Ever since Instagram, the world can't get enough of free photo filters, and Prisma offers some of the best photo filters in the world for iPhone and Android. If you're no oil painting, but you want to be, read on.
What is Prisma?
Prisma is a picture filtering app that turns your phone photos into artworks. It can emulate the style of famous artists, making you look like a real-life Picasso or Van Gogh, and transforms your favourite selfie into something that looks hand-painted.
Photos edited with Prisma are all over social networks - you've almost certainly got a Facebook friend with a Prisma profile picture. Basically, if a photo looks like an amazingly skilled painting or piece of artwork, then it's probably been edited with this app. You can see some examples on the Prisma Instagram account.
How does Prisma work?
The Prisma app uses AI (artificial intelligence) and neural networks (brain-like computer systems) to transform your photo into a brand new piece of art. It's basically what would happen if you took your favourite photo to a real-life artist and asked them to paint it, but without the waiting, the expense, or the messy paint.
Is Prisma free?
The Prisma photo filtering app is free to download and use on iPhone, iPad and Android.
