IPHONE owners have been informed of a handy setting that allows them to instantly find any of their photos.
Finding a specific photo in your iPhone albums can be daunting.
This is especially true for people who have thousands of images on their devices over the years.
Luckily, there’s a hidden iPhone camera trick that can help you find the photo you’re looking for.
The trick is to add captions to your images so you can look up any photo in seconds.
“Captions are a handy way to augment the metadata already associated with the photos on your iPhone,” Slashgear said.
“It provides additional context to the image and helps to briefly describe or explain the content of the image,” it added.
How to add captions
First, go to the Photos app and find an image in the iPhone camera roll.
Swipe up while touching the photo and select the Add Caption box.
Enter the caption you want to add using specific keywords that are searchable and distinguishable > tap Done.
You can also do this from your computer by going to icloud.com/photos.
Sign in > open a photo > select the info button at the top right of the screen.
Click Edit, then type your caption below the caption field.
When you’re happy with your caption, just tap Save.
HOW TO SEARCH FOR PICTURES
To search for your picture, tap the Search tab in the Photos app on your iPhone.
Then just type words from the headline and it should show up in the results.
