I did a review on BeFunky last year and since then, the company had done a lot of updates and rolling out new features. And let me be really upfront and honest here. These new features are really good and definitely take image creation to whole new levels.
But before that, let’s go down with some of the real reasons for image creation. You need to understand that image creation will make or break your marketing efforts. Gone were the days where you can simply get images from Google. In today’s world, you don’t need to be proficient in image creation to create a great image. All you need is powerful imagination and some awesome tools (like the one at BeFunky).
Want to know what are the latest image creation tools out by the new BeFunky? Here’s a quick and short list!
- Photo Enhancer
- Crop Photo
- Photo Editor
What is BeFunky Photo Enhancer (and why it matters so much)?
BeFunky Photo Enhancer will make your images looks more-than-just-great in a single click.
Using BeFunky Photo Enhancer, you can easily turn images into super, crystal clear images. Taking directly from their photo enhancer page, they use a technique called as adaptive exposure. This feature allows them to surpass any other typical HDR effects. Their HDR DLX automatically separates the image into regions. Thus, allowing it to make those tiny adjustments based on lighting conditions of each region. With this feature, precise adjustments such as contrasts, sharpness and color enhancement will make the image come to live.
Do you know that BeFunky Photo Enhancer is able to solve four of the most common photography problems (poor exposure, lack of detail, color issues and image noise)?
And that’s not all about BeFunky Photo Enhancer. It comes with Photo Sharpening which increases the contrast along the edges within the image. We are all aware that any images will look bad when there is too much sharpen effect being applied to the image. In order to solve this challenge, BeFunky’s Sharpen DLX feature will help boost the contrast, improves the details and adding depth by precisely sharpening only the edges that require it. As a result, images created using BeFunky Photo Enhancer will be more realistic, high in detail and most importantly, saying “goodbye” to the annoying haloing effect!
Photo Enhancer also comes with Denoise DLX. But wait! What is noise in photography? Typically, it is known to describe the graininess of a photo taken with incorrect ISO setting and/or in low light conditions. This intelligent tool will ensure that all your images are checked thoroughly for noise in both the chroma and luminance. In layman’s term, the BeFunky Photo Enhancer will be able to provide you with beautiful images without losing any original details on it.

The features are insanely enormous and in many cases, you can only find those on desktop version (for other photo editor applications). But yes, I got to send my “kudos” over to the BeFunky team for developing such a great mobile application.
Being a complete beginner in photo editing (trust me, I’m really bad at it), In most cases, it takes hours just to do a photo edit. Do I need to remind you that I hate editing?
