Image-Morphing App Whose Fun Doesn’t Last Long

FaceApp is a photo-altering mobile app that automatically generates selfie transformations with its advanced neural portrait-editing technology. With this multimedia app, you can have fun with the various filters on its options and even change specific parts of your selfie with its highly-realistic editing

It’s Morphin’ Time

There have been tons of photo-altering apps out there ever since selfies became all the rage. Some were hit-and-miss, mostly just acting as camera apps, while others grew pretty popular with how they executed their services and expanded their horizons. FaceApp is barely in-between the two spectrums, though—being a great and fun photo app that only offers a few features. It’s similar to other apps like Snapchat and overlays filters on your photos. However, FaceApp’s main features are its facial transformations. FaceApp uses its own artificial intelligence that had cataloged the face structures of thousands of people and had saved them as templates. Our faces are mostly similar, and over the centuries, various dominant facial traits have traveled the world, allowing strangers across the globe to look so familiar to us. FaceApp’s technology takes advantage of this, and by merely adding a photo to the app, you can see it morph your image into something you couldn’t have imagined until then. 

Make It Picture Perfect

This app’s main highlight is its various filters that alter your face. It can make you look younger or older, make you the opposite gender, and make you smile even if your mouth is closed in the picture. You can also manipulate your facial features, such as change your hair color and hairstyle, apply perfect evening or day makeup, and get the perfect beard or mustache style. The app also comes with an option to apply amazing tattoos

You can use FaceApp’s Impression filters and other editing tools to set your photos to your liking manually. The app also lets you replace the photo backgrounds. The end-results you get with FaceApp will vary from photo to photo, but as long as you add clear pictures, either from your phone storage or from your social media apps, it can generate cool transformation images for you. It helps that the app is easy to use with uncomplicated editing steps.  If you like playing with images, Faceapp can surely keep you entertained and preoccupied for a while.

Only For a Little While

Overall, FaceApp is a nice app if you want to add fun elements to your selfies. However, you need to be aware of the various security concerns regarding the app. There’s a risky clause in its privacy policy that allows FaceApp’s developers to have access to your photos. It has been brought to the attention of the users and has yet been solved. But, truthfully, there is little to play with FaceApp when you compare it to other apps that you might not have to worry so much about these concerns. FaceApp may be fun, but only for the first few times.
