Users of Google Arts and Culture app can have better enjoyment of the educational and cultural stuff they discover, by way of a new Art Filter selfie tool. As everyone knows, live face filters and all sorts of video effects are quite amusing and fun to use when engaged in not-so-serious video chats with friends.
What if instead of aliens, astronauts, zombies or butterfly effects, you have a choice of using famous artworks of world-renowned painters as face filters; or of putting on historical artifacts that you’d have no chance of wearing because they are valuable exhibits in prestigious museums? Now that would be a different kind of fun because at the same time, you will also be sharing educational or cultural information. .
Google Arts and Cultures (GAC) app’s Art Filter will allow you to do just that aside from the app’s other endearing features like the Art Transfer, the Virtual Tours and similar other engaging approaches for acquiring art and cultural learning. The Art Filter is actually an extension of Google’s partnership with various museums and cultural exhibits located across the globe.
About GAC’s Art Filter
Using high definition images of famous artworks created by famous artists like Vincent Van Gogh (Self-Portrait”), Frida Kahlo (“Untitled”), Andy Warhol (“Self-Portrait”), Edward Munch (“The Scream”); and March Chagall (“Cena de Circo”), which is just to name a few, you can set your selfie inside any of them, to send or share with friends.
Awesome even is that the artworks can be viewed in different angles, which will enable you to display more details while you move. When sharing your art filtered image using the GAC app, the creators of the Art Filter tool encourages you to use #ArtFilter hashtag.
Actually, the selection of filters include popular high definition images of museum artifacts that you can attach or wear on your person as special effects: e.g. an ancient Samurai helmet or the Faience collar necklace worn by Egyptian Pharaohs.
Google Arts and Cultures wanted to make sure that users of all ages and from all walks of life will be able to use the Art Filter, as the creators also released a Youtube video tutorial, which readers can view below:
