MyHertiage’s Deep Nostalgia tool uses the power of artificial intelligence and D-ID to animate people in old family photos, enabling them to blink, move their heads, and even smile. Since launching just 5 weeks ago, 72 million animations have been created on the site. The animations are based on different sequences of gestures that can be applied to a photo, each originating from a pre-recorded driver video prepared in advance using MyHeritage employees. They launched with 10 such drivers, and today, that number has been doubled. Read more for a video and additional information.



These special animations, allow you to see your ancestors express a wider spectrum of gestures and emotions, like smiling wholeheartedly, blowing a kiss, nodding approval, and lots more. When you first animate a photo, the initial animation is selected by default so as to match the pose and angle of the person in your photo perfectly, and the special animations need to be selected manually.
