I love watching cartoons. Cartoons are a fragile bridge between childhood and adulthood. Undoubtedly grown-ups enjoy cartoons as much as small children and teenagers. What can make your son or daughter more happy than a photo with one of so adorable cartoon characters Shrek, Garfield, Harry Porter, Rapunzel or Cars at the background? This kind of a present is precious for lifetime no matter how old you are.
So I have surfed on the Internet for hours before I could find out how to create my son’s photo with Happy Porter. There are desktop photo editing applications that allow you to edit pics. In this case you need to download the program on your computer and study its features and settings and then search for a right cartoon background where you can put your photo. But it’s more complicated task that I was ready for.
I have come across many online resources with pictures of Disney cartoon heroes for all tastes starting from Mickey Mouse, Cinderella, Pooh Bear up to Lilo and Stitch, Ratatouille, etc. However a third party photo editor is needed to combine an image with my son’s photo. Actually I was short of time and my aim was an ingenuously simple web application that could save my time and efforts. As you already know, there are many online editors that can put your face photo on a magazine cover, so I continued to look for something like that.
To my surprise I have found 5 similar web applications that have plenty of photo frames for kids. All of them have amusing patterns with popular cartoon characters.
