All aboard the painting app train: Google is making its own Prisma competitor, samples inside!
In more recent reincarnations of these apps, the algorithms have been simplified, and the transformation happens in real time, straight on your phone. In fact, they are so fast now that the filters can be applied to video, too.
Well, Google seems to be interested in entering this niche and expanding the features even further. Posted on the Google Developers blog, we can now see a project, made by Google's own coders, that employs light and flexible algorithms, which allow you to choose from a number of painting styles, mix, combine, and match them all in real time. A few sliders allow you to control the influence of each "style", giving you a vast array of possible combinations.
There is no mention of possible app, but we wouldn't be surprised if the art-style filters pop up in Google Photos sooner or later.
Do you use Prisma-like apps?
