Face app experiences

I’m curious what others experiences are with face app. Is it even close at guessing what you’d look like as a woman? .. I did it and I can definitely see me in the photo, in fact I started crying even, if that is even close to what I can grow into.. don’t wanna get my hopes up though

Not an experiance. As I would NEVER use such an instument.

 

Not because of the potential legal implications. I doubt if they have changed the T&C's in the favor of the user since this was last spoken about in here But because of the false sense of what you could be. Granted you may see some of you in there. This is because the template was your own face.

 

 

Heres the terms and conditions that makes the most of what you give them.

Further, FaceApp does not claim ownership of any User Content that you post on or through the Services. You grant FaceApp a nonexclusive, royalty-free, worldwide, fully paid license to use, reproduce, modify, adapt, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display your User Content during the term of this Agreement solely to provide you with the Services.

 

So what it basically means is. You can keep the original content. Thats your face. But you give them the right and this is forever to use the picture you create to use  as they see fit.

 

 

I  also wrote some on this before regarding the terms and conditions. Save you searching let me give you an insight.

So say for instance just as a senario. You are in your own closet. Faceapp can use your picture of you as male or female whichever the case maybe on a bill board across the road from you for all to see and there is not a darn thing you can do about it. To top that they do not even have to pay you royalitys for said use.

 

 

So just be careful what you knowing or unknowningly agree to. Read the small print.

 

Section 4 if your interested

 

 

 

if you use face app or such like then good luck to you. But do not forget they do not make these apps just so a person can see what they look like as whatever. They do it to make money. never be under the illusion they do it because they are kind and would never do anything to harm anyone. There goal is just to build up a nice fat bank balance. I have been in the corperate world for a while. Its not a place for the faint hearted at times as they will walk all over you if its in there interest. Remember Cambridge Analytica? Data harvesting for there own personal gain. Its much the same but Cambridge Analytica was asking questions disguised as a personality quiz to suck your personal information out of you.

 

Also:

 

Dont expect you are ever going to look like how the app shows what you will look like if you go through the process of a real world transition. Sorry to shatter anyones dreams but thats the way it is.

 

Again show me someone who looks as face app showed them after a transition. I will concede and eat humble pie by the metric ton.

I have never used it but, although tweaked things a bit in programs like Gimp from time to time (normal offline photo editing), more usually like to play with makeup when I get the time as the results can be used when going out (at least the sensible ones lol). My opinion of most of the resulting photos, which are are often of teenage girls, is that they smooth the skin etc to make someone look much younger. I would doubt anything other than major cosmetic surgery would make such a difference and that would be risky, very expensive and, in the long run, a temporary result as skin continues to age. In my opinion such programs are designed to apeal to the vanity of the user and also as Maid in Bedlam implies, actually get the company a database of mugshots as they can probably easily reverse the process to get the original picture (which may well be stored at the beginning anyway).

Have seen a number of people post on Twitter that they think they looked better than FaceApp predicted before and after transition. 

 

Luckily no billboards across the street from me yet, let alone one with my faceapp pics on it.

I've used it, and was horrified by the results. It aged me twenty years!  No I didn't likee lol. Snapchat filters are much more flattering haha.

I make an effort to avoid things like FaceApp and don't even have snapchat. I don't alter or touch up any of my photos. I make it a point to put myself out there so as not to mislead people and make someone else feel bad about themselves. The filtered/face app pics I've seen are pretty cringe. Like someone takes a selfie, runs it thru face app, then posts it all proud, "look at me!" Then they go on being depressed that they don't look like that. 

So no, you likely won't grow into whatever face app gives you. But that is not a bad thing. Whatever you get will be good and you can be happy with the results.

Hi @Kelli321  I view those kind of things as just for entertainment. When I did the FaceApp I got this. Real me on the left and face app me on the right. Nothing alike or even close. I really wish I looked like that. Lol

Since I’m not out yet this is what came out. Aside from the narrower jaw and the hair it’s pretty close.. I will have facial feminization to be sure,  just for my own self image and how I see myself as but I feel it’s within the realm of possibility .... if anything, I can look at that face and not see a complete stranger... seems fun anyhow...

Don’t get me wrong, those apps are OK and they do make people feel good, it’s just that they can’t predict with any accuracy what someone will look like. I talked with a plastic surgeon on the phone and she told me that even the best plastic surgeon in the world can’t make you look exactly like the person in the photo. I know I about cried when she told me that. Anyway, these apps are fun to play with and if it makes you feel better than you shouldn’t stop using them. I think if it makes you happy, do it. Lol

It gives me a little hope. Though I’ll be wearing wigs for the rest of my days.. lol.. though it’ll be nice to be proud of my “female” hips and butt instead of being the butt of jokes ... at least I have that going for me ;-p

Kelli, I hope I didn't discourage you. That wasn't my intention, not at all. I just wanted to point out that they shouldn't be your only go to for how you want to look. I haven't seen the real you but I can bet you are absolutely beautiful. I just wanted you to know that you don't need any app to tell you how you should want to look. And as far as having to wear a wig, well, my hair is thinning on top and I am going to be living with wigs until I die. There are more than a few friends here that have to do the same. And don't get me started on hips and my butt. Still waiting on those to develop. The only thing I see happening is that my "man" belly is slowly going away, THANK GOD! lol!

I agree with this. Lifes far to short. The point i was making is. Just be careful what you sign up for and if it may have concequences good or bad then be preapared for them.

 

I would still never use it myself as maybe I wouldnt be able to take the fact that i could find myself on the back of a milk carton or in a russian catalogue for sex toys or even something more ghastly and not get paid or get any positive credit for it.  Sad as it may seem none of this is done from the goodness of someones heart but all for profit. Plus dont expect you will look like how an app depicts you. As @Holly Elizabeth says, no plastic surgeon in the world is going to be able to give you the results you have been shown. So be able to handle that news. Its not really going to happen. Playing with these things can give you a false hope situation. No one needs or wants that. I always thought I was going to have the looks of audrey hepburn and a body to match.  How disilusioned was I? and i aslo agree. @Kelli321 you picture looks awesome

Believe me, I’m a realist. I truly appreciate the feedback. Until I came here I was totally lost and now I feel encouraged. That I’m having conversation with the very people who’s example I wish to follow, and being accepted into this community of amazing and courageous women has done more for me mentally and spiritually in the last few weeks than the rest of my life combined.

Just remember Kelli Every persons transition is unique to them. Consider it more a guide. What i did and what happened to me personally will be a little diffrent to what others may have experianced. The emotions, The life experiances, The expectations Etc etc. Follow your own heart but while on that road you may see signs and milestones dotted about what have been left by others before you. Some will aid you towald your own emerald city. Watch out for the witches and stick to the path. You will make it if you want to.

 

As far as wigs are concerned your are not alone. I was lucky enough to have almost all my hair when i came to the start of my path. Some are abot in the same position. You do what you have to.  Or you could go forwald in the style of @LusciousTheLock and enjoy it. But whatever you do give it your personal best.

I think I'm immune to the faceapp thingy... Sweaty me versus the feminine version... Apparently.

Awe, thanks. If only I could have the bloomin prickly stuff stop growing on my face. Just about scrape through an 8hr shift at work. Shaving everyday does get sore. I tend to let myself go a bit at weekends. Roll on the Laser shops reopening!

I used Faceapp for a bit of fun and this was the result.

But honestly, I think I prefer my profile picture which is all me, with just a little photomagic makeup.

      Hey, this news (long time coming) made me smile. Sounds like you are in a good place emotionally and physically.
    • DonkeySocks
      Sounds like a great day. Thanks for sharing.
    • DonkeySocks
      Oh, and I think a loose, long skirt looks more gender-neutral than a form-hugging knee-length skirt, when you have thigh/hip curves. Kinda draw the eye down to the lower leg instead of sticking at the curves.
    • DonkeySocks
      Plaid flannels in a size or two larger than your usual shirt size. Lace-up boots or ankle-high shoes, even if you're in a skirt. A masculine hat over the short haircut. Turtleneck shirt or sweater. Leather bracelets/wristlets or a masculine watch. So many people associate skirts with females that they will gender based on the skirt without looking at anything else, but if you're in pants, a hat can really help. Also, straight-cut jeans look more generically masculine than sweatpants do, I think. You will have to experiment with size because of the men's jeans not being made for your hips. If you live in an area with a farm store that sells Carhartt brand jeans you might try those.   When you want to look twink and still make people do a double-take, you might try a hat, a button-down shirt that's more dressy than flannel, but still a size or two larger so it won't fit your curves too closely, and high-top shoes. All that with a skirt. Also, plaid skirts might make people think more masculine, depending on the color.

      The Scots and Irish, and gay men I know wear a Kilt which is a skirt of sorts.  I have a couple used for various statements I like to make. Mine are not tartan plaid, one is black and another is a pinstriped fabric, but definitely male attire to most people.  For me they are gender neutral.  Utilikilt and Stump Town Kilts are where I have gotten mine.

      National Center for Transgender Equality (HQ in New York, but active nation wide) Transgender Law Center (San Francisco based, but active nationwide.) Trans Life Line which is listed on our page in Suicide prevention   Local LGBTQ Centers have Trans Programs, and can be found here: https://www.lgbtcenters.org/LGBTCenters Donations can be earmarked for Trans Programs.   Equality Texas is working to help Trans and Families in the current legislative maelstrom.   I will quit there, because there are many groups that will be happy to receive donations.

      Hey all.  My company has started a business resource group for LBGTQ+.  I somehow managed to get picked for a chair position on the board.  We are just starting things up and will be discussing plans for pride month this week.  Part of what the company is looking to do is make a donation to a LBGTQ group that supports the community in a positive way.  Something that is nationwide or west of the Mississippi River would be preferred.  So far we have suggested PFLAG and Pride Sports USA.  What other groups would you all suggest. I would like to find something more trans related to suggest to the group.  Even if it's something local we can look into it.     I am sure I will be looking for more help as I go through this journey as I am newer to the group.  Thanks in advance for all you all do.

      What used to work for me early in transition before ‘something’ shrunk into obscurity, was a medium absorbency pad along with a moderately tight pair of panties. I would wear that to the gym and I had no issues with bulges. You again look great as usual.   Susan R🌷
    • Elizabeth Star
      Thanks everyone. I do like this outfit but the downside is keeping the parts in place all day. I know I could wear a pair of two of tight undies to get the same effect but I’m weird and don’t like panty lines in leggings. I just remembered I have some cutoffs I could try this with when I get rid of these pasty-white winter legs.    I love this thread. Everyone has great looks.

      A Believing Sonnet  Numbness is close to godliness when I miss you.  Feeling is believing when you speak to me.  At lunch my hands keep busy spooning miso soup,  as I count noses, yours and mine don’t equal three.  What women wear means nothing to my poetry,  but I remember all the dresses you wore this fall,  as if outside visions of cotton mattered to me— 
 as if a fitbit counted important feelings for all.  Do brown leather boots with black heels mean  anything to a small wallet and a phone poem?  I count the times you smile infinity beams 
in disgust at my hope to dispatch all wrongs.  My feet don’t remember bread gave them power.  My words don’t know how I can love the hour.   —— Davie

      While I'm not an expert (Hey, I went the other way), I can say that it takes a LOT of weight training to build big muscles on E. You'd want to focus on your upper body (Arms, chest, shoulders) and core work (Waist, obliques). Fun fact: If you do your obliques (those are the muscles on either side of your waist) with a weight, the muscle swells and you'll have a more boyish appearance. The thing is, that if your body is only producing female levels of T, it's going to take a pretty major lifestyle change. I spend two hours in the gym every morning and I pass pretty easily as female. If you want to build muscle mass, it's gonna be work.   Otherwise, you seem pretty on-point. Binder. Short hair, etc... I'm sure some of our other FtMs can chime in with better advice, but Welcome to Transpulse! We're glad you're here!   Hugs!

      I like synthwave music, I usually have that going for work or when I work out, or some video game soundtracks. I do like mainstream music if it is 80's or older, or Weird Al.
