PicMonkey has come out with a lot of new features, including “spring” overlays as well as something that I’m really excited about: their new light effects!

I love the effects that PicMonkey has available, many of which I used in my “What’s in My Make Up Bag” post to make the images more fun. Sometimes they’re subtle, and other times not so much, but I love the artsy factor.

To find the new light effects, once you’ve opened a photo, click on the effects icon and then scroll down a bit until you see them:


The five new effects are Bokeh, Radiance, Lens Flare, Sunglow and Spotlight. The best thing to do is just play around with them a bit to see what you like and when you might use it.

Here is an example of me messing around with a couple on a picture I took from Colorado.

First I used Bokeh. I changed the shape, and then also changed Blur to Glowy. After that I clicked on the paintbrush icon and chose to use the brush to remove the effect from the lower part of the picture, so that the effect was only in the sky.


I also tried out the lens flare:


And then I removed the glare and tried out sunglow, moving the sun down to the right side and lessening the size just a bit:


See how these effects can make the picture look so much different? I’m really glad they added these, I think they’re a lot of fun.

When I first messed around with them, I used my favorite subject: MOLLY! Here are some of my favorites:








Isn’t she beautiful? Haha love her. Please feel free to e-mail me or ask me questions in the comments if you’d like to know anything more about picmonkey, I love sharing and I’m a huge fan of the site!


Do you like to edit photos?


What’s your favorite subject to photograph?
