I’m the first to admit I have a lot to learn about photography. That said,I like to take pictures, capture moments, then use the heck out of PicMonkey to edit them. I’m sure most have heard of it, but if you haven’t, it is the best. Pic Monkey is a free online photo editing site that you can spend hours playing with your pictures. There is the option to pay for some upgraded features, but I’m still going the freebie route.
I took some pictures of the lilies on the side of my house the other day. I thought I’d share a few of the features I used in Pic Monkey with you.
Starting from the beginning, I took this picture of a yellow lily and what you see is totally unedited.
I cropped it…and actually cropped it again, but I didn’t save it.
I then chose the Frames feature, added an outer color, an inner color and rounded the corners. And then added a light trails feature. A little bit artsy and I like it.
Next, the pink lily. I was still playing with frames and colors. Here’s a few different looks.
Last and my most favorite is the white lily. First, the blooms are big and beautiful this year.
I took several of the white lily and added different effects.
The original I was working with looked like this.
Then I added a light trail effect…
and then a burst of light…
and then a water effect…
I think I want to print and frame the blue water effect.
What do you think? If you haven’t already, will you be trying Pic Monkey soon?
