Last One to the Party?

I will not be the first one to mention this on a blog, and many regretted the passing of Picnik. But have you had a play on PicMonkey yet? I am loving it and can't wait to see what they come up with as they develop the site because it is the easiest thing in the world to go and play with your photos there. And if you ever found that Picnik took a little longer than the time you had available, PicMonkey gives what amounts to almost instant gratification.

Now keeping in mind that I am very easy to keep entertained at times, this is just good old fashioned fun. I went onto the website because I had some photos for a tutorial that needed 'things done' to them. I was instantly hooked on how fast and easy PicMonkey is to use. Perfect for numpties like me.

Some text and a simple frame.

Playing with colour and effects.

I love this brick thing!
And the 'film' frame.

Let's not forget a little cropping,
and a good old fashioned poloroid shot.
I think I have found a program that works for me as my needs are limited. And when they expand and ask for money for membership I will be at the front of the line - as long as it is not a stupid amount.

Did I mention that it is really quick?

  8. Ok, I'm gonna try it. I have been using Picassa for years but I might have to jump on board the PicMonkey train.

  11. I've all but given up on the photo editing websites. I guess I'll try this one out and see how it goes.
