"Al Gahaku" app has recently turned out to become a sensation on social media, taking netizens by storm. The "Al Gahaku" app is able to tranform pictures of people into renaissance paintings. The application uses artificial intelligence to transform normal modern life images of people into old paintings. Moreover, it comes with a category of filters from the 15th century that users have to choose from.

Renaissance transformations

The "Al Gahaku" application has recently become very popular, as people have been looking out for innovative ideas and techniques during the lockdown. The user is required to select a photo of themselves and then choose the category of the painting that they would like to transform their image into, from a list of options on the app. The image is then transformed into an old renaissance painting. The app has however been criticised for not being able to perform well on the non-white faces and also because of it's ability to extremely whiten the colour of faces.
