PicsArt’s face swap takes your creative explorations to new dimensions. “Everything profound loves masks,” said Nietzsche. Do you have a flair for acting? Dream about your fabulous future career by putting your face on your favorite movie characters’ picture. Or start swapping and see how you’d look like in a meme or as the ancient Greek goddess born from the white foam. How about face swapping with Elsa from Frozen and controlling ice and snow in your Scandinavian kingdom?

Regardless of what you choose to do, creativity is more accessible with PicsArt’s state of the art tools and creative features. From classic features such as crop or collage to the advanced and innovative tool of cloning, our photo face swap feature provides everything for your creative journey.

Do you have an existing group photo in which everyone is perfect, except for one person? PicsArt will help you make professional-level edits by swapping out that person’s weary face for a stunning smile. Or perhaps you want to challenge the limitations of your physicality—check out how you’d look like in your friend’s or pet’s body—and celebrate life as endless transformation?  Just utter the magic command, “Scotty, beam me up!” and PicsArt face swap will provide all the tools for your instant teleportation. 

Simply open the PicsArt app, select a photo from your gallery, upload a picture from the internet or take a new shot with your camera, and engage in flights of fancy. Here is your easy step-by-step guide for creating and sharing your unique face swaps.

 How Do You Face Swap?

Step 1: Open PicsArt app and click + to import the background image.

Step 2: Click on Add photo to select the picture of the model you want to use to swap.

Step 3: Click Tools, crop the face of the model, make a mask, and save it to your gallery.

Step 4: Fit the mask to the background image and fix it to look realistic.

Step 5: Click on the FX option to put a filter so that the mask matches the skin tone of the background image (you can also put on a filter on the whole picture to make it look real) and use the Adjust option to edit, i.e. adjust opacity, fix saturation or the tone.

Step 6: Click on the Eraser option, lower the hardness, and erase the edges to make the mask blend in.

 Or perhaps you want to have fun and change your face on a picture with these simple steps?
