How to use FaceApp
The interface of FaceApp is simple to make use of and can assist you to edit each new selfie footage taken throughout the app’s camera or older footage you’ve already got on your phone.
Either is simple to do from FaceApp’s home display screen. You can make a selection of a photograph by pressing ‘All Photos’ along the bottom of the screen or line your face up to take a picture through the app’s own camera.
The symbol you select will start off on a filter out known as “Original”, but in case you scroll properly you can have options like; Smile, Smile 2, Spark, Old, Young, Female👩 and Male.
Both ‘Smile’ choices will open your mouth and include some teeth, while the ‘Spark’ option will make your your skin tone smooth. There’s additionally both female and male options to give you more masculine or female options. The funniest choices are the young and old options that can both supply you with wrinkles or make you appear to be a child.
If you scroll to the left hand side you’ll be able to find additional options to make GIFs and collages of your footage so you’ll be able to show off more than one edited image all at once in one photo.
Once you have successfully created your masterpiece image, sharing icons will appear under the edited image. The downward facing arrow at the bottom will allow you to download the picture while there are also options to post to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
There’s also an option to share across to other applications such as WhatsApp and other popular messaging platforms too.
What do you have to pay for?
Since the inception, there has always been a paid option for the FaceApp app, but it didn’t originally offer many more features over the free version of the app. The app has been updated to FaceApp 3.4 with a lot more styles and beauty filters, but you’ll need to pay to access them.
The new filters will allow you to;
- Smooth out your skin tone
- Give yourself facial hair or;
- You can even give yourself a more dramatic kawaii look.
Pricing for the new features comes in at $20 when originally the pro version of the app was listed at $3.99. The upgrade will also take away annoying ads and allow you remove the FaceApp watermarks from the bottom of images, but it’s still a bit expensive for that.
To pay for it, you should move to the Settings section of the app and press the buy button. The app will then redirect you to the Google Play Store or App Store to help you finish off your purchase.
