Contest: Facebook Profile Photo Makeover

A few months ago, we partnered up with Pixable to offer their users an additional level of awesome - fun photo editing on the fly! With a simple click, Pixable users can launch Feather to tweak their profile pics, friend's engagement photos, step-grandma's poodle pics, etc. etc. This week, we're combining all our fun juices together to run a Facebook Exclusive contest, entitled "Profile Photo Makeover!" Plus we just like having contests!

The rules are simple:

Use Pixable's Photofeed app to choose a friend's profile pic (you can easily find them by choosing the 'New Profile Pics' category.

Edit the photo with Feather, our simple image editor. You can find the edit button on the bottom lefthand corner. Launch Pixable now.

Once the app is running,

  • Add a funny, hilarious, laugh till your stomach explodes comment with the text tool
  • Beautify the photo with a fun filter (polaroid, retro, instant, old news)
  • Adjust where needed! (change colors, add doodling, adjust brightness, blur, crop, etc.)
  • Slap a silly beard or hat with the stickers tool
  • Be as creative as you want!



Entries may be submitted in 2 ways

  • Download photo to desktop (option will be displayed after you click 'save'). Then upload it to the Pixable wall on Facebook.
  • Download photo to desktop (option will be displayed after you click 'save'). Then share it on Twitter with a #Pixable hashtag.
