Just three days ago, we announced the release of Deep Nostalgia™: a groundbreaking new feature that allows you to animate the faces of your loved ones in still photos. This feature truly takes “bring your old family photos to life” to a whole new level — and it’s gone a new level of viral in turn!

Over 1 million photos were animated in the first 48 hours alone. Today we expect to pass the 3 million milestone. Users have responded with wonder and emotion: some were awed to see ancestors they’d never met — some from over 100 years ago — move, blink, and smile, while others were moved to tears witnessing their lost loved ones in motion after so many years with only still photos to remember them by.

“It makes me so happy to see him smile again,” one user said after animating a photo of her husband, who died 4 years earlier. “It’s as if they are looking at you and your surroundings and seeing how much things have changed,” said another user. Reporter Joe Fitzgerald Rodriguez commented that the feature gave him a chance to see his late father’s face move again after he lost the only videotape he had of him years ago.
