Lightricks announced the release of Facetune 2, a photo-editing application that allows users to retouch their selfies before sharing them with others. Facetune 2 is the follow-up to the original Facetune, which was released in 2013.
With Facetune 2, users can edit their selfies in a variety of ways. For instance, they can whiten their teeth, smooth their skin or reshape specific facial features, like their mouths. The app’s reshaping feature uses artificial intelligence to “understand” how a feature should be changed to fit with the rest of the user’s face. For instance, if a user takes a selfie without smiling, they can use the app’s Reshape feature to create a smile on their face.
Elsewhere, the app’s Live Preview feature uses augmented reality to allow users to preview certain edits before taking pictures with their front-facing cameras. As examples, users can preview edits associated with smoothing their skin and whitening their teeth.
While Facetune 2 can be downloaded for free, only some of the app’s features are freely available, and users can purchase extra tools and features in the app’s store. For instance, users can purchase tools that will allow them to reshape their eyes or other facial features. Users can also purchase a Relight tool, which allows them to remove the original lighting in a photo and replace it with simulated lighting.
While users can purchase the tools they want individually, they can also purchase a monthly or yearly subscription to the app to unlock all of its existing and future content.
Facetune 2 is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store.
