This is something you need to see in order to appreciate it. I don't have enough words to properly describe it but watching a video will provide all the basic information within seconds.

In short, You should see a new feature that converts still photographs into Deep Nostalgia™, a groundbreaking new photo feature on MyHeritage that allows you to animate the faces of your loved ones in still photos. This new addition to MyHeritage's suite of photo tools produces a realistic depiction of how a person from an old photo could have moved and looked if they were captured on video.

You can see examples of this new technology in the MyHeritage Blog at:

    I tried the new animation feature on a few family photos. The results are impressive, but more so with older photos of people you might not have known well. The animations of a photo of my father and one of an aunt I knew well just didn’t look like the people I remember.

    I've been having fun with this. A little Harry Potterish creepy but pretty amazing. Works better on some images than others but still a fun tool. I am super impressed with their Enhancement feature and the colorizer. Those are worth trying.
