(Pocket-lint) – If you use Facebook and Instagram, chances are you’ve seen all your friends sharing Pixar-style cartoon selfies. All thanks to a new viral application, called Voila AI Artist, which takes less than five minutes to download to make your first animated photos. Here’s everything you need to know about this app, including how to use it and if there are any alternatives.
What is Voila AI Artist?
Voila is a photo editing app for iOS and Android. It allows you to upload face photo or capture face photo. Then, using a form of artificial intelligence, she transforms the photo into something resembling a cartoon character. Technically, it has four modes of manipulation: 3D cartoon, Renaissance painting, 2D cartoons and caricatures. The 3D cartoon mode is the most popular.
Once you’ve chosen and applied a mode, you can then choose from three different filters. For example, under Cartoon 3D, you can choose between Royalty 3D, Baby 3D, and Cartoon 3D. A fourth Voila option combines the three filters with your original upload in a collage view. You cannot make other changes to the image, including adjusting the eyes, mouth, or hair, or playing with color or contrast.
If you want to test Voila AI Artist on photos of celebrities, there is no need to go to Google Search. The app features celebrity image search, so if you ever wanted to see what Kim Kardashian West would look like as a Disney princess, now you can.
Once you are happy with your photo, you can share it on Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and elsewhere. You can also save it to your device.

Is Voila AI Artist free to use?
Voila AI Artist is free to use on iPhone and Android. However, it is loaded with advertisements. So there is, of course, a premium option without ads. Keep in mind that with the free version, you’ll see long full-screen ads (one or two, usually) after almost every image download. The premium version, Voila Pro, not only removes these ads but also removes the watermark and even speeds up the rendering process.
On Android, Voila Pro costs $2 per week, $4 per month, or $21 per year. On iOS, it’s $3 per week, $6 per month, or $30 per year (as of June 2022). A three-day free trial period is also offered with this option.

There are cartoonification apps, as well as filters in some of your most favorite social media apps, that will help you achieve the same cartoon effect. For example, Snapchat offers a Cartoon Face lens, a Cartoon lens, and a Cartoon 3D Style lens, all of which make you look like a cartoon character from Disney or Pixar. This first lens actually went viral last year – but with TikTok and Instagram users, who shared their Snapchat cartoons on those platforms.
