It includes Neural Art Styles Filters with 50 pre-sets that gives the artwork an artwork style look. The photos can be given an attractive look through the many filters and overlays present in it.
How to give your photo a cartoon look?
Here you have two options. In the first option, you have to click on the AI cartoon portraits in the ‘Categories’ tab in the app. It is quite easy and can give a cartoon look to your photo with one click.
However, if you want to make some changes in the photo by yourself, you can click on the ‘+’ sign in it and use other available filters, text, and effects. Apart from this, the most popular feature of Photo Lab is ‘AI Cartoons’. This feature is being used the most nowadays.
A ‘New’ tab is included at the bottom of the home page, which has ‘AI Cartoons’ written on it. In this tab, you have to click on ‘I Want My Cartoon’ and select your preferred filter from the many pre-set looks already there. Now here you have to select your photo and click on the ‘Next’ icon. This will give your photo a cartoon look.

If you do not want the “Photo Lab” watermark to appear in your picture, or if you want to use some other premium filters and effects, then you have to pay for it and buy a premium subscription.
