    Serious question: What is the deal with photo manipulation these days?
    1. No one seems to leave a photo alone. Always taking pictures with a filter or applying one after the fact. This tells me at least one thing- the art of photography is gone.
    2. All these apps do is make it so that no one needs to learn anything. It’s all canned stuff.. which on one hand is neat, in that anyone can do it, but on the other hand, again, it means no one has to learn anything. Shouldn’t people learn how to actually accomplish something rather than relying on someone else to do it for them?

    The human race is set on a course for failure, and even as minuscule or unimportant as photo manipulation apps seem, they are in fact another tooth on the gear in the machine.

      ? I usually leave my photos alone and use these apps if i have to adjust the exposure or colors. A lot of times these colors don’t match how they looked in reality so I edit them to become more accurate.

        I have a lot of photo editing apps but I rarely use them
        I do take a lot of good pictures with my iPhone 6 plus
        For automatic adjustment google photos is the best

    • Serious question: What is the deal with computers these days?

      No one seems to like doing work on their trusty abacus. The way things were meant to be.

      “Shouldn’t people learn how to actually accomplish something”

      Yeah, they should, why can’t they use that camera phone like a DSLR? What’s wrong with them yo?
