“Prisma transforms your photos into artworks using the styles of famous artists: Van Gogh, Picasso, Levitan, as well as world famous ornaments and patterns. A unique combination of neural networks and artificial intelligence helps you turn memorable moments into timeless art.”
You’ve watch the video and read the little bio about the app Prisma. So you’re wondering how does it all work, well I’ll give you the step by step and detailed information about the app.
Before you start using this app, make sure you’re online. I recommend using WiFi because I don’t know if this app will eat up your data. You can turn off the watermark without paying for it.
I like to go through my camera roll rather than take a photo. The app is set up in square format only. You can crop your photo to fit in the square. I tried pinching in and you’re stuck in square format only.
Process doesn’t take long and my images are auto-saved to the camera roll. I like to go through a bunch of different filters and picking ones I like and delete the ones I don’t like in my camera roll. You can also post your creations on Instagram or Facebook after the process.
Now that you know how the app work, let me give you other information about the company and app. First the resolution saves are 1080 x 1080. The reason for the low resolution is all of your images are rendered on a server in Russia. The advantage of your images process on a server is it would take about an hour or longer to process on your iPhone. This will also put some serious wear and tear on your iPhone. Each time you tap and use a different filter, it goes through a process on their servers. What’s nice is they don’t post your image on public gallery like Dreamscope and Pikazo. I hate that because then anyone can download your image and use it in anyway. They save directly to your camera roll, where it’s safe. You can load them where you want or press the button to post on Instagram or Facebook. The render process with Primsa is a lot faster than the other two apps mentioned up above. There are 35 different artistic filters to choose from, I’ve read in the near futures from other blog posts. The developers are planning to add more filters which will bring the total to 40 and other helpful updates to help choose what are the best filter to work with your photo.
Prisma is free with no in-app purchases and iPhone only. You have to have internet on when you use this app and recommend you use WiFi. It’s not an offline editing app. Prisma is only available in 16 countries and more will be added over time. The app developing is funded through investors at the moment and everything is processed through their servers. They can only handle so many images coming in at a time. If you want to push the resolution of the images, I highly recommend getting Big Photo to push your pixel count.
You can follow Prisma on Instagram @prisma and hash tag your creation #prisma. If you have any questions about this blog post, please leave comments. Have a great day and see you soon !!!
