Lytro Foreground Image

When you use a Lytro camera, you are taking a "living picture". That means that you can shift the focus after you take the picture, both in the camera (on the touch screen) or on your computer desktop with the Lytro software. You can also convert the image to a series of jpgs, but the jpg is a static image and can no longer switch back and forth. To maintain the living picture, you must upload it to the Lytro website or keep it on your computer. You can also share on Facebook but I haven't tried that and don't know if you have the ability to shift back and forth. Tomorrow I will tell you the drawbacks of this camera as I have seen them.

I like this and I sure see the difference. Same image but shifted - not two images?

@cdonohoue No, it is the same image.

Love this, Allison. Very interesting ... I know that I like the background blurred best. But both are beautiful and it's an interesting feature to be able to shift the focus back and forth. Must be kind of fun.

That is so cool Allison, a very interesting concept.

I think this technology will eventually have a huge impact on photography and will be incorporated into all of it. I don't think it's the all in all, but it is a game changer. Very cool.

Amazing comparison. I like this one the best and it really caught my eye when I clicked to view the photo. Wow! Very cool!

Thanks for taking the time to explain this. I am sure it is tricky to get used to.
