PhotoFunia is an online photo editing tool. It lets you make amusing photo face collages and apply cool photo effects and filters. Upload a photo, select a template and the app will create magic for you.
Unlike other web applications of this kind, Photofunia detects faces in the picture automatically. You select the area to which you want to add a funny photo effect by dragging the borders with your mouse.
Photofunia’s collection offers more than 150 scenes to play with. You can put your face on a billboard, a car, on a magazine cover. Become a super hero, a vampire, an angel or an artist’s model. Unfortunately, the effects are not classified into categories. It is necessary to search through the whole effects list.
The Filters tab disposes various effects that are commonly used in a typical photo editor. They are based on a play of color and light, shadow and contrast modifications. Thus, you can turn a photo into black and white, sepia, an old photo, etc. Thanks to the filters option, the model looks differently: romantic, mystical, radiant.
When the collage is ready there are 3 options to choose from. You can either save the photo on your computer, share it in social networks or upload to web albums or send a postcard.
I’d like to draw special attention to the saving formats. If you want to print your picture, the “large” option will suit you best because it preserves the best possible quality. “Regular” variant is optimized for web and email. And the last option is called “userpic”. It resizes a photo up to 100 x 100 pixels, the right size for icons.
On the whole, PhotoFunia is an extremely simple and nice photo montage application. In comparison to Loonapix the number of available funny photo effects is more impressive but they are not categorized. At the same time, PhotoFunia concedes advanced photo editing tools like Photo Montager because it lacks basic photo editing features. For example, there is no way to add a description, or resize an image according to the needed dimensions.
As we can see the ideal photo editing tool hasn’t been designed so far. Each web application has its advantages and shortcomings. I love PhotoFunia for its amazingly cute photo effects, and what about you?
