Photo to Character Tips

Photo to character allows users to either upload a photo or take a photo to generate a character. The character can then be edited further in the Character Creator. Please note, this feature is for Contemporary characters only.

Generating a Character from a Photo

You have two ways you can provide a photo to create a character:

  1. You can take a photo using your computer camera by clicking the Open Camera button and following the instructions.
  2. Upload a photo by dragging and dropping it into the dialog box or click browse files and select a file from your folders.


The option to generate a character from a photo will also appear if you access the Character Creator from the homepage.

If you open the camera to take a picture, a circle will appear where you can line up your face. Once the circle turns green, you can take the photo:

For best facial detection on the photo, keep these in mind:

  • Use a photo with only one face. The tool can only recognize one face at a time.
  • Remove face coverings before taking the photo. Use the character creator to add any accessories after the character has been created. 
  • The face in the photo should be well lit.
  • The face in the photo should face towards the camera. Side-facing photos may not always get successful results.
  • Photos of animals will not produce any results.

Images must be either JPG or PNG and no larger than 15 MB.
