Photo alignment and scale in third part apps

Nothing really annoying but can be at times. Im noticing on third party apps like Facebook if I set a photo it goes off centre. I was taking a picture of a cheque the other day though my banking app and it literally took me 20 times to get it right because the preview image was totally different to what it was creating?! Difficult to explain but I’m sure I’m not the only person who has got annoyed with this…

The problem you mention is caused by the third-party app that uses your camera app. You should not use this option. It is a long known quality and security issue. It’s convenient but you pay for it with the quality of the photo.
It’s easier to take a picture with the camera app and then select it with the third party app. That is then only one shot and not 20 attempts.
If you search for it on the Internet, you will find some news articles.
