Another AI portrait generator is going viral, but instead of turning you into a K-idol, you’ll be teleported to yearbook pictorial in the '90s. Tons of content creators and even local celebrities such as Yassi Pressman, Megan Young, Kryz Uy, and many more have jumped on the trend. So if you’ve been curious to know what you’d look like as part of the cast of Fresh Prince of Bel Air or you just want to relish in nostalgia, here’s everything you need to know about the retro yearbook AI portrait generator.
What Is the EPIK - AI Photo Editor?
Many of you are probably dying to know what app is used to create this AI portrait, and it’s EPIK (pun intended). EPIK - AI Photo Editor is another brainchild of SNOW Corporation, the same South Korean company that created the Snow AI Profile app where the K-Idol AI portrait generator is found.
Their newest and most popular filter to date is the Yearbook Themed AI Portrait, which generates vintage-looking yearbook photos of you. We’re talking big volumized hair, large framed glasses, turtle necks, and '90s clothing.
GUIDE: How to Make Your Own Yearbook AI Photo Using EPIK App
1. Download the EPIK-AI Photo Editor App
2. Tap on “AI Yearbook”
3. Read the disclaimers and tips
When you click on the “AI Yearbook” a tab will pop up showing a disclaimer on how you may receive unsatisfactory results. Tips on how to generate satisfying AI portraits are also placed and are written as such:
- Different results are generated each time depending on the submitted photos.
- Results will be more satisfying with clear photos.
- It’s best to have a diverse range of expressions, angles, and backgrounds.
- You can choose the time to generate results.
4. Upload eight to 12 selfies
After reading the disclaimers and the tips for generating and granting the app access to your photos, continue forward. You can upload eight to 12 selfies, make sure to follow the “Good Photo Examples” and avoid the “Bad Photo Examples” if you want the best results.
5. Select your gender
6. Choose a payment option
Unfortunately, this is a paid service, and to make things a bit more challenging, there’s also a chance that the packages are sold out with the number of people trying this trend. That said, if you still want to push through, there are two payment options Standard and Express.
Standard costs P199 and will provide you with 60 images, which will be ready in 24 hours. Express costs P299 and will provide you with 60 images in two hours.
7. Click "Create Yearbook Images” and wait for your photos to be generated.
Depending on the service that you paid for, you’ll either have to wait a whole day or only two hours for your highly realistic vintage yearbook-themed AI portraits.
