Bye Bye Camera App Removes People From Your Photographs
Living in a crowded place is quite cumbersome as you struggle to take pictures every now and then. Moreover, accidental appearances are another story. This is where the new Bye Bye Camera kicks in to remove any human from the frame of the photograph and taking its place the continuation of the shot. It does work well in some scenarios but other times it just creates a mess.
The app is a practical art project by Do Something Good in conjunction with artist Damjanski. The artist told Artnome that Bye Bye Camera is “an app for the post-human era… The app takes out the vanity of any selfie and also the person.” Here’s what the app description reads:
The Bye Bye Camera app is the camera for the post-human era. Every picture you take automatically removes any person. Finally you can take a selfie without yourself.
Altogether, the app is slow and creates a mess while removing people, leaving behind distorted pixels and residue. Nonetheless, it’s still quite fun to use. AI is moving fast and it would be wrong to presume the feature would not become part of our daily social media apps.
