There is a new app on the Play Store, and no it’s not Pokemon Go. It is a photo filtering app called Prisma that has been available on the App Store for iPhones for a few months back, and has finally been brought over to Android users.
The difference between Prisma and the other numerous photo filtering apps that abound on the Play Store, is that it completely rebuilds a picture based on the filter applied to it.
The app works not by just overlaying the filter on top of the image, but it reconstructs the image from the ground up to create a new photo that essentially embodies the applied filter.
With the type of technology utilized by Prisma, photos of any kind and size can now be transformed to look like pieces of artwork by famous artists, with the use of some filters specially designed and included in that regard.
Here are some photos after being worked on by Prisma on Android and iOS.
