"Artificial Intelligence tends to paint some fun portraits,” wrote the Dum Mastam writer-actor Amar Khan. She posted a series of pictures too with herself in a floral princess avatar, a superhero one, an Egyptian princess and more.

How does the AI app work?

It’s very simple. Once you sign up with the app, you upload at least 10 images of yourself. The more images you upload, the more varied your photos will look, and the app encourages users to include as many facial features, expressions, and angles as possible.

From there, it takes a bit of time for the software to generate the avatars. It’s a quick way of creating live images into digital portraits and people are having a lot of fun experimenting with alter looks.
