Introduction to PicMonkey

PicMonkey is a new, FREE online photo editing program that works right in your browser. You don't have to download anything. Just drag and drop your photo to get started! It is surprisingly easy to use.
You can crop, rotate, change exposure, etc.
You can choose from lots and lots of effects. I am especially lovin' the "cross process" effect right now (since I don't have an iPhone or Instagram).
You can add text, too! I especially like this feature. I have a watermark for my photos but it is a pain to add it to them.
There are fun overlays and frames you can add, and the touch-up tools are top-notch. Here is Adam's pic before using the eye-brighten tool...
And after...
Here are some photos to tell you about what we did at our house yesterday. All have been edited in PicMonkey with the cross process tool.
Adam loved seeing yellow & blue make green and helped scoop the filling into the eggs (as you can see in the picture).
This is the "yestercolor" effect...
And here's a pic from last week of our snowman after he melted.
Want to give it a try? Click here to get started. Just drag and drop a photo from your computer into the blue box that says "edit your photo," and you are ready to roll!

Looks easy and fun! Sorry I missed your class last night. Outside adventures with kiddos called my name, even though we'd been out and about all day! Maybe I can make it on Thursday!
