Pho.to Photo Editing Services
Pho.to is a collection of several different photo editing and sharing services. Each of the services, ranging from Makeup Photo! to Cartoon Photo! is an excellent and easy to use service - I recommend any of them. The services are all free; they are easy to use and have many excellent one-click features.
Once upon a time the site was a bit cluttered, but recent facelifts have improved the guidance to the main services - Touch up, Smart Fix, Tools and Filters, Avatars, Fun Montage & Frames and Cartoons & Face Fun. Funny.Pho.To is now in the easy to use range!
In addition to the main web site, Pho.to has invested in the mobile world with fun caricatures from your portrait photos with Augmented Reality Pho.to Cartoonizer app. A Pho.to version for the Android and their first entry into the mobile world, Pho.to for the iPhone.
Pho.to Cartoon Maker
Want to change facial expressions in photos of people with just one click, or even create funny animations? Cartoon Photo! makes this possible! This online service works in fully automatic mode: you just upload a photo from your computer or from the internet by entering its URL, choose an emotion from the list (joy, sadness, surprise, etc.) and get a funniest gif animation, or a static caricature. The service automatically detects the face in your photo and also lets you adjust animation speed and picture size.
Add Funny Hats to Your Photos - Great face recognition - A FAVORITE feature
Ribbet Photo Editor - Pho.to Alternative
Ribbet is built on the same platform that made Google's Picnik great and is an easy to use yet powerful online photo editor. You can use Ribbet for collages, touch-ups and advanced photographic effects like curves and clone tools, fonts, frames, stickers, vampire effects, beards, and an entire pond full (yes, get ready to deal with some froggy puns) of effects. Like Picnik, there will be a free and a premium version.
Make a Photo Cartoon - One Step with Facial Photo Recongition
If you use digital photography as a way to boost your creativity, Online Photo! Editor is what you need. It offers an impressive set of artistic photo filters that let you turn your photos into mosaic art, a pencil drawing, an Impressionist oil painting, and what not! Just start experimenting, and make your photos look unique.

PicMonkey - Great Pho.to Alternative
PicMonkey, a creation of several former Picnik engineers offers a simple and easy to use tool for editing and altering your images. Even if Picnik was still around, PicMonkey would be a great alternative!
The entirely Web-based editor is fast and effective, and among the cleanest interface (PicMonkey and Ribbet will be fighting for that title) for a photo editor (Web or desktop) that I've come across. In the left-hand column you see all of your options. And that includes everything from basics likes cropping and rotating to a full array of air-brushing edits. In Picnik style, you can add icons and text and throw a frame around a photo. Basic edits consist of crop, resize, rotate, as well as color tweaking and sharpening. There is also an auto adjust button much like the one that was among Picnik's top features. And, obviously, the clone (copy) functionality is pretty cool too!

Shaped Photo Collages
Want to make a flower, a heart or butterfly from your photo collection? Use templates from this group to make amazing photo collages. There are many collage services with more features, but Pho.to has some of the best shape options.
Tuxpi Photo Editor
Tuxpi is a easy way to apply photo effects or picture frame effects to a photo directly from a webpage. you only need to upload a photo, apply a photo effect or picture frame and the re-download it the modified photo result. Every effect is one step! So it's a not a full service photo editor - but what it does it does with ease! It has several effects not easily found on other sites - filmstrips and newscast are great to create fun photos. You can also combine multiple effects for some great customization
Pho.to Fire Effect - One Click Photo Effects
Flames of Fire - Even if you are not a fire worshiper, you'll certainly enjoy making your picture look like it is made of fire flames.
Augmented Reality - Pho.to Keeps Innovating Photo Effects
Just picture yourself pointing your camera at a friend and getting a cartoonized caricature with an animated broad smile or a cute wink! It's not a magic camera we are talking here about, but an amazing application - Augmented Reality (AR) Pho.to Cartoonizer - that allows applying tons of photo effects to portraits. Just launch the app, point your iPhone/iPad camera at a friend and choose an emotion or a freaky effect from the given list (14 FANTASTIC FACE MORPHING EFFECTS are available).
