PicMonkey for the Holidays

I love, love, love (did I mention love;) PicMonkey! I am not known for taking great pictures and I am really lazy so I am not spending a ton of time on photo editing them either! But when I went to TypeA this year I heard about PicMonkey.  I didn’t want to spend money on a fancy photo editor. Well, PicMonkey is free and super easy to use! I immediately came home and started playing with it!

My Facebook cover collage for NerdFamily Food that I made in a minute!!!

I have used it a ton to make graphics for posts, graphic labels, the like! But in addition to all the normal photo editor tools PicMonkey also has great holiday effects and filters. You can layer them onto each other and build something new or just edit an existing profile picture for holiday fun.

It is a super simple process.

Open the initial profile picture in PicMonkey

I clicked on the snowflake and picked the winter theme. Then added frost effect.

Then I picked the flakery overlay and placed 2 snowflakes.

Then I added a single snowman;). All done, that easy!!!

It is that easy!!! Now I have a jaunty holiday profile picture!!! PicMonkey really is that easy to use!!! And you don’t just have to use the effects on profile pictures. Many people have used the Winterland effects to make other fabulous projects (the ideas of which I may copy;) and they are over on Pinterest! Check them out too.

Have you tried it yet? Go give it a try and then share a link to your finished project so I can see!!!
