About Dean Thorpe:
Edited photographs

If only reality could be edited so easily

I love messing around with anything from full software packages to simply apps, one thing I have a thing for editing in particular is Dean Thorpe . . . Me! Not just photos, but that’s a whole other story! lol Anyway I created this page to be a place that I can use to post my favourite manipulated photos of myself. 

I plan to add reviews of apps soon as I often get asked which Android apps in particular I like to use when editing photographs like these. If I am editing photos on my PC then I always use Paintshop Pro 2018, but I have lots of Android apps that I do most of my image manipulation with, some are free, others have small one off or annual fees, my favourites at the time of writing this (November 2018) are probably:

Photo Studio Pro, Painnt, Photo Lab Pro, ToolWiz Photos and Mirror Lab

My budget is very limited, so I look around for special offers, the Play Store often has good ones for free or highly at highly reduced prices, so it’s always worth looking through those offers. Not all apps are great, most are ad supported, something I have no problem with . . . within limits! I have downloaded a few that I had to watch multiple adverts before I could even edit a single photos, ones like that get uninstalled straight away, I have better things to do with my time! lol I would rather use something that I have to pay £1 or $1 a month to use ad free than have to fight my way through adverts! 

If you know of an Android app (I don’t have any Apple devices!) that I'd like and isn't mostly adverts, then please suggest it to me, I would really appreciate it.

Some of these photos may look very different, I am genderfluid, so have a very male days, but very female ones too and as you can probably see these photos reflect both sides of my personality, if you have issues with anybody classing themselves as things like transgender, non binary or genderfluid, then it might be a good idea to leave this site now as there may be photos and poems etc. that you will probably have a problem with. 

A heavily manipulated photo of Dean Thorpe, lots of work done around the eyes to make him look like he has magical powers, but his powers in real life are limited to his Paintshop Pro editing skills! lol

Pink and purple hair, custom made mask and steampunk goggles, just a normal day for Dean Thorpe.

A photo of Dean Thorpe adding a little magic to his old Aspex Design web site, years before he decided to change to Death Prone Images instead. This photo uses a mixture of digital effects and some real lighting ones too

Never leave a crazy photographer like Dean Thorpe alone in the house with a camera, a plastic toy gun and some editing software, very strange things can occur! lol This was labelled my own worst enemy!

Going for a Terminator look in this heavily edited photo of Dean Thorpe, he is a friendly and nice person really and highly unlikely to Terminate you without very good reason! Hasta la vista, baby! lol

This one that Dean called Dark Digital Dreams is one of Dean Thorpe sitting in the dark with sunglasses and headphones on while lasers projected patterns on his face. The photo has been edited to look more like a painting

A selective colour photo of Dean Thorpe taken at night using only a small LED light as lighting. The only colour is the colour of Dean's eyes, which is his natural colour, everything else is in black and white.

Eyes are the windows to the soul! Dean Thorpe definitely has stars in his eyes, as you can see from this rather close up photo of his eyes

Dean Thorpe showing off his true identity! These days I am open and honest about my gender, sexuality etc. and if anybody wants to know anything then just ask! I do feel we all hie beneath masks, I have hidden behind mine most of my life.

This is the very female side of Dean Thorpe, deciding to add photos like this is still a hard choice to make as I know some people have a problem with anybody Non Binary

This is the very female side of Dean Thorpe, deciding to add photos like this is still a hard choice to make as I know some people have a problem with anybody Non Binary, but I would rather stand proud and be open about being Genderfluid. If you have a problem with me then I suggest you leave this site and never come back!!!

Dean Thorpe is open and honest about being Genderfluid, it means I can vary from day to day or even hour to hour what gender I feel. I class myself as 30% female, 20% male and 50% something else! So sometimes I feel very male, sometimes very female, sometimes a mixture of the two, sometimes I don't feel either gender!!!

Inspired by his love of Doctor Who and sci-fi in general, Dean Thorpe created this photo of him as an inter dimensional explorer

V for vendetta / Anonymous mask, a Harley Quinn top and surrounded by virtual bubbles, why this combination? When it comes to Dean Thorpe its safer not to ask
