BeFunky Graphic Designer
A totally new App is available to help you create the most awesome designs, pins, greeting cards, messages and more. It is available for free at https://www.befunky.com/features/graphic-designer/ – A Photo editor, Collage Maker and Designer all in one! There is an option to upgrade available at $4.95 per month or an annual charge of $34.95.
I wrote this post when I just started blogging and I must admit, my images are horrific! However, I would hope that my designing abilities improved, just as the app!
BeFunky hosts all the editing functions expected of a designer, with the following added features:
1. Photo Editor
With the Photo Editor, you are able to add the following Artsy effects to your images:
There is a new Deluxe Edition with all of the above features, more advanced off course, including PopArt.
To show you how it works, I went to Photo Editor/ Upload and then uploaded directly from Facebook. I cropped a photo of myself and my husband, Gerhard. Clicked on the paintbrush for some ‘Artsy’ options. I chose the oil painting feature and adjusted it a bit. Then I opted for ‘Effect’ and chose ‘Charcoal’ for this sketchy result – I love it!
2. Collage Maker
Uploads photos from BeFunky, your computer, Pixabay or Facebook directly into Collage and then use the following options to create collages with stunning effects:
- Collage Wizard – use it to generate layouts automatically without cropping any of your photos.
- Create your Own – create your own fully customizable collage.
- Layout Presets – drag and drop the build in layouts and just add your photos (could it be more easy!)
Layouts offered are:
- Big Photo Wrap
- Facebook Cover
Any of the layouts are fully customizable and cells can be dragged into differents sizes or completely deleted.
To round off your collage, you can use:
- A background colour or add one of the built-in patterns.
- Shape the collage corners to be rounded or squared.
- Add graphics or upload your own/watermark.The possibilities are endless!
- Images can be saved in .jpg or .png to your Computer, your BeFunky profile, Facebook, Google Drive or Dropbox.
This is an awesome feature – the templates available are:
- Event Graphics – Invitations, Save the date, Menus, Thank you cards, Posters and Brochures
- Small Business – Wide Skyscrapers, Leaderboards, Medium and Large Rectangles
- Blogger Resources – Blog Titles, Step by Step and Infographics

For our review I chose a Twitter graphic available under the Social Media Graphic Heading. Select your template of choice and edit accordingly. The first click already impressed me.
4. 430 000+ Free Pixabay Photo’s available
I randomly searched – Blue Moon – and the following stunning photo was selected out of various others:
Some text was effortlessly added and on top of that a frame to give it some extra finishing – very chuffed with the results.
What a pleasant toy and discovery this was – thank you BeFunky, I will surely BeF up my graphics with your user-friendly App in future.
