Face­book Ac­quires MSQRD Face-Swap­ping App

Face­book re­cently pur­chased the face-swap­ping app, MSQRD, which as its name sug­gests, al­lows smart­phone users to swap faces of peo­ple on pho­tos. The app was de­vel­oped by Be­laru­sian com­pany Mas­quer­ade, and has many fil­ters that are funny and hi­lar­i­ous. “At Mas­quer­ade, we've worked hard to make video more fun and en­gag­ing by cre­at­ing fil­ters that en­hance and al­ter your ap­pear­ance. Now, we're ex­cited to join forces with Face­book and bring the tech­nol­ogy to even more peo­ple,” said Eu­gene Nev­gen, Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer of Mas­quer­ade. ________________________________

Flickr's Photo Up­load Tool, Uploadr, No Longer Free

Photo-shar­ing site Flickr has done the un­think­able by mak­ing its photo up­load­ing tool, Uploadr, ex­clu­sive to Flickr Pro mem­bers only. “The big­gest change is that we are mak­ing the desk­top Auto-Uploadr a Flickr Pro-only fea­ture, giv­ing Pro mem­bers ex­clu­sive ac­cess to the tool. This fea­ture lets you ef­fort­lessly up­load all of your pho­tos from wher­ever they are be­ing stored, while mak­ing them ac­ces­si­ble from any de­vice. If you are al­ready a Pro mem­ber, you won't see any changes to your ex­ist­ing sub­scrip­tion,” Matthew Roth, Com­mu­nity Man­ager for Flickr, wrote on Flickr Blog re­gard­ing the change. ________________________________
