You don’t need to be a professional photographer to share great travel photos. When it comes to beautifying your images, it’s all about the editing. However, most of the photo editing softwares out there can be costly and/or complicated. Enter, BeFunky Photo Editor – the only photo editing app you will ever need.
BeFunky is an extremely comprehensive online photo editor and graphic design platform. The feature-filled app lets you upload photos, add and adjust filters, make a variety of edits to the image (from editing brightness to blemish fix), add text overlays, stickers or frames, and create create collages. They also have a mobile app that’s great for editing images on-the-go. I was recently introduced to the BeFunky photo editing app and can honestly say it’s one of my new favorite editing tools and one of the most feature-filled apps I’ve used in a while.
Below are a few tips and tricks for how to beautify your images with BeFunky:
Most tools and effects have a “Paint Mode” that you can click on to selectively edit your own photos.
A levels tool can be found in the edit tab on the sidebar. You can use this to adjust levels, shadows and highlights for better balance.
Make colors pop by adjusting the saturation in the edit tab. You can also edit color by adjusting the overall temperature or hue of the image.
Cropping & Leveling:
Use the crop tool to change the size of your image for publishing in different formats and aspect ratios. When cropping, remember to also format and level the image, to ensure your horizons are always straight.
BEFORE & AFTER:
BeFunky Photo Editor is also great for creating picture-perfect portraits. The Touch Up features are a life-saver when it comes to editing portrait photos (or, you know, selfies). You can use the skin tool to fix wrinkles and blemishes, as well as apply bronzer and blush. The Eye tools allow you add mascara and brow pencils, fix red eye, brighten eyes, or even modify eye color.
Within the touchups toolbar you can also apply lipstick or whiten teeth. There’s even a “slimming” feature as well as a reshape tool.
For the image below, in addition to the beauty pre-set and some basic edits, I used the hair tool (to touch up my roots), lips tool, slimming feature, skin tool, and a bit of the reshape tool.

Filters, Frames & More:
In addition to basic edits, if you’d like to add some creativity or color to your images, you can choose from a ton of different photo effects. What I like about BeFunky’s effects option (besides the fact that there are SO MANY to choose from), is that you can control the effect amount. You can also choose the “paint” option for applying effects, if you only want to apply said effect to a certain portion of the image.
EFFECTS BEFORE & AFTER:
BeFunky’s Graphic Designer makes it easy to create customizable graphics sans photoshop. The customizable templates are great for creating blog and social media images, or you can use BeFunky’s easy drag-and-drop technology to design your own beautiful images. The designer toolkit also features high-quality stock photos, through BeFunky’s partnership with Pixabay.
