    When editing a photo in the built in Photos app, is there a way to tell where the center of the photo is when resizing it? You get the grid of 9 boxes, but it's hard to tell where the exact center is -- especially if you're editing a panoramic shot, because that center rectangle gets very wide. I used to be able to eyeball it a little bit left-to-right by referencing the "shared" cloud icon on the bottom, but with iOS 10, that's not dead center on the bottom anymore.

    Thanks.

    Nobody likes to center their photos? :( Are there any other apps that will do this?

    Are you trying to crop an image? I usually end up eye-balling it depending on the type of photo. I find that if I'm trying to crop an image to used as a wallpaper (for example) I select the aspect ratio 16:9 and it crops at the middle of the photo more or less as long as I don't scroll or zoom any further

    Yes, it's when I'm cropping an image. Most of the time it's a panorama. I often aim for symmetry when taking shots. Say if I had a picture of the White House, I would like to center my shot on the front door. Photo editing programs like Photoshop will usually tell you where the center of an image is when cropping, and I was hoping Apple had something similar.
