Beautification Algorithm

August 14, 2006 at 7:00 pm (Photos, Science)

Yesterday I posted about Britney Spears pre-photshopped photos. And you all may know that each photo of models/celebs must be tweaked “a bit” (ok! “a lot”) before printing. Well what if you had the same technology in your camera, and it beautified you automatically?

Tommer Leyvand, a researcher at Tel Aviv University in Israel, has done just that. Leyvand has developed a new algorithm that can improve the looks of human faces in photos so they appear as better versions of themselves.

The technology, called a “digital beautification” algorithm, apparently makes tiny adjustments to the distances between hundreds of different facial features, according to the report. That way, it can alter the person’s appearance only subtly in a matter of minutes.
