Everyday: Take a Picture of Yourself Everyday and Make a Movie From It

Mar 23, 2011 - 4 Comments

You may remember that YouTube video that went viral a few years back called “Noah takes a photo of himself every day for 6 years” – it featured photographer Noah Kalina taking a self portrait every day over the course of six years, and then all the pictures are put together in a movie. It’s interesting to watch since people obviously change a fair amount over six years.

Now there’s an iPhone app that lets you do this yourself, it’s called EveryDay. It’s a simple but fun idea, the app reminds you to take a daily picture, and you line your face up on a grid, the longer you do it the better the end result. It’ll collect all your photos and then you can turn them into a movie just like the aforementioned famous one from Noah Kalina. Watch the preview video above to get an idea, near the end you’ll see how it turns out.

If this sounds fun to you, you can grab it from the App Store:

This is a great idea for an app that has captured a lot of peoples imaginations and it’s sure to be popular, it’s already been mentioned by several prominent tech blogs including TechCrunch and DaringFireball. This is the apps simple GUI:


Here’s the apps description:

Take a picture of yourself. Every day. Set reminders. Get into the habit. The more pictures you have, the better your Everyday app will be.

Line up your face with an adjustable grid or use an overlay of the last picture you took.

Publish to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or Flickr. Or have it upload automatically.

Make a movie. You’d be surprised how great the effect of a time lapse video of your face can be. Watch yourself change, just like a real person.

On a related note, we featured Noah Kalina’s portable MacBook Pro setup a while back.

    So…in other words it’s just another version of Daily Mugshot that has been out since at least 2008.

    Either this app can tell when you’re eating, or this guy never stops eating.

    I’m curious to know if it can perform multiple sequences; i.e. one sequence of your face, a sequence for another person (watch your children grow?), a sequence of the view out your window as the seasons change, and the like.
