The AI yearbook trend has recently taken the internet by storm, offering a nostalgic trip back to the ’90s through AI-generated high school yearbook-style photos. This online sensation has garnered widespread attention, with users enthusiastically sharing their own AI vintage photos on platforms like TikTok and Instagram.
This social media craze, akin to the previously popular K-idol filter, originates from the Epik photo application. Epik employs artificial intelligence to simplify and enhance photo editing, making it accessible to a broad audience. What makes this trend special is its ability to transform everyday photos into classic yearbook-style images without the need for a professional photoshoot. It includes retro elements such as clothing, frames, and more.
To avail of this unique experience, follow these steps:
1. Download the EPIK-AI Photo Editor app from the Apple Store or Google Play.
2. Open the app and go to the AI Yearbook section.
3. Upload between eight to 12 selfies.
4. Select your gender.
5. Click “Create Yearbook Images.”
The app will then generate 40 retro images of you, each portraying a different high school persona—from the nerd, preppy, sporty, and more.
There are two payment options available:
– For a one-time fee of P199, you will receive the photos within 24 hours.
– For a faster option at P299, the photos will be ready within two hours.
It’s important to note that the photos produced are randomly generated, meaning you cannot select specific templates. However, this unpredictability adds to the fun and surprise of the AI yearbook experience.
With these simple steps and payment options, you can embark on a journey back to the ’90s and create your own AI yearbook photos, joining the ranks of internet users who have embraced this captivating trend. Give it a try and relive the charm of the past with a modern AI twist!
