Photo Geekery

Gigapixel Photos

I enjoy a nice photo, have been known to dabble in picture taking and have even sold a few photos too.

But what’s better than a photo that stays the same? One that changes, that’s what!

Check out these SUPER hi-resolution photo projects of various places around the world. Pan from side to side, up and down, and make use of the INSANE hi-resolution goodness and zoom in. And then zoom in some more!

Photoshop Transformation Music Video

Photoshop

Photoshop is a great tool, without a doubt, but this French music video highlights the moral implications of its use in society these days. Everyone knows that models and celebrities are ‘Photoshopped’ on the front of magazine covers but I didn’t realise the extent of the tools power. This can be seen in this music video where some French singer warbles on as her face is retouched and transformed from perfectly pretty to a Mila Kunis look-a-like.

I’ve no idea what she is singing about; she could be singing “My face looks so much better Photoshopped” “I worship the power of Adobe” but judging by the tone of the video, I think it’s a statement about how unrealistic and unattainable Photoshop perfection is.

Note: This is not Adobe Photoshop being used in this video. I use the term as readers will generally know of the verb ‘to Photoshop’.
