    Bokeh effect

    You can take pictures with the Bokeh effect when using the dual camera on your device. The Bokeh effect decreases focus in the background of a photo to emphasize objects at the foreground, for an artistic effect.

    To take a photo with Bokeh effect

    1. When using the camera, tap Mode > Bokeh.
    2. To adjust the background defocus strength, tap (Dual camera effect icon) > (Bokeh icon). Drag the slider to adjust.
    3. To adjust the brightness, tap Skin brightness icon(Brightness icon). Drag the slider to adjust.
    4. Tap the shutter button to take a photo.


    If you get too close to or too far to an object while using the Bokeh effect, a warning message appears. If this happens, adjust the distance between your camera and the object to take the photo with Bokeh effect.
