Live Portrait

A single photo is all it takes
to create the magic of video

Live Portrait

Based on D-ID’s reenactment technology, Live Portrait, breathes life into any still photo. The Live Portrait process uses a driver video to animate a person in a still photo to precisely match the driver’s head movement, facial expressions, emotions and even voice. This artificial intelligence-based technology brings a whole new dimension to photos and images, allowing them to be seen in a totally new and fresh way.


Our technology can automatically stitch animated faces back into to the original image they were taken from. This allows for much larger image sizes as well as the ability to animate multiple faces simultaneously.

Live Portrait is just one element of D-ID’s AI Face Platform. Our reenactment-based products offer groundbreaking capabilities, enabling the creation of highly personalized media using AI, specifically in e-learning, corporate training, marcoms, AI assistants, history and the Metaverse.
