Camera or hand shake are the most common cause of blurry photos, long exposure needs slower shutter speed, this is happened when your subject have inadequate light, and during this process, the camera sensor/shutter is open, causing the resulting photo to be blurry, because even a single movements of your camera or hand will cause the camera sensor to move, that causes a blurry capture. In order not to experience this, you have to be familiar with the setting of your camera, there are 3 important settings you have to understand: ISO Setting, Shutter Speed, and the Aperture Setting, they are related with each other. ISO Setting, is the sensitivity of your camera to light, meaning the higher the ISO, the more sensitive your camera in light, and the more sensitive, the faster your shutter speed. ISO scale from 100, 200, 400, and so on, depends on the cameras specs. Shutter speed, is the speed of the opening and closing of the camera's curtain( e.g. 1/30, 1/60 of a sec....and so on) and Aperture is the opening size of your lens focal points (the lower the f, the wider the opening: f1.4, f1.8, f2.0, f2.8, f3.5, f5.6, f8, f11, f16, f22, f32
I hope this will be helpful.

How do l turn off facial recognition on iPad Air?

If you are using a jailbreak application for facial biometric security as a pass code like recognizeMe, then you should also be able to use a 4 digit back up method which is a requirement in case the facial recognition fails.

You could also try to get a picture of your daughter and hold it up to get an OAuth.

finally, if those do not work, plug in your iPad and hope it auto connects to wifi, it will perform a backup of data and apps to the cloud. Put the iPad in DFU mode, tethered to a computer and perform a system restore.

Try getting in to the user account to see whether there is any other users. If there is, try to log in to that username by logging out of your account first.

I don't know how to use the finger recognition on my toshiba satellite , please help

Hello there!

Take note that for security-minded individuals, some Toshiba laptops can feature a fingerprint reader. This is incredibly more secure than facial recognition. You are the only person the world with your fingerprints. As long as you keep all your fingers on your hands, using the fingerprint reader is a secure way to logon to your laptop. A fingerprint reader is accurate and almost impossible to deceive, unlike facial recognition software. The convenience offered by the Toshiba fingerprint reader does not add any security risks. You can simply place a finger on the reader and access your user account.

There is several ways on how to set it up and it depends on the model. May I ask, what is the model of your Toshiba laptop?
