A trend that has recently gone viral all over the internet is people posting pictures of themselves now, and years in the future using a mobile app called FaceApp.
Developed by Russian company Wireless Lab, FaceApp is AI-powered photo manipulation and editing app that lets the user alter a photo s/he selects to get a magazine cover quality with highly realistic transformations of faces. That is not all, being an AI-powered app that also claims to be the most advanced neural portrait editing technology, FaceApp also allows its users to make the person on the photo look younger or aged. Some of the other features also include hairstyles, beards, tattoos or even gender flipping.
However, FaceApp is not the only app that can do wonders with a selfie photograph, there are other mobile applications as well. In this article, we list 9 alternatives of FaceApp that one can use to make their photos look premium and trendy.

ThisPersonDoesNotExist is definitely one of the quirkiest uses of AI. Created by Philip Wang, a software engineer at Uber, ThisPersonDoesNotExist.com shows images of people that don’t actually exist but is generated by a Deep Neural Network.
But the question here is, have you ever wondered if that quirky website has created any photograph of someone who looks like you?
