This process is technically known as convolutional neural networks search. The app’s algorithm, which depends heavily on Artificial Intelligence, goes through the tons of artistic styles and selects the particular one with the original photo as a reference. Thus the resultant image which you get is the blend of the two images, with your original photo retained at a maximum intensity.

Also the picture which you alter gets stored in the Prisma database only for small period that too in encrypted form. This gives the users the freedom to use any picture with privacy.

Different From Peers?

Speaking of technology, every photo editing app has its own special program. What makes Prisma so good is the learning and application of the filters which it makes.

Unlike other apps, Prisma inspects the original image as several layers and the effect is applied to each layer separately. But in other photo editing apps the filter is applied as a coating to the original image, which in a way is artificial. Prisma is like pioneer to those photo editors. The improved GPU’s, which is used to create the most basic structure of the app, increases the standard of photos in mobile phones.
