India Art Festival (IAF), a big gala of world’s art, was held at Thyagaraj Stadium in New Delhi on November 22–25. The grand event attracted over 500 artists from 40 cities through its 35 art galleries. The even displayed all kind of arts: painting, sculptures, photography, ceramics, textiles and installations from rural India to metro cities.

The event, which is conducted by the publishers of Indian Contemporary Art Journal, was first held in 2011.

The focus of this year’s event was the work and performance of 100 independent artists from cities like Chennai, Jammu, Tripura and Ahmedabad. The independent artists include mid-career, established as well as emerging artists.

IAF also offered a venue for budding artists to showcase their talent.

Rajendra, the director of India Art Festival, said: “The art scene in Delhi has become event-driven, with bigger art events drawing in more crowds than solo or group exhibitions in individual art galleries. Economical art fairs – in terms of participation cost – are easy for exhibitors to take part in and recover basic participation cost, hence they participate every year. Almost 90% of art galleries and 60% of artists are repeat participants in India Art Festival; this growth is phenomenal in such trying times.”

Art festival like IAF offers a unique opportunity for artists and connoisseurs alike to create and appreciate new works of art.

Hi there,


Thank you for visiting PICANTE News and thank you reading my articles!


I have been writing articles and explaining reports in several industries for well over a decade or so. This is why I pride myself as one of the few survivors left in the world who have actually mastered the impossible art of copy editing. During my education phase I've graduated in Physics and obtained my Master’s degree in Communication and Journalism.


Although I usually focus on social and political news, I have some favorite topics that always make me happier. These topics include writing about sports events and travel writing.


During my career I've have written for numerous websites and my in-depth analytical articles have been highlighted in top sports magazines like Cricket Today and Sports Today. Besides reporting several social, education and wordwide community releated headlines from all around the globe, I am also head of the content management team at Impressions Content Management, based in Kerala, India.


You can find my articles and editorials in the following categories:


CHARITY, COMMUNITY, EDUCATION, ENVIRONMENT, ECONOMY, BRAND AND MARKETING, CAMPAIGNS, HUMAN RESOURCE/WORKFORCE, HOLIDAYS, CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY, INSURANCE, and many more.

New Krome Family Studio Changes Backgrounds, Adds & Deletes Items, & More Quickly & Affordably

 

If you’re looking for a way to turn ho-hum mobile or other digital family photos into images as crisp and creative as if they came from a professional photo shoot, meet Krome Family Studio – a phone/web app that puts a real photo studio in your pocket.  The service provides photo editing, optional background changes, and imaginative design concepts recommended and executed by Krome’s team of trained design directors in hours – from color-correcting to swapping the setting from a family kitchen to an outdoor landscape that makes the photo pop.

The company announced the newest Family Studio offering at this week’s Visual 1st conference in San Francisco, expanding a service that has already processed more than 1 million images for over 150,000 customers. Per-photo prices range from $3-$12. Photo packs are also available for $10, $20 and $30/month for two, five and seven photos, plus other benefits like free re-edits.

Simply upload photos from your phone or computer, and either let Krome’s designers make a recommendation, browse Krome’s Family Gallery of completed customer images or Krome Lookbooksof themed ideas ranging from back-to-school to prom and holiday for inspiration, or submit a custom request. Krome’s designers can:

  • Adjust colors, light and balance (turn amateur images into studio-quality gems)
  • Swap heads (replace the one frowning face in the family photo with that family member’s smiling image from another shot on your camera roll)
  • Merge multiple images (combine individual snapshots of each child into one photo, or add a missing person to a group photo)
  • Remove or add objects (delete photo bombs or other unwanted items from the background, and/or add birthday balloons, names or other props of your choice)
  • Change backgrounds (transport your baby to a beautiful field, the Grand Canyon or the moon)

The finished picture-perfect photos can be posted on social media or personal blogs, used for holiday cards or evites, printed as keepsakes at services from Zazzle and Shutterfly to Minted and FreePrints, and/or framed for gifts or wall display. Just tell Krome what size you need, and it’s a done deal.

“Every family picture tells a story, whether it’s a candid child or pet photo or a milestone like a new baby, a birthday or a high school graduation. But most people aren’t professional photographers, and the images they capture frequently need a little more work,” said Krome CEO Eduardo Lach. “Krome Family Studio transforms any mobile snapshot into beautiful and magical moments frozen in time. It’s like having your own personal photo editor/designer on call 24 hours a day.”

Krome offers the same editing and creative design services for businesses with Krome Business Studio, providing studio-quality images for use in e-commerce, social media, advertising and marketing. Prices begin at $5 per photo or $35/month for four advanced design images per month.

Krome Family Studio is available as an iOS and Android app as well as on the web at www.kromephotos.com.
