With Microsoft Pix Camera, now transform your pictures into art

By : |June 16, 2017 0

Microsoft Pix that uses artificial intelligence to make your pictures look perfect has been updated with new filters to make your shots look like a real piece of art. The app was originally designed to enhance your iPhone photos and uses algorithms to analyse 10 frames for every picture you take, looking for sharpness, exposure and even facial expression to make sure you get the very best shot.

The new filters may sound like what Prisma does but Microsoft’s features were developed by Microsoft Asia Research Lab in collaboration with Skype. According to a company blog post, Pix Camera uses texture, pattern and tones learned by deep neural networks from famous works of arts instead of altering the photo uniformly.

The initial 11 styles are named as Glass, Petals, Bacau, Charcoal, Heart, Fire, Honolulu, Zing, Pop, Glitter and Ripples — more will be added in the coming weeks. Pix Camera creates a timeline of your picture as if it were being painted in real time, giving a short video of its creation.


The update leverages an A.I. processing approach called deep neural networks something that Google also experimented with in order to produce a new kind of trippy, machine-created art last year. Microsoft’s researcher Josh Weisberg said,”In the past, a lot of our efforts were focused on using AI and deep learning to capture better image quality. This is more fun. I want to do something cool and artistic with my photos.”

Microsoft Pix Camera is now available on the App Store as a free download for all.
