People “Facetune” Digital Facelifts To Look Better On Video Calls


Now that so many of us are working from home, many are being asked to report to virtual offices and classrooms for video calls. That means other people can see them, so rolling out of bed and wearing PJs might not fly with the boss. But one college student has shared some high-tech advice for looking fresh-faced while communicating on video conferencing.

Grant Rosenthal, a University of California, Berkeley student, recentlyposted a video on TikTokasking. “Wanna look less ugly in your videos without trying?” In the clip he explains how viewers can use a handy tool on Zoom - the “touch up” feature - in three easy steps. He says it will allow you to “Watch your skin be facetuned in real life.”

According to Zoom’s website, the touch-up function “retouches your video display with a soft focus. This can help smooth out the skin on your face, to present a more polished-looking appearance when you display your video to others.” And that’s something a lot of folks could use these days.
