Adding Photo Effects to your Photos

A Photo Effect is a tool designed to alter/enhance an image. BeFunky takes this core concept and molds it into photographically rich and artistically styled filters that can be applied to an image with a single click. By developing such effects, we eliminate the need for technical know-how, and give you the opportunity to easily explore different effects that bring their creative visions to life!

Some effects are only available for BeFunky Plus subscribers. Upgrade your subscription here!

Step 1: Open your image in the Photo Editor. Then, select the Effects section from the left-hand menu. Effects are grouped into categories. Each category will have a variety of options of the effect that you can choose from.

Pro Tip: The Favorites category are effects that you have marked as a Favorite. Click the star in the upper left corner of the effect and it will be added to the Favorites category. To remove a Favorite, click the start once more. Please note that when you Favorite an effect, it will not save the effect settings. 

Step 2: Click on one of the Effect categories, then click on the effect you want to use. This will apply the Effect to the canvas.

Step 3: Click on the effect Settings button to access the various settings for the chosen effect. Adjust the sliders to achieve just the right look for your project.


Pro Tip: Use Select mode to selectively apply the effect to your image.

Step 4: Click Apply to save your changes.

Step 5: Continue adding to and editing your creation. If you're done, be sure to save your project!
