Helpful Tips For Using LiveStache
By following these tips, you can be sure to get the most 'stache for your dollar.
The Eyes Are The Key To Good Face Detection
The main thing that Facial Detection programs are looking for is a pair of eyes, so keep them wide open. Usually glasses are no problem, but if LiveStache isn't finding your face, try taking them off.
Face Into The Light
Faces need to be very visible, and shadows or poor lighting can sometimes cause issues. As with photography, you'll get the best results if you stand between your friend and the brightest light in the room, so that they end up looking towards the light source. Likewise, if your device has a front-facing camera and you're using it in LiveStache, try holding the phone between you and the brightest light in the room, so that you're looking towards the light source. If the room has ceiling lights, look UP into the light and hold the phone above you so it's directly between you and the light source.
Avoid Hats, Bangs, Veils, and Masks
Anything covering or partially covering your face can sometimes confuse LiveStache. Remove hats, veils, and masks, and try to brush bangs back or to the side if you suspect they might be an issue.
Face Directly Into The Camera
The artificial intelligence algorithm used by LiveStache was "trained" on thousands of faces looking directly into the camera. If you turn your head away from the camera, or tilt your head too much in any direction, LiveStache may not be able to find your face and adorn it with a beautiful mustache.
Hold Still and Keep the Face in the Frame
If you're ducking, dipping, dodging, or shaking uncontrollably, you won't get the best results with LiveStache. Try holding the device very still, using two hands if necessary, or rest your elbows or wrists against a table or wall for more stability. Likewise, keep the person's face inside the brass ring. You should be able to see all of their face, including their chin and forehead. At the same time, their face should fill most of the brass ring, or it may be too small to be detected. Try stepping back or forward so their face is nicely framed inside the brass ring.
