Reshape Your Subject

The BeFunky Reshape tool allows you to manipulate the physical appearance of images quickly and seamlessly. Read along to see how to use this powerful tool. The Reshape tool can be located in the Touch Up section of the Photo Editor.

Step 1: To get started, upload your image to the Photo Editor.

Step 2: Select Touch Up from the menu to the left and click on Reshape from the Essentials menu.

Step 3: If you’d like to stretch objects in your photo, then select the first icon on the Reshape tool menu, Smudge.

Step 4: Next, adjust Pressure to alter the intensity of the effect.

Step 5: Brush Size will change the surface area the tool will cover. When you’re ready, hover your mouse over the area of your photo you want to edit, then click and drag in any direction.

Pro Tip: If you overdo the Smudge effect, you can always undo your work by clicking the Erase icon in the top left corner of your Reshape tool menu.

Step 6: To increase proportions select Grow from the Reshape tool menu.

Step 7: Use the sliding scales to adjust Pressure and Brush Size. When your Reshape tool is dialed in, hover your mouse over the area of your photo you want to edit, then click and hold the mouse button. When you do, that part of your photo will begin to grow.

Pro Tip: Turning up Pressure will increase the speed at which objects in your photo will grow or shrink. When Pressure is set high, be careful not to hold your mouse button down too long.

Step 8: To Shrink objects, you will first adjust Pressure and Brush Size.

Step 9: Move your mouse over the part of your photo you’d like to shrink. Click and hold your mouse button, and watch as that area of your image become smaller and smaller.

Pro Tip: Over shrinking objects can cause a funnel effect, and make it appear as if your image is being sucked into a black hole. Use this one with caution! 

Step 10: Once you’re finished smudging, growing, and shrinking your photo, click Apply to save your changes.

Step 11: Continue adding to and editing your creation. If you're done, be sure to save your project!
