It's sad to see that startups aren't helping push the body positive movement and helping people realise they don't need retouching or blemish removal to look great. Apps like this can only add to peoples insecurities showing them what fake perfection looks like. If Dove, CVS, ASOS and MAC are pushing this movement. Why isn't silicone valley?

Pros:

- Seems like a very functional product that does what it says

Cons:

- Portrays that AI/Retouching is needed to look attractive

- Goes against the body confident movement

What if some people actually want to look better on pictures than they really do?
Come on, this only tweaks the small things like pimples, yellow teeth etc. Not liking it is like being against wearing concealer. It doesn't let you make faces unrecognizable.
This is a great topic, too, because if people don't like something about themselves that can be corrected, then maybe apps can / need to start to support self-correction. As in, maybe selfie apps need to be married with personal trainer, life coach, and doctor services
Or, we could just let people make up their own minds. Treat them like adults and give them freedom of choice instead of calling for censorship of apps that don't follow our SJW agenda. As for the Silicon Valley reference, according to Wikipedia, the Prisma team is located in Moscow, but please correct me if I'm wrong. Not all innovation happens in Silicon Valley. You'd be surprised what smart people can do with the right resources. Location is less of an issue these days.
Hey Product Hunters! I’m so exited to announce today a new magical product Lensa created by Prisma Labs’ team. We’re on a path to create an AI that automates photo and video editing routine. Allowing everyone to get amazing professional grade results editing their photos in a matter of seconds. This release is just a first step. The first version is focused on portrait photos and selfies. It has automated face retouch feature that defines blemishes and removes them without having users to select anything manually. Also, it provides Bokeh effect based on very precise portrait segmentation which allows to run it on a single camera devices with no depth sensors. We’ve implemented camera lens correction and a bunch of other cool tools as well. Give it a try! Eagerly waiting for your feedback! P.S. Android version is coming in the beginning of 2019.
@usoltt sounds AWESOME! Can't wait for the Android version!
@anna_0x Thanks! Android is in progress and coming soon 😉
@anna_0x @usoltt Great, Looking forward to try it out 😃

That is a perfect one-click photo-editing tool for selfies and portraits. The app shoots and processes your selfies as it was made by a professional photographer but at the same time keeps your portraits to look natural. I love it because the app is easy to use and it doesn't require you to do any touch-ups, the processing works like magic.

Pros:

- Great results of processed selfies/portraits

- Easy to use app, with "one button" solution

- Comprehensive toolset as extra features

Cons:

Didn't find any

@robjbye Hey Rob that's a good point, thank you for your comment! We're not about to push users to make fake pictures of themselves. We aim to help people to take better photos reducing flaws of lighting conditions and limitations of a smartphone camera in general.
@usoltt Totally understandable that lighting and improving DoF is there, however the lead feature is Retouching and Blemish Removal. I would question the use of the lead photo to support this as it implies the woman with slight blemishes needs to remove them to look better.
@usoltt @robjbye Maybe they… want to?
I can see how your tech from Prisma (an app many of used) is making its way to different use cases. How did you decide to build Lensa and how does it compare to similar apps like Facetune, @usoltt?
@rrhoover Hey Ryan, great to hear from you! Prisma users processed over 4 Billion pictures using the app. We estimated that about 70% of them are selfies or portrait photos. So, considering that fact we've focused on that type of photography at the first place. Lensa's competitors provide users with manual tools. It take a lot of time, efforts and requires to learn some skills to edit pictures manually. Lensa's key advantage is automation. In the first version we have automated face retouch feature that removes blemishes, softening light and skin tone while not requiring manual selection. Besides the automation, natural look of the result is our highest priority.
