How Facetune Works

If you have ever used a photo editor, you are probably already familiar with the way Facetune works. Users can use the many features on the app to beautify their pictures and sometimes, alter their appearances.

Facetune stands out from other editing apps for many reasons. First, users can edit both photos and videos. In this digital age where video content is devoured thanks to TikTok, YouTube and Instagram Live, amongst others, it’s not surprising that users love this app.

Second, the app has many filters that users can add to their images and videos. These include teeth whitening, contouring, skin smoothing and various lighting effects, to name a few. This ability to transform or enhance a person’s appearance makes the app very appealing to users.

  • Backdrop: The backdrop feature allows users to change the background of their pictures.
  • Retouch: Facetune has many AI retouch tools to enhance a user’s looks. These include Heal, to get rid of blemishes, Smooth to smoothen out the skin and Texture to add texture after smoothening. There’s also Conceal to get rid of those pesky smudges under the eye.
