Photofunia is a completely free and fun utility that can add effects and cool backgrounds to any photo that you have stored on your computer or mobile device. There are hundreds of different templates or backgrounds to choose from, and the process of transforming a photo is amazingly simple.
This program has been around since 2007, and it keeps getting better with time. The latest version is fully compatible with Windows 8 and provides users with a fast and easy way to modify and enhance their photos. Simply select the picture and background you want to use, and the program will take care of the rest. You can put your likeness into a famous work of art or turn it into a sketch. You can become Santa Claus or one of many other fun characters with the click of the mouse.
There is something for everyone, and you will never run out of creative ideas as you try different backgrounds, effects and enhancements. You can save, print or share the finished product, and the entire process only takes a couple of seconds once you make your selection.
I love this program simply because it is so much fun, and I tend to use it when I have a lot of extra time on my hands and just want to play around. I can add text and turn a face into anything from a billboard sign to a picture on an Easter Egg. You don't need any artistic skill or an abundance of creativity either. Just run the program and get started.
You also do not need any technical or design experience, and it can work on any computer that is using the Windows 8 operating system. There is also an app for mobile devices that enables you to take a picture, run it through the editor and post it on your favorite social media site for the world to see.
