Hey everyone! I know I’ve made you all wait a while, but I finally have an overview of my PicMonkey presentation from Healthy Living Summit put together for you all! Since I only had 15 minutes to present, I decided to talk about the basics of PicMonkey and give people some ideas of what they can do for their personal photos as well as for their blogs.

Today I’m just going to share what I use PicMonkey the most for, and then we’ll move on to other topics on another day. It’s much harder to explain through a blog rather than showing it in person!

First, here are several examples of ways I’ve used PicMonkey:

So what do I use PicMonkey the most for? Fixing images. Every time I open up an image in PicMonkey I do these two things:

1. Auto Adjust (or adjust it myself) and

2. Color Boost.

First, select your photo from your files to edit in PicMonkey. You can only edit one photo at a time, but you can have PicMonkeyopen in several tabs at the same time.

Next, choose auto-adjust. For about 80% of my pictures, auto-adjust improves the image.

Sometimes I dislike what auto-adjust does, so I either leave the image how it was, or adjust it myself.

The second thing that I often do to my photos is a color boost. For most, I move the strength very low, since warm colors are affected more greatly and look neon if you leave the strength too high.

I find this effect most helpful when it comes to landscape photos. You know how you look out at something beautiful, take a picture and then realize the picture just didn’t capture what you saw in real life? Well, it occurs all the time when I’m using my iPhone camera, so the color boost is a great tool to get the picture back to what you saw yourself.

It’s a slight change, but it makes a difference, especially when you knew how the colors originally looked.

So there you have it! I do this to almost all my blog pictures (unless I don’t have time) and to most of my personal pictures now as well.

My biggest piece of advice when using PicMonkey is to just play around with it and experiment with all of the options. There are so many things you can do! Next week I’ll do a demonstration on how to make graphics!

 

Do you ever adjust photos? What do you use?

Have you used PicMonkey?

Is there anything you want to know how to do? Anything blog-related! (or life related, I guess… haha).
