If you wish, you can find a lot of programs on the Internet that automatically can age or rejuvenate a person in a portrait shot. The application FaceApp, which will be discussed in this article, differs from other amazing realism, which provided him the first place in various ratings of the App Store and Play Market.
In fact, the program was developed in 2017 by Russian specialists from the Wireless Lab company, but over the past two and a half years of its existence, its functionality has changed significantly. Many of the features of the neural network underlying FaceApp filters have been criticized for racism (some effects have changed skin color), homophobia (empowering individuals with the characteristics of the opposite sex), etc. At the moment, the toolkit of the application is also quite wide, however, the function of virtual aging of the character in the picture has become the most popular of them.
How to use old face app on a photo on iPhone, iPad and Android
To make this procedure is very simple. First you need to download the application FaceApp – AI Face Editor ( link in the App Store , link in Google Play ). It should be noted that the basic version of the program is available for free and is supported by most devices, even very outdated ones, and if you wish, you can unleash the full functionality of FaceApp by paying a subscription to the Pro version.
With regard to the filter aging / rejuvenation, the difference between the paid and free version will be only in the presence of the last watermark at the bottom of the final images.
By running FaceApp and allowing the application access to the library and the camera, it remains to select or take a picture of the right person, and then in the bottom of the screen go to the “Age” section and specify the desired parameter (young, elderly).
In order to compare the resulting photo with the original there is a special button
Please note that the application immediately after launch warns the user that the images will be uploaded to the cloud service for applying effects. The developers note that FaceApp has access only to the photos added to the program, and after 48 hours it deletes them from their servers. However, this fact has disturbed many users. For example, US Senator Chuck Schumer personally asked the FBI director to investigate the potential use of personal photographs of ordinary Americans by the program.
