Popstamatic is an experiment in image processing on handheld devices. It uses face feature detection and face contour detection methods to generate images which are reminiscent of Andy Warhol’s 1950s silkscreened pop art.

Users can create their own with Popstamatic. Processing a new or existing photo takes only 20 seconds, and you can choose from among five different color options. To create a colorful silkscreen like Warhol’s famous paintings of Marilyn Monroe, start with a clean portrait (good lighting, simple background). But don’t stop there. The possibilities are endless.
