My blogging and event management needs for Mommy Bloggers Philippines has me needing a photo editor where I can easily and conveniently edit my images. PicMonkey has been my answer and being a Royale Member for over 2 years now it’s certainly been worth it.
Posters, invitation, banners and almost every kind of illustration you can think of can be done on PicMonkey.
What I like about PicMonkey is that it’s FREE to use and is easy and accessible. It’s pretty much a no-brainer using PicMonkey and you can do so many things especially on a Royale membership. However, a basic membership also gets you far but once you try the other premium tools and find that you have a need for it, the investment is well worth it. I have edited and touched up photos, and designed and created collages. The power of images on a blog is great and aside from the usual fixing up of an image you can watermark them to identify the images as just yours.
My need for PickMonkey is pretty basic but if you are looking for a photo editor that will give more editing options PicMonkey is quite capable. PicMonkey also provides free tutorials so if you’re trying to achieve a certain look they can lend you a hand with that.
Most of the work I do on my images I do it here. I crop, resize and adjust the lighting here.
Touch up is a good way to fix those pictures if a face is too shiny or teeth aren’t as white as we’d like them to be. You can even remove blemishes and red-eye.
Sometimes I need to create a poster or banner for an event and will need overlays.
They have wonderful theme packs for every occasion, from birthdays to Halloween to Christmas. In each theme pack you get all the editor options plus tailor made tools specific to your chosen theme.
