IMPORTANT: Deleting pictures is permanent. If you have not already transferred these pictures to the Lytro Desktop software, then they are gone for good.
- Check battery level: Swipe up on the touchscreen. The right-hand icon indicates graphically how much battery charge remains. Tap once to see the exact percentage of battery charge remaining. To dismiss the drawer, tap the center of the screen.
- Check pictures remaining: Swipe up on the touchscreen. The center icon indicates graphically how much internal storage memory remains. Tap once to see the exact remaining percentage of internal storage memory. To dismiss the drawer, tap the center of the screen.
- Switch in and out of Creative Mode: When in shooting mode, the left-hand icon in the Dock activates Creative Mode. You will see this square icon turn blue when Creative Mode is active. There will also be a blue border around the entire screen when shooting in Creative Mode. To dismiss the drawer, tap the center of the screen.
NOTES: The General Control Dock does not offer Creative Mode when you are reviewing pictures on the Lytro camera; instead you are given the option on the left to delete an individual picture. Also, you cannot access the General Control Dock at all while in fast picture review mode; first slide the zoom control or press the shutter to switch modes before accessing the General Control Dock.
TIP: When battery or internal storage memory are running low, a thin red band will appear at the bottom of the touchscreen.
