3D Portait Apps

The Latest Adobe App will Convert Simple 2D Photographs into 3D Portraits

— October 7, 2015 — Tech
The popular photograph editor Adobe recently added an application that will allow users to transform selfies into a 3D portrait. Thanks to diligent research by Menglei Chai -- a PhD student from Zhejiang University -- and a team of Adobe Research scientists, the software will soon be available for consumer purchase.

While this software exists on a small scale in the Adobe Photoshop program, the new tool uses a tech under development that will recognize facial elements such as eyes and mouths. The entire process will now take less than three minutes to complete and will create a personalized 3D portrait from a simple 2D image.

Essentially, the new feature has the ability to recognize faces and specific characteristics and make them lifelike. By eliminating the tedious steps that are needed to create 3D images, this tool will simplify the entire process for artists and designers.
Trend Themes
1. 3D Portraits - The trend of converting 2D photographs into 3D portraits using facial recognition technology now enables artists and designers to create lifelike images with greater ease and efficiency.
2. Facial Recognition Technology - The trend of utilizing advanced facial recognition technology to simplify the process of 3D image creation provides potential for innovation in various industries such as advertising and entertainment.
3. Consumer Applications of 3D Technology - The trend of making 3D technology accessible for consumer use through applications like Adobe's new 3D portrait tool presents opportunities for innovation and market expansion in industries such as photography and digital art.
Industry Implications
1. Advertising - Incorporating 3D portraits and facial recognition technology in advertising campaigns presents an innovative way to create more personalized and engaging content for consumers.
2. Entertainment - Using facial recognition technology and 3D portrait creation in the entertainment industry, such as in video games or animated films, can enhance the user experience and realism of characters.
3. Photography and Digital Art - The availability of consumer-friendly applications that create 3D portraits opens up a whole new market for photographers and digital artists, providing new avenues for innovation and creativity.
