Prisma Photo App Update Adds Filter Store, User-Created Filters Coming Soon

Popular photo filter app Prisma has been updated with an in-app store for users to download additional filters for free. The photo app uses the predictive analyses of neural network technology to achieve its stylistic interpretations, which typically makes them more unique than standard photo filters. Prisma says the new store will bring even more originality to users' pictures, with the promise of new styles being added to the store every week, and possibly every day further down the line. Users will also be able to rate and share individual filter styles in the near future, according to Prisma. In addition, users can now delete filters they don't like from the 44 styles that come with the app. According to The Next Web, Prisma has also developed a desktop app that allows users to create their own unique styles by adjusting a series of parameters. The company is still refining the tool, which takes a while to process images and doesn't yet say what each slider control adjusts, but a preview is offered before the image is uploaded and processed. Currently the filter creator is only available to the most active users, but Prisma plans on bringing it to mobile and more users soon. Prisma is a free download on the App Store for iPhone and iPad.

Artistic Photo Editing App 'Prisma' Now Supports Video Clips

The artistic effects available in popular photo manipulation app Prisma can now be applied to up to 15 seconds of video (via Mashable). The company behind Prisma announced the new "beta" feature for iOS devices on Thursday, and said a total of nine styles are currently available for video, but that number is set to "soar weekly". The styles include Candy, Cold Fish, Paper Art, Illegal Beauty, Tokyo, Gothic, Curly Hair, The Scream, and Roy. The video support was made possible because of a change to the way the app processes effects, which now happen locally on the device, rather than on Prisma's servers. According to Prisma, video processing time depends on the device: on an iPhone 7, it will take around 30 seconds to process a 15-second video, but that time approximately doubles on an iPhone 6S.  Prisma uses the predictive analyses of DeepDream-esque neural network technology to achieve its stylistic interpretations, which typically makes them more unique than standard photo filters. The developers also plan to add GIF support "very soon", while filter quality will continue to be improved. Prisma is a free download on the App Store for iPhone and iPad. [Direct Link
