beFunky animates your photos, videos

Posted on April 22, 2008. Filed under: Avatars, File conversion, Fun, Graphics | Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Anybody see the movie “A Scanner Darkly”? Where everybody was turned into a realistic animated version of themselves (well, except during the hallucinations…)?

Try it yourself with beFunky and ‘cartoonize’ your photo or video.

  • Turn your photos into digital paintings and comic style animated cartoons.
  • Convert videos into cartoons.
  • Create and enhance cartoonized avatars: Choose between different background scenes, clothes and accessories, hairstyles, etc.
  • Warp tool: push and pull any area of an image (enlarge lips, reduce nose size, etc.).
  • Get a black and white pencil drawing of any photo.
  • Embed your beFunky stuff on your blog or profile pages.
