LETTER-writer Mark Walker makes a snide comment regarding the lack of photos of Flight 77 crashing into the Pentagon on 9/11 by pointing out how clear the security-camera photos of a shoplifting incident at a local Sears are. Because the crashes in New York were well photographed, it seems odd to some that Flight 77's crash into the Pentagon was not equally well photographed. Consider that we have no photos of the Titanic actually hitting an iceberg, so why do we accept that as fact?

ITHINK THE Daily News crossed a line in printing photos of arrested "johns. " First, many of the johns in your paper had merely been arrested, not found guilty. Arrests in any sting are often problematic. Suppose some of these men are innocent? Where do they go to get their reputations back? Second, this is a summary offense, not a felony, so why the big deal? You often don't publish the photos of felons. Are you trying to raise circulation? Or to serve the paper's feminist leanings?

Conventional portrait photography is condescended to by the art world. So in the three-artist, portrait-photography exhibit at Abington Art Center, don't expect to see anything remotely conventional. The approach in this show, titled Mortal Terrain, is much more indirect and subtle. Only one of the artists, David Freese, shows work you might recognize as portraiture at all. And go figure how the large painted images by Tracey Howard ever could have started out as photographs. This is another example of a display format favored by neighborhood art centers with increasing regularity - several mini-solo exhibits held to spotlight promising and diverse regional talent.

Multimedia is all about sounds and pictures and movement and interaction. The following CD-ROMs have their share of those - but the emphasis this week clearly is on pictures. "LEARNING TO SEE CREATIVELY" AND "UNDERSTANDING EXPOSURE" DiAMAR Interactive $79.95 each (with book) or $59.95 each (without) Windows & Mac A beautiful photograph appears on your computer screen. "Wow!" you say. "I wish I could take a picture that nice!" Five seconds later you discover the photo you liked so much is the "before" of a "before-and-after" set. Yes, even Bryan Peterson's "bad" pictures are great.

The national, juried photography show that the Painted Bride Art Center has organized as part of the "Voices of Dissent" festival marking the 200th anniversary of the Constitution is a poignant reminder that artists throughout our nation's history have asserted their right to free speech by means of their art. Many such images have cried out against injustice. No matter how certain these photographers are that their pictures carry special meaning in the context of this show, what always matters most is the artistry itself.

For reasons still unknown, Patricia McDermott was targeted by her killer, who followed her off a bus in Center City before dawn Tuesday, shot her in the head, then ran off into the still-dark morning, Philadelphia police said yesterday. Investigators released grainy, blurred photos culled from surveillance tapes of the suspect and of McDermott's last moments. Police also released a composite sketch of a "person of interest" they are seeking in the killing. The man in the sketch - an African American or Latino with a light to medium complexion and wearing a baseball cap, a light-colored jacket, faded dungarees, and dark sneakers - fits the description of the killer as seen on camera.

WHY PAY six digits for pictures of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie frolicking in the Kenyan surf when . . . you can just pretend. Haven't you ever heard of Photoshop? The Star has, that's why the mag saved its money on the real photos and merely doctored two separate oceanside pictures of each actor. The issue proclaims, "Brad & Angelina: Caught Together! On Vacation. " But tucked away on page 8 is a disclaimer noting the image is a "composite of two photographs. " Us Weekly won the bidding war for the actual pics, purchasing them from London-based photo agency Big Pictures for a reported $500,000.

Name: Avast Photo Space - cloud photo storage What it does: The Photo Space app takes your original high-quality, heavily weighted photos and, with your permission, uploads them to cloud services Dropbox or Google Drive (you will need accounts for those in advance). Then it optimizes your photos so you still have a lower-weighted copy on your phone. After they are uploaded and optimized, it asks your permission to delete the original photos from your phone, releasing the storage space.
