‘Tis The Season For Having Fun With Your Photos!

This year has been a little bit tough for all of us… We all need some magic and beauty to warm up our hearts this winter! 🤗  We’ve been working hard all year to bring you the best of Christmas fun and joy. ✨🎄 🎁 And today, on Christmas eve (and also shortly before New Year’s eve), we want to wish you all the finest things in life:

Yes, I want them now! 😊

Vectoriously Yours, Photo Lab

Ever since we came out with our much-loved AI-driven cartoon portraits, we’ve been working hard to impress you even more (yes, that might seem next to impossible, but we definitely had something left in the tank! 😉 )

So now we are ready to announce (can you hear the drum roll??…) our brand new digital art technology – vector art portraits! 🍾🍾🍾

Oh, that’s something worth paying attention to!

Doll yourself up for Halloween!

We all know that Artificial Intelligence can be smart, innovative and even artistic. But could you imagine that it can also be creepy, spooky and spine shiver sending? Yes, it definitely can! Especially on the eve of Halloween 😜 🎃

Our tried-and-true AI artist broke bad and came out with an algorithm that turns normal people into creepy dolls like the ones featured in those good old horror movies. Remember Chucky, Annabelle and Dolly Dearest? Now you have a chance to become one of them!

Terrified, but still want to learn more! 🙀

On a round trip with Photo Lab!

Hey bro, wanna come round for some cool new effects in Photo Lab? Because we have to offer quite a few effects that will surely make the world go round 😉

Any ideas what we are talking about? OK, enough suspense! It’s our brand new circle effects that have become quite a trend recently (especially because they look so neat when combined with our AI Cartoon effects). You can find them (together with other effects) in the Figure It Out category in the Photo Lab app.

Why do people love these effects? We don’t know for sure, but probably because they are stylish, trendy and look super cool as profile pics. 😎

So, what are the circle effects about? Let’s dig into that!

Look who’s wearing Photo Lab effects!

Celebs are just like us. They love to have fun, hang out on Instagram and play with cool photo effects (if they are SUPER DUPER cool, of course 😎). And we have some proofs for that.   

We’ve discovered recently that Will Smith (@willsmith) is sporting a cool new profile picture in his Instagram and Facebook accounts. Conspicuously, he made it with the help of the See The Good effect in Photo Lab. What can we say? It is quite clear that apart from his immense acting talent and charismatic personality, he can surely see the good! 😜

Who’s up next? 😉

Ways to keep positive while staying home

During the COVID-19 outbreak, we all feel like the entire world is upside down. Coronavirus gets us all anxious and frustrated.

But worry is like a rocking chair: it gives you something to do, but it never gets you anywhere. In this time of high anxiety and social distancing, there are still ways to keep being positive, even while you’re stuck at home (hope you know that staying home 🏠 is the only way to keep yourself safe, as well as to prevent the spread of the virus).

Stay home and keep positive
