How to Put Your Picture on Forbes or Vogue Magazine Cover?
The principles are the same for all online photo editors. You choose a photo, adjust the image, select the mag frame you like and click the Create button. Ready, set, go! Let’s compare the best template editors that you can find online.
There’s a special tab with Magazine cover effects on the site. When you open it you got amazed! A lot of journal templates to any taste: Forbes, Vogue, Entertainment Weekly, Financial Times, People, ¡Hola!, etc. Intuitive interface helps you upload your image and guides you through the process of placing your face on the GQ page. Everything is clear and fast. By the way, PhotoFunny has dozens of cool features and it can place you not only on Vogue background photoshoot, but put you in anime with your favorite cartoon character – see in our tutorial.
Disadvantages: Any time I was going to automatically adjust the uploaded photo Photofunny article generator got frozen. No pages from auto filters and enhancements for my selfies so far. Without this option, all periodical background templates work just fine.
Photomica is one of the best online fake magazine cover makers! This photo app has special Magazines tab. There you find dozens of popular templates such as Vogue, Times, Style, Elle, Marie Claire, Glamour, Forbes, GQ, Sports Illustrated, etc. Most of mockups look authentic and contain titles, additional images, etc. So, they look real. There is an opportunity to zoom in and crop your face picture to fit the cover.
Disadvantages: When you zoom in a picture, the image quality gets worse. I was looking for a big Create Image button or something like that for 3 minutes. Then it occurred to me to click on the microscopic Crop Image link in the bottom right corner to get my print!

4. Funny Pho.to
Funny Pho.to is a nicely designed online service with a lot of fake magazine cover photo effects. The main character who demonstrates effects is a cute woman. She looks gorgeous! There is not such a category as Magazine Covers to its fullest extent but you can click the Fun effects tab instead. The ideas for design templates are wonderful and detailed. Some themes look very stylish. The service also adjusts colors so your images do not look alien in the picture! The process is flawless and very fast. Besides, Funny Pho.to has tons of other awesome photo collage templates, including photo collages for top events as Christmas or St. Valentine.
Disadvantages: Not many ready layouts for men. Which is very disappointing since the effects realization deserves the highest mark!
The last, but not the least observation. 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 mag title.
P.S. I’m going to get a mag with my mom’s face on the cover for her birthday.
