Photo Editing Fun with PicMonkey

I'm so sorry it's been so long since my last post. I've been busy playing with new {stuff}. I just don't have anything I can share with you yet.

I did get to spend the evening with a really cute little boy last week. Uriah borrowed my camera to take a picture of his dad (my son Andy). It was a little blurry but a fun photo so I thought I would have some fun playing with different effects in PicMonkey.

Here's the original photo snapped by Uriah (I've cropped it and added a dark edge already):

Some of my favorite effects:

B&W with an area of color


light ray- this one reminds me of Dr. Who for some reason

can't remember what this one was called, but I really like it :)

colorful bokeh overlay

I made up a collage of all the different effects together:

I'm working on how I can use this in a dad's day gift for Andy.

I would encourage you to check out PicMonkey. Even if all you ever use it for is to resize your card photos I think you will love it!

thanks for stopping by!



  1. That's just too funny! I bet he'll love it, and so will Uriah.

  2. Oh, how fun, Nancy! Can't wait to see what you come up with for Andy!

  3. A budding photographer in the making! I love PicMonkey and what you've done here is such fun.

  4. Looks like great fun - thanks for the link. So glad you are having some family fun and don't worry about blogging!

  5. How interesting! I'm going to have to check out PicMonkey since I'm not very happy with the program on my new computer. Thanks for the info, Nancy, & for your sweet comment!


Thanks for your comments, I love hearing from you!
