I’ve been using PicMonkey for quite some time now and am still learning new ways to use the simple graphics program. A couple months ago, a photo of my chihuahua was used in a post to show a couple ways how PicMonkey can be utilized. Today, I’ll use a random picture of a fish I took at the local pet store…

Isn’t it a pretty fish!
So here’s 4 fun ways I like to use PicMonkey.
#1 Shadows and contrast
Before applying the shadows and contrast tool, this is what I started with
Then I selected the top icon in the far left column called “Basics Edits”. A menu column pops up and select “Exposure.” I clicked on the little circle under shadows and also under contrast and slid it left or right to get it to look like this… tah dah!
This is the photo that I used for all the following edits…
There’s LOTS to do with the “Frames” feature! It is the third icon from the bottom on the far left column and looks like a frame. You can use “Cut Out” to make specific shapes as the outline of a photo…
The very first photo in this article used two different “Frames” – “Cut Outs”(using the rectangle) and then “Simple Edge.” For something that makes a bigger change, try “Dauguertype.” It’s like the old timey photos… Super cool!!!
So there you have it! Four different ways to utilize PicMonkey to manipulate a photo or even create a graphic. Are you looking for a very user friendly way to enhance photos? PicMonkey is easy to use and doesn’t cost a bunch. I highly recommend it!
