How to Correct Fish-eye Effect on S10 Plus Ultra-wide Photos
For all of those users who say a great camera is the top feature they’re looking for in a smartphone, Samsung has made a few changes. The Korean giant has plenty to offer in its latest S10 Plus. This includes those amazing ultra-wide photos that everyone talks about. Out of the box, your Galaxy S10 Plus allowed users to enjoy the ultra-wide camera for regular photos and videos.
Even more, the ultra-wide lens was also used for background blur in Live Focus photos, but that was it. With the May update, Samsung added the option to take Night mode shots with the ultra-wide camera, and you may also take panorama pictures with the ultra-wide camera. Even if you like the sound of it, the fish-eye effect is noticeable in certain scenes. It can also be barely seen in others, but it’s there.
The Galaxy S10 Plus comes though with a built-in shape correction feature to fix that distortion. So, you don’t have to worry about a thing. You just have to enable the shape correction feature which immediately crops out a part of the photo at the edges.
Basically, the distorted edges are simply cut out of the frame, leaving you without the fish-eye effect. The point is that this shape correction feature for the ultra-wide camera is disabled by default, so here’s how to find and activate it on your Galaxy S10 Plus.
How to Correct Fish-eye Effect:
- To begin the procedure, open Camera on your Galaxy S10 Plus;
- Then, tap the gear icon on the top left of the camera UI to go into camera settings;
- Go to the Save Options;
- You must now tap the toggle next to ultra-wide shape correction to turn the feature on;
- Feel free to capture any photos and there should be no distortion.
Hopefully, your issue is resolved now. And remember that it’s best to have the option enabled at all times, as cutting out the distorted edges rarely has an adverse effect on an ultra-wide photo’s usefulness.
