  • I didn’t know you had a wordpress BLOG! Nice!

    • You guys rock! The picmonkey.com site is awesome. I made a web banner and edited pictures. It was fun and easy and the best part it was free. What a contribution you guys are making. :)

  • Amazing site! Following you, of course :)

  • If you click on the “Let us know” link at the way way bottom of the help page (http://help.picmonkey.com) you can really help by telling us how it looked to you. When you send the form, it automatically tells us which operating system and browser you are using, which is a BIG help in identifying problems.

  • I love you guys, but the new ads you have on the save photo page are not a welcome addition. In fact, they cover the save photo and cancel buttons, so I have to close/reload the page and start over. btw, I use a notebook, so the screen is small.

  • I am having that problem also, after i save one photo the next one when i go to save is blocked by the ads! Is this going to continue?? I would rather pay for it that have to deal with that every time.

  • My photos will not save after I edit them. I can click save and nothing happens. My operating system is the same that it always has been. Worked a few weeks ago and now it’s not working. Any problems with saving photos? Thanks so much…LOVE PicMonkey, so I hope I can get this problem resolved:)

  • Lynn Gelinas

    I am having the same problem as Kelly! Used the site yesterday AM to edit 3 pictures, by last night when I was looking to edit more pics, I cannot save anything. Still the same today! ;( Also, no error messages, just sits there. I absolutely LOVE this site, but hoping this gets resolved ASAP!

  • Photos are not saving!!!! RRRRRRRRRR

    • copying and pasting response to Kelly: Do us a favor and click the link “Let us know!” at the way, way bottom of the Help page — http://help.picmonkey.com/. If you briefly say, as you have here, what the problem is, the page that gets sent to our engineers will also include the browser and operating system info, which helps a TON. We’ll get this fixed.

  • Me three! Just used last week and now I cannot save anything! So frustrating.

    • Thanks for telling us, Bridgett. Would you please click the link “Let us know!” at the way, way bottom of the Help page — http://help.picmonkey.com/. If you briefly say what the problem is, the page that gets sent to our engineers will also include the browser and operating system info, which helps a TON. Thanks!

  • Hello Monkey guys, I love this Site.
    Did you guys are gonna make a WIndows 8 App for PicMonkey?

  • We’d love to see a Pinterest board with awesome holiday photocard examples (we’d love to repin them!). The ones you did for Halloween were totally sweet!

  • kathy Reynolds

    Love love love picmonkey – would love to see you add a chalkboard with chalk effect

  • kathy Reynolds

    PS I am with Dana, would love to see holiday photo editing capability like with halloween, I used the halloween one to death :P

  • Love it if we could save the collages/photos to true print sizes…5×7 4×6 etc…it would be great for printing! Love picmonkey!!

    • You can make your collage exactly the print size you want, if you type in the correct pixel dimensions for that size. We have a handy dandy chart with those details. Go to help.picmonkey.com, and click on the article “Best photo sizes for printing” in the Feature Help section. There’s also an article called “Collage Re-size How-to” that tells you how to input new pixel dimensions.

  • There has got to me away to edit a ‘batch’ of photos and not have to go back and call up each one from it’s file…..it takes to long, HELP?? Thank you!!

    • Hey Rosie. Batch editing is on our to-do features list. Thanks for telling us that you’ll be one of the appreciators when we get that one built.

      • Heya! Loyal Royale Subscriber here! First off, can’t tell ya how much I LOVE using your editing program. Love, love, love!

        Any news on Batch Editing? Would love to know a possible roll-out date; if there is one!

        Samantha

        • Hey would love to know how the batch editing is coming along, I use pic monkey all of the time and batch editing would make things so much easier!
          Thanks

  • LOVE PicMonkey so much! I use it all the time and can’t imagine being without it! Can you tell us ‘when’ the Pay-Per-Royale site will be available? I paid for it before, I’ll do it again! I will! ;)

    Any chance of getting the “Bold, Itallic” for all fonts? Is that even possible? lol Am also looking forward to more Holiday editing! The Halloween stuff was the bomb! Overlays are amazing!!

    *hugs the monkey*

  • Thanks a looooot for this stunning website, I use it everytime I have a picture now, thanks thanks thanks thanks !

  • is picmonkey accessible on an ipad/apple products?

    • Not yet, Cece. But doing an app for mobile is fo sho on our list.

      • I was going to ask the same thing.. My laptop just stop working and now I am not going to be able to put effects on my pictures because I just have an IPad right now :(

      • Yes! I just got my iPad and was salivating at the idea of a more portable Pic Monkey when lo and behold, no app! Yikes!! devastation. Anyway – I just want to say that I paid for a year subscription (a few weeks ago) and I am super happy and anxiously await the app for iPad. Is there a way to be notified when that happens? Will it be covered under my existing subscription? Sending you all lots of Love.
        Kelly

      • Please make it available asap!! :)

  • Hi, love your site! I am however in desperate need of Christmas editing stuff, will that be available anytime soon, like this week :-) No pressure haha

  • Can anyone tell me how how to edit a ‘batch’ of photos instead of just one at a time??

  • is this free? or as of now only

  • esta genel Picmokey

  • I really, really, really love you guys! Like…..some strange family members…thank you for the great product that PicMonkey IS

  • I adore picmonkey…really dont know what i would do without it:) but when your’ll are introducing the “royale upgrade” please make it easy to pay..some of us dont have paypal or credit cards:(

  • WILL PICMONKEY HAVE CHRISTMAS APPS? PICNIK CHRISTMAS APPS WERE FANSTATIC

  • How do I go about letting you guys use my photography for your stock photos along with Chelsea Fisher? (:

  • ‘Hello, picmonkey I love, but I wish we could download that application on the phone, thanks*

  • Thanks for all that you do for Facebook friends with all your apps. looking forward to the holiday apps thanks again !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Britney Reynolds

    You’re going to start making people pay for features that are currently free?

  • Este editor no le llega ni al talón al añorado PICNIK, los efectos y elemntos para añadir en épocas especiales, este no tiene nada de nada
    ¡QUE NOS DEVUELVAN PICNIK!

  • I’m using Safari on a Mac and can’t scroll through anything on the site. It’s as if my mouse is broken. It’s inconvenient because I can’t scroll to zoom in when I’m editing a photo and I can’t scroll through any effects on the left. It does work on Google Chrome though, but unfortunately Chrome makes my computer really slow. If possible please try to fix whatever problem it is that won’t let me scroll while using Safari. Thank you!!

  • Please make a Android App!!!!

  • Thank you! you are perfect, I was lost when the *other one* closed. I did not want to have to slog through Adobe Photoshop’s layers & layers of STUFF just to do the simple editing I need for my web store listings.
    Thank you for existing. Can I send you some money? (not kidding but in a small way)

  • Yea for PicMonkey! Thank you for a simple easy to use pic editor. Great overlays! Keep up the great work. I’m telling everyone I know about PicMonkey. When it becomes a paid product
    will we be able to download it to a computer?

  • Hi, I just went through the Winter section, will you be adding any Santa Hats or Elf ears and hats …etc….to the image overlays? Thanks!

    • Sorry no santa hats this year. We decided to go more Martha Stewart-y than funkay-kooky.

      • I have to say that is a huge bummer :(((( and ideas where I can find some…
        Honestly Santa hats should be a mainstay on a photo editing site for Christmas, we all want to add something to our avatars on FB and Twitter!
        Your “Martha Stewart” stuff is a little boring….I don’t think I will be able to use much…….just my feedback!
        Do love you and will pay once the site allows more features, such as saving past edited pics….

      • I also agree about Santa hats and other Christmas decorations was lots of fun in picnik but pic monkey is not yet up to par with apps. I also do not care for Martha Stewart stuff. I like the pic-monkey and will also pay when all the apps are added that were in picnik .

  • Thank you so much for your creativity and fun, you make me smile all the time! I’m such a big fan that I’d like to sport some PicMonkey gear. How about a shirt with your logo and the banana that says, “Presto”?! Oooh, or a travel mug! Keychain? Maybe a cookie cutter. Plastic grocery shopper!….

  • Thank you, thank you. When Picnik closed down I was lost. sorry you photoshop snobs, I have better things to do with my time than spend hours editing photos. You guys are awesome. I will definitely pay for it and will give you a shout out!

  • other things I could use in a paid product: batch processing, handles tiff files. anything else? oh, and Mac please :)

  • Hi! I just wanna ask is everything free? Yesterday, not on purpose, i clicked on that button which came out when you try to save picture with that monkey which comes out in the right corner of the picture, and every monkey and crown disappeared … I wanna ask what happened? and why did they disappeared?

  • Hello there, I watend to let you know that we, at freshnews, love Picmonkey. We use Picmonkey everyday to finalisize the freshnews front pic of the daily show. freshnews hits 400k views a month, and everyday powered by PicMonkey !! Contact me, i have a great idea to promote Picmonkey in France.

  • Trish Conrad

    I have a few questions…can I use PicMonkey fonts for professional purposes/resale. How do I register to get the advanced fonts (says I’m getting a trial right now)….Thanks! Trish

    • Hi Trish. Can you shoot us an email at http://goo.gl/lE4Na specifying what your business is doing/re-selling and we can think more carefully about that. As to the Royale premium fonts, it’s true that we’re still in a free trial phase now ’til the end of December. After that, you will see an option to upgrade to membership for permanent access to all the premium features you’re now seeing.

  • Hello! Its okay if there will be no santa hats available or reindeer etc,Will there anything christmas related available like trees?

  • graveyardstomper

    This is completely ridiculous that you expect people to pay for things they have been using for almost a year now for free! It’s all good though cause there are at least three other free photo editing sites I can think of that are just as good and one is even better. But you go on with your bad self and expect people to pay….

    • I think it is absolutely riculous that they are charging $4.99 a month. picnik you could choose how to pay. You could pay monthly or by year through picnik. Yes there are some things that are free but everything I use is not free. I am a photographer on the side and I loved using this site but I can not afford $4.99 a month. I can however afford $24.99 a year. That is what I paid on picnik. Picmonkey is just like picnik. You should reavulate your decision about charging people $4.99 a month. You should give people a choice how to pay. Just Saying!!!

  • Hi guys…LOVE your editing here…but I think at $4.99 a month you might be asking a little too much to be honest. I don’t mind paying for things I use but you are charging more than some full editing software programs out there that allow for batch editing etc….are you sure $4.99/month is a fair price?

    • Ashley Stratton

      I’d pay you guys even more if I had to, valuable things don’t come free and I wish people realized that. What’s five bucks a month? Most ppl spend that just on pop in ONE day. Thanks for everything PicMonkey <3

  • Why do we have to pay now?! this is so bad my life without picmonkey is nothing and i dont know if i can trust online payments at all, what should i do?

  • çok tan buyana kullandık şimdi paralı oldu nenini sora bilirmiyim neye paralı oldu ben bunu ticari olarak kullanmıyorum bu konuda bir cevap verirseniz sevinirim

  • Hello, dear PicMonkey)
    Is a free editing is over? I cant edit ma photos anymore, asks me to upgrade, which means this editor is not free anymore?
    Tnank you

  • Hoy edite una foto , quisiera saber si hay la posibilidad de recuperar esa foto ya que se me perdió

  • hi. I thought this was FREE as editor says the site .. and as always was, why I have to pay now? will lose many access :)

  • how can you do this? why we have to pay now? What do I do now? This is horrible.

  • yo usaba picmonkey hasta que se les ocurrió la estúpida idea de cobrar por mas de la mitad de los efectos y los que mas se utilizan, eso no hará que paguen, perderán a gente que utiliza su pagina, eso es un abuso en verdad…. solo queria aportar , es un comentario representando a la gente que utiliza picmonkey(:

  • Dear Picmonkey,

    Almost everyday I take pictures and edit them and today I wanted to edit and it says upgrade. I swear I’m used to this website so please remove the upgrade royal thingy please. How I’m going to edit pictures now :( ??

  • PLEASE I’M USED TO THIS WEBSITE FOR ALMOST A YEAR . REMOVE THE UPGRADES.

  • Hello, dear PicMonkey)
    Is a free editing is over? I cant edit ma photos anymore, it asks me to upgrade, which means this editor is not free anymore?
    Tnank you

  • U CANT DO THIS TO US I USE THIS WEBSITE EVERYDAY IM NOT PAYING ITS NOT GURANTEED YOULL UPGRAE HOW CAN I TRUST ONLINE PAYMENTS???????

  • i have been crying since yesterday i will report to the government if this doesnt stop. Y DOES IT SAY FREE ON YOUR WEBSITE THEN?

  • This is abuse i cant live without picmonkey please dont do this to me! change it now ASAP! please please i beg you

    • I agree with you RD, people can’t expect EVERYTHING for free. You are right you have other options, but if you like the other sites better you would be using them instead already.

  • Omg. People chill out. It always said these tools would NOT always be free. Of course they gave you a chance to get used them and see that you like them. If you want the service to stay they have to make money. Piknic cost too. Please stop these messages you all sound ridiculously childish and uneducated regarding business and commerce. Why should it be free?!

  • I agree.. $4.99 a month is way too expensive that i used to pay for picnik before which is only $25 per year. Hope picmonkey can consider this so all of us will be happy :)

  • I repeatedly try to sign up for the new Royale edits and once I put all my info in to register, then it locks up and does not register me. HELP!

  • dear picmonkey
    why did you upgrade this wonderful site??? iv been recommending this to so many friends of mine. One of the main reasons were because all these beautiful effects were 100% free!!! I really enjoyed editing my pics here. Now you have upgraded it and I cant use those wonderful effects you’ve had before. Its too expensive for a student like me. could you please make it free as before. You are a Superstar here in Asia you could have that title for the rest of your life by making the website free as before.
    Please do consider my request!
    Thank You!!

  • i agree with you

  • I used to love your site, now my favorite effects need the Upgrade :( i wont be able to use it anymore because I do not have a credit card.

  • this site sucks now that is not free!! does anyone know a site like this were its still free?!?!!? :( cant edit any pics normaly all u can do is use the simple effects like crop and stuff

  • dastardly's page i won't ever use this side again

    dastardly’s page i won’t ever use this side again

  • I was highly recommending Picmonkey on my blog, but I don’t feel I can do that anymore, now that you are charging a fee for the exact things that used to be free. I can understand creating “royal” upgrades that are new and charging for them, but not charging for things that you were offering free before. The $4.99 price tag seems too high for everyday users. Disappointed.

  • i have also been having an issue trying to register. I input my credit card information and it charges my card , then suddenly it tells me that my card isnt working and it automatically does a reversal. wth ;(

  • Thank you so much for the information – Merry CHRISTmas!

  • Alex Faulkner

    I used to love using PicMonkey, it was great because it was free, photoshop costs too much and PicMonket is so much easier to use. Until I had to pay. I’m in high school so can’t pay. I’m very upset I can’t use any of my favourite tools anymore. Goodbye PicMonkey.

    • Alex Faulkner

      Oh, may I ask WHY you have started charging for stuff that sued to be free? I find that really annoying and unfair.

  • So sad it’s not free anymore…
    Is it possible to pay with any credit card (european one) ?

  • Tarra Draino

    You had one of the best FREE photo editing sites. I am not a professional photographer or anything I just love to edit my family photos. Now I have to pay for some of my favorite features and the fee is crazy 4.99 a month why don’t you do it cheaper and maybe I would consider paying. I do not edit photos every month and it is absurd to ask us to pay. You guys had a good thing going. Please make it free again, thanks an unpleasant picmonkey fan!!!

  • Can you just, dear PicMonkey, tell us, why the royale effects are not free anymore?

    • Why yes we can! It’s how we will pay to keep the lights on, so we can keep on making you new features and overlays and textures and fonts! It’s part of our business model, and we’re sad that some folks hadn’t noticed all the signs and signals we put out there saying we needed to do it one day. That day is here. Please stay with us; there’s more cool stuff to come.

  • I honestly don’t like the fact that I can barely edit my pics because they’re all stinkin royale! I’m not gonna use Picmonkey until they’re off and everything is free again.

    • You can’t, and now they make the picture worse intentionally so you HAVE to pay! Just search for different company or website that’s actually free or doesn’t charge so much! Good luck! Merry Christmas!

  • Hello,is a free editing is over? I cant edit ma photos anymore, asks me to upgrade, which means this editor is not free anymore?how i cant edit my photos free again? :(
    Thank you

  • Hello …I use to use this great editor everyday on my pics. I am a pro photografer and I am from Brazil . Now the page are asking me to upgrade ….pay …ok…. but soon as I put my info international card on the form…..does not go trough……says : ” Hmmph, your bank rejected that credit card.
    Please make sure all the info is correct.” MY CREDIT CARD IT IS OK….i guess any problem on the page? pleaseeee help ..emergency

  • I repeatedly try to sign up for the new Royale edits and once I put all my info in to register, then it locks up and does not register me. HELP!

  • Since you’ve made many of your editing options have changed to being charged, when I use the basic editing & get ready to save pic, it looks worse! It’s fuzzy & appears the pixels have changed! I don’t think I’ll be using picmonkey anylonger since they are charging too much & al the “issues”. Does your software make the pics worse to coerce people into wanting to buy or upgrade? This never happened before you weren’t charging for the options.

  • hey nw picmonkey will never be free for us .?

  • So very sad to find that the features I used last month for free have been turned into ones you must pay for. I’m a very sad, sad poor photographer who used to sing your praises…sigh…
    And the trying to leave a comment thing is obnoxious, I don’t have a wordpress blog, but it keeps asking me to sign in to leave a comment.

  • Hello PicMonkey! I’ve just paid for my one month subscription on here but can I suggest that you add in PayPal? I don’t feel very comfortable giving my credit card number on the net although I’m pretty sure it is safe & secured with you guys but still you know… Plus, PayPal makes things a lot easier for all of us. I hope you will consider adding it in thanks! :)

  • Could you please make it possible to pay via Paypal? Credit Card is not an option for us.

  • Most people will not want to have their credit card charged every month. I loved picnik’s price of $24.99 per year. One payment and then forget about it for a year. $59.88 is just too expensive for a full 12 months. I will now be looking for another alternative.

  • por que estan cobrando si es un servicio gratis como era picnik… ahora que programa gratis podemos utiluzar o que regrese picnik

  • Is there a way that I can do a photoshop type action? Like taking a head from one photo and cropping it into another? I have a really fussy kid that hates pictures being taken, so I need to crop one of his happy faces into one of the group shots where everyone but him look really good.? Make sense? Thanks, and I look forward to hearing back from you.:)

    • Hi Hanna. Open the group photo, and add place the other photo on top by clicking Overlays, and then “Your Own.” (You’re pretending your photo is an overlay). In the Overlay palette that pops up (the square with the color picker), click “Eraser” and start erasing away everything but his head.

  • OMG! I always used PicMonkey, and it was free, all effects. and now!! I cannot edit my photos with the coolest effects. I.m a schoolboy, and havn’t credit card. It’s so bad. Please make it free agin,,, PLEASSSSSSSSSSSE :( :( :(

  • I just tried to sign up for the Royal Edits and stopped before I entered my credit card info…there’s no https// I’m not seeing anything that would lead me feeling that my information is secure. Really find this hard to believe…what up wit dat? Monkey Business!

  • Hi guys…I really would like to see you lower the price to upgrade. The site also is not secure…no https?
    It really is too high for the upgrade…..

  • ohh ..this Royale :( please make it free again .

    • Hi Tracie. So sorry that you’ve had some pain on this matter. We really appreciate your passion around finding a Royale price point that works for you, and hope you’ve noticed the Annual Plan. $33 a year, which is $2.75 a month. Hope you’ll stay on board!

  • Since I have an account and paid for, I thought I could save a project and get back to it later. It has disappeared. Where are they saved? Inside my account?

  • Mandy van der hurk

    I would like to transfer money one month so I can use all the functions. but this can only be done by credit card. and I only have a debit card. now what? Greetings Mandy vd Hurk

    • Hi Mandy! You can get a pre-paid credit card at many drug stores and food stores. Just put $33 on it and you can get the annual plan. Or you can buy monthly, but it won’t automatically renew; you’ll have to do that manually every month. OR you can pay with PayPal. Hope one of these works for you!

  • RE: Welcome to PicMonkey Royale!

    Hello I paid on December 21. Today I wanted to edit the photo, with me again demand payment. but you pay period – a month, until January 21. Why?!!???

    • Hi Julia. Make sure you sign in, when you first come to the site, and then it won’t ask you to upgrade anymore. The Sign In link is in the far upper right corner.

  • SarahRiley Brisbois

    I used to use PicMonkey at least once a week, favorite photo editor by far . I used this for school, work, and blog. It helped to make my photos truly standout and WOW my audience. But now that I have to pay for pretty much any edit, that isn’t a basic edit on any other site? Really disappointing ): I don’t have a way to pay for this, and as a minor, I won’t be able to pay for this for quite a long time . Very sad to have to find a new place.

  • Hello, I am very dissatisfied with picmonkey. I would like picnik back. I am not upset at all with the editing features on picmonkey, it is the price of $4.99 a month that I am upset with. I am a photographer and I love this site to do my edting. It is just like picnik but you are charging way more than they did. I paid $24.99 for a whole year to be able to use the site, which I did not mind. you are charging people $96.00 a year to use your premium stuff, which is riculous because you have everything that picnik did. I have my website through wordpress and I know that it is FREE to use. I think we should have a choice on what to pay just like picnik did. You are going to loose customers this way if you you do not change something in the near future. I knew you were going to be charging something but $4.99 a month is out of the qeustion. I love picmonkey but I will go some where else to do my editing.

  • Okay so I am going to be different! I still love Pic Monkey and will gladly pay the annual fee. It is a wonderful site that is easy to use. If you were a picmonkey user for any amount of time, you should have known that there would be a charge eventually. They have only been saying that since the site was up. If you don’t like it, don’t use it. It is simple. Go buy a program that will be outdated as soon as you buy it or go to one of the free sites! Quit griping and be done with it! Pic Monkey was a light at the end of the tunnel when piknik went dark!! Thanks Pic Monkey!! I still think you are awesome!!

  • Excuse me, we are paying $60.00 a year not $96.00 but still, $60.00 compared to picniks $24.99 a year still sucks!

  • POR FAVOR EU GOSTAVA MUITO WRINCLE REMOVER MAS AGORA É PAGO,

    THOUGHT TO MAKE BUT not trust PICTURE CREDIT CARD OUT IN BLACK AND WHITE LOOKS THROUGH FALSE VCS OPTION NOT LET THE BANK THEN PLEASE BOLETO REGULARISA THAT RIGHT TO BEGIN CHARGING THE SITE IS GOOD BUT NEEDS IMPROVEMENT IN THAT PART OBG

  • Hi There!
    I honestly love your editing site, I have absolutely no problem with it so far.
    I am just about to sight up for Royal at this moment, but I was searching for an answer for my question, when I found myself upon this blog and it’s pretty helpful !
    Anyway, I was wondering . . if you choose the plan of $33 a year; do you pay all $33 at once or do you pay the $2.75 every month?
    Also, when it’s time to pay the bill every month do you guys just take the money out automatically? or do we like have to confirm it first, like any other bill?

    I really hope you understand my question!
    Have a nice day!

    • Hi Daisy. The $33 a year price is available when you buy the whole year all at once. When you are paying for it on a monthly basis, you don’t have to confirm it first, it automatically renews until you cancel your subscription, which you are free to do at any time.

  • yo pago porque lo amo

    • I Love PicMonkey, It is so easy for me to use and understand..Thank You..My trouble is my files are huge….Any plans on updating so we can edited faster with larger files.

  • This is most likely ‘not’ the place to write this but I don’t know where else, sooo . . .

    I’m a total amateur who stares blankly at ‘serious’ photo-editing software such as Paint, etc. and I wouldn’t even dare look at software such as Photoshop.
    So I love the Monkey. Perfect for me. The original fee schedule for Royale annoyed me a tad but when the reduced, fuhgeddaboutit-for-a-year-at-a-time fee came out, I’m good.

    My request/suggestion/begging-on-hands-and-knees is for additional actual editing effects to be added, especially – pretty please! – a simple layers tool such as Fotoflexer has. No! PicMonkey blows that F-word editor away, but it has a very simple section for transparent blending, layers, etc.
    I want to be able to put an orangutan head on the Donald, just for example. Easily but looking almost professional. . . . And other cool effects such as heat map, etc.

    Not so much the cutesy stuff. For me, anyway, the pre-made overlays – happy faces, hearts, lips, buttons – are not important, but perhaps others dig them mucho. For myself, I’m talking about even more options, Royale or not, for additional effects combined with PicMonkey simplicity.
    Yes, I’m greedy …

  • Are you going to have anything to add to photos for St. Patrick’s Day? Love PicMonkey!!

  • Love your site… I hope you’re working on an App – using this on iPad would be amazing!!!

    We absolutely love your blog and find the majority of your post’s to be exactly I’m looking for.
    Do you offer guest writers to write content for you personally?
    I wouldn’t mind writing a post or elaborating on a number of the subjects you write concerning here. Again, awesome web site!

  • pls remove th royale…make it free

  • Are my photos saved in a history? In Picnic, loved the feature of being able to go back into my history and continue editing at a later time. Having paid for the Royale subscription, I was sure hoping to see my pics saved somewhere other than my own desktop. Any chance of this coming down the road?

  • Hi! First of all I want to thank you all for the time you are putting in to make this site such a pleasure to browse tru! Congrats! I am hooked! Well when I did my first pic, I used an effect that I simply loved..Tiny stars covering the whole picture, what gave it a fantastic final touch. But…a few days later I started working on a different pic, and when I tried to use the same effect it was gone! Was it removed by you or am I just missed it! I intend to use that several times, so please let me know. Thanks!

    • Tomorrow, 3/19, we should be launching Light effects, and one of them is called Twinkle Stars. You should be able to get the look you want.

  • I did receive an email back when I asked a question, but it was a generic email and did not directly answer it. I looked for my answer in all of the suggested places, but no go. I am wondering if I could get a personal response as soon as time permits?? This is in regards to case # 25424
    Thanks much!

  • Any plans for an iphone picmonkey app? I could REALLY USE THAT!

  • Like the new Ombre effect.

  • I love PicMonkey, used it allready when it was inplemented in Picasa. Sorry if my English is not perfect. What really makes me agry that for the past weeks the is SPAM on de site the minute I want to edit a photo. This means I can not see the top part of my picture to edit!!!! I am a professional Photographer and shoot many pics with models…so I have to edit on the face and figure sometimes. Now with the SPAM I cannot do this properly anymore. Can you please tell me how to get rit of the SPAM!

  • This has probably been asked about before but do you have any plans for an app for the itunes store? Ipad, Iphone, or Ipod touch?!

  • soooo

  • Jessica Braswell

    I registered a while ago and I really haven’t been happy with it. It never works. I just don’t want it any more. I would like to cancel
    Thank you
    Jessica Braswell

    • Jessica, so bummed it hasn’t been working out for you. Would you please send us a note at http://help.picmonkey.com/customer/portal/emails/new
      to let us know what’s not working? Maybe we can help you. If not, bon voyage, and you can cancel at any time by hovering over your name in the upper right corner, and clicking on “account.” If you don’t see your name in the upper right corner of the screen, that could be why stuff isn’t working: you never signed in! Stay good.

  • When I click on a photo to upload nothing comes up. Help!!

  • Hi. I recently purchased a one year membership but do not want it to auto-renew. I am unable to tell how to change that setting without canceling my current membership, which I desire to take full advantage of.

    Are you able to assist me with this?

    Thank you!

    • Hi Kristine. No worries! When you’re signed in, your name appears in the upper right corner. Hover over your name and click on “Account” which shows up underneath it. The “Manage your account” page will pop up and “Cancel membership” appears in blue, towards the bottom of that page. When you cancel a yearly membership before the expiration date, your status as a Royale member stays active until that full year is up. It will show the expiration date and confirm that you have up until that point to use Royale.

      • Real Food Girl: Unmodified

        Fantastic! Thanks so much! That’s what I was hoping, but I didn’t want to hit cancel and then lose all my fancy schmancy new options!!

  • Hi,
    I can’t find out how to set up an account. It only asks me to sign in with a password. I need a spot to set up an account. janispatriciacox@hotmail.com
    thanks
    Janis

    • Hi Janis. In the upper right corner, there’s a button/link that says “Upgrade.” That’s where you can start the process for getting your Royale account.

  • ughhhh i hate when i pay monthly and i can’t get on the site. I need to edit some photos and I haven’t been able to get on in the last hour!!!

  • Is there a way I can share your website on my blog for my followers like a button?

    • Hi Char! Thanks SO much for your interest in spreading the good word!! We are working on creating badges for folks to use. Hang in there… meantime, you can just give the link.

  • I paid for a membership, but it’s still asking me to upgrade. I am trying to edit pictures NOW! What gives???

  • Quick question: I have a Royale account, but when I tried to use it on a computer at work I’m not able to log in – it tells me my password is incorrect. I tried multiple times (very carefully) and am confident I am typing it in correctly. Is it possibly because I keep my home computer logged into picmonkey all the time?

  • Thanks for your marvelous posting! I seriously enjoyed reading it, you
    happen to be a great author. I will ensure that I bookmark your blog and will come back later in life.
    I want to encourage you to ultimately continue your great writing,
    have a nice weekend!

  • tonya wolfe

    I am trying to figure out who to speak with. 2 months ago I signed up for the 1 month thing so I could test it out and now I am still being charged the 4$ amount. Why I only signed up for 1 month.

  • Ron Elsinga

    There is no tool to adjust the common lens distortions, like barrel-, pincushion- and moustache distortion, hidden somewhere in the monkey’s den?

  • will you possibly be, in the future, creating an offline program? Sometimes, amazingly, there are places that we travel that does not have wi-fi/internet, and I would still like to be able to use offline?

  • Dennis Hodges

    Picmonkey is fantastic, I think anyone that uses it will get amazing results.
    I use to have a copy of Adobe Home Edition 3 and it had a smudge tool in it that I really liked. With the clone and smudge tool you can do almost anything… (c;

    Is there any chance that you could put a smudge tool in Pickmonkey in the near future?

  • I love pic monkey. Help me a lot with my blog. And to be more creative with family pics.
    I hope this site stay forever great FREE and cool! Thank you very much!

  • Will you do a Samsung app for PicMonkey too?

  • Hello Team PicMonkey – I have been trying to get on the website for days and it isn’t working. I have an upgraded account and i can’t get on the website. Can you please advise?

  • I have no problems at all and would be happy to pay a small fee for using the royal effects. I haven’t explored yet, I think I would be happy to pay a small fee in the months that I use it. I am not always online editing, but when I do I love dropping in to Picmonkey and seeing if you have something for me. Lots of love and keep up the good work.

  • I love the collage maker, but it would be awesome if I could add text to that too.

  • Is there an app for ipad? It would be so great if there was.

  • Hi! love your site :) you guys doing great job, can I create a header for my website using PicMonkey editor?

  • anyone else having trouble getting the editing to load up today?

  • Edie Rodriguez

    Get rid of the lined paper it’s too distracting to use the program with. Don’t fix what’s not broken. I’m a paying subscriber – the background on the home page is a bad choice.

    • Hi Edie. Have you noticed the Presto Change-o button under the PicMonkey brandmark on the home page? You can switch out the background to wood, madras, linen, and a whole host of other options.

  • Hi there! Quick question. I’d like to design some stuff using the PicMonkey editor, and would like to sell some of my designs on Zazzle/Cafepress. Is this possible?
    Thanks!

  • when i try to select things on my picture it won’t work, it simply won’t select them! what do i do? i’ve checked the help center & sent an email!

  • I’m having with selecting things as well. It won’t let me select anything and there is no error message,

  • Hi. I’ve been pondering starting my own, personal blog and am simply wondering
    where you got your style? Was it a free template or not free A lot of the totally free designs
    I find are extremely low quality and also filled with ads.

    I’m ready to spend some money to get a decent design.
    Thanks for your time!

    • Oh, this is definitely an off-the-shelf blog template from WordPress.org — it’s Triton Lite, I think — but our designer made some tweaks to it. She’s pretty amazing.

  • Hi team,
    Love this site however new to photography and need to make some of my images after the edits to be high resolution for large printing? Can this be done on here or do i need photoshop to convert ?

    • Hi Suzie. When you save, PicMOnkey asks you to choose a quality setting. “Sean” is the best quality and should be good enough for stuff that’s no larger than the Sistine Chapel.

  • Hi there! Quick question. I’d like to design some stuff using the PicMonkey editor, and would like to sell some of my designs on Zazzle/Cafepress. Is this possible?
    Thanks!

    • Hi Jennifer. You can sell things you make with PicMonkey, as long as you’re not selling things that are essentially the same as we’ve put them on the site. So, you can’t take our heart overlay, change a few pixels here and there, and sell it as a heart overlay. But you can layer it on top of a photo or graphic and sell it as a new creation. The point is that you’re making an entirely new creation with what we’re offering on the site. Chelsea Fischer photographs are copyrighted, so don’t use those. Hope this helps!

  • Tatiana Rodriguez

    Hi,today I tried to buy the Royale membership. I entered all the information and it went through, but when I tried to use the Royale tools, it wouldn’t let me. I went back to my account, it says theres no payment information, keeps telling me to upgrade, and whenever i enter my information the button says renew. I thought about deleting my account and trying again, but then it said to keep the remaining days of my membership or get rid of anything. Can you please help?

  • Trina Blackburn

    Suuuper frustrated right now. I wanted to upgrade my account tonight, and it wont let me.. says that the payment keeps rejecting. I called my credit card company, and they said all is fine on their end.. What’s the deal? :(

  • Como me Registro en PicMonkey ‘o como creo mi propia cuenta de PicMonkey antes cuando estaba aun Picnick tenia mi propia cuenta pero en picmonkey la vdd no le ayo :(

  • What is going on with Picmonkey? I’m having all sorts of pop-ups and it’s spamming my internet. Furthermore, the ads on Picmonkey are so bad that I can’t see what I’m editing. I hope I’m not still paying for the upgrade with this kind of service.

    Are you experiencing issues with the site? PLEASE inform your loyal paying customers.
    Thanks!

  • Dennis Thomsen

    Just a heads up, some problem with the cropping tool. Isn’t working, or I should say it wasn’t at 9:30 CST. No, I’m not a rookie and I’m one of your paid suscribers. Thought you would want to know.

  • Hi. I was wondering if there is a possibility of maybe in the future being able to open two pictures at once, in order to clone, say, a face from one picture onto the other picture. I would like to be able to do this without losing any resolution. I have done this with the collage maker, but I have to crop the second picture out at the end of the transplant, and the resulting image of course has a very low resolution/is pretty pixelated.

    I LOVE using the site! This is my only request of what more it could offer.

    • Hi Wendi. What I think you want will work if you open one picture on top of another picture by pretending that the second picture is an overlay. Steps: 1. open first pic in the Editor 2. Click Overlays tab 3. Click “Your Own” which lets you open your own “overlay” on top. 4. In the Overlay palette that pops up with your second image, click the “Eraser” tab and use that eraser to erase off everything but the face on the second picture, and your first picture will show through behind it. Wah-lah!

  • PICMONKEY! I love using this site, very easy and so cute. I’ve edited my picture here and turned it to vampire, my friends like it and they asked what site I used for it . It’s really great!Thanks for this blog site. Just wanna ask, do you have a theme for Christmas Holiday? Is it possible for you guys to have it after nov. 1?hehehe… Im just really excited to edit my picture again.

    Thank you PICMONNKEY.
    More power!..:-)

  • oh my gosh! there is already. i didnt know that! the winter land theme. yay! never mind my first comment PICMONKEY..:-)

    Love you guys!

  • Hi Picmonkey! Why is the red-eye function not working? Tested in IE 9.

  • Please x100000 change the DARK and MISERABLE Halloween theme. For the past month+ I have battled with not being able to see my borders and the BLACKNESS detracts from the image I’m editing. You have a global community who don’t ALL celebrate Halloween and certainly don’t ONLY do Halloween editing. I see that advertising your new functions and themes is great, but NOT on the ACTUAL design page. I am SOOOO depressed and i don’t look forward to spending hours editing on such a GLOOMY page. Thank you – but I do LOVE Picmonkey which is why I am taking the time to express my feelings.

    P.S Please NOOOOOO Christmas themed background either. Plain cream/pale grey is just fine for us creatives!!!

  • Are you guys planing to release anything for the Thanksgiving Holiday?

  • Debbie Thorn

    I am premium user and I would like the option to download my own fonts for use !! Thanks for listening !!

  • PLEASE do BATCH EDITING! :[ saw this was in the works last year,,,would really enjoy saving time editing photos…pweese pickmonkey!

  • It should be nice if you placed more about the beach….like shells etc. and for Christmas…like candles…

  • Hi All, I have a question. Could you tell me, simply, how to change the background in a photo. If it’s black and I want to make it white, is it possible. Otherwise, PicMonkey is the BEST! Love it! Thank you…

  • Dennis Hodges

    Can you or will you place a smudge tool on Pic-monkey, it would be extremely helpful. Pic-monkey is a great program, thanks a lot.

  • Any word on making it avail for the iPad? I paid for a year subscription royale only to find it won’t work on my iPad – my only current device :(

  • i LOVE you guys. Love. Any chance you’ll have shaped text option? then I would be head over heels in LOVE! :>D

  • Debbie Thorn

    Still wondering if it would be possible for a option to upload out own fonts for use on picmonkey ?? I pay for the upgrade and would enjoy this option !! Thanks !!

  • Debbie Thorn

    Our own fonts *

  • Wow des nouvelles choses pour Noël merci beaucoup!!!!

  • Hi folks! I just wanted to say thank for your wonderful service! I have been using PicMonkey for a couple of years and I have made a whole website out of my art pieces! I even started selling some recently, its so cool! (check it out: http://www.luckamantra.com/p/through-my-lens.html )

    Not only that, I introduced my mom to this site and now she is using it all the time! Which is amazing because she had no idea how to even use a computer, let alone edit photos.

    Thanks again you guys! If you ever need a testimonial, I’m your girl :)

  • Dennis Hodges

    I think you need to put a smudge tool on PicMonkey … :)

  • hello —
    I REALLY WANT THIS TO WORK ON MY I PAD WILL IT EVER WORK ON MY I PAD SOME DAY?

  • I’ve been waiting for an hour for pic monkey to register my payment????

  • Dennis Hodges

    I totally agree with Joh Domingo plus there are so many comments it takes forever to scroll down to leave a new one.

  • Hi John. We are re-designing the home page right now so that you can find this stuff more easily. We have a link at the bottom of the home page for help. At the bottom of the help page is a link for contacting us. Here’s the form: http://www.picmonkey.com/help/support/new

  • Jessica Wilson

    Absolutely none of my photos are saving. It lets me edit and finish but as soon as I click “save” it just shows a loading bar and it never stops. Suggestions? Is this happening to anyone else?

  • This is getting beyond a parody. Picmonkey does not respond to any messages at all. They are incapable of even the briefest of responses. Totally unconcerned, and couldn’t care less.

  • Hello. Twice I have paid via Pay pal for the upgrated bit of pic monkey and twice it hasn’t come through. It appears to go through paypal. Can you please check, if gone through twice please delete one of them.
    Thanks

  • oh picmonkey gods, please hear my plea!! Love pay to play. Bless the Kingdom: Animalia,
    Phylum: Chordata, Subphylum: Vertebrata, Class: Mammalia, Order: Primates (Yup I’m a nerd and photo pro so ignore my prose.)

    Completely happy to pay for Royale! Already pay so bring more on, you’re worth it!
    wishlist for when using point and shoot which happens more and more than I would like:
    -Bokah Effect- that is easily manipulated (like some of the free plugins on the awful monopolistic stand alone editing programs. Need to blur out that background that the P&S considers all one focus.
    -HDR Effect- decent that it allows spot editing for the look that is “en vogue” it works in some situations but is much overused currently. But, convenient as hell when in a pinch.

    Would love these paid additions soon! Best, LCutting2001@yahoo.com

  • When will app for PicMonkey be available for the iPad and desktop PC?

  • I would pay if it had batch editing. Without it, no way.

  • What is the problem with the software today? When I try to edit a photo, I get an error message’ – something about a ‘timeout error’. Can someone help out, please? Thanks.

  • is there anyway to re-edit photos you already edited on PicMonkey? tried saving them but when opening them on PicMonkey its wont let me re-edit photo ie cant see original font used during 1st edit :-(

  • When i ever open your site the webpage keep on loading , i have been using your editor from many years . made me sad ;(

  • Hi I hope some of your readers can help me. I find it very frustrating that when one sends an email enquiry it takes so long or never to get a reply. I would gladly pay for telephone help as Im not a techie. I want to make a subway poster 18″ x 84 inches finished size for printing. When I looked your instructions for size were to multiply the inches by 300 (which I presume means pixels) which gives me a finished size of 5400 x 25,200. When I try to do a custom design in the edit size using those numbers nothing happens. Those sizes seem large so perhaps I am misreading something any help would be appreciated as I am ready to scream with this. Stapes can print any length they tell me and up to 36 inches wide so this falls within their guidelines. Why can a not make a graphic of that size. Help, Help Help.

    • Sorry to hear this. We try to get back to all emails in a timely fashion, we apologize if there has been a delay. The largest PicMonkey can edit and save images is 16 megapixels which is roughly 4000 x 4000.

  • Just found you here on WordPress! Great. Glad to find and follow you here. I’ve been using PicMonkey for quite some time and love it. I’m about ready to upgrade to Royale. I opted for a free week to check it out, only it won’t allow me to use it.

  • I didn’t know you had a wordpress BLOG! Nice!

  • Nice to see you have a wordpress blog! This monkey rocks! :D

  • Where did the collage with the circles go?

  • I have used pic monkey since the beginning, before Royale and as soon as it was offered I have been a Royale customer. I LOVE picmonkey!! Seriously I LOVE it!! However today (and this weekend) when I try to save a picture it takes me to a screen with a tiny monkey head in the upper left hand corner of the page? My Flash is up to date and I am using Google Chrome so everything I have seen that “fixes the problem” is not applicable?? Help me please!!!

  • I have almost the same problems as Stephany.. everything is up to date,- saving photos to my mac has never been an issue befor, now when I think its saved ( thats what picmonky imply when I do the normal procedure) its not to be found on my pc any where -PLEASE HELP !!!
    I LOVE PICKMONKEY, I cant do with out :-)

  • Any chance you can offer a 300dpi option?

  • has anyone tried to get professional prints of a photo they’ve edited on here? curious how it turned out.

  • Ditto Stephany & babs. Same thing here!! I’ve tried several different photos from 2 different cameras. Used Chrome & IE. No luck. Everything is up to date. Has anyone heard any answers? Hate to start using another editing problem. Love Picmonkey!

  • Hi, I’m unable to cut and paste text from my manuscript onto a picture. Every time I try it comes up with “null”. Any idea how I can fix this, please?

  • The new site isn’t working…can’t get to edit photo. Nothing is happening.

  • When I am editing on picmonkey my photos look phenominal!!! But when I save them to my computer they are blurry :-/, they do not look they same awesome way they do on picmonkey.

  • hey i use your site to make some cool designs for my clothing line and i was wondering if you guys can actually apply a line grid on the platform on your site when your working on things so that everything looks neat and centered when im done editing a pic

  • Hi!

    Is there any way I can save an edited photo with text on Picmonkey then go back to it at a later date and edit it again and change the text? Or do I have to start from scratch?

    Thanks and keep up the good work!

    David!

  • That is a feature I truly miss from picnik. I do hope it’s in the near future for the Monkey!!!

  • Hi! I absolutely love your site! So I’ve decided to get a year long membership! I was all excited about it, but there was a problem. I filled out all the things I needed to fill out to become a Royale, but when I clicked on the button below(saying something like agree and become a member) and it just started loading and loading and loading. It never stopped loading so I had to cancel! Please fix this problem!

    P.S. I sent a email to you concerning this problem, but I have had no reply

  • Hi picmonkey! can’t login to my account using safari. any reported issue regarding that?

  • Is it possible to load more than one picture on a piece. I am trying to make photos and ad my logo also. Thank you.

  • Rose Scott

    I love this site….and I wish it was compatible to my Kindle Fire….but I am buying a new tablet….and the top priority is that I can use PicMonkey on this tablet. Any suggestions? What about the new Kindle Fire….it has the only 5 star rating out there. As soon as I get the new tablet I’ll get the upgrade. Thanks.

    • PicMonkey2

      In the short term, you can look for a tablet that doesn’t block Flash-based web sites like PicMonkey. So ask for a tablet that runs flash.

  • I honestly love this site … however .. it would be more useful to me if there were more holiday overlays! Such as … holiday hats .. bows and more themes than Halloween! thank you :)

    • PicMonkey2

      Lauren, we have Kringle Caps and a whole bunch of holiday overlays in SantaLand (the themes tab, which has an apple icon). In the Celebrate theme, we have Party Hats.

      We also have Hats mixed in with all the overlays in the Overlays tab.

  • Kari Strand

    I love Picmonkey.. Can you create a DVD Label for us paid members? I would like to use your software to design DVD labels to order from an imaging site I use.

  • I am a royale user, i love the editing, but find it difficult to navigate site. Why can’t I go from edit to make a collage without starting all over.

  • Deborah Price

    I am trying to do a flier. How do I put a picture on the page that has writing on it already?

  • Hi,

    I am having billing problems paying through Paypal. I have had a Royale sub for a year, (paid for through Paypal originally) and I am trying to renew it. I want to pay by month for now, and take out another year sub a little later. However when I try to make my payment, I am put through to a Paypal screen requesting me to link a credit card. I don’t want to do this (and never have). I have plenty of credit on my Paypal account, and Paypal tells me the problem is not with them or with my account (as everything is in order), but could be your merchant settings.
    If you could fix this, I’d really appreciate it. Or if you could tell me what details to enter to make a direct payment through Paypal to your merchant account, I could also do that.
    Either way, I would like to get this done asap so I can get back to editing my pics.
    I have sent you an email regarding this, but recieved an automated reply. (mickenrach@hotmail.com) If you could please advise me I’d really appreciate it.
    Thank you and kind regards,
    Rachel

    • Hi guys.
      I would really appreciate some kind of reply here. Otherwise there is another site I’m quite happy to use that has pretty much all the same options for free.

I cant remember what I did to get the background that I have. I’d like to go in and edit just the text. Can you help me?

  • What happened to all of the sports stickers, etc?

  • Joni Sorsen

    One complaint…If I make a collage and then want to go to editor to add text, I cannot get back to the collage area. Why can’t we go back in case we want to edit a photo or change a photo? GRRR. So frustrating.

  • Kerri Smith

  • Hey there, Editorial Staff, great writing all around – love your style!

  • Suzanne Turner

    Thanks so much for an awesome site, love it! I’ve been having a ball! This is one of my latest creations.

  • Photoshop provides several ways to edit images without
    making changes to the underlying data of the original image, which is known as
    nondestructive editing. One such way is the Camera Raw environment. Many people
    are either completely unaware of the Camera Raw editing environment in
    Photoshop, or they wrongly assume that using Camera Raw requires images to be
    shot in the RAW format. But you can indeed edit the JPEG files from your camera
    in Camera Raw, and once you do, you will see how powerful and intuitive it is.

    Regards Patrick

  • bree johnson

    I think you guys should add buy ons ….kindve like vsco cam …and PS…with actions…I’d pay big bucks for that! Like a matte finish and crisp/bright/saturated…I find there’s some cool effects but I end up only using curves burst clone eye brighten and sometimes urban….having an action type button to combine these would be insane!

    If you guys offer video editing, I promise to change my dog’s name to Pic Monkey. When you’re a small VP at a small bank, you’re the guy with the camera for every donation, volunteer thing, community event, employee event, yikes. Worse, it’s also a small part of my job. So the speedy, intuitive editing tools you provide are well worth the subscription and the wry humor is just swell to a guy stuck reading “bank-ese” all the time. Video! Please!

  • Great blog here! Also your website loads up
    fast! What web host are you using? Can I get your affiliate link to your
    host? I wish my website loaded up as quickly as yours
    lol

  • When will the ipad/iPhone app be available, if ever?! Would be great to have, especially if I already pay for a subscription! Thanks!

  • It’s always my pleasure to read this type of stuff.I am very much interested in these types of topics from childhood and it’s my habit to read this.

  • Hi. (ahem…)

    PLEASE help my friends at PicMonkey (that’s you; awkward… I know) go from 99.44% perfect to at least 99.87% — maybe as high as 99.98% perfect! Pretty please? (I know you do ‘pretty’ as I’ve seen a lot of PicMonkey to know.)

    Creating images is so wonderful here. It’s the saving that’s killing me. My images are flattened, which is necessary when they’re ready to use. But (a) I often need to edit an image and (b) I’d like to create image templates that I can reuse and tweak. Having the option to save or export in another format (dare I say .PSD? I probably shouldn’t, so don’t read what I just wrote and we’re good, right?) …yeah, well, to be able to save in a non-flattening way would REALLY make my life, and the life of my clients, much better.

    Sure, there are work-arounds to this issue (e.g., create a background and re-use it), but that doesn’t always suit the need at hand.

    So PLEASE consider this, even if it’s a premium or pay-up-you-whiney-geeks feature, I’ll be waiting…

    • Hiya. I think you’re talking about layers, and it’s a feature that we hear people want from time to time. Thank you for chiming in; we’re listening!

  • I have an iPad and I want to get pic monkey but it says u have to have flash what does that mean

    • Hey Josephine,

      iPads and iPhones don’t support Flash, which is what PicMonkey and many websites use. For some super expert advice, talk to the peeps at your local Apple store.

    How do I edit a picture once I save it?

  • Is there anyway you all will be adding monogrammed fonts? It would really help out on some designs I am working on. (Circle block, vines, interlocking, etc……

  • It would be helpful if you could edit a saved file. Maybe Picmonkey can create its own extention to distinguish it as a editable file.
    Aside from that, PICMONKEY is awesome!!!!!!! I absolutely love it!

  • How do I remove the borders from the outside and inside of a collage in picmonkey? Not sure if this function is a paid version feature?

    • Hey Paul,

      Good news—it’s not a paid feature! When you’re in the Collage tool. Click on the Backgrounds tab (the icon that looks like a painter’s palette), and set your Spacing to 0. It brings the images together in seamless harmony!

      Hope that helps.

  • I am looking to do a collage on 20×20 with 49 pics. I set the grid and then when adding photos was stopped. Is there a limit to the number of images that can be used? If I upgrade can that help me to get more?

    • Hey Ashley,

      There’s no difference between Royale and regular, and the limitations are based on file size, not the number of files. If your files are average size, you can fit about 40. What you could do, to include the 49 you want, is make a collage of about 25, save it, and then upload that as half of your next collage. Make sense? Hope that helps!

  • Hi there, I love Pic Monkey it’s awesome :) I have question how can create in Pic Monkey banners for website like this http://stylesocialevents.com/ or http://stylesocialevents.com/#/services/? I can’t find tutorial for this task :/

  • I’m coming up on my renewal and was wondering if there will be any new edits or will everything remain the same ( such as new spooky edits since I wore out all the ones that I used last halloween ) thanks just wondering : )

  • Hi I took out a $33 subscription with Picmonkey.

    Can I only edit photos or can I use my own Word documents too?
    Thanks

  • Hi! Are you planning on making a video editor?
    Because that would be pretty cool!

  • I looked around the tutorials and couldn’t find what I was hoping for. Is there a place I can go to learn more about the curves feature in effects? I’m sure there can be a lot of cool uses with it and would like to hear from someone who knows the ins and outs.
    Thanks, I am a big fan of your site!!

  • Hi,

    I love using Picmonkey – super easy and awesome. I’m noticing on these threads that some folks are asking about being able to save projects to reopen at a later time and not getting a response (unless I missed it somewhere).

    If it’s Picmonkey’s policy to have the website run that way even for subscribers that’s fine – I’m just curious if that’s the case and why, or if it’s just a feature that hasn’t been added yet. Being able to save and edit later would be really helpful.

    Would love to hear your thoughts. Again, a big fan, but curious about this issue.

    • Heyo Yoshie,

      Apologies for not making our responses more visible! The save and return feature would be awesome. It’s also crazy expensive and time consuming. We recognize the demand for the option and rest assured that it’s on our docket.

  • Got it, thanks for letting me know!

  • Hello,

    I enjoy the options your site gives for photos, however I do not like how the site has been operating. After doing the same tedious editing on photos, I go to save them and they will not save. This program does not give the option to save projects under your profile. I had to edit the same project three different times because the site froze and I had no choice but to refresh the page. This has happened on several occasions and im thinking about cancelling and going elsewhere.It’s highly frustrating.

  • First of all, I love your site! Unfortunately for the past three days it has failed to work. I am not sure if it is not what the issue is. I am really looking forward to editing some new photos and was considering upgrading. Hoping that I can figure out how to resolve the issue.
    Thanks!
    Jennifer

  • Has anybody ever used Picmonkey for CD covers? I’m working on artwork right now but wanted to make sure the quality will be right. I assuming it will be cool if I save as the highest quality, but would love to hear thoughts if folks have them.
