Smartphones have made taking professional quality photos as easy as pressing a button. But with the Prisma app, you can turn those really great photos into works of art. Literally.

Prisma is a photo editor that transforms your photos and videos into works of art using the styles of famous artists, including Van Gogh, Picasso, and Levitan, among many others. Through a combination of neural networks and artificial intelligence, you can simply choose a filter to turn any photo into timeless art.

Here's a photo I took on my iPhone 8 Plus in portrait mode:

And here's the photo after being altered in Prisma with two different artsy filters:

Cool, right? If these particular filters aren't your style, there are tons more to choose from.

You can also clip the background on selfies, which leaves the person in the foreground (in a selfie situation, that would be you) regular while the background is transformed.

And then of course you can share the photos directly to social media. Because if a pic isn't shared on Instagram, did it even happen?

Download Prisma free for iOS and Android.
