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.
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.).
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 😉
Have you ever been proud of something enough to forget that “modesty is the virtue”?

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!

We added 3 more cool photo effects for the artistic minded folks:
1) http://funny.pho.to/blue_only/ – leaves only the blue color in your photos. All other colors become black and white (great for emphasizing the blue eyes).
2) http://funny.pho.to/green_only/ – leaves only the green color and its shades in your photos. All other areas become black and white, too.
3) http://funny.pho.to/red_boost/. This effect emphasizes the red color in your photos, and also leaves the skin color untouched. All other colors become black and white. This creates a kind of retro look in your photos.
Feel free to experiments and share your photo effects with us!
