MyHeritage is an online genealogy platform that helps people to connect with their family histories. Earlier this year, they introduced MyHeritage In Color™, a new technology supposed to bring old family photos to life through colorization. But On June 12, the company took it a step further, introducing a tool that enhances photos by bringing blurry faces into sharp focus.
"When combined, MyHeritage In Color™ and the MyHeritage Photo Enhancer can reveal your ancestors as you've never seen them before," the company wrote on its blog. "The technology for enhancing photos was licensed by MyHeritage from the creators of the Remini mobile application. They developed machine learning technology to enhance photos by upscaling (increasing the resolution) the faces that appear in them. This produces exceptional results for historical photos, where the faces are often small and blurry, but works equally well on new color photos too. Enhancement works best on photos that feature multiple people, and allows you to go face by face to see each one enhanced."
MyHeritage really believes that it's the best technology in the world for this kind of work. "No other company has succeeded in developing photo enhancement technology of this quality. The results are crisp and truly outstanding."
