Chapter in this post:
Beautiful photos are not only the result of the lighting and the viewing angle. The division of the rectangle into specific areas is also important. If you want to split your iPhone photos better in the future and maybe try your hand at the "golden ratio", then you should activate the grid for the camera app. The grid consists of two horizontal and two vertical lines. It divides the camera preview into nine rectangles and gives you a better understanding of what percentage of the image is occupied by which content. It also helps center objects.
If you want to divide the preview for photos (as well as for videos) with a grid, then you can activate it in iOS settings. As with other features of the camera app, these cannot be set there directly, but must be activated or deactivated via the settings of the operating system. And that's how it works:
Now you can close the settings again and open the iPhone camera app. In the preview you can see the four lines that divide the image into nine equal parts. Thanks to these lines, you can now center objects better or align the 1: 2 or 2: 1 ratio of sky and landscape more quickly in landscape shots.
In the following you will find the steps described above summarized again as screenshots. So you can work your way up to the described feature more easily. Have fun taking pictures with the newly discovered function;) If you no longer want to use it, you can of course deactivate it again at the point shown.
