Look like Teri Hatcher, in seconds!

November 25, 2008

Blog Guy, I heard about some awesome new software that automatically makes you look better in photos than you do in real life!

Yeah, I know all about it. It was developed by computer scientists, and it works! The software applies a formula to turn original shot of this woman, on the left, into the more attractive version on the right.

Of course my blog team put it to the test in our lab, with impressive results.

Look at these original photos of Nick Nolte, Teri Hatcher and Angelina Jolie, compared with their “improved” versions on the right. This amazing software even puts them in better clothes, and added sunglasses for Nolte. How does it know?

I agree Sheri, the one on the left looks like a pretty girl, the one on the right, looks like her brother in drag.
