If you’re interested in having some silly fun (or maybe getting sent to the doghouse by your significant other) here’s an app for you.
FatBooth is an app that takes a head-on photo of a person’s face and adds.. oh.. maybe 200 pounds. It’s dead simple to use and generates surprisingly good results.
Using the app goes something like this:
Step 1: Start the app and press the button to bring up the camera.
Step 2: Line up the person’s shot (face-on photos only.. zoom with your feet to fill the outline overlaid on the camera) and snap the photo.
Step 3: It will do some facial feature detection, but then you have to simply tweak the eyes, mouth and chin locations. This is dead simple to do.
Step 4: Press the button and let it do it’s thang.
A few things to note:
1. Perhaps it’s more of a statement about how body-conscious our society is, but getting your wife or girlfriend to let you try this thing out may be very difficult.
2. Note that there is a delete button available once you view the results. Respect your photo subjects, offer to delete the photo if they want you to. Don’t be a dick.
3. You also have the opportunity to save the photo (either before and/or after photos) to your gallery. Once again, don’t be a dick.
Oh.. Since the Internet Forgets Nothing ™ I am not posting any before/after photos of myself.. however as if all this magic wasn’t enough, I can also confirm that IT WORKED ON MY CAT!
Sorry Midge. I had to post it.
