How do iPhone 13 photo styles work?
A new camera feature called Photo Styles has been added to the new iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro. In case you still don’t and don’t know how it goes, we’ll walk you through what it is and how it works.
As we already mentioned in the entry with the arrival of the new iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro, a new faculty has also been incorporated in what is called the camera. Photographic styles.
This new function allows you to retouch a photo in real time, but it does not stop there, since behind this edition there is much more and it is not limited to just a few parameters.
It’s a new option that has nothing to do with filters or other camera features that we already had before.
What are Photo Styles?
A simplistic way that many use to define the photo styles of the new iPhone 13 is that they are more sophisticated filters. Well, this is not only an incorrect definition, but also extremely biased.
Photo styles are different types of data processing algorithms provided by the cameras, so that the ISP can keep them in mind and thus provide the user with exceptional finishes and style in photos, as well as different.
Photo settings will be adjust shot to shot, zone by zone, which would be impossible if it were a simple filter.
It is true that adding light or contrast to a photo is something that lasts for a long time, but the truth is that the difference in the iPhone is that these adjustments are taken into account when processing images.
This is where you have the main difference with a filter, since photo styles are created in smart way during the process to take pictures, adjusting the images according to what we have chosen.
The result of photos with this feature is to have certain areas that are altered to give it that touch we requested, while other areas remain untouched in order to provide a truly spectacular set of photographs.
This is something impossible to achieve with the filters that we all have in some devices, as you will understand..
How to select a photographic style
The preset photo styles in iPhone 13 are High contrast, bright, hot and cold. Tone and warmth values can also be customized.
This all means that the camera will apply this setting when we take a photo, although we have to indicate this first. Let’s see how:
We open the Camera and we touch the button Camera controls, which is a circle with an up arrow. Now click on Photographic styles then swipe left to preview the different styles.High contrast: Darker shadows, more intense colors and higher contrast. Shiny– Much brighter and more vivid colors to create a bright and natural look. Warm: golden hues that create a warmer look. Cold: shades of blue that create a cooler style If we want to personalize a photographic style, we have to touch the Tone and heat controls below the box and drag the slider left or right to adjust the value. If you want to restore the photographic styles that were at the beginning, you just need to click on the button Restore. The last thing is to touch the Photographic Styles button to apply it and the photo already comes out with this asset.
Other Ways to Enjoy iPhone 13 Camera
In addition to the photography styles, in the iPhone 13 there are other camera systems that we can take advantage of that are perfectly compatible with what we just saw.
Features such as night mode To improve night shots, the ProRAW to get the most out of terminal sensors or even the kinematic mode, are other ways to enjoy the great iPhone 13 camera.
This mode is available via the Camera app from Apple devices.
On the new iPhone 13 activates automatically when he interprets that the scene has a lot of darkness. We’ll find out because an icon with a moon appears at the top of the screen.
In this mode, the photos may have greater brightness and better detailsSince the shutter opening lets in more light and in the seconds it takes to take the picture, it manages everything to ensure that the result is completely satisfactory.
ProRAW photo format
The ProRAW this is an Apple interpretation of the RAW format.
The main difference between this format and normal photos is based on the snapshot information level. While formats like JPEG remove unnecessary information when processing an image, in RAW the level of retention is enormous.
These files can be said mostly data raw which can be handled later with image processing applications such as Apple Photo itself or other Photoshop styles.
This will allow you to change the photo after it is taken, because by being able to process it with compatible specialized programs, those photos will be improved exponentially.
These file types are great for people with extensive photography knowledge who want to dig deeper into the results.
It’s not a function of what photography is, but we found it interesting to include it because it is part of what the camera is.
This mode offers a smooth control of video depth of field that we record or even after recording it.
When we talk about depth of field, we are referring to the amount (depth) of focal plane (field) available for the camera. This depth is defined by the range of objects in the photo that are of acceptable sharpness to the person viewing the image.
Objects too close or too far from the lens are outside this acceptable sharpness range and will be blurred.
Cinematic mode allows the person recording a video to move from one subject or object to another in the frame and thus obtain an effect that looks really good, blurring the one that is not the main one, to come back to it when you want.
If you have an iPhone 13 or are planning to buy one, you already know the interesting faculty of photographic styles and all they do.
So now grab your brand new Apple and give them a try, to tell us what you found on our social media.
