We propose a system to prevent identification of an individual identity by changing the size and position of one's facial regions. Invasion of privacy and the right of publicity have been a problem along with the popularization of social media and improvement of image resolution. The mosaic and the blur have been used to prevent identification of a person's identity. These techniques, however, make people difficult to understand the context of the video, because the facial expressions of the characters and the background in the video are masked. In this paper, we focus on naturally conversing the facial appearance in images for protecting their privacy. We examined the proper degree of facial changing parameters, and performed user studies to evaluate these parameters.
