If you’re on this page then you must have come across a video of a person singing O-Zone’s Dragostea Din Tei on your social media. Those videos are entertaining. While the internet would have you believe that is some sophisticated software at play, creating these fun little videos is as easy as tapping a button. I have made a list of all the talking photo apps to help you choose and recreate those videos. Let’s begin.

Before Using Talking Photo Apps

The apps listed below use AI to create video clips that can be described as ‘Deepfakes’. We don’t condone the use of deepfakes for spreading misinformation, racism, or other illegal and illicit purposes. Please use the apps for entertainment and fun.

1. My Heritage- Deep Nostalgia

My Heritage is a DNA discovery service that offers insight into your lineage and Deep Nostalgia is an AI-driven photo animator. It lets you animate your loved ones’ old photographs and re-live those sweet memories you had with them. You can animate photos by simply uploading a photo to the website and it creates an animated video in seconds. While the feature is free, video carries a watermark and you can animate only a limited number of photos. You can purchase a subscription to the service and unlock unlimited photo animations and other features. However, if you’re just looking to animate a few photos, it would be free of charge.

Biugo is a popular talking photo app that lets you create animated videos using just images. The app offers templates to create videos using existing photos and you can choose from a huge list of options. Simply select a template, add a few photos, and wait for it to process. After that, you can save the video to your phone or share it on social media. There are a few templates such as LMFAO’s Know It, and O-Zone’s Dragostea Din Tei.

3. Talkr- Make Pictures talk

Talkr is a straightforward app with one purpose, to make pictures talk. The app uses clever tricks to mark anchors at facial expression points such as eyebrows, eyes, lips, cheeks, etc. to map the face. After that, your template is ready. You can then record an audio clip using your voice, add speech to text, or upload an audio file. The app would process and generate an animated video with you speaking those words. The app doesn’t do a great job of recreating the mouth sometimes and the head movements aren’t that refined. However, Talkr gives you complete control over creating the video and you can make the picture say whatever you want. The app is free to use and puts a watermark which you can remove for $9.99.
