Make a Celebrity Odd

At the new, you can, well, make a celebrity odd. Please give it a try and comment with your feedback, it’s just a little experiment I did.

On a side-note, this runs completely on the client-side, as JavaScript. The image search engine used in the background of this is the Bing (JSON) API, as it offers a neat way to restrict to just faces without showing shoulders, whereas Google’s REST API only lets you restrict to faces. (When not enough Bing results are found, the Google API is used, though.) For the image effect, there’s no Flash, but Canvas for some browsers, and a flip filter for Internet Explorer.
