    $\begingroup$ Is it too snarky to say "a mouse"? $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 16, 2015 at 10:04
  • $\begingroup$ This makes me think of computer mouse resolution (AKA DPI). $\endgroup$

My answer is


or simply



pixelating the face is done to make the identity of the person (or animal) anonymous.


My answer is

Mouse-aic (as in Mosaic, which refers to the pixelated blur, described on this page)

  • $\begingroup$ In this case, however, the whole mouse would have to be pixelated. $\endgroup$

I thought of:

Mouse-touch (moustache), since the original mouse picture has been touched (and the mouse in the picture obviously has one).
