The time has come and the brand-new version of Pho.to Lab PRO is already available on Google Play. Such things do not happen every day, so we believe it’s well-worth mentioning what great new things you should expect from Pho.to Lab PRO 2.0.
The major change that came to Pho.to Lab PRO 2.0 is the completely re-designed interface. First of all large previews for categories and templates were added for you to find the right effects and explore new ones at once. Another usability change and a plus for the Pho.to Lab PRO 2.0 is a quick navigation bar. Now it became easier to switch between groups, access the home page or select your Favorite filters.
Take a quick look at the updated interface:

How to become a tester
If you are reading this post, you must love taking photos. Do you know how to make your favorite shots stand out of the hundreds of pictures you have? You must have stumbled upon advice to use rule of thirds, diagonals or negative space. But mastering these techniques can take years.
Do not worry, there is a special ingredient that can make any of your photos look outstanding. Change a picture’s color saturation, add a few shades or change the focus area and you will see that the photo has improved dramatically. Don’t worry, it’s really easy! You don’t have to master Photoshop or GIMP and spend hours working on a photo. Pho.to knows some trusted post-processing techniques, so this site will help you improve your photos significantly in a single click. We have selected 6 different effects, and each one of them can change your photos in its own unique way. However, the common traits of these techniques are their high quality and versatility.
Find out about all the effects!
It is always exciting to release an update for the whole group of effects, since we think of it as of a major update. At the moment it’s all about one of our (and hopefully yours too) favorite groups named ‘Featured Sketches and Paintings’, that has been enriched with optional artistic backgrounds.
Thus every effect in the group is now available in 2 variants: you can either get your drawing as is (on a single sheet of paper) or put it into a realistic background (on a sketch board, in a sketchbook, etc.).
Get down to applying all new backgrounds now!
Sometimes the only thing a photo lacks is a little bit of emotion. If you are one of those people who do not take their photos too seriously, there are plenty of ways for you to play with face photos: change face expressions, apply realistic emotions, warp the face making it look freaky or turn a photo into a cartoon to boost the fun. It can be done right in your browser with just a couple of clicks.
First of all upload your photo to Cartoon.Pho.to. You can either choose to upload it from disk or via URL if the image already exists somewhere on the Internet.
When the image is uploaded, the cartoon filter is applied to it by default. Here is an example:
At this point you get access to face morphing options that enable you to create animated photo caricatures from face photos. Just check the ‘Face morphing’ box and you will see the list of available emotions. Meanwhile a ‘Smile’ already appears on the face:
Move further and you will be able to make a person flirt, wink or raise eyebrows in surprise!
Have you ever seen the awesome works of Belgian artist Ben Heine? Here are just some examples:
Inspiring, isn’t it? We were absolutely exited when saw it and decided to do our best to give you the opportunity to make such works of art. So… meet our new stunning template – “Pencil vs reality” .
It is fully ready to turn your picture (а portrait, landscape, family photo, etc.) into a pencil drawing, leaving the background area “real”.
For those who is marveled as we are by Ben Heine’s works, here is the link to his masterpieces
New version of Pho.to Lab for iPhone and iPad is out! The update is a major one and brings a whole new group of truly artistic effects, that were only available in DEMO mode on our site before. With this update you will also get 3 new color emphasizing effects and will notice that effects previews are of better quality now.
If you are a Funny.Pho.to loyal visitor you should already be familiar with “Featured Sketches and Paintings” templates. They aimed at turning your photos into paintings and drawings imitating a chosen technique. You can process your photo with seven of them: Trois Couleurs Drawing, Sanguine Drawing, Vintage Charcoal Sketch, Pastel Drawing, Graphite Pencil Sketch, Felt Tip Pen Drawing and Crayon Drawing.
Starting from now, all the listed effects are available in every version of Pho.to Lab: free, PRO and PRO HD, but with one tiny difference: though you can apply any of these effects in any version, you must be a PRO user to be able to save the result to your gallery, instantly share it on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram or send it via email.
And one more change related to this major update: effects from “Featured Sketches and Paintings” group at Funny.Pho.to service will have a limited functionality very soon. You will be able only to preview, not save or share the result. The only way to save and share the result is through the mobile app. This said, install the latest version of Pho.to Lab, take great pictures and make them even better right on your phone!
P.S.: “Featured Sketches & Paintings” group for Pho.to Lab Android is on its way

Then you will understand our wish to share a small portion of feedback we have been getting on the latest version of Pho.to Lab. Remember it’s not that we are boasting, we are just happy that most of you enjoy the improvements. So let’s go for it! Readmore »
It has been a while since we announced the launch of the portrait enhancement app Visage Lab for iPhone and iPad users. From now on it is Android fans’ turn to experiment with all the face retouching algorithms, artistic filters and effects it has to offer.
Visage Lab is a portrait retouching app aimed to automatically boost a photo, e.g. to remove pimples and wrinkles, outline the eyes and whiten the teeth within seconds. You can apply all the improvements at once or exclude some options you think unnecessary.
But Visage Lab functionality doesn’t end there and after the groundwork (we mean the enhancement) is done you will be offered to add a bunch of artistic effects to your picture. Divided into four groups, they allow you to change the background, experiment with styles or play with lighting and colors.
Android users can enjoy both Free and PRO versions. The PRO version is ad-free, contains more effects and filters and doesn’t add watermarks to your photos.
Turn your photo into a picture-perfect portrait with the help of Visage Lab high-quality retouch and picturesque effects.
