Have you ever wanted to see your face on the body of a celebrity? What about put pictures of your friends and family in different natural environments? Well now you can do this quickly and easily with Funny Photo Maker for Windows.

WHAT IS IT AND WHAT DOES IT DO

Essentially, Funny Photo Maker is a photo editing tool that allows novices to use a bunch of pre-set filters, modifications, etc. to edit photos.

Just like other programs similar to Funny Photo Maker, this is a photo processing tool that is easy to use. This program is geared towards people who are not talented using other programs like Photoshop. Now you can merge pictures of your family and friends with the bodies of others. You can place their pictures in different environments. In general, this is a user-friendly photo tool that can help you create fun new photos.

  • Expert users will feel underwhelmed

Discussion

If you’re looking for an easy way to edit your photos, Funny Photo Maker is for you. This program allows you to edit your photos in a number of ways for free. Although this is a fun and easy-to-use program, it is far from perfect. The people who are going to notice this the most are the ones who are used to more advanced photo editing software.

If you are looking for the bare minimum in photo processing, this will get you by. In fact, the name of the program says it all. It is a Funny Photo Maker. This is not going to make great processed photos like some magazines use. This is made to be used by people who want to put pictures of their grandchildren in cute frames. Messing around with the program is fun for a bit, but if you are looking for a deep experience, you are not going to find it here.

On a positive note, the things that the program does do, are done well. You can upload tons of different picture formats, including (but not limited too): BMP, PNG and JPG. I listed these just because these are the file formats that I chose.

The program comes with 25 different photo frames that you can use. This includes things like billboard signs, calenders and so on. They promise to add more frames in the next version, which is also going to be free. You can also put your face or your friends’ faces on other people. This is fun, but doesn’t work all that well. Usually the faces do not fit at all (even after adjusting them). However, kids are likely to have a blast with this. My favorite part of the program was the 2D templates. Here you can turn pictures into water and oil paintings. You can also include a number of effects like water, snow and so on.

The program also helps you easily upload the photos you make to social networking sites like Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter and Myspace. It will also help you upload your photos to other sharing sites like Flickr, Yahoo and SmugMug.

CONCLUSION AND DOWNLOAD LINK

Overall, the program does what it says it will do. Don’t expect to be blown away by Funny Photo Maker, but it will get the job done. I was a little let down with the lack of options, but it is nice to know that more updates will be coming out for the program at a later date. Either way, for a free program it is worth a look.

    @Eric989: It is not possible to upload files beyond 32 MB to VT, period. The hashing you refer to is to check to see if the file you want to scan has already been scanned on VT and, if so, give you the option to view that older scan. There will not be an older scan for a file that is later than 32 MB, so the point is moot.
    @permafrost: I’m not sure that would work and that is way too much work anyway — people should have their own anti-virus scanners on hand, our link to VT scans is just a plus. Still it would be a nice “science project” as Dave says.

    @Eric989: Sounds like VT Scanner program simply uploads the file’s hash value to VirusTotal’s website to return the results from the last time the file was uploaded and scanned. The hash value is a value based on the contents of the file. If even one bit changes in the file the hash will be different. It’s very unlikely that two files would have the same hash value. A hash value on part of a split file would not match any uploads unless someone split the file in exactly the same place and uploaded it for a scan. But, it might work to upload the parts of a split file to the VirusTotal website. Unless a hidden danger is split across two pieces of the file, VT might still find it. Good science project!

    The VirusTotal website offers a scanner that does the same thing as VT Scanner. It works great in your “Send To” menu. If file has been scanned before, you see the results quickly. If not, it gets uploaded and scanned. You also get the option to upload a file to get a new scan run on it.

    File too big for VirusTotal upload and look what Google’s Safe Browsing Diagnostic has to say about the site. Program looks fun but no way could it be worth the risk….

    @Ashraf: I was pretty sure I had read that somewhere or else I had had a weird realistic dream. You are right that VirusTotal’s uploader only supports 32mb, but there is another tool called VirusTotal Scanner that calculates the hash of the file and then upload’s that to VirusTotal for analysis. I don’t think this is an official tool of VirusTotal and I still can’t find whether or not it is useful for stuff over 32mb. I possibly initially misinterpreted the app’s purpose or made a mental note that this might work for larger files and to try it out if the need ever arose.
    I am not sure if this will work as good as uploading the whole file but maybe somebody can check it out further. Maybe this is worthy of a review? Maybe somebody can try files over 32mb that are known for high false positive rates and see if that shows up in the report? I am on dialup so somebody else is going to have to try it out. You can find it here.

    File too large for VirusTotal seems to be happening a lot lately. I believe they recently released a desktop app that can scan larger files. I am not exactly sure how that is supposed to work, but for the sake of these reviews you might want to give it a try and include its results.
