5 FREE & Fun Digital Photo Sites
Irony of ironies...I've been working on a photo fun blog posting for a while now....so consider this a wee tasty appetizer until November. There are so many yummy things to share you'll get your fill and be inspired to give it a dab hand!
Now all these sites and more can also be found on my Sqworl Group: Digital Photo Fun
Inspired by my fav Squidoo Geek dagsmith - here's my fav Top 5 FREE & Fun Digital Photo Sites to satisfy you for now.
1. Deefunia: is Funky fresh and fun to use for blogging! "it's an online image editing tool that gives users a fun filled experience. Users can upload any photos and just wait to see the wonder it does. Any photo, though photos of people work best, can be placed in any number of unique photo layouts - both fun and embarrassing." The above pic is from my favourite template, then i Photoshopped it adding a posterize filter and created a less obtrusive deefunia.com cred on the bottom. Here's a widget for you to try it out! Try Deefunia out right on this page!
1. On the black widget below, click on Previous and/or Next till you find a template you like
2. Click on the image
3. Select Browse
4. Select an image file from your PC
5. Viola - you have your first Deefunia Photo!

2. Photofunia is an "online image editing tool that gives users a fun filled experience. Users can upload any photos and just wait to see the wonder it does. The most amazing thing is how it identifies the face automatically in the photo. You need some clear photo shots - passport or school photo style works best." An example of an animated gif created by Photofunia is at top with the TV's! Here's an example using a pic of my pretty fav auntie Lynn on our family cruise last year. She likes kitty's, too!
3. Picnik: If you have Flickr you automatically have Picnik...now just purchased by Google so it must rock! Dag says "if you want a robust tool that does a lot of different editing, then Picnik is your tool. It makes your photos fabulous with easy to use yet powerful editing tools. Tweak to your heart's content, then get creative with oodles of effects, fonts, shapes, and frames. It's fast, easy, and best of all it is a web based tool so you have no software to download." -- UPDATE: Sadly-- Gone baby gone!
4. Cut My Pic! The Free online image resize, cut, crop, round corners ... A fun, free, online web tool that quickly enables you to resize, cut, crop, add rounded corners and a drop shadow to your image, picture or photo!
Now I have to say in RL i like me some bling...to wear. I have issues with sparkly things...it's ok i'm in a 3 step program created by Tiffany. It's all good. And though animated gifs for websites went out with my old school Angelfire webpages i just can't resist Glitterfy!
Simply Upload your photo to Glitterfy and pick your glitter! If you really want to glitter your photos than try Blingee or Imikimi.
As a reminder, all these cool sites and more can also be found on my Sqworl Group: Digital Photo Fun and stay tuned for our TL Virtual Cafe Webinar in November!
