PicMonkey.com is a Wonderful Place to Hang Out! {Example #1}

Are you sad to see Picnik(dot)com leave? It had so many great digital photo effects for free, and for a small fee, enhanced membership.  WELL... Cheer up!  PicMonkey.com is here to save you!  I have been playing around a bit and am posting a cool picture of none other than... Peanut. :)

Peanut was the driver in this shot.  From the Basic Edit's Menu,  I chose the Crop feature to cut out some of the bottom which was showing the center cup holders, and cut off some of the right side to place him in a more flattering position.  Then I used the Clone feature to "delete" the papers in the side-door-pocket.  I also used Cloning to work on his eyes a bit -taking some of the glare out.  I zoomed way in to work on his eyes using my mouse wheel.

From the Effect's Menu, Camera Look, I chose "Daguerreotype." Then I added "Brady" and "Shiro" effects before saving.

The site is set up with the Categories listed on the left.  Top left is the Category by title, and side left is Category by icon.  Basic Edit = small molecule structure.  Effects = science flask. Textures = square grid turned on point.   There are of course, MANY MORE features to peruse.

I will continue posting pics this week as examples of what this site can do for you.  I will try and show some practical uses for enhancing photos, not just the artsy effects that look so good on Peanut. :) 

P.S. It is great to be back!! Sorry I have been away so long. ;)

  1. I was so bummed to say goodbye to Picnic, but I'm warming up to Picmonkey and almost like it as much. Love your pics. of little Peanut, so cute!

  2. I am definitely warming up as well. I have been staying up way too late! :) I like to use the "lashes" on my dog pics too.

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. To get a complement from someone who is as talented as you obviously are means a lot. Keep shooting great photos.

  4. Love your dogs! I have a 5 1/2 lb. chihuahua that would love to play with Peanut!

  5. I love picmonkey too! Your peanut is just too cute!!

  6. Peanut could be related to Bella & Lacie! If you look to the right, you can see that Peanut loves the beach too. No fancy eye wear for my handsome love though. :)


Comments are so much fun! Thanks for stopping by :)
