How to take the best photos with your Google Pixel 2

The Google Pixel 2 has a superb camera. There’s no doubt about that. But we know that with all photography, it’s not just the tools — it’s how you use them that makes a huge difference. Even though you can open up your Pixel 2 with no knowledge of photography and take some great shots, you should strive to do more — and we have a handful of great tips to help you get the most out of this phone’s camera.

Turn on location

Every time you take a photo with a modern smartphone, it’s capable of having its GPS-based location tied to that photo — that is, if you turn on this setting. Keeping a location tied to a photo may not seem important right now, but think about years down the road when you want to remember even more about the photo that you took — knowing more than a date and time will be super valuable. It also lets services like Google Photos easily group and make your photos searchable by location.

To turn it on, hop into your camera settings and you’ll see the toggle for “Save location” right at the top. You can always turn this feature back off later, and Google Photos will also remove location information from photos when you share them from the app.
