Quickly and easily hide faces in images, for privacy or for fun!

MaskerAid is a NEW app that allows you to quickly and easily add emoji to images.

Add emoji for jokes, to call attention to things, hide faces, and more!

When you load an image with MaskerAid, it will AUTOMATICALLY detect all the faces in that photo, and obscure them with an emoji. Using MaskerAid, it's quick and easy to obscure the faces of children, shy friends, coworkers, or randos that are in your photos.

Additionally, any images you share will automatically have ALL METADATA REMOVED. Privacy is your right, and MaskerAid helps protect it. MaskerAid removes hidden information like where the photo was taken, what device it was taken on, etc.

Using the intuitive gestures you'd expect, you can move/resize/rotate emoji to get them centered *just right* over faces and objects.

Plus, if you pay for the one-time in-app purchase, you can select from *thousands* of different emoji!

Once you've gotten your image just right, you can quickly and easily save it to your Camera Roll, or share it using other apps.

MaskerAid is written by one person, Casey Liss, who you may know from the Accidental Tech Podcast (ATP) or Analog(ue) on Relay FM.

MaskerAid does not collect your images, and does not collect unnecessary data.

Fantastic app!

I’ve struggled for a long time to do the simple thing of obscuring faces of people in my photos, when I use those pics in places where those faces shouldn’t be shown - a perfect example is uploading group pics to a dating app, where you want to make it clear which one is you!

I’ve tried all kinds of apps that blur, or use stickers, or whatever, and they all require a *lot* of work to get a decent result. They’re also usually littered with ads and make me feel like I’m probably giving them way more data than I want to.

This app is perfect. It’s gorgeously designed, and you can really see and feel the care and craftsmanship that went into it. I already purchased the in-app purchase for all emoji - it’s cheap, all emoji will be handy, and man do I want to support and encourage development like this!

Easily useful and powerful!

If you’re out and about taking pictures of what’s happening around you, it’s nice to get permission before posting people’s faces even though they’re in public. Well, that’s also not always possible, so this helps you protect their privacy by obscuring their faces with emojis quickly and easily!

It’s simple and quick to add more emoji, move existing emoji around, resize emoji, and export the image in a snap!

This app also strips the metadata for the photo, so if privacy is paramount for you — and it should be — this app makes protecting your privacy and that if others in your photos a snap!

Amazing little app for teachers.

I love to be able to share photos of my student’s work on my social media when I’m really proud of an assignment. Even with their permission (and the permission of their parents) I still feel a little icky sharing their faces. This will solve that problem!

I’ve done a few test runs and the app is extremely intuitive. Most of the time I don’t even need to adjust the emoji, the app covers the faces for me.

Highly recommended for parents/teachers!
