Let me start off by saying I am not getting paid at all to write this post. I just want to share this information with those of you who (like me!) have a hard time with Photoshop and other online photo editors. Editing your photos to make them look fantastic doesn’t have to be hard and it doesn’t have to cost you a thing! I use PicMonkey.com almost every day- it offers an easy way to edit photos. Have you heard of it?

How to Access ALL Your Fonts. You are no longer limited to the fonts on this website- you can literally access every font on your computer!
The Eyedropper Tool. The eyedropper tool lets you pick any color from your image, so you can coordinate colors, get specific hex values, and find that just-right shade of any color.
Using the Clone Tool. Cloning lets you paint over part of your photo by copying another part of the photo. I used it ALL. THE. TIME.
How to Make an Image Come Through Text. You’ve probably heard it described several ways: Image as font. Make an image in the shape of letters. Put see-through text over your image. Place an image inside of text. PicMonkey calls it a text mask, and it is super easy to learn!
Dodge and Burn. Take complete control of your lighting making a photo lighter in areas and darker in others.
