PicMonkey for Photo Editing

ScreenHunter_01 Apr. 21 17.04

Have you tried PicMonkey yet?  Take your product and blog photos and make them awesome!  Picmonkey is ready to take the place of Picnik for all of your free photo editing needs.  I’ve tried it…and I like it! :)

I’m a serious photo taker even if I can’t take my digital camera off of auto.  I take most of the photos for Everything Etsy and lots and lots of product photos for my shops.  Great photos can really help you sell and it’s not as hard as you might think to crop, brighten and add a few words to your photos.

Fun, fun, fun…I’m telling you, you are gonna love it!

You can easily drag a photo from your desktop and start getting creative with it in seconds.  There’re lots of features available beyond your basic editing and I’m sure you could spend an hour or so over there playing around with a few photos to try them all.

It’s super easy to ad text to a photo!  This is perfect for watermarks on your photography and all your Etsy item photos.  I love to use it for graphics for blog posts.  The way Pinterest works it always helps to have a graphic that can be shared.

Don’t forget to check out the Paper Scraps and all the cool textures!  I can imagine it would be a dream come true for some scrapbooking fans. The possibilities are endless and all it takes is a photo and an idea to get started.

Have you tried it yet?  What’s your favorite feature?

    I haven’t tried it but I get curious since it says collage is coming soon, I’ve been scouring the internet for that for quite some time now and haven’t found anything easy and good to use. :( Might be worth a look even if I already have photoshop!

    I had to leave a comment even though I generally just lurk. I tried it and I couldn’t believe how well it worked on my not-so-good pics. I just wanted to stop by and say thank you! I’ve been enjoying your posts and learning so much!

    I discovered PicMonkey last week and I am so happy! I will be even happier when they release the collage feature. Loving that there’s a replacement for Picnik.

    I’ve been waiting on a good program to use for this purpose. Thank you for letting us know it’s available. How consistent do you think the photo mark needs to be? Exactly the same, color, size etc. on every image? or is some variation ok?

    I LOVE it!! Played all afternoon and it feel it is better than Picnik was….sorry….just my ever so humble opinion!!

    Hi! Watched the video tutorial you made and in it was referenced “blanks” to use as bases for the button, banners, etc. How do i make these?? Thanks!
