Deep nostalgia

The use of artificial intelligence to improve photos is something known to users in Spain. Deep Nostalgia goes one step further with the use of it, since it is capable of transform old photos into animated photos or small videos. This website, owned by the genealogical website My Heritage, is a way to bring any photo to life.

Uploading a photo to Deep Nostalgia creates an effect that makes said photo appear to move. Many users are uploading old photos of deceased relatives, in order to turn those photos into animated photos that allow us to see that person in motion again.

This is how Deep Nostalgia transforms photos

Not only can Deep Nostalgia be used with old photos, it will also do the same with recent photos. This program makes use of videos prerecorded facial movements and depending on the image that has been uploaded, the one that fits or works best with it will be uploaded. This is what will achieve the best possible effect to get that animated photo, that looks real, really creepy to see such photos come to life.

The process to upload a photo is not complicated, because you just have to enter the web and upload the photo from your device. To do this you will have to create an account on MyHeritage, something that is free, being able to enter with your Google or Facebook account. You can then upload any photo, just portraits, something that many users have done, even statues, making this website and its artificial intelligence one of the most discussed topics on Twitter last weekend.

When you’ve uploaded the photo in question to Deep Nostalgia and the effect is applied, you can later download the GIF that has been created from it. So you can have it on your phone, computer or share it with other people who want to be able to see that photo that you have brought to life with this artificial intelligence.

In addition, it seems that this website protects the privacy of users, since they say that the photos are not shared with third parties. It is also mentioned that those photos that have been uploaded without completing the registration will be deleted automatically.
