How Photo Lab is NOT CONNECTED to the CIA

It’s not. We swear 🙂

After our Photo Lab app got viral in Bangladesh with its new photo effect (and reached #1 rank there on Android), three of their leading news websites «proved» it to be a part of IBM’s plan to sell data to the US Intelligence Agencies. Sounds ridiculous and it is, but that actually happened.

Shortly after we released new «AI Cartoon» effects, Photo Lab started slowly climbing the ranks in lots of countries. And this particular combo became a hit in lots of Muslim countries. Especially in Bangladesh! After becoming #1 photo editing app there by the end of last week, it moved up to top #1 overall in its Android store as of this Wednesday, beating Facebook and Instagram, the platforms from which the virality derived.

It became so popular that Bangladesh accounted for more than half of our daily processing, our servers even got down for some time. At some point, about half of Dhaka’s «Recent» Instagram posts were dedicated to our effects.

And early today the news broke. Three of Bangladesh’s leading websites (www.kalerkantho.com, www.somoynews.tv, banglanews24.com) posted an article claiming that Photo Lab is actually… CIA project aimed at collecting bank data of its users. Well, we are obviously not. We even don’t have an office in the US.

But just to respond to their points…

The chronicle behind Shawn Mendes album cover

Guess what can happen when you edit a photo of your idol with Photo Lab? Sometimes your creation becomes a cover art for his new album!

Get Photo Lab for iOS & Android

Right from the moment Shawn Mendes announced his third self-named album, the album’s cover has been the center of discussions on where the inspiration for the artwork came from. All because the artwork reminds of one of the effects inside the Photo Lab app. And the truth is our app became an important part of the story in the very beginning, when one amazing fan of one YouTube billionaire (in views currency) created a fan art with our ‘Inner Bloom’ effect.
