PRISMA is one of the trending apps at the moment. One cannot categorize the PRISMA into an ordinary photo-editing app, it easily converts a photograph into a classic painting. Available only to iOS user right now, this app is free to download on App Store.

Paintings and artwork are the oldest forms of expression. The old works of classical artists like Picasso, Van Gogh and Andy Warhol have been sold for enormous amount of money in auctions over the years. Pablo Picasso’s Nude, Green Leaves and Bust was sold for a then-record $102.5 million in 2010. The auction took less than 10 minutes to set the record price for an artwork. With modern technology in play, photography is a major art. It is the most realist expression of the photographer’s point of view. PRISMA is an app that superbly combines photography and artwork.

The app transforms your photograph into a Picasso-styled or a Van Gogh styled artwork. PRISMA uses neural networks and artificial intelligence to convert your intimate photographs into classic art. Along with the Picasso-styled filter and the Van Gogh-styled filter, there are 31 different filters on this trending app namely ‘ Waves ‘, ‘ The Scream ‘, ‘ Heisenberg ‘ and other various modern art filters. Some of these filters are suited for portraits while other filters go better with landscape photographs. The PRISMA filters are more advanced than your normal Instagram filters, the app first scans your photograph then applies the filter.

Currently, the app is only available to iOS users. An Android version is due to release by the end of July 2016. PRISMA filters are so sophisticated and amazing that it makes filters of apps like Instagram quite mundane. Editing videos is not currently available on PRISMA, but one can expect that feature in the next few updates.

The PRISMA app is very easy to use. When I first installed the app on my iPhone I presumed that I would have to make a PRISMA account first before I get to use the app. There’s no need for that ! You can directly click a photo on the app or select a photo from your photo library. Then, you have to choose a filter style for your photo. That’s it ! You can then save the photo on your phone or share it on Instagram or Facebook.
