Today I’m thankful for photo filters. A smartphone with a photo filter app makes me look like an amazing photographer.
My latest obsession: Prisma.
This app, available for FREE! (another thing to be thankful for) on both Droid and Apple phones, transforms your photos into works of art using styles of famous artists. Here’s a look.
First, the original image, unfiltered.
My husband bought me an autumn bouquet of flowers at Costco (because he’s thoughtful and cost conscious like that). Honestly, it’s beautiful in all its naked glory. But check it out when it’s filtered with Prisma:
The Prisma filter automatically converts your photo to a square and gives you the option to upload directly to Facebook and Instagram. Or you can email the image to yourself in a variety of sizes. If you want to get really clever, you can split the image to see the before and after together — half and half in one image.
I can imagine creating some very cool personal images to use on gifts for the holidays — cups, mousepads, framed images and the like.
I love it so much, I used Prisma’s Mosaic app (my favorite, I must confess) to create a new profile image for me on Facebook:
Happy Thanksgiving from me to you!
