More – Having Fun With Pictures

  • September 23, 2009

FunFacer.comFunFacer is one of these popular sites that let you create a photo mashup. In this specific case, by using it you can create your own funny images by uploading a picture, doing the necessary adjustments and choosing in which picture you want your face to be plastered, and where.

The edition process is entirely carried out online, and you can check out a preview at all times. You can add hair, lips… whatever you want for effect. Once the finished picture is ready you can proceed to save it and show it to your friends, or to the hapless soul you caricaturized.

Right now, featured pictures include Bodybuilder, Soccer Player, Basketball Player, Lion Man, Cheerleader, and the lethal “Drunk Man”. I know many that will shudder at the latter.

The site is still in beta, but it is already fully usable. Future revisions will bring about customizable flash games, animations and e-cards. If you liked the way the site stands and functions now, chances are you will like these as well when they materialize.

Iconizeme.comWere you a fan of the caricature portraits that artists would draw of you at fairs as a kid? With Iconizeme, you can get the picture without returning to the fairgrounds of your past- in fact, without leaving your house. Users email iconizeme a photo of themselves, and artists complete the portrait in 30-90 minutes (although, due to backorders, the portrait is usually delivered in a few weeks).

The website currently employs three very different artists; styles range from simplified, cartoon-like renderings to lifelike, vector-style works, to bold, flirty art. The final work is delivered in a PDF file, an icon file, a high resolution JPEG, and a GIF file.
