Price: Free, but the app offers in-app purchases

If you want to gain access to all features Artisto offers, you’ll have to purchase Pro or Plus versions of the app. However, the video capabilities of this app leave much to be desired for, as you can only create square videos in relatively low quality. In any case, Artisto is a great option if you would like to have some fun and turn your selfies and other types of photos and videos into cartoons.

Conclusion

Choosing an app you’re going to use to cartoonize your images may be a difficult task since there are so many different options available.
