Photofacefun A nicely designed online service with a lot of photo effects divided by categories. The main character who demonstrates effects is a cute little girl. She looks gorgeous! There is not such a category as Magazine Covers to its fullest extent but you can click the Media tab instead.

To sum up What I noticed about most of these online services is that they don’t provide such a useful feature as preview mode. Sometimes the results were really disappointing since I couldn’t guess how the output image will look like. Two times a half of my face was vulgarly overlapped by the magazine title.
P.S. I’m going to get a magazine with my mom’s face on the cover for her birthday.
