Hi everyone, I wanted to give you a quick video tutorial showing you how to edit photos for FREE online using BeFunky. This is an online editing software that is free to use, or you can upgrade to a subscription. So far I have found that it is easier to use than Canva and has many great free options included. All the photos in this post have been created using the software. You can find it at www.befunky.com!
Below you can see the photos with the unedited and edited versions. I just made some quick exposure edits.
I have created this quick 6-minute tutorial showing you how I did the edits and introducing you to the software. If you have any questions about it please leave me a comment. Have fun editing!!

I am a high school yearbook teacher and I am really enjoying your course. It’s organized so clearly and it’s been super helpful. My question – how do you reduce a photo has an overall “yellow tint?” I’ve noticed this a lot in photos taken in our gym, but a student showed me a photo she took on the football field that was very yellow. Is there a way to correct this after the picture has been taken? What setting is causing this?
Hi Kelley, It sounds like the white balance is off. If you are indoors in a gym it is probably UV light and you will want to change your white balance to UV. Here is an article about white balance and how it affects your photos. https://livesnapcreate.com/how-to-set-white-balance/
In addition, this is easily fixed in post-processing software. I would need to know what you are using to give specific instructions on that.
you mentioned a photoeditor in the video that you said you would use instead of subscribing to befunky, what was that editor? Thanks!
Hi Jeannine. The photo editor that I mentioned is Pixelmator and can be found here: https://www.pixelmator.com/pro/
This is very similar to Photoshop but can be bought outright instead of on a monthly subscription(which lightroom and photoshop are). I have used Pixelmator sparingly, and have transitioned to Lightroom because in addition to being able to edit the photos it is also a photo management system.
