@rrhoover @naveen My thoughts exactly. I'm not sure who was doing this in SF. Was it part of FB's design studio, or a local merchant? At one point, everyone's avatar was this.

Excited to see this release. @Hipstamatic is by far my favorite photo app, there's so much that can be accomplished with it.

Glad you guys are enjoying TinType! This one was a total passion build, the guys built it in 4 days :)

this actually works really well! tip: have the subject in them middle of the frame because the app blurs things around the edges.

@hahnbo Tintype uses facial recognition and builds the blur and filter from the eyes out ... so it doesn't need to be dead center ... but it does look really good centered :)

@hahnbo We also have a fallback of sorts -- if it doesn't find eyes but finds a face it still does a focussed blur around the face.

Thanks for looping us in @NikkiElizDemere. As @lucasbuick mentioned, @agkaimal and I put this thing together in a long weekend (plus a few more days of bug fixing and tweaks). Awesome to see how well it's been received! Can't wait to show you guys what we're working on next ;-)

@dorshorst @lucasbuick @agkaimal the pics on the website look really amazing and would love to experiment with this as a photography lover. Im currently using android though :S will you release one anytime soon??

Awesome! I love photo filters, but "Ain't nothing like the real thing, baby..." Found a man in Alameda/Oakland who takes tintype portraits. http://www.revivaltintype.com/
