I recently happened upon this awesome photo editing website I would like to share with you: Pic Monkey! Pic Monkey Logo

I use photos all the time for my blog, my Pinterest page, Facebook and my Etsy shop. That’s a lot of pics! Although most of the time I just use my Iphone 5 to take photos and my desktop Paint program to crop and resize, oftentimes I need to edit or enhance my photos. I do use Instagram and Photoshop express on my Iphone or Ipad, but I’ve been searching for an inexpensive desktop editing tool and this is it!

Pic Monkey Front Page

Cheap is good, free is better. For free, yup, no $$$, you get a multitude of editing options including fun enhancements like backgrounds and collage layouts and text additions. You don’t even need to sign up, just download, edit and go! But, for less than $3 per month, you get an ad-free, amazing program with loads of extra goodies!

Pic Monkey Lux-O Design

In a short amount of time, this is what I produced with the basic, free, super easy, drop and drag online editing tool. This is the original collage I built from some photos of the amazing St. John wedding (almost a year ago, is that even possible?!)

St. John Original

This is the same pic, enhanced using a basic editing effect.

St. John Brush Effect

And again the same pic with a burst enhancement

St. John Burst

And this one is with the dusk enhancement. So many options!

St. John Dusk

Once you are finished editing, they ask you how you want to save the picture for the best resolution, depending on whether you are printing it or digitally saving it. They talk you through the options in regular language (not techno-speak) and have a bit of a sense of humor as well : ) LOVE.

And then you get to save it to your own computer files or share it via email or social media such as Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Tumblr. I’m pretty sure they thought of everything. But I really just started playing with the program, so I am certain there is so much more to discover!! Try it yourself, and send me a pic to post. And have a picture perfect Friday, everyone!
