    Things are still a little buggy, but you can rotate 3D faces, double-click to toggle the texture and even live morph in 3D
    WebMorph now shows 3D faces!
    (Double-click to demo)

    WebMorph is a web-based version of Psychomorph, with several additional functions. While WebMorph is optimized for averaging and transforming faces, you can delineate and average any type of image. WebMorph also has several batch functions for processing large numbers of images automatically and can even create moving gifs of your transforms.

    WebMorph is made possible by the kind help of Bernie Tiddeman, who developed and maintains the desktop version of Psychomorph. WebMorph uses the open-source Java library FaceMorphLib and is developed and maintained by Lisa DeBruine.

    WebMorph is currently in beta testing and is likely to remain so for some time. This means that there will be bugs and you cannot rely on the website being functional 100% of the time. Lisa will try to fix any problems as fast as possible, but she is the only person working on this project, so please be patient. If you're curious about the code or want to help with development, this project is open source at https://github.com/debruine/webmorph.

    WebMorph now has limited support for 3D faces. You can upload OBJ files and associated BMP or JPEG textures and view them in the delineator. You can also morph between two objects that have the same geometry. I will add further functions soon. New projects contain two example OBJs if you want to have a play.

    The menu items have changed a bit and I've removed or changed a lot of keyboard shortcuts to make them more compatible between web browsers. See what else is new at What's New? under the Help menu.

    Your project list is loading. This will take 5-30 seconds, depending on the size of your account.


    I've reinstated drag and drop for moving files and folders in the finder, and moving files to the light table, average box, and transform boxes. You can still move files between folders by selecting them, copying (C) or cutting (X) under the Edit menu, and pasting (V) into the new folder.

    I've made a lot of changes to how JPG and TEM files store their history. You can see the history in the Finder under the preview image or template (only for new files; your old files will not show a history). Let me know if there is other information that you would like about your files. Information cannot be stored in GIF or PNG images.

    We just upgraded from php5 to php7 and there have been a few uncaught bugs. The file upload problem is fixed now. Please let me know if you notice any further errors.

    I had some problems with registration and password reset emails not sending. I think that's been fixed, but let me know if you continue to have problems.

      File Info

      File History

    Drag images here to view or compare them.
    Drag images to reorder and double-click to remove them.

    Select template points to add them to the mask. Separate points with commas, lines with semicolons, and mask areas with colons (e.g. 18,19,20,21,22 ; 22,30,29,28,18 : 23,24,25,26,27 ; 27,33,32,31,23)

    Average images by selecting them in the Finder and clicking the average button, or by double-clicking on the average face to add selected images to the list. (You can no longer drag images to the average face.)

      Recently Created Images

      Transform images by selecting them in the Finder and double-clicking on the image to transform or transform dimension boxes. (You can no longer drag images to the boxes.)
