GFP-GAN is a free, open source, AI-based tool that will restore your old family photos.
Most there are too many circulating photo recovery tools that work with artificial intelligence. But if you want to fix an old family photo (and more), try Tencent's GFP-GAN program.
This is a free and open source photo recovery tool that takes only a few seconds to fix an old photo.
GFP-GAN (Generative Facial Prior-Generative Adversarial Network) is almost unique. Unlike most AI photo recovery tools, it aims to fix old photos without hiding their subject's identity.
This means it focuses on cleaning up noise, correcting wrinkles, bringing out detail and enhancing color with little guesswork.
As you can see in the images above, GFP-GAN doesn't add much to the photos. It just cleans things up and fills in some gaps when needed. Subjects do not lose their facial hair or mutate into something alien. This is partly due to StyleGAN-2 by NVIDIA, which the Tencent researchers use alongside their own model.
Artificial intelligence recovery tools are never perfect, and GFP-GAN has some failures too. Tencent researchers warn that the restored photos may not have sufficient resolution and that in some cases, family members may look a bit strange
However you can try GFP-GAN in your browser or download it source code on Github.
