“Helping you take control of your artistic business”

I’m talking about Picmonkey today. Now I know many of my readers are professional designers; they may laugh when they hear Picmonkey being used for design projects but don’t be fooled into thinking you can’t put together a cool image all inside the FREE Picmonkey software.

Let’s start off with how I first became interested in Picmonkey.

MY DAUGHTER

My daughter is 11 years old, a YouTuber and ocassional blogger (she has school) and she puts together some pretty awesome YouTube thumbnails all in the free Picmonkey software.
My daughter sees me working on projects in Photoshop everyday and from time to time she used to come to me to help her cut things out but since she’s mastered the skill in Picmonkey, I am now redundant. Here’s an example of a recent project we worked on together.

I took photos of her for her YouTube header and she cut them out in Picmonkey and added them to a nice bright background along with some infographics. Cool, no?

SEE HOW I USED PICMONKEY

So I decided I’d give it a go myself and was pleasantly surprised with what I could achieve. Below is a selection of images I used to put together a simple post for Instagram. I simply opened them up in Picmonkey and cut them out and put them together on a pretty watercolor background. It’s that easy!

Here’s the finished piece which I added a message to:

DO YOU WANT TO KNOW HOW TO DO THIS IN 10 MINUTES?

I wanted to share this with others that are maybe bloggers or business owners that need to create their own graphics from time to time but don’t want to invest in expensive software like Photoshop. If you know me, you know that I like to teach things so this was the perfect opportunity to do that.

I have created a 10 minute class which will walk you through how to cut stuff out in Pickmonkey like a pro! check out the video below:
