Want to add cutesy elements to your pictures to make them oh-so-adorable? Then head on to PuriCute (www.puricute.com), a website that allows you to decorate, personalise and publish your enhanced photos on personal websites, blogs and social networking sites such as Facebook (yeah, try it there. K-popped! has a group going on, if you don’t already know ;-)).
We got a referral to the site in the e-mail one day and after a little digging, we discovered that the site is co-founded by a Korean and a Japanese. K-popped!’s request for an e-mail interview with Mr. Jun Kim and Mr. Kanya Suzuki went unheeded though. Bummer.
Ah well, we make do with what we’ve got, yah? After testing the site out here’s my conclusion.
If you are too shy to step up to one of those huge sticker machines at shopping malls then log on to PuriCute, upload your most smashing pix and go wild decorating it with the cute elements available. It works in a similar way to the machines as it enhances your pictures by adding cute graphics, words and even animation.
Check out what I did with my picture above. I admit, I got a little carried away and the pic’s a little “busy”. I’m sure you can do a better job of PuriCute-ing yourself, so go ahead :-).
