A New Google Feature to Convert Your Pictures into Beautiful Pieces of Art

Share this post:  
A few weeks ago Google introduced a new feature called Art Transfer that allows you to "transform your photo in the style of an iconic artist". This new functionality is available in the Google Arts and Culture app. Using Art Transfer you will be able to create unique artistic works through a combination of your own photos with styles from well-known artists including van Gogh, Frida Kahlo, Leonardo da Vinci, Edvard Munch, to mention a few. You can then share your final product as a still image or as a GIF.

To use Art Transfer, "open the Camera menu in the bottom bar of the Google Arts & Culture app and select “Art Transfer.” After taking or uploading a photo, choose from dozens of masterpieces to transfer that style onto your image. (And while you wait, we’ll share a fun fact about the artwork, in case you’re curious to know a bit more about its history.) For more customization, you can use the scissors icon to select which part of the image you want the style applied to."

Since the publication of this post, Google Arts & Culture released  Teacher Guide to help educators and teachers make the best of this platform in their teaching. Check it out to learn more.
