Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ability for one to flex their travels to exotic destinations is virtually non-existent. Fear not, for Fakecation is here to save your Instagram feeds. Simply pick a location, upload a headshot, and this web app will generate an image of you living your best life anywhere around the world!
What it does
This web application accepts a user-uploaded headshot and stitches it using OpenCV to a variety of vacation photos from around the world. The user simply has to select on the map where they wish to travel and in the blink of an eye, a high quality image of themselves is available for immediate posting to all social network profiles.
