How to use Average Face DUO/PRO
Average Face | comments(0)

平均顔, average face


In the example shown above, faces of 342 girls were averaged by using Average Face DUO/PRO. Synthesizing this image was not an easy work because this app is not a casual automatic image synthesizer but just an image-synthesizing tool. In order to generate average face images like this one, you need to fully understand the nature of this app.


Find an image and import it to the app


Tap 'Open Face Image' button to import an image into the app. Ideal images for the synthesis are

  1. High quality images.
  2. Front view face images.
  3. Images of faces whose features are clearly visible.


Draft Mode


Just after importing an image, the 'Draft' mode is selected automatically. If not, select it.



Place the markers on the face as shown above. You may place them roughly except for four points; two markers on the eyes and two markers on the temples. These four points should be placed very carefully.

Importantly, DO NOT place the markers for the eyes at the pupils.


I repeat; DO NOT place the markers for the eyes at the pupils.


They should be placed at the TOP EDGES of the eye openings (or just above the irises).


Details Mode

Tap the 'Details' button to show more markers along the face contour and around the eyes as shown below.



Adjust markers along the face contour. For most cases, slightly adjusting markers around the jaw and the cheeks is sufficient to generate beautiful faces.


Markers around the Eyes



DO NOT place markers for the eyes as shown above, although they look very natural.


Place the markers in a weird way as shown below.




There are four markers around each eye; they are to be placed at

  1. the inner corner of the eye,
  2. the tail of the eye,
  3. the innter end of the brow, and
  4. the outer end of the brow.

If the brow is not visible due to the bang, imagin it.


Finish mode

Tap the 'Finish' button to show two additional markers for each eye.

For each eye, one additional marker is to be placed at the peak of the brow.

Another marker is to be placed at the bottom edge of the eye opening (or just below the iris).


At last, you can tap 'Register this face' button to finish the procedure for this face.

Repeat in the same for other faces again and again...

Import the second face. For the second and later faces, the 'Register this face' button is labelled 'Average' but that is not an important matter.


Place markers elaborately, register the face by tapping 'Average' button, import the next face, place markers elaborately, register the face by tapping.....and then you will see a beautiful average face on the screen.
