Magic Avatars: This is the New Editing App that Pakistani Celebrities are Obsessing Over [Images]

Celebs like Uzair Jaswal, Arsalan Naseer, Mahira Khan and other shared interesting portraits made on the Lensa app.

An influx of vibrant AI self-portraits took over social media last week, that were created on the Lensa app. The viral image editing app, created by Prisma AI, morphs selfies into what the company refers to as “magic avatars”. Sure enough, our celebrities also jumped on the bandwagon as well.

Celebrities like Mahira Khan, Uzair Jaswal, Arsalan Naseer, Ali Zafar, and Anoushey Ashraf shared their AI magic avatars and garnered praise for them.

Take a look:

Fans couldn’t resist making some charismatic avatars of our former Prime Minister, Imran Khan, from his prime time before joining politics. So good-looking!



Lensa, which was launched as a photo editing app in 2018, went viral last month after releasing its ‘magic avatars’ feature. It uses a minimum of 10 user-uploaded images and the neural network, Stable Diffusion, to generate portraits in a variety of digital art styles.

Social media has been flooded with Lensa AI portraits, from photorealistic paintings to more abstract illustrations. The app claimed the No. 1 spot in the iOS App Store’s ‘Photo & Video’ category earlier this month.

Lensa currently faces criticism, mostly because of artist attribution. Although it is claimed to have been “built on Stable Diffusion’s free, open-source image generator,” some have discovered that the reason why so many avatars can be generated in a short amount of time is because the technology modifies existing artwork from real-life artists.
