Playback Screens & Menus

By Matt Metzker

Note: please excuse the quality of these images, the TL240 does not output video using a standard AV cable therefore we had to photograph the LCD.

Pressing the Play/Review button brings up the last image/video captured or viewed in full screen mode with minimal data overlaid. Using the "left" and "right" icons on the screen will scroll through your stored images, or you can tip the camera left or right. To control the amount of overlay information, you simply press monitor icon at the bottom left of the frame to show Basic or Full info as well as to Hide all.

The Motion menu is also available in playback mode, and will start a slide show, protect and image from deletion, or mark a photo as a favorite.

Here you can see the Edit menu that offers these options: Resize, Rotate, Photo Style Selector, Image adjust, Special Effect, and Face Effect.

Pressing the wide angle zoom control brings up the thumbnail index mode, here you can search through the stored images, and select one for full screen playback. We found that the index was slow and took longer than average time to load up. You can also filter images by date, type, color, week, favorite, or even faces, and use the bar along the bottom to search through them. Pressing the Icon that is directly above the bar (labeled Date in the screens above) allows you to choose the filter type.

While an image is displayed full screen you can magnify it by pressing the telephoto zoom control. Once magnified you can scroll around inside of it by touching the 4-way arrows on the LCD. You can enlarge up to 13.5x in several steps, depending on the image size mode being used. While magnified, a small box is displayed in the upper right of the LCD, indicating the area of the image that is enlarged. On the top left you can see controls to Delete or Trim a photo.

Movie clips are played back full screen. You have options to rewind, pause, stop or fast-forward a movie. Once you pause a movie, you can Capture a still frame from the video. The still frame will be saved at the same resolution as the video (1280x720, 640x480 or 320x240).

Playback menu options:

  • Smart Album - Single, 9 or 16
  • Delete - Select file or All
  • Protect - save files from deletion
  • Recycle Bin - Off, On, or Retrieve
  • Voice memo - Add a voice note to an image
  • DPOF - Set the direct print settings
  • Copy to Card - Copy files from internal memory to the memory card
  • Gesture View - Enable or disable the ability to "draw" on the LCD to sort files, rotate, delete, etc.  


samsung_tl225_play_face_index.jpgHere you can see the face list option, where the camera displays the faces that have been captured using the Face Recognition system. You can also prioritize faces when you use the "My Star" option in record mode. This allows you to capture your "stars" face from different angles, and then you can enter the menu above to set priority to their faces. This will cause the camera to set exposure and focus priority to your "star's" face with in the frame, even if they are not the center or "main" subject. 


samsung_tl240_play_edit_pss.jpgThe above screens show the options available when you select the Photo Style Selector option from the edit menu. You can use a filter to change the look of a picture already taken.


samsung_tl240_play_smart_filters_anim.gifThere are also a series of Smart Filters that can change the look of your pictures. These filters can be applied to images already taken, or you can set the filter to effect a picture you are about to take.
