When it comes to enhancing pictures, there sure are a plethora of third-party applications that could get the job done. Every now and then, a new name surfaces and stands out from others in its category. Prisma is such an app dedicated to photo editing.
Prisma was launched on iOS in June, and ever since then, the app has ranked even higher than messaging applications like WhatsApp orin countries such as Russia and Ukraine, according to AppAnnie. The application allows users to edit their images in a very artistic way using up to 33 filters.
Prisma’s filter algorithm employs multiple neural networks and even artificial intelligence. Such tools are necessary for scanning the image and applying a certain style. It doesn’t just apply filters on images, as other photography apps do. This is why Prisma has seen such a growing popularity on iOS and possibly why its expansion to Android has caught the attention of users.
Prisma app comes with truly artistic filters
The filters are quite different from those offered by other photo editing apps available on the market in the sense that Prisma allows users to transform pictures into artworks in the style of famous artists such as Picasso or Monet.
Prisma doesn’t require its users to create an account in order to use the applications, and the main screen is split in two. The top half displays the camera view while the other half shows camera buttons and a tool for picking images from the phone’s gallery. Pictures can be cropped or rotated before applying filters.
The screen for picking filters is quite similar to Instagram, with the photo preview on the top and filters at the bottom. The filters effect can be increased or decreased if users slide a finger on the photo preview. The app takes only a few seconds to apply filters, and images can be later shared on social networks.
Prisma is definitely worth a try, if not for the truly artistic filters, then for the fast editing speed. The app is free and available onand .
