Have you heard about Prisma, the newest sensation among Android users?
Though the app is not officially available on Android, people found APK files and started enjoying the unique painting experience.
The app has been launched on Apple Store about five weeks ago. And within a short time, it was downloaded 7.5 million times. Moreover, the company calculates the daily active users to be 1.5 million.
What Exactly is Prisma?
We always love taking photos and applying filters on it. That’s why the photo-sharing app Instagram became a huge hit. Along with the feature to share photos, it also gives users an ability to apply different filters to beautify the same.
Prisma is a bit different in purpose here. You can’t share photos with anyone here. Instead, you can turn your photos into a beautiful painting that no one ever recognizes it was actually a photo.
About a dozen of filters are available right now, using which you can turn your photos into beautiful paintings.
How to Download Prisma?
If you are an iOS user, you can download Prisma directly from the official app store. But for Android users, the story is not the same. Owing to the fact that the app hasn’t been released officially, you either have to wait a few days or download an APK file to serve the purpose.
Follow the steps I have given below to install Prisma on your Android device.
Step 1: Pickup your device and access the Settings panel. You can do it from notification area and list of apps as well.
Step 2: Scroll down a bit to the bottom to see a menu called Security. Don’t forget to tap on it.
Step 3: Now, you need to look at the option labeled Unknown Sources. It allows you to install apps from APK files. Just tick the checkbox right next to the label.
Step 4: It’s time to download the APK file now. You can get a lot of sources with a simple Google search. I have got a link here. You can use it or anything you like.
Step 5: Once the download is completed, open the file to initiate the installation. It may take a few seconds to finish the installation.
That’s all. You can now turn any photo into exquisite paintings within no time.
How to Use Prisma?
Usage is not a Herculean task. Just open the app and, you will get a button to click in order to upload the photo. On doing it, you will see a number of filters to choose from. Make the selection according to your interest.
In case you don’t want to install an app from a third-party APK and you still are obsessed with Prisma, you can try out an unofficial Prisma web app here.
You get most of the filters from the real Prisma app on the web app. And, it is possible to download the output file as well. Make sure you upload small photos into the web app because the larger the image, the longer the conversion process will be.
