Access WebMorph
We have way more demand than we can meet right now with a free service, so I am only authorising academic email addresses. However, guest login gives you access to everything that the account version does except save files between sessions. You can always download your files after each session and re-upload them. Please do not request an account unless you require long-term academic use.
The following information is optional, but helps us figure out who our users are.

(to ID biases in account granting)
In order for this website to work properly, we have to store small files (called cookies) on your computer (one that stores your session ID to make sure only you access your account, and 3 used by Google Analytics to collect anonymous use data). Almost all websites do this, but an EU law requires that we obtain your consent first. By logging in or registering, you agree to this.

    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. See the Help Videos under the Help menu to see some tutorials on what you can do in WebMorph.

    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!

    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.


    You can now delete folders and all of their contents in one step. Just select a single folder and cmd-delete. The full folder will go into the Trash and you can move it out by dragging. I tried to build in as many checks as possible to make sure you can't accidentally delete things you don't mean to, but file a bug report immediately if there are any unintended consequences.

    Auto-Delineate uses the external company Face++, who impose usage limits on free accounts. If your auto-delineations are failing and the error message says "CONCURRENCY_LIMIT_EXCEEDED", just try later. I'm looking into how often this is used and how much a paid license with more access would cost.

      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 also drag images to the average box to add them to the list.

      Recently Created Images

      Transform images by selecting them in the Finder and dragging them to the 'image to transform' or 'transform dimension' boxes. You can also double-click these boxes to add the selected image.
