Tipit has launched an automated photo editing mobile app called Model. The iOS app enables amateur photographers to add artistic special effects to photos, turning ordinary pictures into “augmented reality” artwork.

The company says Model allows people to become their own graphic designer within one simple app.

The Model app lets people augment reality with graphics that have been used by photographers to create art portraits of professional models. The effects include “dissolve,” “image glow,” and “transparency.”

Now you can say, "I did this artwork myself," with Tipit's Model.

Model showcases the image processing graphics that Tipit offers professional developers in its software development kit, including filters that the user can manipulate to suit their own personal taste. The capabilities encompass a variety of realistic effects, including advanced image filters and “green screen” effects.

The graphics are developed using Tipit’s segmentation technology, which enables the app to accurately separate an image from the background. This segmented technology gives an accurate, crisp and realistic image separation from the background, which allows an AR feel in still images without their being in “real time.”

Additionally, the graphics are part of an automatic photo editing procedure that has not been seen before. Tipit said the graphics and editing capabilities that consumers will have is equivalent to the expensive features that professional photographers use in Photoshop, Illustrator, and other similar products.

Tipit’s graphics designer is used to create and apply different layers on the background and foreground, which creates an automatic edited effect. The photos created with Model can be saved on multiple platforms, including Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, or a phone camera roll.

“Model demonstrates the innovative image processing graphics that can be created with the Tipit SDK and our graphics designer studio,” said CEO Jonathan Rimon, in a statement. “This utilization for consumers as well as developers and brands truly illustrates how all of our graphics can seamlessly integrate into various social media platforms, providing an enhanced experience for all.”

Model is available for download on iOS devices through the App Store.
