BeFunky A.I. Artsy Effects

Photo to Painting Filters

BeFunky offers an impressive assortment of photo editing tools that give your pictures the appearance of being painted. We use an A.I. technique called Style Transfer, where we can apply a filter to your photo that simulates the style of a painter or artist. Our Oil Painting effect recreates that matte, blended aesthetic, while the Watercolor filter transfers light, fluid brushstrokes beautifully to your canvas. Each painting effect takes complicated brushwork techniques, color blending, and depth to transform your images into beautiful paintings. Upload your image to the Photo Editor, select one of our Photo to Painting filters, fine-tune the effect, then download your creation. It's really that easy!

Photo to Cartoon Effects

Ever wanted to cartoon yourself? When BeFunky launched in 2007, we had a single effect called the Cartoonizer. At the time, you'd have to send your printed photographs to us, and our artists would turn them into cartoons and then send them back to you. We've come a long way since! Now when you use our online Cartoonizer, you'll be able to turn photos into cartoons in seconds! Choose one of our original Cartoonizer effects or our revamped Cartoonizer DLX filter in our Deluxe Edition Digital Art section. You can even stack our Photo to Art filters to create a unique, one-of-a-kind look.

Using technology to create art isn't a new concept here at BeFunky – we've been developing digital art effects since 2007. This innovation continues with our Deluxe Edition Digital Art effects. This collection features remastered versions of our most popular effects, such as Cartoonizer, Oil Painting, Sketch, Watercolor, and Pop Art. Thanks to the added detail in texture, natural-looking brush strokes, and saturated color palettes, these digital art filters are just what you need to elevate your photography.
