This fun app allows you to apply filters to your photos to make them truly stand out from the crowd. By using Prisma’s wide range of filters, you can transform your photographs into paintings, mosaics, drawings and more. Many of the custom filters are inspired by famous works of art, so if you’ve ever wondered how you would look painted by an impressionist artist, why not snap a selfie and see what the app has to offer? Prisma integrates perfectly with Instagram and Facebook, so you’ll be able to share your masterpieces with friends.
