Who Needs Photoshop?!

I have been addicted to the Web since the day it was born. The other day, I did a video about Cameroid which can help you do all sorts of cool things with your video camera. I came upon a link from my friend Mona for a site that is similar to Cameroid… only even better. On PhotoFunia, you will get “the photo software that should have come with your camera”.

Click on any of the pre-defined effects, and then browse your computer to choose a photo. PhotoFunia will automatically apply your selected effect to that picture before displaying it! Once your picture is ready, you can save it to your computer, save it to ImageShack, or save it out as an avatar.

The second place I want to tell you about comes from JoshM. Dumpr is where you create marvellous photos to share with your friends. It’s very similar to both Cameroid and PhotoFunia. Again, you can take an image and throw it into a variety of effects. This site is free, or you can choose to sign up and pay a fee. Once you pay, you’ll have access to even more effects. Once you finish with your photo, you can save it to your computer or Flickr, or send it to others in an email.

So there are two very cool sites you can use to play with your pictures, and create something new.

  1. Chris , I enjoy and use a lot of the websites you post and have been with you a long time. The site for PhotoFunia will not work. Do you have to be a member of Flicker or have Picassa on your computer? It looks so cool, wish I could use it.

  2. I’ve found that having all the features of photoshop is quite helpful. When cropping and retouching just isn’t enough.

  3. Finaly something useful, I have been savin up for photoshop and now i don’t need to anymore! Thanks =)

  4. Wow, nice find. You can really make some cool stuff with those effects… it’s a lot easier than trying to do it urself…

    Thanks for sharing!

  5. I have Photoshop Elements 6.0 and I find it harder to do the basic editing things that I can do with a free program like paint.NET or Gimp… But at the same time it has a lot more tools for advanced editing that I sometimes use, so it is somewhat bittersweet…

  6. OMG, Chris I’m addicted to Photofunia now. I’m not getting ANY work done now. Thanks a lot!
