Wedding Portrait Photos is a glorified photo gallery app that doesn't offer many tips or tricks at all -- just a nice collection of wedding photos. Making matters worse, less than half of the app's photos are unlocked in the free version.
Instead of the posing guide you might expect, this app is just a gallery of wedding photos from one photographer. There are six sub-galleries in all, four of which are locked behind a paywall. That means the app offers only 60 pictures for you to see. They're all romantic shots in high resolution, but there'… Read more
Upon first launching the app, you're immediately given the option to use a demo photo. The demo photos are portraits of individuals who may have exposed blemishes, hair on their faces, freckles or some other attribute that can be removed through the app.
I suggest starting with a demo photo, as it gives you a … Read more
Chances are you've taken one or two (or a dozen) selfies in your day. And if you're like the majority of selfie-snappers, your digital self-portraits have probably involved pointing a smartphone at yourself and hoping you manage to capture both your nose and mouth in the same frame.
Then there's Alexander Porter, who took a selfie involving a digital 3D scan of his face, unfurled in pastel moving images like a pillowey landscape canvas.
He's one of 19 emerging artists whose short-form videos engaging with the "selfie" medium appear in the "National #Selfie Portrait Gallery," a curated installation that opened Thursday at the Moving Image Contemporary Video Art Fair in London. … Read more
"Another Self-Portrait (1969-1971)" is the 10th Bob Dylan Bootleg Series release. I've been a big fan of the series since it started way back in 1991, and this new Bootleg is one of the very best.
The original "Self Portrait" wasn't a high point in the Dylan oeuvre, but over the years I've come to take it on its own terms. Arriving just a few years after Dylan was at his creative zenith as a songwriter, "Self Portrait" was mostly a collection of old and obscure cover tunes, with a smattering … Read more
This is a story about a man and his butt. And a second man, whose Facebook profile photo has found a permanent home on the first man's butt.
What's more, the first man has never met the second man, which means the first man's butt now hosts a portrait of a total stranger. (And no, I don't know who's on third.)

Samsung is planning to bring a television to the Consumer Electronics Show that looks, well, see-through.
On its blog yesterday, the technology company posted an image of a television that's sitting vertically instead of horizontally. The set also appears to be sitting on a landscape in which the viewer can look through the display to see what's behind it.
Samsung was slim on details, and only had this to say about the set: "A true innovation of TV design is coming up with an unprecedented new TV shape and timeless design."
It may not beat Photoshop, but Aviary is still one of the most comprehensive photo editors available for Android. What's more, it's incredibly simple to use.
From the get-go, Aviary makes it simple to edit your photos, as it opens up directly to a carousel of all the saved images on your device. From here, you can swipe through your photos straight away or go to your photo gallery and make your selection that way. Otherwise, the app also gives you the option to take a new photo to import into the editor.
Once you make your selection, … Read more
Popular apps like Instagram spit out highly stylized images, but what do you do when you simply want a portrait to look nicer? I put Portrait Professional 10, a $39.95 automated airbrushing software package for Windows and Mac, through its paces.
I dug through my photo archives, looking for portraits in need of some TLC. My top candidate turned out to be the fortune teller animatronic from an antique machine at Tinkertown in New Mexico.
The fortune teller suffers from an overwhelming makeup job, lots of wrinkles, and a ruddy complexion with visible pores. Time for some magic.… Read more
