For once, clicking on an online pop-up ad had a good outcome. We saw the phrase "cartoonify yourself" and couldn't resist clicking. It took us to befunky a website that, among other effects, will "cartoonify" your photos with just one click.
Simply upload a photo and choose one of nine effects to (with several variations within each) which befunky then applies to your photo which you then save to your computer. We think these photo alterations would be fun for holiday cards, invitations, framing (it will take longer, but you can use images with a high enough resolution to print photo quality) and even making a custom cartoon for your child. You can also have your image put on mugs, tshirts and such directly from their site. What other ideas can you think of?
Try it yourself at befunky.
