Originally posted on Charlotte Christine Photography:
From my previous post about smartphone photography, I briefly touched upon a couple of pros and cons to using your phone for your photography when you happen to be without you DSLR.
In this post, I am going to share with you in-depth the apps and editing I go through when I have shot some images on my iPhone that I want to use for either social media or reference for when I can use my DSLR at a later date.

Depending on which iPhone you have will of course effect how good an image you will be able to capture.
Older versions of the iPhone models will offer downgraded megapixel quality as well as older versions of the apps available and the running system.
Some apps will become redundant on older versions and won’t be available for…

Saoirse reviews The Pearl Gallery in the New Orleans sim:
I was taking in the sites of the fabulously designed virtual New Orleans riding the St. Charles streetcar, smartly named “Desire”, when I came upon The Pearl gallery.
This gallery is New Orleans style tall ceilings and welcoming atmosphere, croissants and coffee at the door. The pieces inside captured my attention with their miscellany of expressions. At first glance, the personal aspect of these pieces may be missed amid the colors and distinct variations of images. I mention this first so you will take the moment to look deeply into these images after you see them the first time. “Gossamer Soul” has a texture of rough sandstone which made me recall the aspects of brutalist architecture. This was a movement in architecture from the 1950s and 1970s, the term “brutal” derived from the French béton brut, or “raw concrete” a word coined by Le Corbusier when asked about his material. In Gossamer Soul the roughness of the concrete is in hues of sands, yellows and browns. In SL art it is fascinating to see how artists mix the tactile feeling of an image with the 2D aspects. You can almost hear the sounds of scraping as the concrete element is added and smoothed into the image. This style is present also in a piece titled “Coastal Monument in Red”, scratches from the tools of a cement layer. In “Coastal” I also had the feeling of a heated aspect to the cracks.
The artist moves from the tactile of the New Brutalism to vibrant colors in “Little Dreams”. There are a couple of main images, the artist, a famous castle, and there are underlying images as well. I will not reveal them here, only to write they give us an insight to the personal part of the artist. The images on this piece have an almost holographic aspect to them, hinting at transparency but not giving way to it. Swirling colors entertain the eye with this piece.
The artist has also given us a couple of pieces that have a look of watercolor paints in the color strokes. “God Rest” is one of those pieces with a watercolor aspect. I have a feeling that the artist, Shakita Adored, will be adding more pieces as she completes them. There is a lot of diversity and many varying expressions. To me this means that she is only getting started on what she can develop from her expressions. The Pearl is definitely a little something extra [Lagniappe] for those who visit. Artfully yours, Saoirse Heart

Basilique is a community that Windlight Magazine will be covering soon online, check it out and congrats to the sim owner, Canary Beck for this milestone!

InnocentlyWicked Resident, a 4-week old avatar who describes herself as: “young and I just want to have fun’, surely didn’t imagine she’d be winning Caitlin Tobias’s inventory of poses from her store Pose O’Clock, when she accepted our invitation as Basilique’s 2000th member.
2000 members might not sound like much in comparison to some in world groups out there. Compared to groups solely based on regions however, 2000 is a respectable number and it’s taken years to get to this point. Basilique opened December 26th, 2012 (there’s even a street named after that date, leading up to the Basilique Playhouse – see image below). Back then we had about 30 charter members (friends, mainly) who we personally invited. At first, I experimented with charging a join fee (starting at L$ 1000). Lowering the join fee to L$ 350 made no difference to sign ups. Eliminating the join fee also made no difference. The join fee was never the problem.

DWPhotoworks demonstrates how to create a hand painted effect in your photographs:
Originally posted on DWPhotoworks Blog:
I have always had a fascination for some of those old photographs that had been hand colored or toned to create a soft almost watercolor effect. These were mostly done with black and white images and almost always had that soft pleasing look to them.
I had tried many times to create a soft watercolor look to a few of my images. I have seen some wonderful renditions of others work that mimicked that look very well and envied the artists efforts. In this article I will share my latest technique which isn’t really a true watercolor effect, but presents a sort of modern art pencil and watercolor sketch.
After selecting your image, and opening it in your version of Photoshop, create a duplicate layer as always. The tool that is used for this technique is the popular plug-in from Topaz Labs ( www.topazlabs.com ) called Simplify.
