Vertical panorama on iPhone

The iPhone’s excellent panorama mode allows for easy vertical panoramic shots as well, perfect for taking pictures of tall trees, waterfalls, buildings, or anything else that is taller than the standard range provides. To shoot a vertical panoramic picture, all you need to do is open Panorama as usual, then rotate the iPhone sideways:

  • Open Camera, then tap “Options” and select “Panorama”
  • Once in Panorama, simply rotate iPhone into horizontal orientation
  • Shoot the panorama photo as usual, tapping “Done” when complete

Panorama is smart enough to save the resulting vertical shot into the proper vertical orientation, so you won’t need to rotate the image after the fact.

If you’re new to Panorama mode, don’t miss some tips for taking the best panoramic photos with the iPhone. You’ll need iOS 6 or later to have the feature on newer iPhone models.
