Pros: I've used PicMonkey for years now. Who needs Photosh** (yeah I said that) when you've got PicMonkey?

Yes, maybe if you are a professional making a living from images... but most of us aren't.

Seriously... their tutorials are short and to the point, so I can do a quick search and learn whatever I need to do with an image for my small biz. They have quick images, oodles of fonts, backgrounds and more. They have lots of templates for people who need help with graphics or want a quick idea to get the project moving quicker.

Some things you can do:

-- You can use several images in a collage.

-- You can erase the background so a person can be kinda cut out of the background and added to any image or used in many different ways.

-- Cut out an image in a shape -- like a star for Valentine's Day (2 days away).

-- Make Instagram stories.

-- You can do weird things like swapping two peoples faces in a photo (weird but true)... never did that one but read the tut recently!

-- You can edit photos -- edit blemishes out, add make up, whiten teeth, color hair.

-- Change a photo into an image that looks drawn.

I also might see an image (like on Ancestry) that I need... and can capture a quick screenshot with the Chrome app. Quick editing, add text, arrows, whatever. No, I'm not violating copyrights, just images of ancestors etc.

My work is saved to the cloud so I can easily find and re-use in some manner (with edits).

Cons: Honestly, I can't imagine what I'd need that PicMonkey can't do.

Overall: I use PicMonkey for simple text images to make something stand out nicely on a web page or even Facebook. I love quotes and other text on Photos (meme) and enjoy playing to make things eye catching... even just the text itself!

Pros: I blog, with lots of pictures. I tried to learn Adobe's picture software, and it was just way too much work for me. PicMonkey is mostly intuitive. There are two features I especially like: When all I want is to correct color, brighten, etc., I use the first option called "Auto Adjust." That usually does the trick and I am ready to export and post the picture. The second feature involves cutting something out of a second picture to add to the original. Just click on the "graphics" butterfly on the left side, then use the "add your own" feature. It will bring in whatever picture you choose from several sources and give you the option to erase anything you don't want in the picture, then place what's left where you want it in the original. Very nice.

Additionally, there is a good collage section with lots of choices. I also like that a picture can be saved to PicMonkey to be changed again or added to a collage. They also have "Touch Up" and "Design" sections that I have not used.

Cons: PicMonkey does not have drag and drop. It would be easier if they would add this feature because I am so used to doing things that way. I also wish that I could jump from Picture Editing to Collage without exiting first.

Overall: With the help of PicMonkey, my blogs are more interesting and well-received. It has helped me to gain several hundred followers and make new friends.

Pros: My wife and I were both blogging and found ourselves regularly needed photo editing software to create eye-catching pictures for our blogs. We tried several options but none of them worked well for both of us until we found PicMonkey.

The features PicMonkey offers are super robust and allow for a maximum amount of creativity. But best of all, the user interface is simple so that accessing all of its powerful features doesn't require hours of training and repeat use.

After we began using it, we realized that it was a great tool for all sorts of photo editing projects, from kid/family pics to Facebook cover photo and Instagram posts. All-in-all, it's a great piece of software and the app gives mobile function that is nearly as powerful as the online browser tool.

Cons: The biggest (and really, only) con to this software is that it's very difficult to work with more than one picture at a time. There were times I really wanted to overlay or compare or crop two different pictures for one project and the PicMonkey interface doesn't really make that possible. For the most part, this wasn't a huge problem for us, though occasionally I had to create one image, save it, then import it as a new image in order to add another layer of creative editing. It's not a huge problem most of the time, but it did come up from time-to-time.

Overall: PicMonkey is a great piece of software perfect for most of our photo editing needs. If you're looking for an inexpensive alternative that's easy to use and cost effective...this could be your solution!

Pros: I like about PicMonkey that it is anything but difficult to utilize notwithstanding for clients with zero information on photograph altering. You can overlook other expert editors with a gazillion choices that you will never require. PicMonkey has all that you truly requirement for altering your family or expert pictures. It doesn't utilize specialized names in their catches, rather they utilize normal language which I adore.

Cons: I don't care for the way that they used to have a free client record and now they don't. You have 7 days free preliminary and after that you have to get one of their choices or leave. The cost is just justified, despite all the trouble in the event that you intend to utilize it a great deal.

Overall: I use PicMonkey for straightforward content pictures to make something emerge pleasantly on a website page or even Facebook. I adore cites and other content on Photos and appreciate playing to make things eye getting... indeed, even only the content itself ,and I use PicMonkey for designing solicitations, declarations, and different printables. Before, if the webpage solidified or I lost web association, I'd lose my work. At the point when the center was presented, that issue was settled and that made PicMonkey my go to for my designing needs.

Pros: Personally, I had used PhotoShop and many other graphic tools. PicMonkey is one of them as well. I do find it a fantastic tool, second to Canva. (other more popular online graphic design tool) It also has got an affordable price point compared to Canva or Snappa. (another less popular graphic editing tool) If you don't want to invest too much on a heavy-duty program like PhotoShop that contains a lot of features, PicMonkey maybe a better alternative for you. It contains a slick and fast user interface to work with. It also has got less functions than PhotoShop, but it is easy to use and master the basics. Moreover, it offers great flexibility in terms of opening up images saving them from various storage media.

Cons: PicMonkey offers only a miserable 7-day trial. I was hoping they would give us a longer trial period. At the least, a 14-day trial will be so much better. Well, freebies always come with constraints, I guess. And also that banner advertisements in the software interface that can distract your attention if you are using a FREE account. I also discovered that there is no upload of custom logos or graphics option in the software. As you will experience, anything that is designed to give you great productivity and ease of use, will limit your customisation needs and constrain your workflows and ideas. E.g. I found that moving and placing images are constrained by the nodes (points) of the selected object or text. It is not so free and flexible compared to doing the same thing in PhotoShop though.

Overall: Overall, PicMonkey is still a useful and great tool. For the untrained in graphic arts, it is going to be easy, fast to pick up with given tutorials and tips readily available within PicMonkey. You can work anywhere and anytime on any browser on any OS platforms without having to worry about compatibility issues on software and hardware. It should be a smooth ride!

Pros: No download so it can be used without taking up PC space. The vast amount of editing features are great for business and personal use, kids love it too. There really isn't anything I couldn't do of fix. Import photos to make collages, add text, change backgrounds, fix photos or just jazz up an image. It was easy to learn unlike so many of the expensive editor software and the price is great.

Cons: There's limited help although some of the features have tips available as you use them.

Overall: I used PicMonkey for my business photos. I sold jewelry online so it was imperative my photos were spot on, showed the actual color and texture of the pieces, didn't have shadows or blemishes in the background. I could crop and add text such as sizes or special features. I can enhance a models lip or eye color and add sparkle or a multitude of other features available. Change the exposure, enhance certain colors, make black and white, resize and sharpen images and rotate photos.

This software does so much more than I used it for but it certainly covered all the bases when it came to what I needed. And the price is unbeatable when it comes to editing software.

Pros: I'm a graphic designer that is very comfortable using more powerful design tools (Adobe suite of programs), but sometimes this is overkill. In situations where I need to put together a relatively simple graphic for social media or etc, it's nice to be able to turn to a program that's simpler, more streamline, and very easy to use. That's where PicMonkey comes it. It's a feature rich, intuitive way to quickly create images and designs. They've got a great set of templates for a variety of projects, or you can go from scratch. It's cut a lot of time out of my work day, by allowing me to whip things up that just simply would take me longer using other tools.

Cons: Like many of these online design tools, if you're not careful it is easy to fall into the trap of churning out stuff that feels very over done. Templates are both a blessing and a curse. Spend enough time online and you'll be able to start picking out images that were created using PicMonkey, Canva, and others. I'd recommend starting with a template, but then really putting in the effort to make it unique. It'll take a bit longer, but still less time than going from scratch in Adobe Illustrator or etc, and will be uniquely yours.

On the template point, it can also feel a bit restrictive at times. There's a good selection with PicMonkey, but if you are needing to create something and there just isn't a template that is similar enough, you may have to calculate whether going from scratch is worth you're time, as editors like these are usually a bit more finicky to work with from scratch than something like the Adobe suite.

Pros: This software is so easy to use! I am a novice and I like to design for our women's group social media page. (I'm a novice but I have some skills!) There are plenty of templates to choose from that are easy to customize. The alignment hints and grids make it easy to position your text or graphic. There are lots of overlays, effects, and text choices to choose from and they keep adding to it. I have only contacted customer service one, a year or two ago, to see when they may be adding a certain feature. They got back with me the same day and assured me that the feature I was looking for was in the works. And it was! The Hub makes it so convenient to save your work and come back to it where you left off. With the app on my cell phone, I can simply retrieve my graphic to post anytime. PicMonkey is my go-to graphic design software!

Cons: I can't think of anything that I dislike about this software. However, when i owned a PC, the software did crash a few times. But that was probably my laptop and not the software. I've owned a MacBook Pro for several months now and I've had no issues.

Overall: I benefit from the ease of use, the time it takes to create a design, and the ease of retrieving the design from the app on my cell phone.

Pros: OK... so let's get this out in the open. Picmonkey is a free (or nominal cost) design software. Therefore, I don't think it's fair to expect Photoshop level capabilities! LOVE LOVE the new Beta functions, so many beautiful design elements that really add a layer of professionalism to the final product. I think this program helps you "think like a designer" for a really great outcome. I also love the pre-sized templates. This makes it much easier to use on social platforms.

Cons: My only real complaint is with frequent glitches. It does freeze when using some of the design tools quite frequently. Also.. once exported, I do think the image quality does get distorted a bit.

Overall: quite is an excellent additional design software- perfect for quick social media graphics. If you are an experienced graphic designer though, this is probably not the tool for you!

Pic Monkey is awesome!

Pros: PicMonkey is super helpful when I am at home editing photos and using them for my website. I am able to quickly login and crop, resize, or reshape an image without the hassle of a more complicated software like Adobe Photoshop. I have used PicMonkey countless times to help me with marketing and growing my business and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to quickly and easily edit their content.

Cons: The one thing I don't like about the software is that now they charge you per month to use their service. When I started using it, it was a free online service so when I found out there was a charge, it was hard for me to get accustomed to. I also don't like that there is no number to call for customer service. They responded to my email within a couple of days, but I was concerned that my billing questions would not be answered in a timely manner through email. They did prove me wrong, but it wasn't comforting knowing they may or may not respond.

Overall: My overall opinion of PicMonkey is positive! I have use the software hundreds of times over the course of the last couple of years and have found it very valuable to my business and marketing. As said above, I am able to quickly and easily edit my photos without the hassle of learning a difficult software. I also appreciate all of the presets that they have available; they allow me to fix the photo within seconds!!

Pros: I love all the fonts and templates that are readily available. I primarily use PicMonkey for designing invitations, announcements, and other printables. I have a Hub where I can save my work to come back to later which is great. There is a small amount of space which helps keep me accountable so I don't have tons of files saved that I don't need. There are themes of graphics that are available that ARE SO DANG CUTE. I can upload my own clip art or images to add to a design and it recognizes any fonts I have installed. The program is very user friendly with the newest rollout. I love that you can scroll away from the canvas and put things off to the side instead of deleting them altogether.

Cons: I like the price the least. The price with the newest rollout is quite costly for what I use it for. Previously it was less than $50/year and I could justify that.

Overall: I primarily use PicMonkey for designing invitations, announcements, and other printables. In the past, if the site froze or I lost internet connection, I'd lose my work. When the hub was introduced, that problem was resolved and that made PicMonkey my go to for my designing needs.

Pros: The editing software is not complicated to use. I can click through and work on a project without getting frustrated or confused like other more complicated software. I make create Pinterest images and edit images for my blog and website. I use the software so frequently that it was a no-brainer for me to upgrade to the paid membership though I did work for years on the free version. I like the extra editing tools I can use after having upgraded my membership. I run a small business and I am not sure I will need any other photo editing software!

Overall: They have templates available to help make infographics. I am sure someone with actual design experience would find the software limiting but for someone like me with no design experience, this is very helpful.

Pros: Ease of use. Lots of fonts and frames and everything can be easily resized, dragged and dropped. You can balance white color, move elements in layers back and forth and even sample colors with the eye dropper tool to match up your colors for fonts, design elements and photos.

Cons: Sometimes it glitches for me and nothing seems to work on the screen...but if I move my cursor to the top left of the screen and then back to the center it responds again. I also wish there were new updated templates in the social media template section. They haven't changed in a couple years.

Overall: I'm very comfortable with the platform now since I use it everyday. I find it is super quick to make a photo edit or collage for my blog posts. Good value for the price I pay.

Pros: I can't draw stick people but, I do a lot of writing and that writing often requires the use of images. I also maintain two web sites and they have a lot of images.

My needs are not that sophisticated but, every piece of photo editing software that I looked at was may more than what I needed and I couldn't even figure out how it worked.

PicMonkey is simple to use, does everything that I need, and has never not provided me with the tools to make any image look better!

Cons: Really, it's great! My only complaint is that I upgraded to the premium version of this program when the removed the ability to save edited documents from the free version. I can edit but not save? What's the point?

Now, the save function (they call it export), does not always work. You click the button and it does nothing, However, right below that they have a link to download the saved image (no difference than their export) and, it always works. Minor but annoying.

Overall: Great looking basic photo editing for people who know nothing about ... photo editing.

Pros: PicMonkey has a lot of features. They used to be a simpler program, but have added more and more features over time while still remaining fairly user friendly. It isn't a program you can use for professional-level photo manipulation, but it does give you everything you need to create photos for your website. It's a stepping stone - more features than simply photo manipulation apps, but not as complex as Photoshop.

Cons: They used to have a free version with access to some of the most basic features. Now, they have a free trial, but no free version. If you just need to do simple things like resizing and adding text to the photo, there are free apps that will get the job done.

Overall: I have been a long-time user. In the past few years, they have really amped up the features to allow for more photo customization. While this is a good thing, I think they are reaching a point where the tool is starting to get too complex. That said, I appreciate that they are listening to their customers and adding new features to make simple photo editing easier.

This tool has a wide range of features and functions for free, in addition you can make use of it through the social network Facebook and share the results with friends almost immediately.

In addition PicMonkey, among its features, offers the opportunity to create collage of images and even grants free templates of themes to integrate into the collage, and not only that, it also allows to combine effects on these templates. Granting a wide range of creative possibilities for the user in the process of creating / editing any image you want.

PicMonkey also allows the user to choose the format in which they want to save the image. For .jpg images it offers three types of quality to save the work, it also applies for .png images in case of requiring an image without a background.

Cons: PicMonkey does not have a temporary job saving option, so if the web page is recharged or there is a power cut, all the work done during the editing / creation of the image will be lost.

Pros: PicMonkey is a complete photo editing tool that is easy to use and after the latest update has taken care of all of my photo editing needs. Work saves automatically in case of unexpected shut down.

Cons: In order to use this service completely it was necessary to pay to use this program. The free version is basically useless.

Overall: PicMonkey is a complete photo editing tool with ease of access, minimal time to learn how to maximize learning how to create both edits and work with templates. PicMonkey has an amazing number of different effects all clearly laid out by category. Very complete editor. I would recommend purchasing this app as a fundamental tool for professional photo results.

I'm an avid, longtime fan and user of PicMonkey!

Pros: LOVE how you're constantly adding new features and fonts. Big fan of your touch-up editing features (CURVES saves me every time!) That alone makes this software worth every penny.

Cons: the freaking layers and overlay windows are always in the way! I wish it was easier to centre images - I can do it with text. Pictures or box overlays is a whole different story. I'm sure you get this lots. As a paying member (4yrs I think) I wish I had a bit more Hub room...

Overall: It's allowed me to blog/vlog void of being a computer genius or a photoshop pro! Very thankful I found this software. It's beginner friendly. You can literally plug and play...

Pros: I use picmonkey for everything! I have been using it forever (yearsssss). I love it for editing images, creating pngs, thumbnails etc. It can pretty much do anything you need it to do whether that be for social media or for a website. I have never needed to use photoshop because picmonkey does it all pretty much!

Cons: LOVE it, no cons at all. I'd say if I have to say something, maybe do a cheaper yearly subscription.

Overall: Picmonkey is awesome and I will continue to use it forever. Does most of all the advanced things you need it to that photoshop does if you really learn the ins and outs.

Pros: Picmonkey allows users to edit their photos with a variety of simple tools and an abundance of preset image manipulations. The tool categorizes its functions neatly. For example, it groups all of its cosmetic features in one category, all its filters and overlays in another category, and all of its simple editing tools in another. Overall, the program makes it easy to make pictures look great.

Cons: The worst thing about Picmonkey is that it costs money. While users used to be able to use most features for free, the company recently changed its business model, making users pay to use any of its features. While some may think /mo is worth the amazing features, others will turn to free alternatives, such as Pixlr express, to meet their photo editing needs.

Overall: The program offers many benefits, including facial simple editing tools, facial touch-ups, and quality filters and overlays.

Pros: I love how easy PicMonkey is to use, and how many different options there are at both the fee and paid levels. You can manipulate photos to create web-ready images for social media, which is what I do most often with it, and of course it's fun for making custom personal pics, too. The ability to change fonts and colors so precisely with little skill is great for a small business that is trying to establish and maintain branding.

Cons: There really is nothing to dislike - it is easy to use, gives many options for publication and storage, and while the premium features are worth it and really fun to apply, you can do a lot with the free version as well. It's a strong product with an entertaining interface and just enough cheekiness from the developers that it feels entertaining and relevant.

Overall: Love it and would highly recommend it to small business owners with minimal graphics skill who want to make high-impact images, especially for social media.

Pros: PicMonkey is like PhotoShop for those who don't want to spend time learning how to use PhotoShop. PicMonkey is so easy to use. I make advertisements, social media campaign graphics and photos, edit personal photos, make invitations and more using PicMonkey. People have commented that my PhotoShop skills are great yet I have never actually used PhotoShop and always use PicMonkey. The mobile app is great, too! I often use it to edit photos for social media when I am away from my computer.

Cons: The software keeps changing and things that I use often and love have been removed or moved. It gets frustrating to use something on the regular and then have it switched to something different and have to relocate it or relearn it. I know that the PicMonkey team is trying to better the software, but keeping the core items would make the software more ideal for users like me.

Pros: I love the ease with which I can gather key photos of my products into one single creative collage or "picture" to show my customers on eBay. Sometimes eBay's limit of 12 photos is not enough. The first photo that my potential customers will see are 1000 times more eye-catching than a single simple photo I would have posted in the past. In one single "picture" I can have several sample photos of my products being in action. It is really fun to use, there are many ways to arrange your photos and you can add all sorts of interesting fonts layered over your photos.

It is also a great photo editor. Besides the great quality of the program, I just really love how easy it is to use, especially since I have never been a tech savvy person! I took advantage of their one week free trial and almost immediately saw the huge potential benefit it gave me for my eBay listings. In my experience it has more than paid for itself.

Cons: I have not run into any issues yet to cause me to curse the service. I only use about 15% of the tools offered.

Overall: I am confident that the improvement in the photos in my eBay listings have contributed to my sales along with the CrazyLister software.

Pros: I started using PicMonkey before PicMonkey was cool! It's always been my go-to to edit/tweak my photos. For that reason, I keep going to it. PicMonkey is packed with great editing tools especially for photos.

The Hub addition has been huge making it easier to go back to old designs and work from a copy.

Fun extras that my other go-to Canva doesn't have BUT I do use both to compliment my work.

Cons: No search!!! I can't understand why there is no way to search. Since I've used it for so long, I know where some elements are but only after scrolling and scrolling.

Also think it's taking them too long to release more effects that were available on the older version.

And, the customer service is horrible as in very little chance anyone will get back with you. That needs to really change.

Pros: I love using Picmonkey to edit photos. I am not a professional graphic artist, but the images I am able to get from using Picmonkey editing tools are incredible. I have tried using Adobe Photoshop many times and leave frustrated everytime... the learning curve is too steep. Picmonkey has simple, yet effective tools that are easy to use. I highly recommend trying Picmonkey!

Cons: Picmonkey has recently gone through an upgrade and some of the features from the old version haven't made it into the new version yet. But I have found they are getting the new version more completed and I haven't had any trouble using it. I am a happy Picmonkey user.

Overall: I love the easy editing tools for my photographs. I look like a much better photographer with these simple to use editing tools than I really am. I highly recommend using Picmonkey.

Pros: This awesome software "Picmonkey"well developed photo editing software which allows users to use with easy methods.We can manipulate images with our own creativity . Those tools are doing its functions neatly. .I already made some online freelance works using this software. i did some collage works and some brochure designs using some photo manipulation technique.Overall i suggest this software for all professionals and newcomers.

Cons: Work load decreases but cost increased. Picmonkey is that it costs money. we should pay cash for using any of its features. if this software allows some good features for free then it will be a good thing .

Overall: Picmonkey helped me to earn some money.While i am working for urgently delivering Freelance works, i used this software for a model photography touch up work . I felt awsome.

Pros: I was one of the first to jump on board when PicMonkey launched a few years ago. The platform was super easy to use. Instead of relying on some of my heavier software to create graphics for blog and social media posts, I could easily hop on PicMonkey and whip something up quickly. The fonts where great and I loved that I could pull fonts from my hard drive to keep everything branded. Since I wasn't replacing my other design software, I used the free version of PicMonkey. I figured allowing the ads at the bottom of the screen was a nice trade off.

Overall: PicMonkey is a great product and was one of my "go-to's" when they first launched. Unfortunately, I don't use it regularly enough to pay a monthly fee, but it would be a great choice for those who need to create simple graphics on a regular basis.

Pros: I use PicMonkey every day to quickly and easily resize photos and create social media graphics. It has saved me a ton of time and frustration, compared to using more complicated photo editing programs, and the results are always clean and professional. There's almost no learning curve, as every step is clear and intuitive.

Cons: I can't think of anything negative to say - it's awesome!

Overall: PicMonkey is clever, unintimidating and easy to use. Even if you have zero photo-editing experience, you can still get high-quality, professional results in a snap. Templates and tutorials are relevant and on-trend.

Would recommend to EVERYONE!

Cons: It has all the functionality I need. However, one feature that would be awesome is being able to apply filters to select areas, rather than the entire image.

Overall: Easy and efficient photo editing without needing to use Photoshop.

Pros: This is my favourite photo editing and design software. I love that it's offering so many different ways to enhance and even transform a boring photo into a spectacular one. I really get creative and enjoy playing with the awesome features, templates and powerful touch-up tools. Re-editability, storage, collections, layers, custom effects, an entire library of customizable templates crafted by pros, a mobile app for iPads and phones, curved text, and alignment grids and more. It's easy to work with. Very reasonable priced and worth it at least 100 the price.

Cons: I truly can't find anything to complain about. I am a fan of this software. The cost of membership is so much lower than Photoshop for instance, which is unbelievable.

Overall: I easily can create amazing visuals for Face Book, Instagram, Pinterest, Youtube using Pic Monkeys templates, touch up any photo and make it into amazing one.

Pros: The ease of dragging and dumping of things and also there are some forms ready to use to facilitate the user to get the desired shape and then I did not find it difficult to use, and also when the conservation of the image did not take a lot of time and give any of the choices in the selection of images to be saved and also contains some of the Filters and effects are ready and it gives easy to deal with the site, unlike some programs and other sites

Cons: There are some things that I did not like, which are not many, which is that when opening the site is sometimes slow in the download and can stop responding because of the pressure on the servers and the possibilities loaded on it and also during the conservation can stop responding and cause a malfunction in the browser closed browser It does not return to work again, but everything is swept away as it was at the beginning

Overall: In general, the site is very useful for those who have problems with the programs for editing images because it is easy to experience the amendment to the images

Pros: PicMonkey has a ton of features, and is much easier to use and navigate than other editing software I have tried. Every element of the photo can be adjusted and perfected. My photos always look professionally done, and I love that they can be saved in a high quality file size. The ability to create and save my own filter/preset also makes working through large sets of photos a breeze.

Cons: The only negative I have encountered is the occasional crash of the site while working. A quick software restart usually solves the problem.

Overall: This software provides quick and easy, professional looking photo editing. I edit a large number of photos every month, and this allows me to complete the work with speed and quality.

Easy to use and makes you feel like a professional.

Pros: Picmonkey has a free trial version, with which you can use many of its tools to test its operation,

then you have to cancel a subscription but it's really worth it since this software is used online and

therefore does not occupy space or interfere with the operation of the computer. This software

has numerous image editing tools that allow not only adding texts or images but to correct

wrinkles, change the tone of eyes and skin, whiten teeth, etc. It is very easy to use and the final

products can be downloaded in various available formats.

Cons: Nowadays this type of applications usually includes something essential: the option to import into

social networks, Picmonkey does not allow this to be done, so time is lost downloading the image

to the computer and then loading it on social networks in a traditional way. In addition, it does not

yet have any application to download it to phones, so it is a bit annoying to use it through the

browser.

Overall: This software was one of the first I tried when I was looking for simple ways to edit photos; the

truth is very intuitive and super practical to edit all kinds of images. It offers many tools to create

content and although you have to register on the site to use any of its versions does not merit

further complication, I recommend it and I think it is excellent to use it online because my

computer is quite slow to use some programs of this style.

Pros: I've been using PicMonkey for YEARS, back when it was still Picnik. I love how easy this editing program is to use! I'm super familiar with Adobe products (love them) and still use PicMonkey over photoshop when editing a picture because it's so simple and straightforward. I love that you can auto settings or you can adjust them yourself.

Cons: PicMonkey does seem to crash on me quite a bit, which is very frustrating and sometimes it won't save/export my edited photos so I have to manually right click and save them, which is quite annoying.

Overall: Overall it's a great product that I definitely recommend to anyone. It's great for beginners and seasoned professionals.

Pros: This is a seriously simple platform for creating some nice visuals on web. I like all the features that it gives for free: photo filtering, some "photo shopping", etc. If you want to touch up a photo or enhance a photo without getting crazy into Adobe Photoshop or Indesign or Illustrator, give this web-based service a try and see if it meets your needs.

Cons: Each time I return to PicMonkey, there are fewer features available to the free users. I work in education, and teachers just don't have the money to spend on this kind of thing, so if PicMonkey keeps taking away features from the free version, I probably won't recommend them to my colleagues as much.

Pros: PicMonkey is really easy to use for people trying to do basic editing. Their options for text, frames, and sizing are all really helpful and relevant. Their quick fix tool for color saturation and clarity also make it really easy to get a good picture quality based on their recommendations.

Cons: As with any "free" product, PicMonkey as begun to add in ways for their users to pay for their tool which makes sense however sometimes it feels like a very nickle and dime approach. They also recently changed your ability to save/download a picture based on whether you have an account with them which can be cumbersome.

Pros: Very easy to use and great editing features made it a great app when we used it a lot, until they started charging a monthly fee.

Cons: Loved Picnik (sp?) Used Picasa before that and loved picnik, then google bought it and got rid of all of it. PicMonkey started and was free for a long time, now they charge. The features are cool, if you use it frequently, but yet another monthly fee for when you don't use it enough adds up esp for small companies and individuals. between phone editing tools and canva you can do most of the same now.

Overall: Would rather just pay as needed, or keep the limited but free feature set like they used to!!!!

Pros: I love about PicMonkey that it is very easy to use even for users with zero knowledge on photo editing. You can forget other professional editors with a gazillion options that you will never need. PicMonkey has everything you really need for editing your family or professional pictures. It doesn't use technical names in their buttons, instead they use common language which I love.

Cons: I don't like the fact that they used to have a free user account and now they don't. You have 7 days free trial and after that you need to buy one of their options or leave. The price is only worth it if you mean to use it a lot.

Overall: My experience with PicMonkey is very good. I use it when I need to edit a big amount of pictures, then I pay one month fee and do them all during that month. But it is not something I pay regularly every month.

Pros: A few years ago, when I first started using PicMonkey, it was the best option I could find for free, online image editing. PicMonkey lets you easily touch up, edit, and format images for just about any use you can imagine. It gives lots of options for color editing and filters especially, making it easy to produce Instagram-ready images.

Cons: Now that Canva is available, I don't really use PicMonkey anymore: compared to Canva, PicMonkey is clunky and slow, and it's become more and more difficult to use without getting through a paywall. Canva lets you do way more things to your images for free, and it organizes your work more easily. It feels like PicMonkey hasn't been keeping up with the times and updating its functionality as the internet has changed, especially as the internet becomes more image-heavy.

Overall: Every once in a while, I still use PicMonkey, especially if I'm in a hurry and just need to crop a photo. Overall, I'd look elsewhere for more robust image editing.
