Setting up your cameras

Before using the Camera grids in Windows, you may need to configure your devices cameras. You do not have to do this when using iOS.

Under Settings – Computer you can find the Devices heading. Here you can use the dropdown boxes to choose your front facing and back facing cameras.

Tip: You can connect many webcams via USB to your device and Grid 3 should support them. If you plug a webcam in, allow Windows to detect the camera, restart Grid 3, and the camera should be available when you are choosing cameras in your Grid 3 settings.

The Change camera cell lets you switch between connected cameras so you can capture
a selfie.

The grid has a row of quick messages that you can browse.

Switch back to your Keyboard to write any additional messages you may have. Selecting Back will return you to the Photos & Camera grid where you can use Add Message to include it in the grid’s quick chat cells.

Taking pictures in Alpha Core

Opening the Photos & Camera grid will display a live feed from your selected camera. Selecting Take photo will capture a picture and save it to your library.

If you want to browse and view photos you have taken select Camera photos. Here you will see your photos arranged in a library. You can jump to your My Pictures folder when you can view other pictures saved to your library (from email attachments for example).

Select any photo to view an enlarged version, with the option to start a slideshow to automatically display all the pictures in that folder, or attach the current photo to an email.
