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: 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: 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!

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 is a practical tool, simple and intuitive in its functions, ideal for the new user who wants to immerse themselves in image editing. 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.

Even this tool provides varied basic and quality functionalities for photo editing, some examples are skin filters and the option to eliminate red eyes.

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.

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: 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 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 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.

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: I really love the ease of use that PicMonkey offers. It takes complicated Photoshop commands and processes and simplifies them with easy to understand labels. One label may contain several steps from other photo editing software. One click is all you need to perfect your images. Editing hundreds of images at a time can get extremely repetitive and time-consuming. I've never edited images more quickly than I have with PicMonkey. It is also fantastic for making logos and printed materials!

Cons: Nothing. I wish that it were free, of course, but I recognize that it is worth its subscription fee.

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: 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: One of the only reasons I still use(d) PicMonkey was the ability to quickly create a collage of photos and add some filters, text, stickers. The low subscription cost was attractive, and I figured if it saved me additional formatting time it would take to use PhotoShop, it would be worth the deal. It's done the trick for the past few years.

Cons: The new BETA platform is a nightmare. PicMonkey had already been circumvented by other competitors offers free and easy design solutions like Canva, that allowed you to save and store your designs in the cloud. PicMonkey caught on and it trying to create a "hub" for design storage and a more sophisticated design platform, but in turn, they butchered what was once a simple and easy tool worthy of a low cost subscription in favor of cut rate imitator of more sophisticated platform. I won't be renewing when my subscription expires in January.

Overall: PicMonkey was one of the first free design editors I stumbled upon and I really liked it for the simple tasks I needed complete. I even sprung for the annual subscription just to have additional features. For a while, I would say it was the best of it's kind. However, new competition sprung up, and in an attempt to pivot to be more comprehensive, I feel that PicMonkey lost touch with why customers were using it in the first place. Others may appreciate the added changes, and those are people who are simply unaware that there are better choices elsewhere. Again, these changes are relatively recent, as PicMonkey's new iterations are still in beta testing, and maybe in the end it will be a more superior product than I'm giving it credit for. I just abide by the old saying "It's better to be a first rate version of yourself than a second rate version of someone else."

Pros: For what it costs, PicMonkey really delivers as far as what you can do with it and photo editing. I would go so far as to title it as an amateur photoshop program. You can do all of the basic capabilities of Photoshop at a much cheaper price and you can even save your finished work in a folder to reconstruct at a later time. Great for work!

Cons: It took me a bit of time to truly feel like I could navigate it to the best of my ability. Now that I have the hang of it it isn't difficult but it definitely can be confusing at first.

Pros: I reccomend this software for people who are into photography but don't either want to spend the money on Adobe or have the time to learn. Everything is pretty straight forward. I started using this software in High School when I worked for the yearbook. It was easy to use and cheap. Eventually I started using it when I wanted to edit a nice photo every once in a while. The filters make it extremely easy and makes the creative experience so much more fun

Cons: I think the touch up options can use a little work but other than that I love it.

Pros: It's super easy and simple to edit images and add fun graphics to images. They recently added templates which makes it even nicer to use on the go. My favorite feature is being able to add overlays to text for a glitter effect which I can't do in other online photo editor software.

Cons: Since transitioning from a free platform with the option to get a membership to a membership only platform it is something I don't find to be worth the price. I can easily edit with other platforms that have a free feature that include many more templates, graphics, and features.

With pic Monkey I can develop my creativity.

Pros: I think this application is very good, with it I can edit and retouch photos, adding text, frames, changing color, cutting or resizing the image, I can also make collage and even beautiful designs for cards and I love that I can connect my account with facebook.

Cons: You have a free trial, but you must have an option to pay and it is very cumbersome that process of registration of credit card or paypal account, everything else I liked, it was worth the effort of the installation.

Pros: Very easy to use, was able to start working with images right away. Exports as high quality images.

Cons: I don't have anything negative to say about PicMonkey. It does everything I was looking for a program to do, and more!

Overall: I use PicMonkey to edit and create images for our website, digital marketing, and more. Photoshop was too expensive and I didn't have the time to learn how to use it. PicMonkey is very affordable, and super easy to learn how to do all the edits and corrections I needed on my product photography, lifestyle images, collage images, and marketing pics. The layer feature works great for resizing product images to be consistent in size.

I also use PicMonkey personally to edit images for Instagram and Facebook. There are fun effects that can be added, and adding text is super easy.

LOVE using Pic Monkey. Without a doubt one of the top 5 tools my company uses.

Pros: This makes it so easy to add your own twist on public domain images and stand apart from the rest online. We've used it to create images for blog and social media posts. I especially like that the filters and overlays are adjustable so that you can customize it to your exact specifications.

Cons: One feature that I wish this included is a background eraser. The crop is nice, but having the ability to erase the background would be tremendously helpful when trying to isolate objects for overlays and such.

Pros: So easy to use whether editing photos, creating graphics projects without having to hire a professional - yet just as good results. Handy tutorials for common uses and building more advanced skills which would be daunting to experiment with in photoshop.

Cons: I like it - if I had one dislike it would be the monkey logo and animation, but hardly a big deal given the other pluses.

Overall: I've used it for editing photos for several years for website and social media, brochures and it's so much easier than photoshop or describing to a designer what I need. Fairly cost effective too.

For the non graphic designer Pic Monkey is perfect to get the basics of editing complete.

Pros: I love the fact that it's super easy to use without having to be a professional photographer or graphic designer. I love using this product to create posters, invites and ads for business and love using it for personal projects as well.

Cons: I think it can at times feel a little constricting on what you can do and the options rarely change or alter. You end up using the same items over and over again with little changes over the year. I've used this product for the last 3 years and it's pretty much stayed the same. Consistent but little improvements that reflect the changing of popular editing looks going on in the industry.

Overall: Being able to edit photos and create fun posters, promos or Facebook headers is super beneficial for a small business owner or employee. You are able to do a lot with a little and make the best of what this software has to offer. No professional editing skills needed which is awesome.

Cons: It was cool to give the new version a try, however overlays were not an option when we received notice of the beta testing ..overlays are something we use a lot of in PicMonkey.

Overall: PicMonkey gives you the ability to create graphics with little effort and a great deal of creativity.

Pros: PicMonkey is a unique and incomparable software, it has so many options and it is so simple to use that it would allow me to catalog it as perfect. It is incredible that a program offers so many editing options for free. As you learn to use the program you can achieve photographic editions like those of a professional.

Cons: I have no complaints about the software, so far it has worked perfectly, I just hope that they keep a continuous update or that they just surprise me with something wonderful.

Overall: PicMonkey has become an ally when it comes to surprising friends with beautiful montages or simply using photography as a means of expression.

I can make clipping for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest with prefabricated sizes,

Pros: I've been using PicMonkey ever since its early years and I have continued to use them from then on. Not only does it have filters available, it also touch-up features as well as overlays and cliparts. The interface is easy to look at and is even easier to use. It even has collage-making options and could be saved into different file types. Whenever I need to make any photo look more dramatic, I'll be typing the PicMonkey's URL before anyone could say "Daguerrotype".

Cons: Even the trial period requires us to add a credit card, which could be asked for if we plan to avail of the Premium package.

Overall: Creating images with the right effect has become way easier! All you have to do is click on which effect you like, and you have the option to choose the percentage of the effect that you want on your images.

Pros: It is a very effective online tool that allows you to edit and create incredible visual content. It has a friendly interface, is very easy to use and its learning curve is really short. Picmonkey offers a large number of tools for editing and photo retouching, it also has a section of filters and effects for photographs. Another of its advantages is that it allows you to add text and graphic elements to the images simply by clicking and dragged to the place of your preference.

Cons: When saving the final result in our computer, the image quality decreases, so I consider that picmonkey is not a tool for professional use. It is only useful and practical to edit simple photos that do not require a professional appearance.

Overall: My experience has been good. I use picmonkey to make simple and quick photo retouching, I have also used their text tools to create simple web content. It is a very useful and practical tool that saves time when editing photographs.

PicMonkey is a fun way for personal or business use.

Pros: One of the things I like most about this photo editor is how easy it is to use, seriously the interface is super friendly and easy to use, it is summarized to a sidebar where all the tools for editing are of the resource and also redo or undo the changes made before, also has a wide range of filters for the photos that we are editing and retouching details of them, is a very complete editor to be online, and the truth is that one can achieve very good tweaks with the, professional jobs.

Cons: Honestly there is only one thing that I do not like and is that despite being a free application, you have many tools that you need to pay to use them.

Overall: This software has served me on many occasions mainly because I am a graphic designer and photo editing tools is something totally inescapable, with Picmonkey I have achieved professional results and in a short time besides that being so simple to use makes the experience with the application be excellent, in my opinion it is highly recommended and much more when there is no knowledge so high in editing photos or resources.

Cons: Adding custom fonts and images are sometimes a hassle on Picmonkey. I think it is more formatted to use thier given imagery, but this is not always ideal.

Pros: I love the quality of picmonkey which was free at the time I first discovered it, however since they won't let you save photos with their site anymore it's a little less likely I'll be using it now unless I restart my membership.

Cons: I had a membership at one point but I found I was getting double charged and would have to contact customer service to get it figured out. It was a slight annoyance but was always handled. I think they should go back to having a free option, and paying option. I understand it's business but it's hard to offer some features free and then suddenly take even the free ones away.

Cons: Some of their frames, fonts, adjustments for portraits and other accessories can only be used in the paid version.

Overall: PicMonkey is a photo editor with a lot of tools, they are not just filters that you add to the photos, it is much more than that and being a kitten has helped me in the editing of online photographs.

Pros: The best thing I like about this software is that picmonkey is easy to use and upload a photo to edit certain things.

Cons: The least thing I like about this software is not any modern filters like instagram or VSCO cam has. I think that picmonkey could step up their game when it comes to the filter category.

Overall: My experience with PicMonkey hasn't been bad but it could be better if there were more filters like instagram and other "modern" picture editing apps.

Pros: I really like this software to edit photos. It has a lot of touch up options and filters for the price. I like all the editing options. I've been using this for a few years for simple editing. I like that you can use a filter and then soften how much it is applied. I even have the app! It has most of the functionality.

Cons: There could be a few more filters. Sometimes I feel like the filters make the photos look too extra. Orton is my favorite. It takes a little getting used to how to customize it.

Overall: Fabulous product! Easy to use. Love the app. Reasonably priced.

Pros: Easy to use! Interface is very intuitive and clean, and all the features that matter are there so anyone can use it. It's perfect for clients that don't have software on their computer to edit photos for their site. There's also photo fix tools like blemish editor for instance, and there is 'hub storage'! It's inexpensive, and there's even a mobile app :)

Cons: I don't like that their pricing structure is not easy to find, but at least it's inexpensive. Honestly I can't really think of anything else I don't like about it.

Pros: Software is somewhat easy to use. Picture editing is all web-based thus there is nothing to download which is a plus. Various editing features that can quickly transform a picture in a matter of seconds.

Cons: While the software is somewhat easy, it would be nice to have some tutorials for each feature that could quickly outline the intent and how to use it. Also, the process to upload a picture is very frustrating. One has to dig into your Computer's file folder directory to find the picture you want to edit each time. Would be a lot easier if there was a drag and drop feature when you want to choose the picture to edit. Or at least have the system remember the last file directory you picked so that you don't have to waste time to looking for it over and over again.

Overall: Quick and easy picture editing

Pros: Ease of navigation. PicMonkey has always been an easy-to-use offering with a fairly straightforward interface. The fact that the mobile app performs very well is a bonus for me, but it is not something I use that often.

Cons: For a while, PicMonkey was my go-to choice for image editing for clients. Over time however while PicMonkey has seemed to almost stand still (except on pricing) alternatives such as Canva or even a free to use like iPiccy have overtaken it for me because they offer much more (and actually for less)

Overall: This is a decent choice for very basic image editing, especially on mobile. However, Canva offers a great deal more if you are trying to create a more complicated branded graphic.

Cons: I had a very hard time figuring out how to upload images and add text. But the worst was that it didn't have a way to create a collage the size of a bookmark, which was my hope.

Overall: I took the free trial to try to play with it to see if it would be something I could use and I spent several hours creating different options and none of them were close to what I needed. I was frustrated because I'm not very good at this stuff but even with some assistance from my techie son and husband there was nothing to meet my need.

Pros: I discovered PicMonkey a long time ago when I didn't have any photo editing skills or programs. It was so easy and when I first used it, it didn't require a sign-in. It's changed a lot since then!

Cons: Honestly, for a free editor, it's decent for non-photographers/editors. The only thing I didn't like was that when I first started using it, almost all the features were free, but over the next few years, they required email memberships (whether you paid or not), and they made a lot fewer features free. Still good, though.

Overall: I loved it! Now that I have Photoshop, I don't need it, but sometimes it's nice to just get on and edit one quick photo (it's SUPER fast to do quick edits).

Pros: It's a very simple and intuitive software that anyone can use. You can make professional images without costly graphic design software or extensive graphic design training.

Cons: Picmonkey appears to have done away with their free platform which is a shame. It allows you to create a graphic, but prompts you to purchase the subscription to actually download what you've made which to me isn't very honest or forthcoming. I also have started using other options more due to the site crashing more frequently than not.

Overall: Easy graphic design equates to time and money saved. Ease of use and templates allow for further time being saved along with ease of brand consistency.

Pros: This is another great program I suggest to my clients all the time! It is really easy to use to make graphics. If you do not have the money to invest in larger and more expensive programs, and you need graphics for pretty much any reason -- this is the program to use. You don't need to download it to your computer, you can use it straight from your Google, Bing, etc.

Cons: I really can not say anything negative. I have never had any issues whatsoever!

Overall: Overall, all I have to say are positive remarks and I would definitely suggest this for any small business owners who needed graphics.

Pros: The software is pretty easy to pickup and has a lot of editing features that are easy to use. Tons of templates to choose from or you can start with a blank canvas. You can also edit photos, which is really nice. I like that there is a mobile app so you can create things on your phone. I also like that there is a 7 day free trial. The pricing isn't bad, either, if you decide to purchase a subscription.

Cons: I kind of wish there was a free version available, but the pricing isn't too bad. You can pay monthly, which is nice.
