There is no registration required to use the free basic version of the site. However the site also offers a premium and a professional membership priced at $4.95/month and $14.95/month respectively. The paid membership doesn’t has any restriction on the size of the picture, sports an ad-free environment and also provides a service to store the photos online.

But as the saying goes nothing is perfect in this world, BeFunky doesn’t feature an eraser tool which proves to be a great disappointment. The free users can upload pics of max size 616×460 pixels only. Also the edited photos (of a free user) sport a ‘watermark’ on the lower right hand corner.
