Is it just my camera or is it Galaxy S9plus?

    This is getting embarrassing showing finished signs to customers via photo. WTF is wrong with the camera? Is this all cell-phone cameras or just the S9+? Look how it makes my signs look so jacked up. Everything is dead straight..the wall, the sign the slot board...everything, yet it makes it look crazy.

    There may be some odd stabalization settings that may be trying to "fix" the image. Also thought all the Entertainmarts changed to Recharge.

    Photoshop lens correction filter might help you there.

    Thanks for the tip, that got me checking out the settings and I saw some bixby correction setting that I unchecked. I'm going to try different camera modes to see if that helps. I think "Pro" mode uses a different lens

    Instead of buying a Christmas present that collects drill dust for yourself in June. Go on Amazon Prime and buy yourself a Canon Powershot digital camera with image stabilization for $119. And like someone mentioned take it into Photoshop and correct the things you feel need to be corrected. Keep it in the glovebox of your truck.
    It may be your camera pic, how come you did not center the signs between the ceiling and the slotboards?

    You started me down the road of taking a closer look at them. Now that you pointed it out it's obvious how ****ed up the photos are now.

    It's like the photos sag on the left side...and not even. Look at the tile at the bottom.. it's like somewhere in the middle it suddenly veers down to the left... and goes up at the top

    First of all, you're relying on your wide angle setting...... completely out too much for the equipment you're using. It simply can't handle it.

    Also, it would help if you held your camera straight

    What do you expect from a camera phone, they are smaller than a dime. They are just made for selfies and pics to put on Instagram.

    Drawing is not your forte. Photography is probably out of the question as well.

    I got an old Galaxy s4 Zoom I picked up off the ebay about a year ago. It takes some great pictures at 16mp, has an optical zoom up to 10x, crappy wifi but at least I can email pics straight from the device, but the best part is when the guys show up on site and realize the batteries are dead, they can plug it in and charge it.
