I came across this website when surfing the web and found it quite interesting. PicJoke offers a line of amazing effects that makes your photo looks like the next big billboard ad, magazine cover, newspaper, and even iPhone with you as the star. Well, not all effect makes it that way. Some were just playing funny. You can see some of the choices below.
To get the these effects just choose which one suits your taste and upload your photo. Youcan get different amazing effects in less then one minute. No need to be a photoshop expert at all. Here are some of my own experiments. Pretty cool, huh?
A word of advice though. You might want to pick picture of you with good resolution, with almost the same position like the sample picture, and a bit glamorous. Otherwise, you might end up with missing mouth like mine here.
Since the picture is generated by program, so who know what the outcome will be. Be patient and do some experiments if you don’t get the star impression.
As for the technical stuffs, this is some serious image manipulation using PHP. I’m pretty impressed and curious about the codes, but I bet it still use the GD graphic library.
