WhatsApp : How to Create, Edit, Delete WhatsApp Status Update

You can now add photos or videos as WhatsApp Status updates
You can upload multiple images or clips as updates
The updates all disappear after 24 hours
On Friday, as WhatsApp turns eight, it has also unleashed a cool
new feature that seems to be pointing to a future where the app
moves away from text messages, and relies much more heavily on
photosand short videos - the ephemeral status update. This newest
feature from the Facebook owned messaging company bears more
than a passing resemblance to social rival Snapchat, and the update
hasn't just added a new tab for the status in the menu on top of your
screen, but also a camera button right in the middle of things,
which can be used to update your status, or a contact, or group.
It's an exciting change, and it's really straightforward too, but in case
you have any doubts about how to use the feature, here's what you
need to know about the revampedWhatsApp Status updates.
What happened to my old text WhatsApp status?
You mean the line which most people completely ignored, leaving it
on the default "Hi there, I'm using WhatsApp"? Well, that's gone.
Put the past behind you.According to some people the old text status
is still visible, but it's gone for the most of us, so try restarting the app
if you're still  seeing the old status. Rumour has it that it will make
a comeback underthe name of WhatsApp ‘taglines’ but that’s for
another day.
How can I set a photo or video as my WhatsApp status?
There are a couple of different ways to create a WhatsApp status
you can do.Let's look at them.
How to create a WhatsApp Status using the Status option:
1.Open WhatsApp.
2.Tap on Status.
3.Tap on My Status. If you've already got a status, tap the little circle
    with a + sign on the top right.
4.Take a photo by pressing the shutter button, or hold the button for a
    video.Or select one from the camera roll at the bottom of the screen.
5.Add a caption if you want by tapping on Add a caption, and then tap
   on the Send icon at the bottom right.
6.You can tap on it to view, or press the menu button on the right side
   to check how many people have seen the update, or to forward it.
   Tap on the eye icon to see the names of the people.
7.The WhatsApp status will disappear in 24 hours.

Here is another method to create a WhatsApp Status:
Open WhatsApp.
1.Tap the camera icon on the top left.
2.Take a photo or video, or select one from the camera roll.
3.Add a caption if you want. Tap the green tick to finalise.
4.Next you can either send it to a contact, or select My status to
   update your status.Tap the Send icon at the bottom right.
5.You can now go to the Status tab to see your status, as above.
I messed up, how do I delete my WhatsApp Status?

Made a mistake? Don't worry about it, you can easily delete
these updates.This is how you can delete your WhatsApp Status:
Open WhatsApp obviously.
Go to the Status tab. Scroll to find the status you want to delete.
Tap on the eye icon that shows how many people have seen status.
This will show a list of the people who viewed your status.
Tap the trash icon, and tap Delete to confirm.

There doesn't seem to be a way to delete multiple WhatsApp Status
updates in one go though, so don't mess up too much!
How do I edit privacy settings of WhatsApp Status?

You can set it so that only specific WhatsApp contacts can see your
status,or you can make a list of contacts who can't see these,
or set it to show to all your contacts.
This is how you can change the privacy settings of WhatsApp Status:
1.Once again, naturally, open WhatsApp.
2.Go to Status and tap on the Three dots menu icon on the top right,
   and tap on Status privacy.
3.Alternatively, you can tap on the menu button in the main chats screen
   and open Settings > Account > Privacy > Status.
4.There are three options here, My contacts, which is all your contacts;
   My contacts except.., which lets you pick contacts to exclude; and
Only share with..,which lets you pick contacts to share with.
And that's it, you're done, that's all you need to know about WhatsApp
Status updates.To know about more things, do check out our How
to section, and tell us what you think about this new feature, or ask
us your questions via the comments below.

Shoot like a pro: 5 tips for getting better photos from phone

Most of the phones nowadays come with fairly cool cameras. Even the relatively affordable smartphones like the Moto G4 Plus and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 pack in stellar cameras. Then there is the usage. Most of the photos clicked with smartphones are used on sites like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, sites that mostly host low-resolution photos. Hence, even if your phone's camera can't match the performance of the DSLR camera, that is fine. You anyway don't need that kind of performance. However, what you do need is a little bit of extra care while clicking your photos.

Now, there are a number of things you can do to ensure that the photos that you take out of your phone are nice enough to get some cool likes on Instagram or Twitter. But here are five tips that are easy to follow and easier to apply. Just use them and you will see that the photos you are clicking with your phone are better and sharper.

  • Touch to focus

Phone cameras nowadays come with auto focus feature. This means as soon as a phone sees a face in the photo or an object that has enough contrast to standout in the frame, it will focus on that. this will ensure that your subject is right in the focus. But just like every other thing auto, the auto focus too may miss out the big picture. So, it is always prudent to tap on the area of the frame that you want sharpest in the photo. As soon as you touch an area in the frame, the camera will refocus. This trick works particularly great for macro photos.
Keep it steady
Holding the phone steady is the single biggest method to get better photos from your phone. Although the phone companies make big claims about how fast the cameras are in their phones, in reality it is different. The phone cameras, even those in the high-end phones are slow compared to regular cameras. Some are slow to focus while others have slower shutter speed. Also depending on how much light is in the scene, the phone camera may automatically reduce the shutter speed significantly to capture more light. So, it is a good idea to keep the phone steady and aimed at the scene for an extra second or two while clicking photos. Even after the phone shows that the photo has been clicked, keep it steady for 2 more seconds, particularly while shooting low-light scenes. This will increase your chances of getting sharply-focussed photos.

One of the coolest things about smartphones cameras -- something that you don't get even with DSLR cameras -- is the ability to set exposure in a very easy way. Exposure means how much light the camera is going to capture and for good photos it has to be optimal, which means neither more, nor less. Usually, phones set the exposure automatically. But this they do after calculating the light in the entire scene. What if you are clicking a lit signboard on a Friday evening in your favourite pub or a chocolate cake, which is dark brown, on a white table? In these cases, tap on the part of the screen where the subject is located. This will tell the phone to recalculate exposure on the basis of the main subject. See the image above for example. In this scene, the Nexus 6P originally calculated exposure for the whole scene. It saw there was very little light in the scene so it bumped exposure and in the process overexposed the signboard. Tapping on the signboard, however, told it only that particular area of the scene mattered. So, it then re-exposed. The whole image got darker but then the signboard was exposed perfectly.

Good photos have a sort of symmetry to them, some cohesiveness. So, take a look at the scene you are clicking and frame it in a way that makes it look good before you click the image. Now, composing is something that every photographer is going to do differently. This is the creative part in photography. But there are some simple rules that you can use. One of these rules is that you should get up-close, specially for macro photos or portraits. The idea is to fill the frame with subject. Second is avoid capturing too many elements. No clutter in images. Try to ensure that the subject or subjects in your photo stand out. Third is some degree of wholeness, symmetry. The image should feel complete, with no element cut abruptly, although, if you are following some geometrical lines, you can use them to fit in parts of the elements that are otherwise too big to come in the image (see the example above).

  • Use HDR

Although phone makers are still figuring out how to implement HDR mode properly, if you have a phone like the Nexus, which has an excellent HDR mode, you should use that. HDR mode often gives better contrast in images as well as may help you click usable photos in low light. Most of the high-end phones come with auto-HDR mode. Usually, you should leave it at default. But in case, the auto HDR mode is not there in your phone, toggle it manually every time you are shooting low light or high-contrast scenes (sunset for example).
