Every once in awhile you come across a tip or a tool that is designed to make your life easier. Yesterday was one of those days. You see I was listening to the Social Media Examiner podcast on my way to work and Michael Stelzner made mention of a tool that he uses to create those amazing photos you see on Facebook, Pinterest and blogs. The great thing about this tool is that it can do basically everything I need out of Photoshop without all the bells and whistles and hefty price tag.
When you go to picmonkey.com, you can simply drag a photo directly to their homepage to get started. Once your image is there, you are ready to begin editing. You can do all your basic editing right from here:
Once you have cropped, resized or sharpened your image, you can move on to the fun stuff like adding text with different fonts, changing the effects of the image, touch ups and adding graphics.
You can have a lot of fun with this app and if you are really ambitious, they also offer a premium level of service.
All the best, Scott.
