Do Collages on Samsung using Camera

Ever wondered if your camera app on the Android system does more than just capture or record individual moments in time? What if the camera could transform your snapshots into interesting collages with the touch of AI (artificial intelligence)? Actually, it is doable thanks to "Single Take".

It records the space for up to 15 seconds, captures the various moments in the video and turns them into collages, cropped shots, boomerang clips and so forth with a touch of the camera's AI. The short end of the stick is that AI decides which moments to take randomly and there is no collage editor as there is in the Gallery app.

Curious to know how? Here is how to generate random collages:

  1. Open the Camera app.
  2. Tap "Single Take" mode.
    1. In case it is not available on the main page, check whether it is available on "More" or not. If not, the feature might not be supported by your Android device.
  3. Tap "Shots to Capture ≓" in the top right.
  4. Make sure "Collages" are selected and tap "OK" to save the settings.
  5. Tap "Record".
    1. Press "Stop" to end the photo-taking process before the timer runs out
    2. Select +5s to extend the capture time by five seconds.
  6. Tap the Gallery thumbnail or directly open the Gallery app to view the Single Take format.
  7. Tap the dash (long horizontal bar) or swipe up from there to see all the created shots.
  8. Tap and hold the "Collage" to activate the additional menu.
  9. Tap "Download" to save the collage as a separate file in Gallery and Internal Storage.

Edit Collage on Samsung Created from Gallery

Once you have followed the steps in "Create Collages on Samsung using Gallery", the collage editor is opened to customize the appearance before saving it to the internal or external storage (SD Card).

Layout only changes the size of the visual elements within a determined border. Do you want to give your collage a various visual perspective like making it more rectangle or square?

  1. Make sure that the "Ratio" menu is opened.
  2. Select the desired ratio:
    1. 1:1: A square aspect ratio, or 1 to 1 ratio, denotes an equal width and height. It is presented squarely on social networking sites like Instagram.
    2. 9:16: In a portrait aspect ratio, where the height is greater than the width, the ratio is 9 to 16 ratio. Vertical videos or photos on social media sites like TikTok and Instagram stories frequently use this aspect ratio.
    3. 16:9: A landscape aspect ratio is one in which the width is bigger than the height, such as a 16 to 9 ratio. Computer displays, television broadcasts, and films frequently use this aspect ratio.
