Check out how we keep making BeFunky better.
Volume Light & Color Bleed
February 2022 | Volume Light and Color Bleed have been added to our extensive library of effects. With Color Bleed you can add watercolor details, providing an abstract-meets-digital flavor. Volume Light lets the bright points of your image radiate to create heavenly imagery.
Hide & Lock Layers
November 2021 | We added the ability to hide and lock design layers so you can make more precise adjustments. In the Layers & Groups menu, you’ll see two icons when hovering on each layer. Hide any layer to get it out of the way or use the feature to quickly A/B test a new element. Lock the layer to prevent it from moving or resizing independently.
October 2021 | Let's try to keep things organized, OK? Now you can create folders in the Project Manager to store your projects. When you save a project, you'll have the option to save directly to a folder. Or, you can open up the Project Manager and drag and drop to your folders.
September 2021 | Our #1 most requested feature is here! We really took our time with this one. And in that time, we were able to make it the best curved text feature out there. It works seamlessly with all of our other text properties so you can create an immersive design with ease.
Copy/Paste External Text & Images
September 2021 | Now you can paste images and text directly from your clipboard onto the BeFunky canvas. Text So simple. So perfect. This update really makes your workflow more efficient! Try it in any section of the app.
August 2021 | We’re happy to introduce yet another new feature to make your creative process easier – Color Management. Now, right in the Color Picker, you can easily find and save your favorite colors and quickly access your most recently used colors!
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. You'll find that it's available for shapes, graphics, and image layers too. You can even use it to create a beautiful glow effect. 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
June 2021 | We know you loved the Replace Color tool just the way it was, but we went ahead and made it better! Now you have the option to Preserve Luminosity and keep your images looking natural while making adjustments to color.
New Blend Modes
June 2021 | In a continued effort to help you unlock new avenues of creativity, we've added 3 more blend modes - Color, Hue, and Luminosity - for you to utilize when adding layers to your creation. We hope this helps you achieve your vision!
Improved Tablet Experience
June 2021 | We've made some big changes for you iPad users out there. Gestures are more intuitive than ever and we have really optimized the touch experience so working on BeFunky feels good no matter where you are.
May 2021 | Alongside our site refresh, which includes a new color scheme and crisp category graphics, we’ve also added the option to alternate between Light and Dark themes during the editing process. You can even change the canvas independent of the overall theme so you can choose the best option depending on what you are working on.
May 2021 | We’ve taken the guess work out of how to add professional-looking text to your projects. With our new Text Patches, you can add a block of text for any occasion! Birthday cards, menus, signs, business cards...it’s all there!
A.I. Artsy Effects
February 2021 | We’re happy to introduce the next segment of our A.I. Series, Deluxe Edition Artsy Effects in the Photo Editor. These new effects use a technique called Style Transfer, where we mimic your favorite art styles and apply them to your photos. Using powerful artificial intelligence, turn your photos into art with just one click!
Progressive Web App
November 2020 | Getting and staying creative with BeFunky just got easier. You can now access BeFunky from a dedicated window on your desktop! Don’t lose your project by accidentally closing BeFunky or misplacing it in a sea of tabs. Streamline your creativity by installing BeFunky to your desktop today.
A.I. Image Enhancer
November 2020 | You could spend hours modifying the colors, saturation, and contrast, manually enhancing every element until your photo looks its best...or you could use the A.I. Image Enhancer. This segment in the BeFunky A.I. series uses powerful A.I. technology to amplify your landscapes, portraits (or selfies), cityscapes, and more, to the next level—no complicated editing tutorials necessary.
A.I. Portrait Enhancer
October 2020 | In the latest addition to our ongoing BeFunky A.I. series, we've added the A.I. Portrait Enhancer to the Photo Editor. This tool is powered by the highest standard of artificial intelligence to help make adjustments to your portraits and selfies a breeze, without any heavy lifting on your part.
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.
Font Management Update
February 2020 | When it comes to adding text to photos and designs, font selection is everything. We’ve added some major upgrades to make your font library bigger and more customizable than ever before! Including easier ways to add your favorite fonts from your computer, the ability to access and add Google Fonts, and new ways to organize them into your own curated font collection.
Edit Image Layers in Place
February 2020 | Instead of bringing your image layer to the Photo Editor, now we’re bringing all the power of the Photo Editor to your image layer! Just one click of the Edit Image button will bring all the essential editing tools and photo effects of our Photo Editor on demand, so you can edit that image layer and see how it looks with the rest of your project in real time!
December 2019 | No more guessing if your designs are positioned just-right. We just added some handy Guides to help you measure your designs to perfection! They’ll help you easily set your own parameters, margins, and safe areas no matter what kind of design you’re working on.
Smart Resizing for Design Templates
November 2019 | Have you ever created a design that you wanted to use in more than one place but the size just didn't work? Rather than restart a design from scratch, you now have the ability to resize designs at any point in your design workflow! Talk about a time saver.
November 2019 | In addition to being able to save your work in JPG and PNG file formats, now you’ll find a brand new PDF file format option to choose when you select the Computer option in the Save menu.
Added Pexels to Stock Photo Library
November 2019 | Our free stock image library was already huge, but now it’s even bigger. In addition to providing you stock photos from Pexels and Pixabay right within our web app, we’re elated to add Pexels to our list of stock photo partners. That means we now have millions of free stock photos for you to easily access and use in your BeFunky projects!
Template Library & Basic Shapes
October 2019 | We've really stepped it up with graphic design at BeFunky! You'll now find hundreds of customizable templates in a brand new Template Library to help you get started with everything from the perfect party invite to branding for your business. And you can now add Basic Shapes (customizable geometric design elements) to your creations anywhere in the app.
August 2019 | With our Clipping Mask tool, you can now add an image inside of any text, shapes, vector graphics, or PNG! Clipping masks are just one more way we’ve made photo editing and graphic design simpler than ever.
