Every time I take a picture now with my phone it says refining picture and it wont go away unless I restart the device. Every single time. What's causing this

Hey, 

@Th3Awak3ning

I'm thinking you might try to wipe the system cache partition. It frequently clears up issues that show up after a system update and in general daily use.

@Charkatak has a really good suggestion. Clearing the Apps cache and data has helped me out more than a few times.

You might also open the camera app settings and reset them all to their default settings.

I hope these suggestions are helpful. 

Best regards, 

CLF

    It can stop only one time but it keeps happening when you open the camera app and take picture again. This is ridiculous

Check the settings to make sure the camera is not listed as an optimized app. You can use the following article to locate apps that are optimized and remove it from there. Let me know if the message returns. Optimize Apps' Battery Usage on a Phone

I've done this 2 times and it has not worked for me.  I completely reset my phone and it still hasn't worked.  Just so you know that when you delete data, it will erase all your photos so make sure you back up to theCloud first!  I hope they fix it in the next update.  I can't take a picture without it doing this everytime! Screenshot_20191031-160538_Chrome.jpg

Please remove the "Solved" notation, NOTHING recommended here is a permanent solution. It's been happening to me as well since the most recent update. The first time I noticed it, it had been going on for over FOUR HOURS! Please get word to the appropriate team to fix this!

Just to verify, have you completed all of the steps included in this article? http://seektogeek.com/s10-keeps-showing-refining-picture-and-camera-keeps-crashing-on-samsung-s10/

 

If the troubleshooting steps have been completed and you are still seeing the messaging, please send a private message with the full model code and IMEI number of the phone. http://bit.ly/2XERsky
