If you’re not already tired of the artsy, paintbrushed-look thanks to the popular photo filter app Prisma, now there’s an alternative straight from within Facebook Messenger.
The Icon8 bot is a service for both Telegram and Facebook Messenger that adds an artistic filter to your photos. All you need to do is attach an image in your conversation with the bot and it will send back an edited picture in an instant.
The first image that you receive is from a randomized filter, but you can choose from six selections (the most Prisma-esque is Gloss.) Just like Prisma, there is a little logo mark on the bottom right corner. It’s a free app after all.
There are plenty of Prisma copycats out there already, but this is a convenient alternative if you want to save space on your phone and avoid downloading an app, or would like to upload something from your desktop. Check it out on Messenger and Telegram.
