Now, app that automatically reshapes your face to look better

Wellington: An app called Pixtr has been developed, which promises to "put your best face forward."

What that means is that it automatically cleans you up like a magazine Photoshop artist.

Noses are thinned. Eyes are tweaked. Faces are re-shaped. Wrinkles, blemishes, even freckles - ever-so-lovely freckles - are history.

You`ll look fantastically plastic, and it won`t bear any resemblance to the dreaded face in the bathroom mirror.

The app`s co-creator, Avi Gadot, told a news website a nice founding story about how beautiful his wife is, and how he wanted to be able to take pictures of her that she`d actually approve of.

But we all know what this app is going to be most used for, and it isn`t spousal enhancement. It`s self-improving selfies.

If Pixtr becomes popular, and there`s every reason to suspect it will, there will be something like an arms race in profile photos.
