Microsoft Research releases Face Swap

Microsoft Research has released Face Swap over at the Windows Phone Marketplace that allows you to swap people's faces around in photographs. Face Swap uses multiple face detection to identify everyone's faces and with a shake of your Windows Phone, the app swaps the faces around.

Once you've created your newly arranged photo, you can save it to your Photos Hub or share it directly to Facebook or Twitter. Face Swap is a free app that you can grab here (opens in new tab) at the Windows Phone Marketplace. It is a mango app so you'll need to be running Windows Phone 7.5.  Face Swap is sure to make for interesting Holiday group pictures.

  • It is also the first app to ever cause my phone to reset too!
  • LoL.. It worked fine with me. No reset.
  • Yea sure blame MS for user error.
  • About every other time I try and load a new picture it shuts the app down too. So I'm in the camp of this being a buggy app.
  • Caused Samsung Focus v1.3 (with OS 7.5) to reset upon opening.
  • this app actually looks kinda cool lol, (i usually hate apps that manipulates photos...)
  • No issues at all, maybe you have a memory card upgrade, lol
  • Closed on me the first time.  Doesn't recognize both faces the other times.  Oh well.
  • Works really well for me. Sent out a couple to friends and family. They all got a good laugh haha. Good app! Could be better at recognizing faces in pictures with more than 5 people.
  • Works great, was a good laugh at the office. My coworkers were asking me if there was an "IPHONE" version :P
  • It didn't close my Arrive down either.
  • This app is very well designed we need more apps like this its really promising the development that can be done to windows phone
  • Worked okay for most of the day. About 20 minutes ago, however, my phone restarted twice in a row when trying to open the app. So who knows. I'll keep using to see if whatver it is straightens itself out
