By adding the function Art Transfer from Google, in the application of Arts and Culture, you can apply different art styles to a photo of your choice. The company explains that το Art Transfer allows you to "apply the features of well-known paintings to your own images". The artistic interventions are inspired by Vincent van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, Edvard Munch and Leonardo da Vinci.
To use the function Art Transfer:
- Open the application Google Arts and Culture in the Android the iOS your cell phone.
- Touch the camera icon at the bottom and center of the screen.
- Click on Art Transfer.
- Take a new photo with your phone or select an existing photo from its memory.
- Choose an art style to apply to your photo.
OR Google will apply art style to your photo. You can then choose to view it as a Still or GIF animation. Alternatively, by clicking the scissors icon in the upper right corner, you can choose to convert only a portion of your photo. When done, you can save it or share the results.
It is fair to say that the function Art Transfer produces mixed results. We chose a photo and applied different styles. Some had very good results, while others made the photo unrecognizable. So, prepare for several tests until the desired result.
The Art Transfer is a good function for anyone who has started to get bored indoors. It is also educational, sharing fun information about works of art and different styles. Finally, it can apply the styles to your personal photo and the result can be so good that you can print it and frame it on your wall.
