BeFunky: Awesome photo special effects


I’m having way too much fun discovering new tools for the Cheapskate Computing book. A couple of people have recommended BeFunky, and I finally checked out their site last week.

I’m so impressed. Just upload a graphic and click around on the filters. Within minutes you can create an interesting graphic to spice up your website, your newsletters or your Facebook profile. Here’s what I did with a picture of me after the Seattle Marathon last summer. It took about 20 seconds to create. Cool, huh? BeFunky is an instant Beth Favorite. Their basic level is free (you can do what I did with the basic level), and the nice folks at BeFunky upgraded my account for six months (the next tier up is about 50 bucks a year) so I can investigate their premium tools.
