Photo to Cartoon Pioneers

Back in 2007, BeFunky launched with a single cartoon effect called the Cartoonizer. It was extremely popular but took a long time to create. Because of its popularity, we had to find a way to make it faster, so we built an online Cartoonizer that uses AI to add cartoon filters to your photos in a single click. Fast forward to the present day, and our Cartoonizer is still the most popular effect of all the art filters in our Photo Editor! You'd mail us a photo at that time, and we'd have one of our artists convert your photo into a cartoon by hand and then mail it back to you.

Easily Apply Cartoon Effects to Photos

To create cartoon photos, head to the Artsy section of our Photo Editor to select one of our cartoon filters. Or, check out the beautifully revamped Cartoonizer DLX in our Deluxe Edition Digital Art section. You can apply the filter immediately or take complete control and use the provided sliders to adjust the cartoon effect details to your liking. BeFunky's photo effects are so intuitive and easy to use that the whole process of creating a cartoon photo only takes a few seconds!

Whether you want to cartoon yourself, your pet, or create a fantastic landscape cartoon photo, BeFunky's cartoon filters have you covered. Right before your eyes, our Cartoonizer can transform your photos to reflect Andy Warhol's bold pop art style, one of your favorite comic books, the bold linework of a pastel drawing, and more.
