BeFunky Review – Photo Editor And Graphic Design Tool
1. Awesome landing page (when you sign in)
I know. This isn’t really a feature for BeFunky but trust me, login numerous times to online graphic tools such as Canva and PicMonkey (to name a few), I was “wow-ed” the first time I log in.
Here’s what you can expect and see when you log in:
As of now, there are more than a dozen features you can start with. Most of the features are pretty easy to use and it works like a charm to say the very least.
For the record, BeFunky is probably one of those online graphic tools that wow’s me right after I log in.
2. Ready-made templates
You can go crazy using BeFunky. The only thing challenge you will probably face is the limitation of your imagination.
With BeFunky, you can choose between ready-made and blank ones. Ready-made templates come in several segments such as:
- Event graphics
- Small business
- Blogger resources
- Social media headers
- Social media graphics
- Greeting cards
As you can see above, templates in each category are custom-made accordingly to the category. Let’s take a sample category for easier understanding.
In ‘Blogger Resources’, it comes with four different sub-categories such as:
- Blog images
- Blog titles
- Step by step
Clicking into sub-category ‘Blog Images’ will lead to you another section which has many pre-made templates for you to choose from.
Note: Did you notice the round magnifying glass? Move your mouse around the image and a small magnifying glass will be visible. Check out the details in the photo. It’s super amazing!
3. Features you should be using
There are many features and it may be a little confusing at first. Don’t worry as there will be many pop-ups or info’s which will be visible along the way.
The first feature is the font. As far as I could remember, nearly all of the online graphic tools use their own fonts but BeFunky takes it to a whole new level by allowing you to upload your own fonts directly from your computer.
This is extremely important features especially when you are doing a graphic for full time or even want to create graphics which stand out from the crowd.
BeFunky ‘graphic designer’ allows you to customize each font to your liking; choosing the size, spacing, paragraph, colour, opacity and even blend mode. And those are just some of them!
There are also options to duplicate and even more advanced features to improve the user-ability and allowing you to create even more stunning images.
4. Adjustable size and zoom level
As a graphic designer, we are always guilty of resizing our images to check for flaws.
Take a moment to think about this. How many times do you actually enlarge and reduce the size of the graphic to ensure that it is created to perfection?
With BeFunky, you can do that in just a few clicks! Take a look at the image below:
You can drag the scroll bar to any size you wish and “Fit” is a one-stop button that allows you to automatically resize the image to fit your screen.
And if you love distraction-free graphic designing, you should look for the button on the far right of the image above.
You basically go into full-screen mode and bam! You can create graphics without being disturbed or distracted by the flashing taskbar or time.
5. Save and share your projects with ease
BeFunky Designer allows you to save your project in various methods. For example, you can easily upload your graphics into various file saving application such as DropBox and Google Drive.
You can even save the graphic directly into your BeFunky account or save it as a project for future usage.
The different methods graphic saving functions allow you to be extremely versatile and integrate BeFunky into any current saving preferences of yours, without needing to do changes.
Apart from the various saving features, there are also many share options you can choose from. Here are a few:
With BeFunky share feature, you can easily share your masterpiece to various social media platforms. This doesn’t only save you time but as well as it helps to increase your visibility on social media.
Imagine that you are doing a graphic to upload to your Facebook page. With BeFunky, you can easily do so with just a few clicks!
It doesn’t only save time but as well as increase your productivity overall.
6. Pricing and packages
BeFunky is a freemium graphic tool that comes with two very simple pricing; ‘Basic’ which is free and ‘Plus’ that starts as low as $2.91 per month.
A detailed comparison can be seen as above. While you may still be ‘okay’ using BeFunky Basic account, I would highly recommend going for BeFunky Plus as it is worth all the money.
With BeFunky Plus, you are able to get all the goodies such as additional premium templates, different graphic elements to use and creating high-resolution outputs which could scale up easily to 4000 x 4000 pixels.
Of course, BeFunky Plus also eliminates the advertising banners which may appear during graphic creation as well as the option to use the full-screen workspace for distraction free graphic designing.
BeFunky’s Designer tool is one of the best and most user-friendly graphic designer tools I have ever used. It works well with nearly all browsers and computers (even really old ones) which prove to provide great compatibility.
Apart from that, BeFunky is already in my ‘toolbox’ because it offers many features which others do not. For example, the option for me to upload my own font is a crazy (in a good way) feature to say the very least!
