"Budapest, Hungary-based photographer Sarolta Bán has been busy at work on her recent project, Help Dogs with Images. One photo at a time, Bán is on a mission to increase visibility of the many exisiting sheltered animals in need of homes. Via her Facebook page, the photographer is asking people to send her photos of dogs—and cats or other animals, she says—and she will create photo montages from them, Photoshopping animals in majestic and fantastically splendid settings far from their current ones. She then shares the reimagined photos along with info and location of the animal with her almost 150,000 Facebook fans. So far, Bán has received over 300 images to get to work on. As an extra nudge, future owners will receive a free print of their adopted animal. The project continues through June 30th, 2014." -Amanda Gorence

We’re proud to release a totally re-built Android presentation App today, free for all portfolio account levels. The App is designed to display your image and video portfolios on your Android phone and tablet. As with Dripbook’s iPhone + iPad presentation App, the Android presentation App downloads all your images and videos and stores them in the memory of your phone or tablet so that you can present your portfolio even when you don’t have internet access.
Features of Dripbook’s Android presentation App include :
• The App downloads high resolution images so you can zoom in for detail
• The App downloads HD video so your videos look sharp
• The App works even if you don’t have an internet connection - images and video are downloaded and stored locally on your Android phone or tablet so that the App can work even if the internet is spotty or non-existent
• Perfect for portfolio reviews in any location
• The App can be synchronized with your Dripbook account whenever you have internet access
• Share images via email, Facebook, Twitter, text messaging and more
What’s new with this update :
• The App now downloads video portfolios as well as image portfolios for offline display
• App re-built for Android version 4+ devices
• New tablet layout
• Larger key images and thumbnail images
• Faster performance
Things to keep in mind about this App :
• The App downloads a lot of data the first time you use it, so if you don’t have unlimited cellular data, it’s a good idea to use Wifi the first time you load up the App
• The App synchronizes changes with your Dripbook account manually - select “Refresh” from the upper right menu while viewing your portfolio overview to check for updates.
Many thanks to the talented and tenacious C. Enrique Ortiz for his Android developement skills (and for being fun and nice).
"These photos are part of a personal project photographing the people of the Paradise Valley in Montana. I have always been attracted to the landscape of Montana but really wanted to focus on the people and their interaction with the landscape. It was a true pleasure meeting all these amazing people who let me into their lives, for a few minutes to a few hours." -Jason Lindsey
