How to See Your Face on a 10$ Bill - Fun Photor Photo Editing Software

Imagine one day you get up in the morning and see your face on the 10$ note in place of  Alexander Hamilton’s. Imagine if a friend of yours sends you a greeting card and you find yourself in the Mount Rushmore right beside US Presidents. No I am not joking exactly. The practicality of the situation is quite impossible but, you can do all these things through Fun Photo Creator - ZeallSoft FunPhotor. Let us take a rather light hearted tour to know more about this product.

As you have already figured out, that Fun Photor is a photo blending software, a fun-filled Windows application that lets you combine your photos “with well known artwork for obtaining comical images.

Description & Features

  • What I liked about FunPhotor is that, its not merely a program that lets you cut from one picture and simply add to another. It actually creates a custom mask that determines the size, shape, and location. You can even use the blur tool to blur the portion of the picture you are editing.
  • You can also select a photo from your video camera. You can move, flip and rotate pictures. The brightness, colour and saturation and contrast is very receptive to changes which is good.
  • You can also add texts to the edited photos.. You can also select the font, bold, or italic, and choose the size, color, and transparency.

There are lots of options to create the fun photos. Not only creating masks or cut-paste.

  • You can start from scratch and create your own fun photo.
  • You can use two photos to combine between them.
  • You can create your own template and create a fun photo from there.
  • You can create fantasy photos from webcam too.

When done, you can choose any of these extensions from JPG, PNG, BMP, TIF or GIF, and save your work, print it or send it as an email attachment.

Other key Features

  1. Supports Video Cameras to take your picture.
  2. Only 4 steps to create fun photo. Very Easy and fast!
  3. Over 100 cool templates to make editing easier

System Requirements

  • Windows 98/ME/2K/XP
  • 550Mhz Intel or AMD CPU or above
  • 32M Memory RAM or above


Well if you take it all for fun (which it intends to actually) then there are some very trivial issues that will bother you. First is price. FunPhotor Standard comes with $49.95 and I think, looking at the purpose its way too much. Again with that price they shouldn’t have allowed only 6 extensions of image files to the settings.

Final Verdict

In this serious world of geeks and softwares, FunPhotor is surely an old concept with a fresh air. The software works absolutely fine. its easy, recourceful and can really be a source of enjoyment if you love to laugh. There is no harm in trying it out. Buy if you wish to. But I surely recommend it to be seen for a nice and jolly photo-genic weekend.

Sonds interesting, but just for your information…Alexander Hamilton is on the US $10.00 note. I only know that without looking as I write the tourism websites for the West Indies island of Nevis. Alexander Hamilton was born there.

BTW I posted a question in the adrotator section if you get a moment
