Taking pictures on the Galaxy tab

Most tablets have either one or two cameras on them, one facing you and one facing away.  The one facing away is normally the one which can produce better quality.

A picture taken on a tablet is taken digitally and then stored on your tablet.  You can then view it, do some basic editing and send it somewhere else such as to your computer, to a friend or to online storage, such as google drive or Flickr.

Digital images can be stored or saved in a number of ways, but your tablet will store them as “raster” images.

How to take pictures

You can also have your tablet automatically synchronise your photos with your Google + account.

Google+ is a social network that builds off of your Google Account. If you have a Google Account, you can activate your Google+ account as easily as you would activate Google Now. At first, it seems about the same as Facebook or Twitter, importing contacts and assigning them to circles — Google+’s version of lists. After that, you can add curated circles for your particular interests, entertainment, news, sports, etc. That said, the first big difference is that Google+ isn’t reliant on any of those real-life contacts you import. Google+ is for: connecting you to other people who are interested in your passions, rather than a place to share personal family and friends type information.
