6 Quick Ways to JAZZ-UP your Photos

Ads by Google

A bunch of really cool and dead-simple tools to add a “WOW” factor to your images. We have mentioned most of them already, here I wanted to put the better ones together.

beFunky – This is by far my favorite tool. With beFunky you can take any of your photos and turn it into a cartoon like drawing. You can either convert it into a black and white sketch drawing or into a colorful animated painting.

And that’s not all, it also lets you do the same for videos. Check out the video below.

Note: beFunky is still in beta and currently works as an invite only service. If you want you can request an invite directly from the website (you should be able to get in within 1-2 days). If that’s too long than feel free to request an invite from MakeUseOf. More details here.

Rasterbator – Looking for DIY-style wall-sized poster? Got plenty of spare printer ink? Check out Rasterbator. This tool lets you take any image and convert it into a huge (up to 20 meters), awesome looking, rasterized wall poster. It’s a free, easy to use piece of software and the whole procedure won’t take you more than 5-10 min (well, not incl. poster printing and putting it on your wall). Available both online and as a downloadable program.

    I tried using Graphita but all I get is a circle with a hand inside and colored balls atop. I click everywhere .. nothing. What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks for the great list. I love art and things that can be done with the new technology. I can’t wait to start playing with these but the hard part if finding what to start with.

    Am I the only one who can’t use ImageMosaicGenerator? I submit the photo with the upload button, but then nothing happens…

      Are you sure your photo is in the right format? It supports only PNG, GIF, JPG and JPEG files.
