Great software. Nice interface. Fun to use! Blur to Focus Productions post team uses 2D and 3D software to create effects for films and TV shows.

Anton Kozikowski, Creative Executive, Blur to Focus.
The Moonjee blog has a post where the race of the model is changed. I've noticed if you squint, this is even more effective. http://www.moonjee.com/blog/?p=6 This would make the photo (and Moonjee) appeal to optical iluusions sites (such as http://www.moillusions.com/ ) To further publicize Moonjee, this site could be contacted to feature the photo or Moonjee.
The Moonjee blog is showing examples of Moonjee in use. The same model is being used, but to get an early 'buzz' going about moonjee they could post on Facebook and ask for volunteers' to submit their photos and these could be used to create more examples.

How about changing the way a person looks over time. As in, what will John Doe's face look like in 30 years?
People like to inform others of how they feel, but its not always convienient to change a photo. Moonjee could allow users to create images and associate them with feelings. Mad, Sad, Glad, Exicited etc. This way users could easily alter the image displaying current mood. Maybe they could update by way of text messaging?
Cool face manipulation! What if people could use Moonjee along with social network profiles. Users could choose which faces to show which contacts. Makeover for the crush in my life, and a goofy face for my friend. Whatever face I choose to wear for whoever I want to wear it.

Publicity: Create a Wikipedia entry - something along the lines of "how a brainstorming competition helped shape a company".
I was wondering why the competition ends on July 3rd when perhaps it would make more sense to end the competition on a Sunday evening, as people have more time at weekends
If you do another brainstorming competition, invite companies to suggest ideas. For example, advertising agencies could be asked to contribute ideas and these would function as a 'shop window' for the agency.
What I'd like to be able to do is post this brainstorm on my blog so that ideas could be added on my blog and would also automatically be added here. Also, if ideas added on to this brainstorm on this page would show up on my blog too.

Use it as a way to make novelty card decks for poker tournies. Make all the friends differnt royal members.
Make it as a way to label and warn roommates to not eat your food. An angry or sad face in a sticker form.
Make it the common way of rating with last nights hookup. Put in a picture the the girl/ guy and then see how much work it takes to make them rated as beautiful. "she's a seven clicker."
Use it as a rivalry device, having the opposing team's captain look hideous. Ex. send out picture of Mike hart, or wolverine mascot to badger fans.
It's said that people are attracted to someone who has looks similar to themselves. Moonjee could operate a 'similarity detector' that would find potential partners who look like yourself. Could be done by Moonjee itself, or Moonjee could do this in conjunction with a dating site. I'm sure this would get lots of free publicity.
When Moonjee is established on the net, constantly run idea competitions that all Moonjee users can contribute to. Use that as a model for other companies to use
New function/service: a "design your own wrapping paper" feature. Say , for example, you are giving someone a present, Moonjee creates wrapping paper that features the recipient's face. Different patterns would be available too
When this competition is over, tell each of the winners that you will double their prize if the winner can come up with the same amount of good ideas again
Moonjee could offer a service that prints your photo (or any photo) on an edible 'paper' for cakes etc
Moonjee could provide a service that creates a stencil to make a cake in the shape of your face
If Moonjee has a "create your own tattoo" feature, Moonjee could create a stencil (sent by post) so that the person can find out how the tattoo will look.
New function: Moonjee creates a star constellation based on your face
Advertising: interactive adverts on the underground
If a person uses Moonjee to find out how they would look with a tan (for example) Moonjee could provide a list of local tanning shops. This could work with any product - tattoo services, jewellry shops etc.
Moonjee could work with any company that provides cosmetic improvements. For example, if a person is looking at jewellry the website could provide a moonjeed photo to show how they will look wearing the jewellry. Or, moonjee site itself could provide a list of all products - including jewellry, clothes etc
a blod site will merge the deparments earlier mentioned even better.people can post their edited\tranformed photos while the best is voyed in. buy and sell of photos can be enabled. and others may love to see thier best photos on personalized merchandise like t-shirts or mosepads, cell phone screen savers or wll papers for a worthy token and one year subscription account[my space] for photo contest members about 1 million base as target for a millionaire photo feature
those who see thefuture take advantage of tomorrows opportunities.applications on the site compatible with cellphones will be IT. i saw my driover edit a photo of his son[with insert and emoticons] good enough for a bbbc photo prize.video and photo ediing software will be a feature tat can connect people to the site and enables people most likely teens and boomers interested in photos to stick with it for days offline
finance knowledge helps to manage revenues streams. apart fro ads on this site, aprogram that allows people to edit and manipulate photos- to be whoever they want to be, then send this to their receipient for a fee.people want to be seen next to oprah or breathing fire or diving down from the victoria falls even if he\she hasnt been there before. this will be more engaging and rewarding than just editing faces. a site does this for voice manipulation for just $10 a year and it is sellin
the marketers should know that photos have dominion around musi,arts and movies and thses are great channels to attract minds that love to interact
fun and getting paid for it ,is great!. monjeee should focus on hiring the best marketting staff,finance team and research and development expertise that cracks.
a search optimization engine that performs other search related functions akin to photos ia a candy stick. listing on search engines of unrelated sites will be like going against the wind that takes your ship to your destination. every young mind will be caught up with photos, manipulating them will be just aiight for an artist who wants to show his\her dexterity
offer a camera at famous people and to sell with the biddings all these camera to support an association or help a great cause
Award a prize for the wackiest idea to encourage folk to lower their inhibitions a bit and suggest 'crazy' ideas
To keep the ideas flowing every day, have a random prize winner each day
New feature: option to take an exisiting caricature (see http://madvertisingblog.files.wordpress.com/2007/08/karikaturen.jpg ) and have your face changed in exactly the same way as that caricature was of the original person's face.
New feature: 'plastic surgery gone wrong' - how you would look if you'd had too much plastic surgery of if it had gone wrong!
New feature: a 'bulk change' feature. Here's how it works: you search for an image on Google images (my choice was 'celebrity') and Moonjee changes all the images produced on the Google summary page so that they are all changed in the same way. For example, caricatures could be created of all the results.
Find a way to 'colourise' old photographs. One possible market for this is the books that feature old photographs of your town. These photographs could be coloured.
New feature (possibly link up with the IMDB?) like on 609, create galleries for movies. Each gallery contains images for all the people who appeared in the movie. Here's one possible application for this: there are many films we see throughout our life that we can vaguely recall but can't remember enough details to either find it or search with key terms. A 'random actor generator' could select faces of characters/actors and show one-per-second to see if this triggers any recognition.
(Possible highly controversial) Find out how much you can change a photo before copyright laws will not be applicable. I can think of one definite use for this in the greetings cards market - you would be able to make cards that feature a likeness of a celebrity (particularly sports stars) without having to pay out money for protected images
Make a time-capsule every day featuring faces changed with Moonjee. This way, when you look back in the future, you will be able to see online a record of how the technology to change faces using a computer (and Moonjee!) evolves over the years.
Make a time-capsule every day featuring faces changed with Moonjee. This way you will be able to see online a record of how the technology to change faces evolves over the years.
Use Moonjee to feature theme galleries. For example, one gallery could feature ALL the artwork from Google themes. Another gallery could feature all the Moonjeed photos in order of creation. Moonjee would become known online as the ultimate gallery. Invite Moonjee members to suggest themes for galleries. For example, one gallery could feature ALL the characters that have ever featured in a soap opera. Another could feature all the people who have been in space etc. Endless possibilities!
Advertising: Google has 'theme days' when the logo on the Google page changes (usually with some form of artwork) to reflect that day. Ask Google to do a Moonjee theme day - maybe the two 'O's could feature faces changed with Moonjee.
Following on from 606: start another idea contest - "How to use the internet to advertise in novel, non-obtrusive ways". This way, Moonjee would also be recognised as a company that is also a pioneer in strong advertising concepts
Advertise Moonjee with a new advertising concept as innovative as Moonjee itself. For example, using YouTube you could introduce adverts that are attached to the end of every video. Each advert would be a still image that lasts approx two tenths of a second. The still image would simply consists of a Moonjeed face together with the word 'Moonjee' and an address. I think it would be a popular idea as the advert wouldn't be obtrusive and the novelty would make the campaign memorable.
if you can, make a moonjee application for video, like if you can morph people on a video or add weird effects to a video. put it on facebook, myspace, etc. advertise it on youtube.
do an app that can transform a picture into a barbie-- you can make a "me" barbie. allow people to pick the clothes, accessories, car, etc. put it all over the internet (facebook, myspace, etc.) and try to gear it towards younger kids too. advertise on nickelodeon or make a banner add for it on barbie.com and nick.com, etc.
make a moonjee application that allows you to change someone's race or sex from uploading a picture. make it look real. then put it all over the internet-- facebook, myspace, google, livejournal, etc.
myheritage.com has all these applications like a celebrity look alike meter and stuff. remake all those using moonjee (make them easier, faster, more accurate, more trendy, etc.) and then make it into a facebook application and a myspace thing.

Allow to set different personalised themes for each user by using the photographs uploaded by the user.

Do people really pick pets that resemble their own appearance? See for yourself by taking the Monjee doubletake test. What percentage of characteristics do you really share? What would you look like if you were transformed into the breed of dog or cat that you own? How do you look in a bejewed collar... it's not a good look for your pet either.

New Feature: A "What sex are you?" or "How m/f are you?" function. Moonjee analyses your photo and tells you by what percentage you are each gender. Eg "You face is 78 percent male" etc. This idea would get forwarded by email because there is potential for laughs.

This way you can receive revenue from more students than there are in a given school.

Have an application where users can make paper dolls from their tranformed photos that can be printed off.
Have an email feature in which users can send personalized e-cards to friends/family. These virtual cards could be just of their transformed pictures or could be more like videos where users can insert people from the photo into the card (more or less a cut and paste - paste peoples heads onto predesigned bodies that sing and dance etc).
For revenue purposes, have a online store in which customers can buy products with their photos on it i.e. mugs, tshirts, keychains etc
Add alterations that let me modify a photo to represent specific states of being - such as drunk, hungover, what I look like after a fight (bruises, blackeyes, bumps/lumps), what I look like after a fight with Chuck Norris (all bloody and pulpish), sunburned (real red and with peeling skin), after a double-shift at the fast food restaurant (covered with pimples), etc.
a) Moonje add-ins/links on major Social networking/dating sites, on the 'Add/Edit your profile pic'. Also to entice the user, display the recently 'Moonjied' pics of his/her friends on their page b)Apart from allowing online ads(social/dating/career), charge the sites with 'Moonjie add-ins' a small price for every Moonjied pic. c) custom user-built applications, add time-line provision (Different Pics in tandem) to create animated pics(Gif/fla) with sound, Virtual plastic surgery, eg. Nose Job
Create a repository of users at moonjee and provide value added service to all email service providers like yahoo, hotmail .. to insert photo signatures by linking up email accounts with moonjee user profiles. This photo signature can be changed automatically sensing the mood of the mail.
On the Moonjee website do a "hall of fame" showing the best (and worst!) transformations
Create a function that can turn a photo into a portrait that looks like it has been painted (probably by oil paints, but there would be other options). Offer a service that can post them the picture, and start a service where they can choose a frame.
Create a feature that shows how you would look if you're really sick. Then when you call in sick to work you can email your boss the photo!
Offer a service that can print any Moonjee photo onto an object. For example, keyrings, plates etc
Following on from 294, a service could be offered that can show how you would look with any image on your body. For example, someone may like to know how they would look with a tattoo of the face of their girlfriend
People who want a tattoo would probably look at tattoos online. Offer a service that can take a photo someone has of a tattoo and create a Moonjee photo showing how they would look with that tattoo
New feature: how you would look if you were dracula, a werewolf etc
facial expressions communicate a lot. create advanced application to capture user face expressions by asking them to laugh, smile other scenarios and let them to evaluate it and provide recommendations as well for each scenario. This can be a paid service to teach graduates to face an interview and improve their body language (in this case face expression)
Have a feature that allows me to create a "how are you feeling today" type of poster. I upload me looking blah, and then it automagically generates all of the images for each of the emotions and puts them into a template for one of those posters where each emotion is listed along with the photo of me expressing that emotion. Maybe it could then be sent to a printer and the final poster mailed to me. Then I hang it up in my office to help my clueless co-workers figure out when not to talk to me.
marketing: create a place in secondlife.com to promote moonjee.com
To get media attention at launch: make crop-circle type advertisements where you put moonjee.com in a farmers field near major airports.
Target users of forums that want to create avatars that merge their face with that of a virtual persona. For example, there are many many forums for players of World of Warcraft. Set up a special "avatar generator" where the user uploads a photo of themself and the character they use in the game, and have it spit out a small avatar image that they can then use in forums outside the game. This could be used for many different games and forum communities.
Market Target should be schools and colleges. Collaborate with schools, high schools to paint moonjee.com banners on their buses.
To get media attention at launch: work out deals with the major tabloids to use the "create a baby" feature to show what the current celebrity pregnancies will turn out to be. Then the headline can be "Shocking software reveals deformity in Brad and Angelina's new fetus!"
Marketing idea: Create presidential candidates mask using application in various moods and distribute among supporters, the mask contains tag at bottom moonjee.com
To get media attention at launch: put moonjee.com on small slips of paper and dump a million of them over a city, much like the American military does to try and get enemy soldiers to surrender.
virtual parlour service: User sits in front of a web cam and send streaming images to this automated web application. The web application measures, calculates different facial aspects and recommends facials and other treatments which can be done. Some inputs may be textual as well.
To get media attention at launch: etch moonjee.com into bricks and throw them through the windows of all of the McDonalds in a small town. That would get national attention and it would only cost a few grand in repairs and legal fees (unless they got really really mad at you...). It would have to be a small town though, because bricks through windows isnt newsworthy in a big city. Attacking a corporate icon insures media coverage.
Piercing should also be added to the virtual makeover. I might want to see myself (or others) with a nose ring, eyebrow piercing, etc. This would be especially pleasing to the under 30 crowd.
Attractiveness calculator similar similar love calculator.. user uploads photo and then attractiveness is calculated 1- 10 scale --- next generation application
Create a website "the hall of mirrors" using Moonjee that creates the effects you can see at a hall of mirrors. Kids would love this.
The virtual makeover should include skin tone - tanning is popular and degree of tan can affect other elements of the makeover. Allow people to make themselves tanner.
Create a catchy name for what you are doing on this site: the idea of utilising a brainstorming site for creating marketing ideas. Something like "spark marketing"
"Judges will select the top 5 rated brainstormers who have provided the highest number of good ideas in response". There should also be a single prize for the single most outstanding idea.
Offer incentives to people to talk about Moonjee (and this brainstorm challenge) elsewhere. For example, ask people to mention on Moonjee and this challenge on MySpace. Maybe prizes could be awarded randomly, or prizes could be awarded to the people who create the most business or create the most hits.
Around election time, promote the "predict personality" feature as a way to evaluate politicians. That should get buzz in the political blogs.
Try to get "create ideas for Moonjee" accepted as a standard challenge in brainstorms and creativity challenges, such as the "name as many ideas as you can for a paperclip" challenge
The idea of starting a brainstorm competition to find marketing ideas is a novel one, so ask publishers and authors to mention this precedent in future books
Start an "Ideas for Moonjee" page on MySpace and Facebook
To attract more ideas to this brainstorm, state that you plan to randomly choose one of the contributors at the end of the brainstorm and award them a prize regardless of their idea's merit
There are many BrainReactions challenges in many different languages. Rewrite this brainstorm in as many different languages as possible so as to attract ideas from all across the globe.
Add plugin to dating websites to match my "attractiveness rating" with potential dating partners with a similar rating.
Start a brainstorm on here to find a better name, tagline or logo
Publicize Moonjee with this interesting psychological experiment: find an attractive person, and use Moonjee to "uglify" that person. Then, place two lonely hearts adverts in different places with exactly the same information but one with the attractive photo, one with the ugly one. See how the response rate varies. Get the results published in the media for free publicity.
If I can make a face look like it has a certain emotion, can I make it look like it has just spoken a certain letter of the alphabet (shape of the mouth and whatnot)? If so, add a feature to allow me to do that with the whole alphabet, and add a feature that allows me to string photos together to make them play like a flipbook (i.e. a movie). Then I can make it look like Bill Clinton said, "yes, I did smoke those cigars after Monica was done with them, but I didn't inhale!"
New feature: the chance to have your face as one of the 'characters' in a famous work of art. For example, you could become the laughing cavalier, or be one of the men struggling with the cart in the Haywain. This idea could be utilised by online greetings cards websites
When a celebrity has does something newsworthy they will feature in the media. Use Moonjee to create a facial expression of that person that mirros their situation. For example, if their partner has left them create an image of them looking extremely sad. Submit the photo to the media to be used in the article/news report etc.
Allow me to make myself look more like specific celebrities.
To promote the app, have a website that is centered around Chuck Norris. He has much fan appeal in the online community (even if only tongue in cheek - http://www.chucknorrisfacts.com/), which would agree that Chuck Norris will never die, but much like the Dalai Lama, will reincarnate. All we have to do is find the correct vessel. The contest would invite people to upload photos and "make a baby" to find the best replacement for the current body Chuck is in, and of course people could vote.
have photo kiosks set up at malls or other places of interests where people can take the photo, then use the features to change it and print it out on the spot. This would get the name out in the public and generate revenue.
Add a feature that allows the person in the photo to be placed into different settings i.e. at the beach, in a different country etc.
Function that turns your photos into portraits like this: http://www.ueltzhoeffer.com/LOGO%20PICTURE/Tom-Cruise.jpg
The "jing" video that describes the technology is setup for a screen width of 1280, which is larger than what is currently the predominant screen width of internet users (1024). This video should be smaller so that potential users can see it more clearly. More importantly, if the software is set up for this width, I (being one of the 1024 crowd) would have difficulty with it. Check http://www.w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_display.asp for the latest browser statistics.
Creating challenges involving Moonjee that can be used on reality TV shows such as The Apprentice
Partner with additional photo sights, such as snapfish, to allow users to print out images once created on Moonje. The company could contract with the other sight in order to gain profits from these photos, as well.
Another way to get unlimited ideas for new features: just type in the name of a celebrity into Google with the word "funny"
Following on from dadeal's idea 241, there could be a mischevious spin-off site that aims to only make negative changes to photos - caricatures, warts etc. This spin-off site could be given a name like "Face Crook"
How about adding backgrounds? Seems like the software can identify a head, can it rotoscope it and remove whatever background is there? If it can, then there could be a couple dozen available backgrounds to put in. For example, I would like to take my photo of Taliban George and put him in a whore house.
I would like to be able to add "props" to the photo. For example, if I want to make President Bush look like a Taliban, then I would like to be able to add a turban and an AK-47 to the photo. There could be a stock of usable objects that one could insert into the photo, move around, rotate, etc.
It would be nice to be able to automagically send the photo to an online photo album, such as flikr. Perhaps I could provide the moonjee app with my username at flikr or whatnot, and then it could add it automagically.
Am I able to add different styles of facial hair (beards, mustaches, etc). If that isnt in the current version, it should be.
Need to add a caricature for "devil". I need to be able to add horns to people's heads. Thats one of the first things kids do to any photo when they start scribbling on it.
If there were animal faces, we could combine them to come up with potential new pets that the genetic engineers could make for us in the future. You could mix a monkey and a pig (to make something like that adorable thing in the Spiderwick Chronicles that was obsessed with eating birds) and submit the potentially-patentable creature idea to a lab that could then put it on backorder and make them when the technology arrives.
Future idea: add animal faces. Then I can see what my baby would look like if I made it with a kangaroo (which would probably be pretty awesome because my baby would rock the volleyball - spikemaster!).
Hook up with high school yearbooks. Charge the yearbook creator a fee that will allow them to upload all of the photos from the particular yearbook to a certain login-only version of moonjee that purchasers of the yearbook can then access. Then the high school kids can do whatever they want with the photos of their friends and enemies (make the mean girl ugly, make a baby with the hot one, make the bully into an ogre, etc.).
Create a site for teenage girls called "I want to have your baby!!". You have pre-selected and uploaded photos of all of the popular celebrity boys that the girls drool over (members of boy bands, young actors, etc.) and allow them to create their merged baby photo and see how they would look. You might also add a button that (allegedly) sends the photo of the baby to the relevant boy heartthrob.
Add "transform me into a toon" function where you can be transformed into a character from the popular cartoons, such as spongebob. I always wanted to know what I would look like as a Thundercat...
Team up with Disney and have a "become a princess" section on one of their websites. Here little girls (every american girl between 2-4 wants to be a princess) could have their photo made into one of the disney princesses.
It could be promoted by creating stripped down versions that are embedded in other websites. For example, a version that just transforms the photo into the incredible hulk could have been added to the website for the new hulk film, and then an ad for the full version inserted. Similarly, a pirate making version would go in Pirates of the Carribbean. These films bring lots of visitors to their sites.
Try to reach the dentistry market: I can see how I would look with different teeth - different shades of whiteness etc. Offer a feature where you can email your friends with different photos with different shades of whiteness and ask them which one is best. Offer this feature for other types of cosmetic improvement.
Create quizzes featuring composite faces of celebrities and challenge people to name all the celebrities who make the face. Offer people a chance to do this with their own photos
Regarding harvesting ideas from this brainstorm: email all participants in this brainstorm (and maybe all brainreactions' members?) in the future - in a week, in a month etc - and ask them if they have any further ideas or have had any moments of inspiration. Also ask them - if they have time - to read through all the ideas again to see if inspiration occurs
create templates that you can place people in... like a wanted poster... or a ms. universe.. people can add themselves or friends to it. templates are available at minimum costs..
the biggest thing about the internet for the average user is the social factor, meeting new people. people are allowed to upload pics of themselves and add a little profile info and they will be randomly combined with someone else. they can then read a limited profile of this person and be able to meet their new friend... making faces... making friends..
WE ARE ONE.. will be the theme, showing how everyone across the globe, in various places, countries, ethnicities are alike. launched as a net video (youtube etc). invite people across the globe to upload their own pic and email the link to a friend who will then upload theirs and the video would complile each face one after eachother morphing into one another. everyone would watch to see themselves and who the link with.
Start a new blog "The life of Moonjee". Document the life of Moonjee and how it evolves and utilises the ideas featured in the brainstorm. This way, people will see their ideas coming to fruition
Do another Brainstorm competition where people are invited to create subjects for new Moonjee brainstorms. Eg: how can we utilise email, how can we attract bloggers, how can we use YouTube etc
On the website post a list of options so that visitors can quickly do what they want to do. For example: "I want to make silly pics of my friends" or "I want to know what I'd look like with hairstyle X" etc
a) How can Moonjee gain thousands of users by marketing online?: create an 'instant blog post' so that people can create blog posts about Moonjee without too much effort
The Moonjee link above gives no information or background about Moonjee at all. I think some information should be given. Why should I sign up for an invitation? Why isn't information given that could start the buzz and get people telling their friends about Moonjee?
New feature: "my perfect mate": a person can choose several famous people they're attracted to and Moonjee makes a composite photo
Marketing: do personality profiles for a number of celebrities and sell these to newspapers. Do a 'newslink' feature on the website: when a celebrity is in the news (for whatever reason) show how their personality profile could have predicted trouble for them.
Improving an existing feature: a face will be perceived as being more attractive if the pupils are dilated
New feature: your face on a movie poster, or famous image from a movie (both as one of the characters)
New feature: it's a known fact that no face is symmetrical. Offer a feature where you could see how your face would look if the right side mirrored the left side, and vice versa
Team up with Facebook and MySpace and introduce a feature to those sites where your portrait changes each day, where each day your face is changed some way by Moonjee.
New feature: Option to morph your face gradually so that it becomes that of a celebrity. So, for example, you could morph your face so that you look 5 percent more like George Clooney etc.
New featuring and marketing concept: find a way to measure and rate the likeness accuracy of professional lookalikes. The ratings could feature on lookalike agencies' websites
New feature: offer a facility where people can make 'morph compilations' like on Women in Art (See idea 200 for link) so they can feature them on YouTube
Send 'replies' to popular YouTube videos such as "Women in Art" : http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=nUDIoN-_Hxs
Feature: how your child will look as an adult
New feature: how you look with a hangover
New feature: option to see how jewelry will look on you. Both standard - ear rings, necklaces, and unusual - nose piercings, lip piercings etc.
New feature: option to choose words for tattoos. For example "Crazy Guy" etc
New feature: this is a serious application that would receive lots of free publicity. The media often shows photographs of missing people showing how they would look now. Moonjet could offer this function. Of course, people would also want to use this feature for fun, to see how they will look when they're older!
New feature: if you can morph your face to 'alien face' there should also be a feature to change the colour too (usually grey or green!)
New feature: many people now have hair of two different colours. Moonjee could have option to apply different colourings to different hairstyles
I like products and services that have an 'instant gratification' feature. The Moonjee site could have a banner clearly marked 'instant gratification' where you send an email with a photo and receive an email in return that treats the photo in a hundred different ways.
Do caricatures of all the staff at YouTube using Moonjee and create a YouTube video. It could end up on the front page, and you can also do one featuring celebrities
I think the caricatures need to be better. I believe there is a big market out there for any person/company who finds a new way to create funny caricatures. Here's a way to create funny caricatures (we did this at work): simply get a group of friends or workmates to draw portraits of each other. I guarantee you some of them will be hilarious. Ask yourself "Why does this caricature work, and how can get Moonjee to create caricatures like this?".A caricature must be both funny and recognisable
New feature: In addition to being able to select hairstyles by images of different styles, you should also be able to select the hairstyle by stating the name of a celebrity who has that style
Following on from idea 207, YouTube compilations could be made featuring many before/after shots
The video above should have had a compilation of many "before/after" photos to illustrate the features comprehensively
The video above should have been available in YouTube. I think more people would see it that way, and most folk are more familiar with YouTube and how to use its features
I think that it would be a good idea for Moonjee to show people using the application; i.e. one person morphing his/her own face and then sending it as a picture text to a friend, laughing and trying it him/herself, sending to another friend, etc. Since the idea is slightly ridiculous, I think it would be in the creator's best interest to play on that (i.e., have it set to "Chariots of Fire," morphing in slow motion); show visually the morph representing an altogether different life.
Increase awareness of Monjee by giving a free screen protector that includes random tools of Monjee applied to the user photos available in the user PC. The screen protector must include advertisement for Monjee.
To get (potentially unlimited) ideas for new features, simple type a famous person's name into Google and look through all the images on Google Images. (For example, searching "George Clooney" gave this result among the images: http://img.timeinc.net/time/time100/2007/images/george_clooney.jpg which made me think of idea 202 - Andy Warhol style portraits.)
New feature: your portrait can be made into an Andy Warhol style painting. (See http://www.popartuk.com/g/l/lgpo7028+che-guevara-1962-andy-warhol-poster.jpg as an example)
New feature: A mock-up newspaper headline could be created with your photo on the front page. Fun headlines such as "Angelina Jolie now dating (person's name)"
As Google characterizes its logo depending of the day of the year, Monjee might reach a deal in order to personalize the logo of relevant webpages according to the tastes of the user, that migh include some random tools applied to some limited set of pictures stored by the user in its own computer memory, while Monjee appears highlighted on a corner of the Main logo. Awareness of Monjee would be increased and also that main webpage might receive more visits increasing profits of Monjee.
This feature would be popular (I know the people I work with would love it): People can email pics to the Moonjee site and immediately an email is sent back with random changes made to the picture (do both silly and sensible changes). People will then - especially if the changes are funny - forward the emails to their friends and, of course, the email will have the Moonjee name and links prominently displayed
Facility to superimpose your head onto someone else's body and vice versa
Make deal with cosmetic companies in order to include all their products available to potential customers and simulate their makeover. Cosmetic companies should pay to Monjee on a click basis.
Go to companies' websites and get photos of the people who work there. Use Moonjie to change the photos (both good and bad changes) and email the changes to the people that work there, with the email clearly show Moonjie name and providing a link.
To reduce inhibitions in future brainstorms award prizes for most humorous suggestions
Add odd colours as another tool of the morphing process.
Offer BrainReactions users shares in Moonjee for X number of actionable ideas.
Everyone knows about intelligence quotients. Devise a 'look quotient' and offer an online service that calculates your LQ (by Moonjie). Start dating agencies and societies for people with similar LQs
Offer your services to Political Magazines, either online or printed, in order to use Monjee capabilities at full extent in characterizing politicians in funny ways.
The cash prizes on here should not be a fixed amount. Some (or all) could entitle the winner to receive a percentage of Moonjie's profits after the first year
Ask professional carciature artists how the caricatures could be improved
Offer a "caricature service" to newspapers
Reach deal with big companies in order to personalize design of either bottles, labels or other wrappings in order to expand their business. For example: A customer might order a pack of Coca-Cola bottles with a birthday greeting and the image of a preson, both in the label. All that as a service provided by Coca-Cola throuh Monjee to the customer.
Dont just allow the judges to choose the best ideas: award prizes to the top five ideas by "good idea" votes on here, and also perhaps allow people to vote for their favourite idea by email.
Have a monthly brainstorm about Moonjee with cash prizes. Have a different topic each month relating to Moonjee and its development. This will increase general awareness of Moonjee and the challenge will become standard.
Create a separate unique "Moonjee area" on BrainReactions site where many brainstorms on just Moonjee - on creative direction, problems that need solving etc - are posted. Try to make BrainReaction users feel a degree of 'ownership' of Moonjee.
Add this tool to facebook but with limited capabilities, in order to show flexibility and train potential users on the right way of applying it.
This brainstorm should have displayed principles of braintorming that will help people new to brainstorming. Such as "freewheel- don't judge too much", "Don't worry if an idea sounds silly", "Don't worry about spelling and grammar", "Use cross-pollination -- allow other ideas to trigger new ideas", "Quantity is more imporatant than quality".
feature 2 : allow the user to mix several identity pictures all together. It could be funny to have one identity picture of a group of people, who is making a party for example;)
Encourage bloggers to link this brainstorm. Offer prizes to the blogs that produce the most traffic to this brainstorm. Also, award random prizes to ANY blog that links to this challenge so that every blog has a chance of winning
Add thw chance of including real looking big holes crossing parts of the face or body of the subject.
What's a Moonjee?... Make Moonjee a playful, mischevious little alien character who came to earth and spends his time changing people's faces - either for the good or for the worse! This will attract your future customers - the young folk. Older folk will ask the same question "What's a Moonjee?" and the front page of Moonjee website will answer that question.
Allow replacement/morphing of vegetables into parts of the body or face of the subject.
Include odd changes on parts of the original picture, for example replace hands by feet (either from the original subject or from another animal or person).
include capabilities to add extra items to the original pictures, for example an extra set of arms or a second nose parallel to the real one, after adding a third eye and slightly changing the upper lip.
Allow shrinking/expansion of some parts of the original picture. For example: take the nose and enlarge the tip of it.
Allow partial morphing, i.e.: take the original subject and add lips from other person, while the change holds continuity on the stitched border.
c) Which new interesting features can Moonjee create for the next generation of its website?
Male - female morph and vice versa. Real pic to cartoon creation.
creating Real time facial video with changing emotion.
b) What are some cool or creative ways for Moonjee to earn revenues?, and
order printed photographs from your site. Order pics printed on T-shirts. The ubiquitious advertisements.
a) How can Moonjee gain thousands of users by marketing online?
Collaborate with social networking sites like facebook, orkut giving instant access to millions of users to use your application. In orkut they introduced a new add applicatin plugin, which can be easily created. one Basic utility is that users having pictures in their profile can adjust their pics upon there moods.

Make a Motivational Poster for Moonjee that would be funny but still not telling people what it is exactly but once it is clicked on to enlarge full 1280x1024 it sends them straight to the link.
Idea: try to focus more on Apple/Mac users, they have basic but great photo software (iPhoto) and for example Facebook already made it much easier to upload photos from a mac ... just an idea...
scandal pictures of some celebrity will do actually
moonjee can become a social networking site like facebook and orkut...It will be better as it has more fun with photots...and then have some scandalous pictures and come out in the media and become famous.
get the app into hair and beauty shops for instore previews - mobile app would be nice
Make a mobile Java app ofr any phone.
Brilliant idea #1: Offer to pay what it is actually worth for a brilliant marketing campaign concept.
feature: to give a 21th 's tempo at the software. The time needed to see the result is not attractive and will always minimize the result. Work on the transition. For example find the way to show frame by frame the "transformation-morphe" of the face, instead of this boring green frame with a turning clock. If people can see the transformation of their face frame by frame or even less, if people see a kind of process, I think they can wait a bit longer but enjoy better the result. GwendalineB.
get a bear and make him ride a unicorn. you have to make him. he won't go by himself.
an anti marketing camping where you do not advertise at all but let all mass media out lets know you will not be advertising or interviewing with them that will interest the media as they always want to know about what they cant have
Sponsor mall kiosks with the Moonjee technology and a digital photo printer
Build out widget/embed features for all popular social sites (Facebook, Myspace, etc.) and blog platforms (Wordpress, blogger, etc.)
Make a flickr plugin or an easy way to apply Moonjee mods to flickr photos. Maybe allow Moonjee users to subscribe to their flickr feed while logged into Moonjee.
Make a fun alteration to a photo of Steve Jobs or another tech icon and post it on Digg.com and Reddit.com.
Make an iPhone app that will allow Moonjee to modify pictures right on the iPhone.
Have a contest for the best alteration to a photo of the two presidential candidates. Maybe give it a specific purpose, like "best political cartoon".
Make a feature for school kids where they can graffiti a picture of their teacher.
Advertise a "logo modifier" feature. Many designers want to take an existing logo design and slightly tweak it for their own use.
Have a "moonjee" mask competition around Halloween. Let users make scary masks out of regular photos.
Organize a contest via facebook app where people can modify their own photos in different categories (faces, bodies, landscapes, artistic, etc). Best makeover wins. This is a good way for people to learn how to improve their own photos by using mooonjee and get the best use of the app. In order to make some revenues, people will need to understand what are the benefits of paying $$$$
Take pictures of the hosts of diggnation and modify them in a funny way, then send the photo to email@example.com and hope to be mentioned on the show. This is a free alternative to paying for ads on their video podcast.
Be featured in a "you suck at photoshop" youtube video. These are alredy very popular. This might get all the photoshop junkies to take a look at your image manipulation features.
Make a game where you take pictures of famous people and make them look older or younger, then the players have to guess which celebrity it is.
market moonjee to companies that sell pictures for advertisements-- more bang for their buck by buying one persons face and molding it into several others (ie. with the Clinton campaign when they used that little girl's picture that was originally used in an ad ten years ago)
allow people to send in their photos to professional stylists (image or hair/makeup, etc.) and have them alter the face and send it back with visual advice. could be especially great for WEDDINGS.
i heard that poloroid was phasing out the old-school poloroid cameras-- bring them back and have moonjee included on them!
bring back those sticker cameras that people used to have where you could take a picture and it would turn into a sticker. but this time-- let people moonjee the photo before it becomes a sticker!
moonjee definitely needs to be accessible by phone or have phones add the application so that people can take a picture on their cell, moonjee it and send it to a friend.
or people could upload moonjee cycles for morphing and there could be a page where people could "select a look" and take a pre-selected chain of morphing that someone else has created.
what if people could connect certain morphing techniques to songs? people could select a song online and see how moonjee would change the face according to it. for example, a face altered to the tune of coldplay might have more subtle changes than those made to linkin park.
i think you have to build "moonjee" into daily conversation like "googling". start small with facebook apps and eventually have people saying "how are you going to Moonjee your way out of that?"-- something about people trying to avoid a situation by disguising themselves
advertise online with ads that say "surgery is forever-- moonjee is not" or something that let's people know that moonjee is a nice way to play with how you look without the danger/expense of surgery
use it as a tool through a popular magazine's website to let women (or men) see how they would look with plastic surgery
team up with facebook to make an alter-ego website for fb where people use profile pictures that are moonjee created and they can post pictures revamped by moonjee
allow users to make alter-ego albums on facebook by using moonjee on facebook to alter faces
try advertising with websites like perezhilton.com or women's fashion magazine websites to let people see if they like their new look or how well it matches up with a celebrity look.
have moonjee be used on some spy movie or tv show as their tool of choice
start a campaign asking people "who is your moonjee?"
when i think of moonjee i think of aliens because of the "moon" part of the name- have the advertising reflect that with an alien and a kid meeting and the alien is actually a derived version of the kid's face.
allow couples to use moonjee to blend their faces to see what their possible baby could look like.
allow people to morph their faces with celebrity faces like conan does to see what people's babies would look like
for advertising, make some sort of funny ad about a kid trying to make his face on moonjee look different for a fake ID.
build face communities where people can affiliate themselves with other similiarly styled faces
people have different interests so they should be able to express them with the alter-egos-- building on the previous idea mentioned i would say that alter-egos should be able to have pets, clothing, different cities to live in.
build this into some sort of "sims" type of community where people can have their "family" of derived faces interact with others-- allow people the ability to make alter-egos for themselves
have some sort of contest/ad with a side by side asking people to ID which face is the real face and which was derived.
team up for advertising with match.com and for an ad about people altering their pictures to attract others.
Allow other web sites to license Moonjee features for a fee to allow photo changing on their own site.
Users can wear a celeb or trendy hairstyle and email their pic to their stylist or barber.
Partner with hair salon and franchises like Cost Cutters, etc. to get customers to create their hairstyle on Moonjee.
get some children (grade school and high school age) to contribute their ideas to this brainstorm. This is an audience you will want to market to!
create funny/weird faces from photos of popular celebrities and send them to The Daily Show (Jon Stewart) and The Late Show (David Letterman)
create funny/weird faces from photos of popular celebrities and post a video of them on YouTube
partner with Muvee, and bundle Moonjee with Muvee to create a suite of products for creating fun photos AND videos.
invest all your start up funds in apple
The internet is an easy way to advertise through banners, pop ups, and facebook apps. A more interactive approach would be to develop a partnership with photbucket and myspace. Myspace uses photobucket to upload photos. Using the moonjee application could be a fun and exctiing way to alter photos. However, sometimes it may be difficult to detect an altered photo. A solution to this would be to have a watermark of the moonjee icon in the corner of the photo, which would also help with advertising
Here it is: Moonjee takes an actual photograph that is uploaded by the user and transforms it into a cute vector "cartoon" image that people can use as their profile picture or "avatar".
New feature: Analyze a business headshot. Tell me what the mood "says". How attractive is it? What specific transformations should I apply to improve appearance (and why)?
New feature: Allow side-by-side comparison (gallery) of changing face. For example, what do I look like angry vs. sad vs. elated.
Create (32 x 32, etc.) character icons of a face to use on one's own computer, iPhone, etc.
Dating website: Find images of people that are best "matches", rather than simply using textual descriptions of appearance.
Social Website: You specify your current mood. Your intimate circle of friends could then "check up on you" to see how you're feeling.
Social Websites: Members upload standard photo. When responding to post, they could also indicate their response mood, and their photo next to their post would morph to show their anger, irony, humor, etc.
Opticians: Suggest best style for face type
Opticians: Show how you look with different eyeglass styles/colors
New feature: compare baby photos with adult images. How much could you predict from early photos?
New feature: What celebrity do I look most like? Compare uploaded photo to your gallery of celebrities.
New feature: find my virtual (online) twin. Upload photo, then your service will do a websearch looking for someone that looks like me.
New feature: create own mug shot (also allow picking of eye/nose/mouth/face type)
New feature: Add/remove facial hair (for men)
Weight Watchers (or other diet/fitness organization): Show what the new you can look like after you lose weight.
Twitter campaign: What should my new hair/lip/eye line look like (before heading to the salon or club)?
New feature: add artist-style drawing caricatures (not simply based on cartoonish effects)
Run photo contests. Include the names of the people that appear in the photo, engage these people by sending them automatic e-mails about the publication of their photos. Contests can be run on differente categories, users can vote on photos, and awards shall be given at the end. Tyhe outcome: lots of interested people clicking into Moonjee and feeling identified with the space; exponential awareness in the market.
For business websites: Do a study for how different photo expressions change ROI of clickthru
Next gen: Show how much a person looks like their pet
Team up with dating websites to give members a chance to improve their photos
For getting some cool application, you have too send an invitation too a friend
Marketing: Setup a camera and Moonjee in public places, for people to go up take their picture and make it instantly public on a digital picture wall. This could be done for fun, or in conjunction with polls. Also you could use peoples face to show that they care about a cause or campaign like "stop violence" Like this: http://www.nejtilvold.nu/gallery/
Marketin idea: Again, with the full body feature (previous idea), a system like this could be installed in the changingrooms of stores, in order for you to not only virtually try out the stores different outfits, but also alter your body and face to your personal goals- to see if the dress will fit well with your new body.
Next gen. feature: make a "Time line aging" feature, where you can upload a picture of yourself and provide age and habbits like smoking and drinking, sun exposure... in order to get a timeline of pictures of your future self in a 5 year interval - that way, you can see the outcome of your lifestyle, depending of your habbits etc. Changing the habbits would instantly alter the timeline.
Next gen. feature: Like the make your baby, feature, but where you design your baby, and from there it suggest how your girlfriend/boyfriend should look like in order to get that result.
Next gen. feature, Revenue and marketing idea: Make different accessories kits from sponsors like jewlery, hats, sunglases, glases etc.
Next gen. feature: A full body feature, where the picture not only works on the face.
Don't price the funny pictures, but price the pictures that clean up your face etc. In that way, the system can become a tool for websites, and fun for users...
Incorporate this in the various webservices where identity/profile picture are part of your public profile.
As allways, make a facebook app.
Put the system to work at a makeup store/stand
Put the system to work in a hairdresser salon
moonjee can team up with charity organisations that alleviate poverty in Africa, by creating ads on moonjee's site and the charities site. ads likes: displaying photos of poverty stricken children and their edited photos which makes them look well fed. and adding the phrase, "help these children look this good". sponsored by moonjee." this will appeal to the evangelicals and charity minded people their by increasing the reach of moonjee.
search engine optimization with phrases like:"looking Good, make-over, photo editing, etc.
Moonjee can have marketing ads like: puting a monkey beside a madeover monkey(that looks really good)with the commment "even monkeys look good with moonjee".
Moonjee should start giving out internship opportunities for IT undergrates, who might have plenty of ideas in their hand. Although, they might not be the best in the technical aspects as some experts in Moonjee, but the availability of fresh blood is a great factor for the creation of better features...
Moonjee should actively advertise to the many cosmetic surgery clinics and organisations. This is because, cosmetic patients don't usually get to see the aftermath of their facial surgery. With Moonjee available, surgeons are able to modify patients images according to how they'll look after the cosmetic and show them to the patients prior to the actual surgery. As least, it leaves the patient with full of confidence to continue with the facial surgery.
The emergence of the internet has truly redefined the way humans shop. With a click of a mouse, internet users can buy almost anything online. However, where shopping for clothes is concerned, buyers don't have the luxury of seeing how good they look in the clothes they are about to buy. Moonjee should extend its images to full-bodied images so that users can place clothes over their body to see how they look in the clothes they are about to buy.
Moonjee should also develop more features and package it to important application for worldwide government agencies, police, immigration and investigative arms such as FBI and CIA as an important tool for identifying the most wanted man. For example, to the various features it has, Moonjee is able to churn out thousands of images of how bin Laden looks like. I believe that this will surely benefit the world and ensures the world safety and peace.
The most fundamental problem that is the faced by all new applications is letting internet users know of its existence. Perhaps, Moonjee should ride on the Facebook waves as Facebook has 80 million active users. Creating a web-app specially for facebook allows users to edit their own photos and put them up as their profile pictures. Their friends will notice and subsequently add Moonjee as their own application. Its the matter of time before Moonjee gets noticed by 80 million internet users...
