BeFunky – Fun, Free Photo Editing For Your PC

Monday, July 21st, 2014 by | Filed Under: Digital Photography, Photo Editing
 
Loading...


One of my favorite apps on my phone is the BeFunky photo editor. It allows you to crop and add effects to images taken with your smartphone. But unlike other popular photo editing apps like Instagram and SnapSeed, you can also use BeFunky on your laptop or desktop through a browser version of the app.  Let’s check it out.

First, go to www.befunky.com and choose Get Started. You can also get the app for your Android or iPhone here as well. You don’t have to register to use it, but you can choose to join BeFunky to share your images. You will need to have Flash enabled on your computer to use the editor.

You’ll be taken to this page for editing.

You can select a photo from your computer, Facebook, a webcam, your BeFunky uploads, Flickr, Photobucket or Picasa. You can also experiment with a sample photo.

I selected a photo taken with my phone’s camera.

 

The tools for editing are off to the left of the page. At the top, you’ll see Crop, Resize and Rotate.

You can crop by dragging handles on a grid or by typing in a width and height. You can also choose to constrain the proportions of the cropping.

You can resize by pixels or percentage and rotate or straighten the photos. But the real fun begins when you get to the editing tools. One quick trick to brightening up photos is to choose Beautify.  You can adjust the intensity of the effect by moving the slider bar under amount.

Check out the Before and After.

You can also choose to apply that effect in Paint Mode.  You select a brush size and apply the effect only to certain portions of the image.

Choosing Exposure allows you to adjust Brightness, Contrast, Highlights, Shadows and Fill Light by moving the slider bars. You can also choose Paint Mode and apply to only a portion of the image.

Choosing Colors will let you change Hue, Saturation and Temperature. As with the other adjustments, you simply drag the slider bar and you also have the options of a paint mode.

You can adjust the Sharpen effect yourself or choose the Smart mode.

There’s also a blur option.

The color mixer will let you adjust Red, Green and Blue values as well as work in a Black & White Mode.

Soften allows you to apply a dreamy effect to your image.

When you are satisfied with changes to your images, you can choose to Save it to your computer or share through a social network.

You can also choose to order a print. (To print from your computer, just save it and print from there.) There is an option to upgrade to a paid version that offers additional effects, lets you work with larger images and contains no ads. But that’s completely optional.

In future articles, I’ll check out some other fun BeFunky editing options.
