In photos, there are two different ways to share collections of images and videos. You can share moments, which are found under the Photos tab and usually encompass a day or location. Or, you can select individual images and videos to compile your own collection to share, which is what we'll cover in this tip. Perhaps you visited Costa Rica and want to share pictures of the beach, or a friend's baby is just learning to walk and she wants to send you videos. Regardless of the occasion, it’s fairly easy to share or copy multiple photos and videos. Here’s how to do it.

You need space on your phone and quickly! So you delete a few (or a few hundred!) photos. However, that doesn’t seem to give you space. That’s because your deleted photos go into your Recently Deleted folder. This folder saves your deleted photos up to 30 days after you delete them, so they’re still stored on your device and taking up storage. Luckily, it’s really easy to delete those pesky photos. Here’s how to do it.

Starting with the iPhone 6s, Apple introduced a selection of free Live Photo Wallpaper images to bring color and animation to your iPhone background. You can use one of these free Live Photos as your iPhone wallpaper on your Home screen or Lock screen, although the picture will only move on your Lock screen. If Apple's offerings aren't the cool iPhone wallpapers and backgrounds you want, you can always use your own Live Photo instead. Live Wallpaper looks like still wallpaper until you activate 3D Touch, or press and hold the screen. We've already gone over how to take a Live Photo and how to turn a Live Photo into a bounce GIF, now, let's go over how to make your own Live Photo wallpaper on your iPhone.

Apple introduced the Live Photo feature with the iPhone 6S, and it's still a fun and popular feature of the native iPhone Camera app. Unless you've unselected Live Photo settings in the Camera Settings, the Live Photo function is on by default when you open the Camera app, so you need to turn off Live Photo if you want a traditional still shot. Sometimes, though, we all forget to turn off Live Photo; now what? No worries, you can delete the Live Photo version of your picture and keep the still photo.

For our family vacation this year we decided to travel to Florida. I took tons of photos with my iPhone to save the fun memories. When we arrived home I wanted to share photos our trip with friends and family. It’s not always convenient though to gather around my iPhone’s screen when there’s more than one person viewing the photos. Sometimes you just need a stack of photo prints to pass around, use for scrapbooking or send to relatives who aren't digitally inclined. Fortunately there's no need to upload photos to your computer before printing. If you have an AirPrint printer (most major printer manufacturers have AirPrint installed in their latest models), it’s simple to tap your photos and print directly from your iPhone.

When you capture an image with your iPhone, the camera's autofocus (AF) and auto exposure (AE) features will automatically determine the best focus position for you and the best exposure for that area of focus. (Exposure determines how light or dark your image will be.) Alternatively, you can manually designate a different area of focus (and adjust the exposure of the image) by tapping on the area you prefer on your iPhone's screen. The iPhone's camera AE/AF Lock feature allows you to lock the focus and exposure settings you've selected so you don't have to reset them between each shot.
