Using the Funky Focus Tool

Funky Focus lets you push the limits of reality in your photos. With a few steps, you can create a tilt-shift effect, change depth of field and turn everyday images into memorable photography. A blurred background is a great way to put all the emphasis on your subject. You can use this effect in our Edit tools!

This tool is only available for BeFunky Plus subscribers. Upgrade your subscription here!

Step 1: Open your photo in the Photo Editor. In the Edit menu of the Photo Editor, select Funky Focus.

Step 2: Funky Focus gives you the option to blur images using Radial mode (for a circular shaped blur) or Linear mode. You can select these options directly above the Blur Amount slider. They’re the first two symbols on the left.

Step 3: For shallow depth of field, select a narrow point of focus in your target. For further depth, simply widen your focal point. To do this, you adjust the target’s size by clicking on the blue circles and dragging them with your mouse inwards (to make smaller) or outwards (to make larger).

Step 4: Blur Amount and Opacity can be adjusted by sliding the toggle left and right until you achieve your desired look.

Step 5: By clicking on the Invert icon you can flip which parts of your image remain in-focus or blurred. Check out the Black & White or Mosaic options as well to give some more depth and texture to your focus area.

Step 6: Click Apply to save your changes.  Continue adding to and editing your creation. If you're done, be sure to save your project!
