The app is pleasantly simple. You just load an image into the app and select your character set, font and colour settings, a background and a filter, and your image is bludgeoned with Claude Monet’s typewriter ribbon. You also choose which letters are used in the image, letting you add a touch of subliminal impression on top of the art style. [iTunes via Petapixel]

Video. Photographer Levon Biss takes such incredibly detailed pictures of insects (most smaller than 1cm) that he can blow up his insect portraits to nearly 3m in size. It's a treat to see him work. And there is just so much work involved in photographing each insect. He lights each specific section of the bug (antennas, eyes and so on) and photographs them individually so that every part will look its best. Because he uses a microscopic lens to capture the detail in each bug, he has to take thousands of photos to make up for its shallow depth of field. His final images are made up of 8000-10,000 photographs. Incredible.
