Most young people are a fan of using Social Networking Websites like Facebook, Orkut, MySpace and they dont think twice about posting their real photos online but thats really risky because they can be misused and its preferred to limit the uploading of your personal stuff online. Here is another way of showing yourself online which is Cartoonizing yourself ie transforming your photos into cartoon images.
You don’t have to use any hard Image Editing Applications like Adobe Photoshop because there is a Online website called Befunky.com which can convert all your original snapped pictures into beautiful cartoons with marvelous photo effects. These kind of output is only achieved by Photoshop Pros and when you can get this done with a simple online tool then iam sure you would recommend this to everyone.
There is a advanced version of this ulitlity called as the BeFunky Plus which allows you to process Images upto 4000px X 4000px size along with 125 different effects and creativity. In the free version you get a small Watermark which is kind of ribbon on the top left area but the Plus version allows you to remove this and keep your Masterpiece ideal for any use. The normal version is also stuffed with Advertisements but the Plus version does not have anything and its completely a Ad-Free tool.
BTW If you are looking for something for your Apple iPhone then you can download the iPhone App which allows you to upload the Photos from your iPhone Photo Gallery and then add creative effects to it. Now you can easily play with your personal photos anytime and get the creative modified versions right away. You dont have to worry about your privacy now because the original photos would be safe and a cartoon version would be available for everyone to be shared which does look cool and also would keep you secure.
