Let’s be honest – mugshots are the kind of pics that never go out of style (if you haven’t actually got to jail, of course). So if you’re curious to see what your mugshot would look like – keep reading this article!

There are fake mugshot maker apps for Android & iOS that lets you create mugshot edits fast and easily. These apps let you come up with different kinds of edits: from classic mugshots to western-style ones. In other words, you’ll get to make mugshots for any occasion: from IG posts to album covers.

We’ve gathered together the 7 best fake mugshot maker apps you may try. Have a look!


Let’s start with the most obvious yet the most time-consuming app of all.

In the first place, this app doesn’t come with pre-made frames or something, so you’ll really need to get patients editing your mugshot. But…why bother? Well, although this app requires some time and patience, it will give you the best-looking mugshot. Herewith, if you need a mugshot to laugh with friends or to joke – this app may be too much.

But if your goal is to make a high-quality edit, this one is your best choice. You may get confused if you’ve never tried to make such complex edits, but you’ll cope with it in the end. First of all, you’ll need to take a photo suitable for a mugshot. The requirements are pretty low: a portrait with a light black background (the wall will be fine).

Then, go to the app, make all the standard color corrections and retouch, and go to the stickers. Sounds odd, but the app covers a wide collection of stickers of any kind, including custom ones. Just look for some nameplates, metered background, and maybe even a robe. Adjust everything to look realistic, and the mugshot is done!.

Next, we have a poster-making app that lets you create western-inspired mugshots in a few clicks.

Sooth to say, this app is the full opposite of the previous one. It’s fully dedicated to one tool, incredibly simple to use, doesn’t give you a variety of frame options, and so on. Although, it gets the job done fast and the results look nice enough to include it in the list. Plus, it’s fully free, so there are basically no risks for you.

And yeah, there are only western-style “wanted” games here, so you won’t get to make a modern mugshot. Herewith, the app covers several frame styles with different quotes, which is pleasant as you can personalize the pic more. For instance, there are “dead or alive” posters and the ones with funny arrest reasons.

The mechanism is simple, just choose one of your portrait pics, then the frame you wanna use, and that’s it – the wanted sign is ready. The quality is pretty nice, and there’s no watermark as well. Once you’re done, you get to save the shot, share it with mates or publish it on social media.

Wanted Poster Pro

As for the concept, this app is pretty much a copy of the previous one, but with some changes.

First of all, the app is for iOS only, and it will cost you a one-time dollar fee. There are no extra paid features though, but you still have to pay before downloading it. The app is incredibly simple to use, so even if you’ve never edited pics before, you’ll be able to cope with it. It covers plenty of western-style frames for any possible occasion.

On one hand, you’re limited with western “wanted” signs, but on the other: there are so many designs that it doesn’t even seem bad anymore. The app is worse simply, at first you need to pick one of the 11 templates that are offered. Along with the classic ones, there are fun options for Harry Potter fans, and more.

Next up, you’ll need to pick a shoot. Make sure to choose close portraits with semi-blank backgrounds, but it’s totally up to you. Then, you can add custom funny phrases of any kind, adjust the fonts, and it’s done. The app doesn’t ruin the quality of original picks, so no worries here. You may also share it with mates with a few taps or send it right into printing.

However, that’s quite enough to create funny simple meme pictures and have fun together with your friends.

The app contains some amount of integrated ads just like the other ones in this category. But its advantage is that it offers an unusual idea for fake mugshots that stand out from what others can offer. In total, there are 7 different templates that you can choose from.
