Review Of BeFunky - What Is It
Do you need a new profile image for your social accounts. It should be a head shot image of your face but this time why not do something different, such as make it look like a cartoon or avatar. Of course, you can do this in any graphic program, such as Adobe Illustrator or the Affinity Suite apps. But, I searched the web for some free online apps that could do the trick. That's how I found BeFunky by Tekin Tatar.

This website is much like It has three main sections, which are a Photo Editor, Collage Maker and Graphic Designer. It's an online app for both desktop and mobile. Of course, the feature that I was interested in was the photo editor and the Cartoonizer feature.

You can upload an image or use the free images supplied with the app. The Image Manager will keep track of your images as you move between the editor, collage maker and graphic designer. You can import an image from your computer, your BeFunky account, Google Drive, Google Photos, Facebook, Dropbox, webcam or one of your saved projects. You can save your designs to your computer, BeFunky account, Google Drive, Google Photos, Facebook, Dropbox, Pinterest, Twitter or as a project.

The interface is set up much like Canva as well. With the Collage Maker, you can use your own images as well as the apps searchable library of backgrounds, overlays, shapes, graphics, patterns and stock images. You have your choice of fonts and text styles. The collage is grid-based and there are several grid layouts from which to choose. Lastly, you can start from a blank canvas.

In the Graphic Designer workspace, you can start by choosing a predesigned project template or a blank canvas. As with Canva, there are templates for the popular social sites, such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Etsy and Twitter. Of course, there are more general templates for posters, flyers, invitations, business cards and more. You also have templates for holidays, weddings and other events.

The third workspace is the Photo Editor. There is a large list of options from which to choose. You have the usual photo effects that you can apply to your images and you can even do some touch ups. Next, we have the Artsy list, containing the Cartoonizer. But there are others filters including Pointillism, watercolor, pastel and more. As with the Graphic Designer workspace, you can add frames, borders, shapes, graphics, overlays, textures and text to your project.

With the new Visionn iOS app, you can add these effects to not only your photos but also to your videos. If you are a fan of Canva, check out BeFunky.
