PRISMA

PRISMA, an app by Prisma labs, inc. transforms your photos into works of art using the styles of famous artists in addition to famous ornaments and patterns. A unique combination of neural networks and artificial intelligence helps you turn memorable moments into timeless art pieces and going by the images modified using the app popping up on various social media, the app seems to have caught the fancy of many iOS and Android users.

Prism allows you to either click  pic through the app or select an existing photograph in your camera library. The picture is then cropped to a 1:1 ratio and the user is given the options of the numerous filters (from the 20 that come with the app) to modify the image.

The app offers:

  1. Modern art / photo filters (more than 30 styles)!
  2. Stunning photo effects
  3. Fast sharing

The one thing we did not like was the time taken. When you select an image and apply a filter , it takes in the neighborhood of 20 seconds for the image to be rendered for you with the filter to take effect, and if you want to explore another filter, keeping adding. it can get pretty annoying.

Another tip: if you want to remove the annoying PRISMA watermark on the lower right side, go into settings and uncheck “Add Watermark option”.

The app is free for now so go ahead and explore it, however do be careful of the fake copies.

For iOS, it needs iOS 8 or later and for Android 4.1 and above.
