I originally wrote a post extolling the virtues of PicMonkey on March 14th – almost a month ago. At that time, I told you that it was becoming my favorite photo editing site. I wrote about it again on March 28th and included a link to an interview with one of the site’s developers, who originally worked for Picnik.
Time for another update. I see more features added nearly every day. PicMonkey is adding more fonts, more effects, and more textures. And I know a collage feature is on the way.
I noodled around with some of the new features today, starting with this photo of Scout:
I just added one effect – Burst – and came up with:
Burst intensifies color and is a lot of fun.
This shot of Scout (who was quite agitated because a squirrel was running around right outside the corral) was changed to:
I used the Film Stock effect, added a geometric shape and used a font to give the photo a title.
I cropped this photo, used the Sepia effect and then added photo corners.
And finally, I started with this photo:
Scoutie was running and she ended up way to the left in the photo. So I cropped it.
I sharpened it and used Focal Zoom. It really highlighted her heart-shaped spot. I also added a drop shadow.
There is so much happening every day on the PicMonkey site. Stop by and play a bit. You’ll love it. I will, of course, keep you informed on any other changes.
I don’t even use Picnik anymore.
Edited to add: iPiccy’s collage feature is up and running. I haven’t tried it yet. With all the competition out there, I’m sure this means PicMonkey’s will be available very soon.
