HOW TO ADD A PHOTO TO A CONTACTS ENTRY

To the immediate left of the First Name field is a circle that says Add Photo. When

you tap this field, a submenu with two options—Take Photo and Choose Photo—is

displayed. If the entry already has a photo associated with it, the Edit Photo and

Delete Photo options are also displayed.

Tap Take Photo to launch the Camera app from within the Contacts app and snap

a photo to be linked to the Contacts entry you’re creating. Alternatively, tap on the

Choose Photo option. In this case, the Photos app launches so that you can choose

any digital image that’s currently stored on your iOS mobile device. When you

tap the photo of your choice, a Choose a Photo window displays on the Contacts

screen, enabling you to move and scale the image.

TIP

As you’re previewing the image (shown in Figure 13.11), use a pinch

or reverse-pinch finger motion to zoom in or out, and then hold your finger down

on the image and reposition it within the frame.

you’re reviewing your contacts.
