We have already covered at least 5 sites that will change the way you work with digital photos as well as more than 10 sites to add amazing effects to your photos. Today’s collection is only about making fun of your face to create cool fake photos and arrange funny pranks or create humorous greeting cards for your friends and relatives.
The best thing about these tools is that you don’t need any design skills or master Photoshop or any other complex image editing tool. Editing your photos takes seconds and in the end you get a high-quality photo effect. We have already mentioned the three tools below in our previous round-ups and reviews but hopefully this collection will get you inspired!
Photo505 is a fun tool that has lots of built templates inside. Here’s a quick video tutorial on how to use the tool.
It’s very quick and fun: all you need to do is to upload the photo of your face or make a new photo using the web camera.
There are about 200 templates built where you can place your face in:
- Make your face appear in the newspaper or a magazine;
- Place your face in a street billboard, artwork, theater or “Wanted” poster;
- Put your photo in a T-shirt or tattoo.
The tool claims to use face detection technology to identify your face in a photo and place it in a new fun context. Frankly, the quality of the created fake photo is extremely high. See for yourself:
The resulting photo doesn’t have the Photo505 watermark, so you can freely use it elsewhere.
There’s also a Facebook application that lets you create funny photo manipulations using your album photos right inside your Facebook account. Besides using the app, you can quickly upload the edited photo to your Facebook account to share it with friends.
LunarPix is another high-quality online photo editor. It also features dozens of high-quality photo effects for you to choose from.
The tool will also apply photo filters to make your photo look natural:
Apart from offering plenty of awesome photo effects, there are also a lot of cool “face effects” featured. A “face effect” is a pre-built template (“face in a hole”) which you can put your face in to pretend you are standing next to a celebrity or appearing in a famous movie poster.
Face effects are broken down into “movies”, “celebrities, “costumes”, “kids” and “sport”.
Besides various manipulations with your face, the tool also lets you create pretty avatars and frame your photos.
WriteOnIt offers to create a card, photo montage, magazine cover or face in a hole photo.
The resulting photos seemed to be a bit lower quality than with the above two tools. Besides that, the tool adds a tiny watermark to it:
But the variety of photo effects offered still makes it a worthy tool to check out.
Besides, it works great for creating fake magazine covers. Not only can you feature yourself on a glossy magazine cover, you are also able to add fun text to complete the effect:
And here’s the outcome:
I imagine this can be a great tool to share your personal news with your blog readers or social media friends.
