Applying Effects on Selected Areas with Erase Mode

When using BeFunky's effects, they often cover the entire canvas. Erase Mode, allows you to apply a specific filter/effect on a particular area of an image. This was previously called Paint Mode in BeFunky, and works the exact same way!  

Step 1: Click the effect to apply it to the entire image.

Step 2: Click into the effect settings, and select the Erase panel.

Step 3: You can work in two ways to selectively apply an effect:

  • Erase the effect from selective areas of your image. Click and drag on canvas to erase the effect. 
  • Selectively apply the effect to the parts of your image. Select the Inverse button to return your image to the state it was previously in. Select the Keep button. Begin painting on the effect in the areas you wish to apply the effect.

Pro Tip: You can also click the Isolate Subject button for our A.I. to automatically locate the subject of your image! 

Step 4: Fine tune the Brush Size, Brush Hardness, and Brush Strength to your liking.

Step 5: If you've made a mistake with either method, you can switch between Remove/Keep to either add or subtract parts of the effect on your image.

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!
