Today, I'm going to show you how to take 100X photos regardless of your device.

Important Notice: To save you all this work, I suggest you to buy a Galaxy S 21 * Ultra.

Here is the list of my subjects :

  • (More to come)

First of all I want to tell you that all photographers with technical knowledge in photography know this trick and  I find it ingenious on Samsung's part to have exploited this trick in the AI ​​(Artificial Intelligence) of 'cameras' Top of the line ".

This saves a lot of books for amateur photographers.

Having said that, let's begin to walk you through the steps to get there. Everything will happen in the editor of Samsung.

Well, here is the main photo and it is from it that all the next manipulations will be made.

The first thing to know is this:  for the best possible results you need to take this photo with the best lens on your camera and a zoomed photo will not give you as good results UNLESS you took a lens. dedicated quality optics.

On the S21 Ultra you have a 10X lens and assuming you can magnify an image 100X that would mean your photo would be magnified 1000X using that lens. 

This is how I did it thanks to the editor of Samsung: 

Always make a copy of your photo regardless of the stage you are at

Step 1



Step 2 = + or - 10 X

I took my original photo and cropped this one to keep only the area that I'm really interested in and saved it ( Remember I'm only working on the copy of the original so as not to lose this one by mistake )

Then,  and this is the important part, I clicked on the image to make it Full Screen AND I take a screenshot that I will save for future use if necessary ...

Note that I work a lot with my computer either with Samsung DEX and / or with the Windows "Your Phone" application to get the best screenshot possible and I don't hesitate to turn the Screenshot to see it. in Landscape Mode if it is advantageous.

It is important to keep a certain standard and during my screenshot I resize this one so as not to lose the quality of the image and pick myself up with a photo that will be smaller and smaller because you would have skipped a step 

Since I like free apps, I use Irfanview 64 bit on the computer and all my screenshots are resized there keeping the aspect ratio of the image.


Here's what it looks like, it's about 10X the size of the original photo.



Step 3 = + or - 30 X

If you have understood step 1 and 2 correctly, I am only doing these steps again with the copy of photo 2 that I saved OR I use the Screen Capture I made earlier and I crop the part of the image that I want to keep to enlarge it further


This image represents approximately a 30X magnification of the original photo





Step 4 = + or - 100 X

And since you have fully understood the principle of step 1 and 2 and 3, I repeat this step with the screenshot obtained following step 3 and FINALLY I obtain an image being approximately what you would obtain on a S21 ultra ... Mias what allowed me to get there are the screenshots and the resizing of it



This last step shows you the part of the photo you wanted to magnify 100X


If you have passed all these steps, I can only say CONGRATULATIONS

I hope this post will be useful to help you enlarge your photos as you would have allowed a High End camera.

P.S. Be sure you respect all steps or you will have a mini picture like this :

Interesting trick, @Cassidy007🤔


I'm not sure if I was doing it right though, as my cropped photos were indeed smaller.


In the end: 


  1. I cropped the original photo using Photo Editor;
  2. Clicked on the screen to get the cropped photo to display full screen;
  3. Took a screenshot of the cropped photo and saved it;
  4. Transferred a copy of the original and the screenshot over to my PC;
  5. Used MS Paint to adjust the size of the screenshot up to around the same size as the original.


But it feels like it's not quite what should be happening - especially as I could've just transferred the original photo over to my computer, and then in MS Paint cropped the part I wanted, and resized/upscaled the cropped part. 😄

Interesting but the reason why i prefer to keep and crop the original pictures in the Samsung's Editor first , it's because my screen resolution is better than the resolution of the PC Monitor resolution.

When do  i change to make my printscreens on the smartphone, it's when i enlarge the last crop and realise that the printscreen is smaller then the screen of the smartphone. It's harder to make a crop in that time with the Samsung's Editor !

Also, when you crop, you can't definitively keep the same resolution acreen because your pixels are bigger and bigger due to the crop so this is why i take a smaller resolution screen to make the crop. (not sure how to say it in english, but it's clear in my head).

Like i tell you in private, if my PC screen Monitor resolution was higher than 1980 X 1080, i'd probably make all the crops on it but i'm not sure of this. (Like i can't see make any tests and see what would be the difference, i don't want to tell you something wrong.)

Is it better with a PC Monitor with 4K UHD 3840 x 2160 resolution ? If somebody can answer me, he is welcome :winking-face: @GusB seems to work more than me with Lightroom or Snapseed Editor so maybe he can tell us more about Resolution and Crops !!!
