to take a picture anywhere you want. If you need a little help with becoming a photographer from your Android device, we’re here to help you. Here’s how to take a picture on your Android device.

KEEP IN MIND: Not all Android phones are the same. Some will have more steps required to complete each task, others will have less. At AndroidGuys, we will do our best to walk you through each task as well as we can.

The first thing you’ll need to do is find your camera app. Choose it, and it will open right away. (Your camera app might look a bit different from ours, but it requires generally the same action to take a picture.)

Picture 1

Find the subject you’d like to photograph. If it looks too blurry on your screen, tap where you’d like it to focus. A circle will pop up, showing where the camera is focusing.

Picture 2

Once the camera focuses, tap the shutter button. It’s usually off to the bottom or the right side. After you tap the button, the picture has been taken. Head over to your Gallery or Photos app to check out your photography skills!
