Pixar's drawings are part of many people's lives, of course, everyone has their own preference for films, but each work awakens a common desire in viewers: to imagine what their image would be like in the graphic style of audiovisuals. Now, you don't have to stay just in the imagination, you can transform yourself into a Disney studio drawing thanks to the Voilà App.
To use the artificial intelligence (AI) application is very easy, just choose the drawing style and send a selfie of yourself or search for a celebrity. In addition, the app allows you to use a photo from your gallery.
The Voilà App has four different image transformation modes: 3D cartoon (Pixar style), renaissance (pictures in the style of 2th century paintings), XNUMXD cartoon (cartoon style) and caricatures. Each of the options offers three different styles per photo, which you can share on social networks.

How to use the Voilà APP
Before starting the tutorial, you need to download the application, which is available for Android and IOS devices. After downloading from Play Store or App Store, follow the steps below.
Step 1. As soon as you open the app, you will enter the main screen and you will be able to choose the categories of drawings. Select one of the alternatives.
Step 2. After choosing one of the options, on the new screen you will find three alternatives. “Grant permission” allows the app to access your device's media files. “Camera” will open your phone's camera for you to take a selfie. “Celebrities” opens the search bar to search for artist photos.
Step 3. For the progression of this tutorial, the option chosen was celebrities.
Step 4. Search for the name of the artist that you like the most. In the case of this walkthrough, we chose Corey Taylor, lead singer of the band Slipknot and Stone Sour.
Step 5. Once you've chosen your preferred photo, tap on it. On the new screen, just tap on the “Use” option.
Step 6. Now just wait. The process is pretty quick.
Step 7. Ready! Your edit is now complete.
To save the image to your gallery, just tap the up arrow in the upper right corner. In addition, after finishing editing, you can share your photo through social networks, whether on Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, among others.
As you can see, the result of App Voilà really impresses, but in addition to being used in photos of people, we can also use images with characters from the geek world. For example, Zoro from One Piece.
Or you can still try a photo of Naruto.
The people of the video game world are not left out either. Ellie, from The Last Of Us, looks really cool in the 3D cartoon style.
And even Kratos, a grumpy God with an angry face, looks cute with the Voilà App.
It is worth noting that the application does not accept all images, in many cases it cannot detect the face in the photo, especially in cases of character photos.
Another point that is also important to note is that the app is only free for three days, after which you need to purchase a license to be able to enjoy the app. There are three package options:
1- R$ 10,99 per week;
2- BRL 20,99 per month;
3 – BRL 109,99 per year.
Without a doubt, the Voilà App provides great entertainment and causes fun moments. However, some are afraid to use this type of application due to privacy policies, which makes a lot of sense. See below for some information on this subject.
According to Wemagine.AI, the company that developed the application, Voilà AI Artist collects different types of information for different purposes, with the aim of improving the service for users.
One of the types of data collected is photos on the device. Remembering that to take a selfie, choose an image from the gallery and even save an edit, you need to grant the app permission to access your camera or camera roll. According to the developers, photo albums are not collected, even if the user has given access permission to them.
In addition to photos, the app may collect information that your browser or mobile application sends whenever you visit the Company's Service or when you access the Service by or through a mobile device (“Usage Data”).
This Usage Data may include information such as your computer's Internet protocol address (e.g. IP address), browser type, browser version, the Service pages of the company you visit, the time and date of your visit, time spent on these pages, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data.
“We also make use of data with the help of Google Analytics through their Firebase product. With the use of Google Analytics (Firebase), data such as IP address, device model, screen resolution and operating system, session durations, your location is collected. Based on this data, we analyze your needs and interests of your needs and improving our services”, explained the company.
The company claims that it does not use the photos and facial features for any reason other than to provide users with the portrait/editing functionality of the Voilà Ai Artist App.
Also according to Wemagine.AI, the data collected is for:
- Provide and maintain the Application Services;
- To notify you of app service changes;
- To allow users to participate in interactive Service features of the App when people choose to do so;
- To provide customer support;
- To gather analysis or valuable information so that the company can improve the services;
- To monitor the use of the Service available in the app;
- To detect, prevent and resolve technical problems;
- To fulfill any other purpose for which users provide;
Importantly, the company has configured Google Cloud Platform to delete photos and the information associated with the photos within 24-48 hours after the photograph was last used in the app. This way, users have the possibility to revisit the photos for additional modifications during that time.
