Created in 2016, Lensa is a photo editing application that, two days ago, launched a new feature: Magic Avatars. The premise is simple: from selfies, the function creates avatars using artificial intelligence. The new feature was popular with the public and made the app one of the most downloaded apps on Android and iOS systems. In addition, the images became a trend on social networks.
To create avatars, Lensa needs you to upload at least 10 selfies. In less than 20 minutes, the application generates 50 avatars with your face. It is worth remembering that, in order for the new photos to have fewer errors and greater resemblance to real life, it is ideal to send as many expressions and angles of faces as possible.
The new images follow themes such as “Sci-fi”, “Mystical”, “Stylish” and “Adventure”. Paid Lensa and subscription costs R$10.90. It is also possible to generate avatars without a subscription, for BRL 22.90. The tool offers a free trial week, but only for photo editing, leaving out the Magic Avatars function.
