Prisma, the popular image editing app that turns photos into approximations of famous paintings, just got a major update on iOS.
The app now applies some of its filters offline without the aid of Prisma’s servers.
“Now that we’ve implemented neural networks right to the smartphones,” says the Moscow-based team behind Prisma in an interview with The Verge. “We have enough servers capacity to run full videos on them in the near future.”
According to Prisma Labs, post update the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus should process images in about three seconds, while the 6S and 6S Plus will take less about 2.5 seconds to “repaint” an image. The team adds there should be little to no effect on battery life, even with the images
The Android version of Prisma will be updated to support offline photo editing
