Easy Tool to Use to Edit Images: PicMonkey

Take an image or photo you have and upload it to PicMonkey. The best way to see what this site lets you do is to work with the tools. You'll find tools for cropping pictures, changing the color tones and textures, and other special effects. Once you finish your editing, you can add a text box. Your finished picture can be saved or screen captured to import into a social media site (e.g., Facebook) or inserted into your website or blog. You can also email the picture to someone. In the first photo, I just changed the color tone. The next two illustrate how I changed the original photo I took at the San Fran market to another color tone. The final two photos I doctored considerably to show some of the various effects.

If I had more time, I would add photos showing how the site allows for correcting blemishes and erasing facial wrinkles. Although some features on the site are for a fee, many are free. Photo editing sites like Photo Shop can get costly, and some of the same editing can be done with PicMonkey for free. Plus, PicMonkey is easy to use and intuitive in nature. Try it out, if you haven't. If you used it, let us know what you think. If you're using it for the first time, come back and post a comment to give your reaction.
