MagMyPic.com

I've discovered yet another site that will let you turn any picture into a magazine cover! Cool, huh?!?!!! It's MagMyPic.com. I actually had fun tinkering around! The only downside is that there are just 14 magazine covers to choose from as of press time. But don't yah worry...the site says Choose from 14 different magazines - more added all the time! So I guess they'll have more options to choose from soon! I can't wait!!!Ü Oh, and one more thing...their site doesn't offer moving the picture once uploaded so that you can position it better in the magazine cover you've chosen...so any editing must be done outside using whatever tool you have (Photoshop, perhaps?). But what's nice about it is that the site doesn't take long to upload your picture so you can immediately see what the effect of the picture is on the magazine and then just adjust it accordingly in the photo tool you're using.

Once you've uploaded the picture, the next thing to do is to choose what magazine cover you want for your pic! My personal favorites are Cosmopolitan and Seventeen (seeing as these are magazines that I actuallyl read Ü). Then after choosing, the site will be asking you if you want it in Small or Medium size (I wonder what happened to Large?!???). I've always chosen the Medium option since the Small one might be too tiny.

When you've gotten this far, you have quite a few options of how to share your picture: (1) by Quick Post to some of the partner sites they have like Friendster, Blogger, MySpace, Multiply, Wordpress, etc...(2) by Copying the Code that they'll be providing...and (3) by right-clicking on the picture itself then selecting Save Picture or Image As. I've always done Option 3 so that I have a copy of the picture itself. What's not so nice about it is that the personalized magazine cover is just 397x514 in dimension. So it's really not that big, but I guess OK enough to see who's on the cover.Ü

You actually have an option of letting the world vote on your personalized magazine cover by ticking the Let others view and vote on my magazine! at the end of the entire process.Ü Then if you have time, you can actually browse through some of the posted magazine covers then and vote if you like them or hate them! HAHAHA!

Well, to end this, I'll just leave you with some of the magazine covers i've done so far. Hope you enjoy viewing the 'zines!Ü
