AdornPic Web Site Review

AdornPic Helmet Sticker Hugh Fox

AdornPic is a new free online photo effect website.  The site will paste your photo into an existing online photo.  You could probably do this pretty easily with a photo editor and this effect is all over the web.  If you like this effect then you should try Funnwow, Funphotobox, JPGFun, LoonaPix, Pato.pl, Pho.to, Photo 505, PhotoFaceFun, and Wishafriend.  On this site, the effect is not particularly varied or impressive and includes character pictures, nature pictures, indoor pictures, magazine pictures, and outdoor pictures.

The nature effect is probably the most interesting of the standard stick your photo into an online photo effect.  The face-in-the-hole effect in which your face is substituted for that of a celebrity is done very poorly since there are no easy to use mouse controlled alignment and resizing tools. You can move your portrait a bit but not much and the resizing is difficult to do and again not mouse driven.  For example, FXMagic does a much better job of the face-in-the-hole effect than AdornPic due to the use of mouse controlled tools.  I played with this effect for a bit and skipped the effect in the end due to the poor results.

AdornPic has online filters.  Rollip does the same sort of thing and has more filters than AdornPic.  BeFunky, Tuxpi, Phixr and fotor also have lots of online filters.  Lomo filters seem to be especially popular online.  However, the colorful “light filters” on AdornPic are a new addition to this sort of effect online:

AdornPic has tons of stickers which are photos stuck onto your standard photo and does this better than any other site online including Ribbet.  Ribbet might have more stickers but AdornPic has better stickers!  Doing the sticker effect would be incredibly hard with a photo editor.  You would have to cut a complex shape out and paste it.  You would have a hard time doing this with a mouse and would probably need to use a drawing pad and even with a drawing pad this task would be very hard to do and time consuming.  AdornPic does use stickers in an impressive and unique way.  The special stickers include crowns, glasses, hair, hats, helmets and masks.  There are lots of other stickers but they are not as impressive and I skipped applying them.
