    Rick – Great tip using the diffuser for taking the portrait shot. It was good seeing the difference in the shots and I would like to make a request. When using video to provide a tip can you do a final shot that places both pictures on the screen at the same time so the differences are highlighted. Essentially placing them side by side? We can’t flip them back and forth easily like you can on your iPhone app but not as easy with the video. Very cool app by the way!
