    Google is doing some weird shit with their photo processing

    I have a Pixel 7a. I’ve been using it since May 2023 and I’ve noticed selfies taken with this phone were a bit odd. In some pics it looks like I’m photoshopped into the scene rather than a natural photo. Today I think I pinned it down. It’s a combination of processing and Top Shot.…

    I finally ditched my Pixel 3 for the shiny new Pixel 7a. The switch came at a fortuitous time because I bricked my Pixel 3 by dropping it in a stream while hiking. It’s not the only reason I made the change. It so happened I purchased the Pixel 7 the day before I went…
