Over Labor Day weekend, I played around with BeFunky, which is an online photo effects application. BeFunky simplifies photo editing and effects for dads and moms. The BeFunky photo app features over 190 special effects. Dads and moms can also use BeFunky to add elements to their photos (such as speech bubbles, cool effects, and frames). BeFunky also includes tools for adjusting colors and brightness (auto or manual adjustments). BeFunky is easy to use (just one click for each filter — unless you want to change the default filter settings). According to their website, BeFunky (Facebook | Twitter) offers unlimited photo storage. BeFunky is free, but if you want to be able to save in high resolution, you need to upgrade to Premium (resolution up to 2500 x 2500 px) or Professional (up to 4000 x 4000 px resolution). Premium membership is $25 per year (or $5/month) and Professional membership is $100 per year (or $15/month).
I’ve only used BeFunky for a few hours, but I am impressed. Their web service is much easier to use than Photoshop and their Premium and Professional memberships are certainly affordable. As I mentioned before, BeFunky has over 190 photo filters. I’ve highlighted some of the special effects below. The first photo is the original photo I uploaded to BeFunky.
