These animations are everything!

Today I saw a newspaper article about the MyHeritage app Deep Nostalgia. It’s an app that animates faces from (old) photographs. The animations I saw were so realistic, and I knew immediately that I needed to try it.

And when I tell you I was not disappointed! I started with a photograph of my maternal grandmother. The app was so easy to use. You have to upload picture, the system then does its magic and after less than a minute your ancestor starts to move. It’s crazy!

I send the animation of my grandmother to my mother with the warning “Don’t be startled…and don’t cry either!” because I know my mom, and I also know that it can be quite a shock to see a photo come to life.

It really is a fun to do. Now, the MyHeritage people are smart of course. The first two animations are free. And once you’re on a roll, and hit animate on the third picture, you have to pay…:-(. And of course the app is only available with their most expensive package. Well, good job marketing team at MyHeritage. You got me… I paid up! And spend the rest of my afternoon animating..haha.

You can check out the app here
