    "BeFunky allows you to professionally edit your photos in one spot. Instead of the whole photo like other companies out there, BeFunky allows you to break the photo down into sections. This gives you the ability to make changes at your whim. If you do not have much in the way of skill when it comes to editing photos, then BeFunky is worth the try. There is a free version so get it today!"
