Drop Shadow & Border

July 2021 | The wait is over! Now, you can easily add a drop shadow to your text layers. Our new Drop Shadow layer effect isn't just for text, though.

And along with Drop Shadow, we are also introducing a Border effect that'll embolden your layers and make them stand out from the background.

Enhanced the Replace Color Tool

Glitch Art Effects

September 2020 | Glitches are software errors or bugs that are often caused by a corrupted signal. The end result leaves your screen incredibly distorted and hard to make out. Lucky for you, we’ve just added all new Glitch Art effects to our Photo Editor to help you easily transform your modern photographs into retro shots with the perfect amount of distortion, no signal error needed.

Deluxe Tone Filters

September 2020 | We've added three Deluxe Edition toning filters - Warmer Tones, Analog Tones, and Black and White Tones. Using toning filters can help enhance colors, manipulate lighting, and more. The best part, customizing your own filter can help you create a personalized social media aesthetic by manipulating the tones and colors in your photos to be consistent.

Text Wrapping & Group Alignment

August 2020 | Perfecting the appearance of your layers just got easier! Now, your textbox width will remain the same as you type, only expanding if you adjust the size or according to your widest single character. With group alignment, you can easily customize the alignment of your layers by clicking the alignment button that corresponds to the position you’d like to align it to, and then clicking the same alignment button a second time to align the graphic elements individually.

A.I. Background Remover

April 2020 | Built entirely by our in-house team at BeFunky, the new Background Remover uses AI to automatically detect the subject in your image and remove the background behind it. Whether you need to create a transparent or solid-colored background or replace the background with a new image, this Background Remover is going to be your new go-to.
