Pictures of myself and Mrs. Chaka as though painted by Modigliani. It's one of the image transformation options on The Face of the Future, a site run by the Computer Science department at St. Andrews University (HT: Dance Dance Revolution World Record Holder DJ Sterf). You can also transform yourself into a different age, a different race, a Manga character, or an Ape-person. My blond beard made it difficult to transform me into anything other than myself, though I do like the El Greco version of me:

Makes me look taller. Anyway, while I'm talking about images, I found out a few months ago about a freely distributed image manipulation program called GIMP. Ableist name aside, it works pretty well for what I need, which is mostly cropping pictures and maybe some color/contrast changes. But it looks like there's a lot more you can do with it.
