Trying to make your photos more interesting? Thinking about learning Photoshop to add some creative effects to images? How about achieving similar results by nothing more than point and click?

Check out the following sites to add funny, interesting and artistic effects to your photos:


This is one of those websites that will really make you think that you really don’t need Photoshop for photo effects. Photofunia has over 100 effects to choose from with new ones being added constantly. There are effects that work with face recognition, that is they will search for “the face” in your photo and put it appropriately as required by the effect. Other effects use the complete photo.

Dumpr and FunPhotoBox

Dumpr is another website that lets you choose the effect, upload your photo and get instant results. Dumpr was mentioned previously on MakeUseOf Get Cool Effects For Your Photos With Dumpr Get Cool Effects For Your Photos With Dumpr Read More . FunPhotoBox is also similar in concept. Together, all three sites give you plenty of effects and options to choose from and get the perfect effect you were looking for, according to your photo.

    I'm a big fan of mobile photo editing myself, apps like PicsArt and stuff are a lot of fun and useful. I've given up browser based editors and gone completely mobile, it's so much more intuitive.

    Nice list! Don't forget MaskIt!. It's a cool Facebook app to insert your (or others') face into pictures. Since it uses face recognition, it’s very easy. You can also create your own effect from any picture!
