MSN Cartoon Beta (cool way to create smiley’s from photos)

Recently I stumbled upon a discussion on facial recognition and creating models from them. Came to know that MSN China had lunched a service called "MSN Cartoon Beta".

Chinese is like French to me; I know neither 馃檪


But I thought it would be an awesome feature to have for all Windows Live Services so tried my predict & clicking skills to get it working!

The following video demonstrates how to use the web based page to create MSN Cartoon without learning Chinese 馃檪


Before beginning with the application there is a small web based install which pops-up but you know which buttons to click if you have used Windows for long enough!

The last button click on the page gives you a zip file containing the newly created smiley's for all  your cool expressions... Now stop reading and check the video and the site 馃槈

If there is enough demand for audio commentary I will add voice to explain the different buttons and it's options.

    Thanks sukesh for it. Its cool, though, I am yet to try it out.

    btw have you seen cartoons characters of Popfly team, where the Popfly team had used their Cartoon or caricatures in Popfly.

    Was that made in this way or some other apps was used?

    can anybody tell how it was made?

    Nice. I’d also recommend you <a href="">Make A Cartoon</a> at <a href=""></a>, but a photo generator is very different from that site!

    Hi Sukesh,

    I am from Dubai. I tried to open this page but the message is this page you are trying to open is not found. Do you know why this happens? Any solution?

    I think this feature was discontinued due to whatever reason… Not sure what the plans are for re-use of that feature.
