As you hopefully know, I have been writing articles on Samsung phones. If you have missed any of the lessons, here are the links:

Now that you are caught up, it is time to teach you something new. Recently I found out how you can take a selfie/picture without actually touching your phone. That is right, your Samsung phone will allow you to take a picture by holding up your hand. This is a great feature since some of us don’t always have a friend or family member there when we want to take that amazing picture or we want to take a pic at a distance. Plus, this can keep anyone from being left out of those group photos. It is time to share this new knowledge with all of you. Pull out those devices and let’s get started.
Take Hands-Free Pictures On Samsung
I tested this on my Samsung Galaxy A20, A10, and my wife’s A21.
Step 1: Turn on your device and tap on your Camera app icon.
Step 2: Once the camera is open, look to the top left. There should be a Gear settings icon. Tap it.
Step 3: Under the camera settings find Shooting Methods. Tap it.
Step 4: On the Shooting Methods screen you will see the Show Palm option. Tap the switch to the right of it to turn the feature on. After tapping, it will turn blue.
Step 5: Now head back to your Camera app. To take the picture with no hands (well, not touching the device) hold your hand up with palm facing camera. You should now see a circle and the count down will start (it is fast). Move your hand down and your picture will be taken. DONE!
This is a great way to make sure everyone is included in the picture. No need to have someone take the picture and miss out on not being in it. Time to share your new knowledge with the world.
