Tried It Tuesday {PicMonkey}

Happy Tuesday! I think I can...I think I can! We are in the home stretch before Christmas break and I always wonder at this time of the year how I will get everything done before Christmas. It didn't help matters that the stomach bug has gone through our house since Thursday. My daughter was home Friday and I was home today. Yuck! Hopefully, we will all be healthy now for the holidays. :)
Tried It Tuesday will be new once a month, opening on the second Tuesday of each month (like TWOSDAY).
Feel free to link up as many times as you would like during the month!

Now It's Time for Tried It Tuesday! 
What have you tried at school or home?
If you've never linked up with Tried It Tuesday, just link up any idea school or home related and what worked or didn't work. Simple! 
My Tried It:
Pic Monkey
My adorable younger sister (blogger at Confessions of a MatchiN'ista) was showing me a picture collage she created and when I asked how she made that, she introduced me to PicMonkey!
 I am probably one of the last people to learn about this little gem of a website, but I was so used to using PowerPoint for my picture collages. This is SO much better!
Warning: PicMonkey is highly addictive and there are so many features that you can get sucked in for hours without even realizing it!
Here is the main page of basic edits for a photo.
Insert photos from choice of many different sources.
Click on Collage at the start page to make a collage of photos.
There are so many choices of types of collages!
Edit the images in the collage by double clicking on the image. The size of the box can also be adjusted by moving the dotted lines around the picture.
I inserted a wallpaper image on the bottom (found in their data bank but you can upload your own too). When you are finished creating the collage of pictures, this screen will appear to take you to editor where there are many more options to play with!
Insert text and I was so impressed that you can use their text or "yours"!!
These are fonts from my computer!
Some fonts or edit features are only available as a "Royale feature".
I added text at the bottom (KG Strawberry limade font).
The effects are endless...
Some effects are for "Royale members"
Frame options...
Themes to add on...see the santa hat on my son?
Another theme add on "Merry Christmas"

  1. That's a useful tried it right there! I'm going to need to remember that when I'm in need of some Christmas card magic! Yours look great!

  2. Ooooh! This looks like FUN! I enjoy trying new apps, websites, and programs like this. THANKS for sharing.


  3. I have tried playing with PicMonkey but I can't seem to figure out how to get my pictures to fit the frames...they always seem too big - and I can't seem to get a vertical collage for Pinterest. Sigh. I guess I'll just have to keep playing with it...
