Tip of the Day: Take Vertical Panoramic Photos


Panoramic photos are great for capturing an expanded view of a beautiful landscape by moving your iPhone from left to right or right to left as you take the photo in Pano mode. But what about when you want to capture a really tall building like the Eiffel Tower or a sky-scraping landscape feature? Did you know that you can take vertically oriented panoramic photos with your iPhone?

To take a vertical panoramic photo, hold your phone horizontally and tap on the yellow line to choose whether you will move your phone up or down as you take the picture.
