Many people ask me what program or site I use to edit and create all different kinds of images.  My response is always the same…PicMonkey!

PicMonkey is a FREE site that you can use to design, create, and edit images. You also have the option to upgrade to a Royale membership, which I highly recommend, for around $35 a year. As amazing as all the FREE content is, the upgrade gives you even more. I think it’s completely worth it.

Here’s just a few things you can do with PicMonkey…

edit photos– crop, change exposures like brightness and darken, sharpen, soften, add filters, airbrush flaws, reduce wrinkles, whiten teeth, touch up makeup, etc.

create your own designs– using your own photo or starting from scratch, you can create your own images easily. All of the graphics I make for awifeandmom.com are made using PicMonkey. You can add text, images, overlays, colors, borders, anything! They always have the most fun and hip graphics to add to your creations and seasonal extras are always being added and updated. Spooky themes for Halloween and festive ideas for winter. I love them all!

I also use PicMonkey to design invitations and announcements.  Start with a blank design and create with images, fonts, and colors until it’s perfect, then print them out at a photo center in 5×7 and you’ve just made the easiest and most adorable invitations! They also have collage options.

Did I mention that PicMonkey is SO easy to use? I promise you, you can do it, even if you’re less than tech savvy. Go check them out and fall in love with their site and services!
Update: PicMonkey now has a mobile app!! Yessss!
