Weekly Photo Challenge : Satisfaction

When an image comes out well, it gives me satisfaction, even if it comes from using some clever technology like Prisma. This is a shot of the fountain in Tavisuplebis Moedani (Liberty Square) in Tbilisi. The image was put through the Prisma “electric” filter on my android phone, which uses some clever AI, I felt satisfied with the result.

Prisma

Yesterday, I downloaded Prisma onto my Android Smartphone, there are 43 different filters which can dramatically transform my photos. The technology is described as “A Neural Algorithm of Artistic Style”.

I am quite impressed with some of the results.

I take my granddaughter to school in the mornings, so as I took her, I played with my new app…

I have had the app less than 24 hours but I’ve already made over 100 images, it is easy and fun to use plus it was free to download.

Some filters imitate famous artists like Munch, Mondrian, Hokusai or Roy Lichtenstein others are just bespoke filters of the app.

The app was created by Alexey Moiseenkov and uses artificial intelligence in a way I cannot grasp.

I can take a photo and apply the filter or download old photos to my phone to be Prismatised.

This gives the Metro Carriage a Renoir-look (the filter was called “Dancers in Blue”)

I can see I am going to have a lot of fun with this app in the days ahead.
