How to Stop iPhone HDR from Saving Multiple Photos Automatically

Prevent iPhone HDR from automatically saving two photos to the Camera Roll and eating up a lot of storage on your iOS device by following this simple trick.

I like to snap HDR (High Definition Range) photos as they look a lot better than the normal ones. Perfectly blending the best parts of the three separate exposures, HDR captures stunners; without any doubt. By default, it saves both the enhanced version and regular photo to your Camera Roll. What if you want to stop HDR from saving multiple photos automatically on your iPhone?

You can easily prevent HDR from saving the typical photo to your library and allow it to keep only the enhanced version of the picture. Obviously, there is no point in saving the duplicate images and clutter the Camera Roll as well as the valuable iCloud storage.  Let’s find out how it’s done!
