Class of 2017 Special Offer:

We hope all of your soon to be seniors are enjoying the summer! We’re sure you’ve heard all the talk about senior portraits, but what you don’t know is our senior special secret. If you attend a school where Ananchel is not the contracted photographer, this is something you should know. You only have to go to your school’s contracted photographer for yearbook photos, but you can come to Ananchel to be yourself and get creative! If you bring us your receipt from your school’s contracted photographer, we will give you print credit towards your purchased order. We want you to be as creative as you can be. Your senior portraits show off who you are as an individual. Make these special memories with us!

Ananchel HelpDesk: Install Portraiture in PS CC 2015.5

AnanchelLogo-FoldersAdobe has just released a FANTASTIC new version of Photoshop, CC 2015.5.  I had a bit of trouble installing my Imagenomic Portraiture plug-in since it doesn’t automatically detect this new CC release.

(These instructions are for Macs, but I imagine that PCs might be similar; the folder locations are probably a bit different.)

Fortunately, the solution is simple:

  1. Download the most recent release of Portraiture and open the installer.
  2. Agree to the legal terms (unless you decide not to agree) and follow the prompts.
  3. If Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.5 does not appear on the list in the Choose Host(s) screen, you will need to press the Add button.
  4. Navigate to the Applications > Adobe Photoshop CC 2015.5 > Plug-ins folder and click Open.
  5. Click Next and then Install.
  6. Re-open Photoshop and you’re ready to go.

Happy Photoshopping.



Pineapple Salsa Recipe

Here’s a delicious recipe our readers should check out! We found this on Pinterest and just had to share it.
Pineapple Salsa

Pineapple Salsa Bowl | thegunnysack.com

  • Whole pineapple
  • 1 cup pineapple, diced
  • 1 cup peppers, diced (any combination of red, orange, yellow or green peppers)
  • 1 cup Roma tomatoes, diced
  • ⅓ cup cilantro, chopped
  • ¼ cup onion, diced
  • 2 limes
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Optional: 1 jalapeno, seeded and diced


  1. To make the pineapple bowl, cut about ⅓ of the pineapple off, leaving the stem attached to the larger piece of the pineapple. Make a cut around the outer edge of the pineapple fruit and make cuts across the middle too. Use a metal spoon to loosen and scoop out the pineapple chunks. Pour the extra juice out of the pineapple bowl so that it is empty.
  2. Dice enough of the pineapple chunks to make one cup of diced pineapple to be used for the salsa and save the rest for another use.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together diced pineapple, diced tomatoes, diced peppers, minced onions, chopped cilantro, lime juice, salt, and pepper.
  4. Transfer the salsa to the pineapple bowl for serving.
