What is "Selfie photo mirror"

I am using Moto G4 Plus on Android 6.0.1.

I am using the latest version of Moto Camera, i.e., Version 6.0.43.10.

 

When using the front facing camera, there is an option called "Selfie photo mirror". I have no idea what this does. I took a picture with and without it, and I saw no difference.

 

I contacted Motorola on a few occasions, and they had no idea what it does or what I was even talking about.

 

Please check out for yourself and get back to me. If I had to take a wild guess, it's a feature that only works on other Moto phones?

This option is for making you selfie photos look more good which will look like the picture you take by rear cameras. You can just check this out by taking a selfie by switching that option off and on 

 

Note: this only works when you are using front camera

 

Hope you got the solution

Hmm... well I did in fact try it out on and off and they look the same. From the info of both images it's telling me that they're both the same exact stats. Same 1.2 MB, same MP, same ISO, everything.

 

Edit: Are you sure this feature works for Moto G4 Plus?

Re: What is "Selfie photo mirror"

Okay I see what you mean. However, it works sometimes and it doesn't work sometimes...

 

Edit:

 

You see, I believe I found a glitch in the app. If I take two pictures back to back, while changing the settings in between shots, it will not change the setting and both images will be the same. I hope they can fix this.

 

Edit 2:

 

I just found another weird glitch. I took a selfie with me showing hi5 with the "Selfie photo mirror" turned off, and when I swipe left from the Camera app to view the last picture I took, it will show my picture the right way and then a second later it will flip!

Extremely sorry for misunderstanding! It was you telling about changing...! But mostly the setting selfie mirror is on it makes the image looks good

 

Which post you felt that your questions is solved! Please mark it solved!

this option is to mirror your pictures, for example, if you took a pic and behind you on your RIGHT there's a wall painting, if the option is ON the painting will be on your LEFT, if it OFF, the painting will be still on your RIGHT as it's hanged on the wall

Thank you. That's what I initially thought even before I tried it. The app is glitchy and so it sometimes wont even mirror my selfie. Motorola seriously needs to work on updating their apps. The Moto Camera hasn't been updated since August 26.
