PhotoFit Me
Would you be a good eyewitness?
Now is your chance to find out with this free app from The Open University.
Select from 100s of features in the app and resize, reposition and adjust the skin tone to create a PhotoFit of yourself and your friends. You can also take our celebrity challenge and re-create the face of a famous person. When you are finished you can send to a friend, share the picture on Facebook or view it in the gallery.
By seeing how tricky it is to create an accurate PhotoFit through piecing together features like a jigsaw, you’ll appreciate why The Open University has helped the police to develop a new system to describe suspects. This new approach uses the whole of the face reflecting the way our brains work – making it easier to recall individual faces.
Want to learn more? The Open University’s ‘Introducing the Social Sciences (DD101) course’ is a great place to start. It’s an ideal introduction to discovering more about psychology, social policy, criminology and other fascinating areas.

Great fun


A great 'ice-breaker' for an iPad based training session - harder than it looks. I ask learners to photo fit the person next to them or if a group from one section their boss! Always works well. I know there is serious psychology underpinning it as well.

Why oh why!


Excellent app absolutely hilarious but why oh why must I share the pics on Facebook? Not everyone is so sad that they live their lives online

Check this out!
