How to use FaceApp?

Have you ever wondered what you would like as a member of the opposite sex? You can find that out by using FaceApp, a Russia-based photo-editing application that lets you 'swap your gender' using simple photo editing skills. Here is a step-by-step guide.  

Step 1: Download FaceApp on your phone 

Step 2: Upload a photo from your gallery

Step 3: Select the Gender option from the bottom menu

After you do this, your face would be morphed to look like the opposite sex.

Step 4: Save & compare the images alongside!

Click apply, after you're satisfied with your look, then click on save. On the bottom you would see an option of 'Before and After', click that. It would present to you a before and after version of your picture, comparing your gender swap image alongside your original image. You can then save this image in your gallery!
