Popular photo manipulation app Prisma has been updated to allow offline processing of images for the first time.
The photo app recreates images in the style of famous artists and gives shots a painterly aesthetic using neural networks, but up until now users needed an internet connection and had to wait for the app's Moscow-based servers to process their pictures.
The latest update doesn't bring offline mode to the whole collection of Prisma's filters, but the developers say more is to come on that front, and the change means server-side video manipulation is just around the corner.
"Now that we've implemented neural networks right to the smartphones, we have enough server capacity to run full videos on them in the near future," said the Prisma team.
Prisma Labs says "repainting" times have been reduced to five seconds on Apple's latest iPhones and that there should be no increase in handset battery usage.
