Professional photographs harness light, subject, and timing to craft a striking image, unlike amateur photographs, which often only manage to capture blurry, red-eyed ghosts. Leave it to the pros with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $60 worth of professional photographs from Pictopia, redeemable online. Tax and shipping are not included.
Pictopia corrals more than half a million archival and fine-art photographs from world-renowned shutterbugs and reputable news sources. Select vibrant pictures from National Geographic, Lonely Planet, Associated Press, New York Public Library, and others, or head to Pictopia's own user-friendly photo galleries filled with images of landscapes, historical events, and extravagant pet weddings. Early risers will delight in An Autumn Morning ($29.95 for a 10" gallery print), a stunning photo of sun-glinted fog blanketing a forest, and animal fans can observe a pair of highland cattle ($34.95 for a 14" gallery print) as they reminisce about their hair-metal days. A stunning print of a fruit-filled floating market in Thailand ($54.95 for a 20" gallery print) makes a great addition to any airborne kitchen. All photos are printed on Fujicolor crystal archive professional matte paper and can be framed for an additional fee. Standard shipping runs $5–$7 on unframed prints and $15–$20 on framed prints.
