What is PicMonkey? How do I get there?
First off, we want to make sure you understand exactly what you’re working with. PicMonkey is a free photo editor that works in your browser. There is nothing to download and install. This makes getting to PicMonkey easier than easy! Simply visitr www.picmonkey.com and you have arrived at your destination!
Ok I’m here, now what?
On the PicMonkey main page you can see you have 4 options: “Edit”, “Touch Up”, “Design”, and “Collage”.
If you choose edit you will be prompted to open a picture that you would like to make changes to. Some changes that you may want to make may include cropping, changing the photo effects, adding text, or adding your logo to the picture.
Choosing “Touch Up” will bring you straight to the “Touch Up” section of the editing options. This is exactly what it sounds like. “Touch Up” allows you beautify a picture with options such as airbrush, teeth whiten, redeye remover, makeup, and much more! Quickly and easily remove any blemish so you can look your best on social networks!
Choosing “Design” will lead you to a blank canvas. You may choose a size provided or click on “custom” to make your own dimensions. On this blank canvas you have many options and a lot of room for experimenting. You can choose a background color, add text, and import pictures to make a beautiful visual!
Choose “Collage” if you have a bunch of pictures you’d like to make a collage out of. PicMonkey provides you with many layout options to beautifully place your photos into for a great professional looking collage. Also check out the tutorials on the PicMonkey website for guidance is making the most of your photo editing experience!
Using PicMonkey is fun and easy, but I can’t think of what to make!
You see great visuals all over the internet, and now you are able to make them yourself! Start thinking about your brand and what you stand for and what will show people that you represent these things. For example, if you are involved in the community you could use a picture from an event and put a quote on it along with your logo. This would turn a typical picture into an appealing visual that would be getting your brand and logo out into the social world. Maybe you want to host a contest on social media, announce it with a visual! Make incorporating visuals part of your regular social media marketing by always asking yourself “how can I represent this in a visual?”.
