Lensa: The annoying AI-powered photo app that everyone is talking about

Lensa is an application that uses artificial intelligence to create digital portraits based on the photos that users send. Off the bat, the app appears to be a wonder, however, it has also caused a degree of concern about its effects on privacy.

Lensa is an AI-assisted photo editing app Lensa uses artificial intelligence algorithms to process photos and apply filters exactly where it thinks touch-ups are needed.


This powerful AI-based photo editing app was created by Prisma Labs . With it, those who use it will be able to make changes to their image in the most unimaginable ways, since it allows you to remove dark circles more than hide them, and even get rid of one or another wrinkle. Even unwanted moles have their days numbered.

With Lensa you can also change the size of the eyes or lips, and make the adjustments you want to make to the face. These options are not the only ones in this app, because it also allows you to change the background of the image and the focus . In a few words, a total edition can be made to show a totally different face.

Another option of the app worth mentioning is the so-called artistic styles, with which various styles are achieved in the photos that include distortions and color alterations.

How does Lensa work?

So far everything looks like a wonder, however, Lensa is what is called a paid application. To try it out, you’ll first need to download the Lensa app on your phone. Although there is also a free modality, which allows you to edit three applications a day with limited filters and photographic styles.


How Lensa works

But, if making three editions doesn’t seem like enough to the user, they can opt for a payment method to make unlimited editions, of course, it costs 6 euros per month or 30 euros per year. 

Additionally, Lensa has another one-year subscription , which also provides photo editing services, for $35.99. But you can use the app on a one week free trial.


Magic Avatars

Magic Avatars, is  an additional function within Lensa, here the intention is not to edit the photos, rather the intention is to generate a totally new image using artificial intelligence , and based on other photos that serve as reference.

Since we are talking about Magic Avatars, this being another type of service requires an additional fee. During the term of your subscription or free trial, you can get 50 avatars for $3.99, 100 for $5.99, or 200 for $7.99.

For the use of Lensa, there are some recommendations and limitations. For example, users are recommended to submit 10-20 selfies to optimize results . Likewise, it is recommended that the images sent should be close-ups of the face and with different backgrounds, facial expressions and angles.

One of the limitations of the app is that in order to acquire it, the user must be over 13 years of age.

Regarding its use, the application is designed to be intuitive and easy to use. Of course, to receive a service without limitations, those interested will have to be willing to pay the cost . We have proof of this when it comes to generating magical avatars that vary in price depending on the number of variations and styles.
