The Sum of Your Facial Parts

Miss B sent me this very interesting NY Times article about a software program developed by computer scientists in Israel that "beautifies" images based on a mathematical formula involving distances between facial features. 

The accompanying slide show illustrates before and after images of celebs and non-celebs.  Interestingly enough, James Franco's before and after shots were virtually identical.  Michael Cera, not so much.

Personally, I prefer all of the Before images.  The Afters look flat and dull to me.

Check it out.
