PicMonkey is here! I tried it and I like it! Yesterday, I received the e-mail from PicMonkey telling me that its photo editing program had gone live. I rushed over there and found that their photo editing program is easy to navigate and it’s a breeze to edit your photos. It’s very similar to the Picnik format, so those of you who are lamenting the upcoming demise of that program will have an opportunity to see just how similar these two programs really are.
The site isn’t fully in place- there will be other features added to the site in the near future- I believe they were just anxious to launch as soon as they were able to get the basics down. I opted to receive the free ‘premium’ features for the next few months so I can play around with them. Once all of the site’s features are enabled, I’ll make my decision as to whether I’ll pay for a yearly subscription. I edited the photo below in just a few minutes, in spite of the fact that I was unfamiliar with where things were. :-) I tried to employ some of their options, including clipart, borders, text, etc.
I actually edit most of my photos in Picasa, since they are downloaded automatically to that program when I place my SanDisk into the All-In-One. I always used Picnik for the extras, such as re-sizing a photo, adding borders,and applying layers of clipart. Photoscape is still a go-to site because it has so many options for collages. I’ve found that PicMonkey is the easiest program to use of the four other editing programs that I’ve recently tried- Pixlr, Phixr, Gimp, and BeFunky. I was looking for something that was free - (except for the premium features, of course). I have Photoshop, but I have never been able to master it!
So pop over to PicMonkey, check it out, and play with your photos a little! Then come back and tell me what you think. :-)
