Hi Maria,
Thanks for your questions about your Canon G7x and the camera setting you accidentally set on your camera. It's hard to tell from the photo, but it appears that you set the aspect ratio to a 1:1 setting, meaning you set it to take photos with a square format.

That will be easy for you to fix. Look in your G7X manual for "aspect ratio. You should be able to easily find the step by step instructions for setting the aspect ration with your Canon G7X.

You can try this link if you don't have your manual: G7X Aspect Ratio. Please let me know if this is what you've encountered and if this was helpful to you.

Thanks so much,
