PicMonkey Now That Picnik Is History

Found out from some blogging friends that there's a new monkey in town!

Picnik is taking a hike on April 19, 2012 so along comes a new photo editing hero in PicMonkey. Picnik was so much fun to use as a blogger and I know a LOT of people who had the premium package for all the extra goodies. Well, don't cry over spilt milk. PicMonkey is here to give you what you need!

First of all, go play over there. How else do you make friendly with the natives if you don't hang out and get to know them? Don't want to play with your own photos? No problema. They've already thought of that and gave you THREE of them to try their monkey tools out on!

Start off with your basic tools and then BAM! on the left side of the editing screen are all your extra goodies!!

  • Effects
  • Touch ups
  • Text
  • Overlays
  • Borders
Looks like they're going to be adding collages!!! I know, happy dance, right?

Now of course, you're going to have the opportunity to upgrade to PicMonkey Royale as the site gets up and running and you'll be able to get the blingy bling! Right now they're even going to give you coupon for a discounted subscription if you sign up for the currently free Royale treatment! You better get in there now while those bananas are free and have fun editing those photos of yours!

For the record, the day I found out about PicMonkey, I went in there and edited one of my own photos and it was REALLY easy to navigate. I had a hard time sometimes finding the tools in Picnik because they never made sense to me. Well, the labels at PicMonkey help you find what editing tool you need and away you go. I also played with all three of their sample photos so if I screwed something up I'd be safe. LOL Yup, I'm a chicken! Sue me! I like things simple and easy to understand. PicMonkey works for me!
