AI Painting Finally Auctioned for Stunning $432,500 by Christie’s


The much-hyped piece of art created by an AI artist has been auctioned off by Christie’s for an astounding $432,500. The artwork, named the Portrait of Edmond Belamy, is the first such painting to be auctioned off by the venerable 252-year-old institution. And more astonishing than the final bid price is that the painting was expected to be sold for between $7,000 and $10,000.

Google Photos’ Live Albums Feature is Limited to 10,000 Images


Google Photos’ Live Albums feature allows users to add photos of select people or their pet to a separate album. It has now been revealed that Live Albums has a limit of 10,000 photos, and once that mark is reached, more photos can’t be added to the library.

In case you want to add more photos to Live Albums, you have to delete older images to make space for the new ones. As for shared albums, each participant can add 10,000 photos until the 20,000 limit is reached.

Users have reported that once their Live Albums touches the 10,000 mark, they see a ‘Live Album paused’ message if they try to add any more photos.
