Is There Such an App for Facebook?


Which allows someone to censor the eyes of someone who may be caught in an embarrassing facebook photo?
A "Black Box" app which allows someone to censor a photo without having to delete the entire image?
Anyone out there able to write code to create one?

Nah, Val...
Pictures from the club of people being with other men or women who are not their spouces. I get some nice shots but cannot use them because some politician happens to be in the background with his girlfriend instead of his wife.
Stuff like that.

Besides...
With so many Black tech-based entrepeneurs talking about 'opportunity' - maybe one can write the code (and them license it to facebook) so that I can easily cansor photos.

The technical challenge would be less daunting than the organizational one.

Facebook itself would be the sticking point for enabling such an app.

But Craig, facebook has a page which enables people to build apps and/or tools. I just need to be able to put that black bar over the eyes of people in many of my photos from the club.

If you're uploading the photo, then just use Phixr, Facebook Photo Editor, or one of about half-a-dozen inline Facebook photo editor applications.

oh... I'm not that into facebook - didn't know any tools existed. Thanks.

Open the pic in "Paint."

use the rectangle tool on black and draw them in

save the file to your computer with a new name

upload to facebook

Phixr is cool but you don't need it probably.

@ DD - It would just be easier to click a button on facebook itself while tagging photos. Most nights I have over a hundred photos and going back-and-forth is too much work.
