CNET News Video: The best way to take a group picture

0:54 /

The person who carries the camera is the one who never gets his photo taken. It's a classic problem, but one that's now easily corrected with a new iPhone app called Groopic. In this Tech Minute, CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports on how it works and how it could be a photographer's best friend.

Instead of settling for a selfie or asking a complete stranger to take your group's picture, download the 99-cent app, Groupic, onto your iPhone. It's coming soon to Androids. Groupic is an easily used app that lets two photographers swap out so everyone can pose in the same photo. The key to this app working well is composition. Leave enough room on one side for the original photographer. So, take the first photo, swap out photographers, follow the ghost image overlay to align the two shots and pose the original photographer. The app will then ask you to tap on the images of the two photographers so it can seamlessly stitch the photo together. Within seconds, you have a realistic group photo where everyone is included. In San Francisco, I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET.com for CBS News.
