Introducing PicMonkey!

by Cindy on March 10, 2012

Hello!

Many bloggers and those who sell their handmade work were sad when they learned that Picnik would be closing soon (me included). Now you know, I love taking pictures and editing them.  Some dread this part, but not me.  It is the cherry on top!  I dabble with PSE and used Picnik on the side.  With Picnik closing, there has been discussion about other great options out there.  Pixlr is one good option – a free photo editing program with LOADS of great features.

A site for “fearless photo embetterment” just went live.   I took it for a ride and love it.  Let me introduce you to a witty new photo-editing site:  PicMonkey.

 

PicMonkey has the features we love:  fancy text, borders, touch-ups and all sorts of effects.  And its good to know that they are adding even more useful tools (such as collages).  Here are some shots that I edited with PicMonkey -

Die-hard Picnikers, I think we have some GREAT options for photo editing!

this is so wonderful to hear… i loved picnik as well (cannot imagine that google has nothing lined up as a new product, but the only thing i read was that they were going to encourage using something in google +)… will head over to this site today… thanks so much cindy!

Oh I’m so glad….I love Picnik, and I am so sad to not have them anymore. I’ll try out PicMonkey. :)

Beautiful photos Cindy. I like you – love the photo editing process and I am happy to have PicMonkey as another easy to use and fast editing option!

Love the photos, Cindy. And the heads up about a couple of other options for Picnik. I am so sad about them closing and was at loose ends about where to turn for my photo editing. I’ll definitely check both out soon.

Wow – thanks for sharing this post. I am still so sad that Picnik is leaving us. I will have to give this editing site a try. I also love your pics and the editing you did! Wonderful job!

Thank you, Cindy! Just tried it out – it is great for non-techno-geeks like me! I use Photoshop Elements, but this program is FUN! Thanks again!

Thanks for a link to a TOTALLY cool site! I went and played with it and it’ll work perfectly for setting up pics for my little digital album (something mentioned in my latest post for having a pocket-show in your purse).

Bahahaha I thought the header on site said ” Immoral photo enhancement” hahahahaha….oops it’s immortal! hahahaha

I will definitely try them out…I have been a bit morose over Picnik, but I think Google is picking them up to use with G+…

Thank you for this Cindy, I was wondering what I was going to use for editing my photos and I like the wonderful things picnik let us do and now we have some other options. I love the pictures of your old vehicles they are awesome.
