Boo!

Look at me!

Did that scare you? ;-)  Because it’s pretty freaky, if I may say so myself.

As much as I would like to take credit for this zombie effect, I didn’t have to do any work to achieve the ghoulish look (unless you call clicking on some buttons “work”). So no, there will be no makeup tutorial. :-P

What I can tell you is that you can easily do the same for yourself, or any other person’s portrait. All you need is a Google+ account…

  1. Go to your Photos page (located at https://plus.google.com/photos)
  2. Look for the following section at the top of the page:
    google_plus_halloweenify
  3. Follow the instructions, and voilà!

The zombified image of myself above isn’t the actual result — instead, you will receive a scarier animated GIF:

But because the full animation is pretty long and the file size is a staggering 9.7mb (!), I have isolated just one frame for you. :-)

Think the zombie effect is too scary? Prefer something prettier/cuter? They’ve got you covered too!

I don’t know how long this functionality will stay up — probably just until Halloween — so head on over to Google+ and give it a try!
