MyHeritage Deep Nostalgia adds 10 new animations

Introducing Deep Nostalgia™ Special Animations's Deep Nostalgia™ has changed the way we look at historical photographs. Now, Deep Nostalgia™ has been dramatically expanded to include ten new animations. Here is an explanation of the new process you can see from the above video.

Deep Nostalgia™ ( is the magical MyHeritage feature, powered by D-ID, that allows you to see the people in old family photos blink, move their heads, and smile. Deep Nostalgia™ has taken social media by storm, with millions sharing their animations and reactions to seeing photos of their beloved ancestors come to life. Since its launch 5 weeks ago, 72 million animations have been created on MyHeritage.

This feature is based on different sequences of gestures that can be applied to a photo, each originating from a pre-recorded driver video that we’ve prepared in advance using MyHeritage employees. When we launched this feature, 10 such drivers were available. Today, we’re excited to announce that we have doubled the number of drivers. The 10 additional drivers released today, which we call special animations, allow you to see your ancestors express a wider spectrum of gestures and emotions, for example, smile wholeheartedly, blow a kiss, nod approval, and more. The special animations are available exclusively to subscribers on the Complete plan.

Now here is a photo from my collection. First, I will enhance the photo. 

 The enhanced photo definitely has more detail.  Next, I will colorize this same photo. 

Lastly, I will add some of the new Deep Nostalgia™ animations.

Whatever the results are with a single photo, you have to admit the effect is amazing.
