Prisma is an app that can turn any picture you take into a work of art. Taking filters one step further, the app lets you put painting-like effects on your photos.

Available on the App Store for iOS, the app is expected to launch on the Google Play Store later this month.

The app can make your photos look like the paintings by renown artists such as Picasso, Van Gogh and Levitan.

Using the neural networks and artificial intelligence to analyze the image, Prisma provides an intricate design unlike what the other mundane filter apps can do. It is also being tested on 360-degree photos and videos.

Despite the heavy use of technology, the Prisma app is quite easy to use. Like Instagram, there’s a circular shutter button, toggle for flash, options to switch cameras, a settings icon and needs access to your current photo library.

All you need to do is take a picture or select an existing one, crop it, and look around to see which of the effects work. And before you know it, the app will apply the effect and even let you play around with the intensity.
