    • Amanda

      These effects are awesome! Do not get rid of them! I use them on almost everything. Dont change them ,but please do add more! on that note, could you edit something for the paint effect so it can fade? Because i like to use it to paint on colour onto my drawings to make them look water colour, but this paint is a solid thick colour, if you could make it fade, i would cry in happyness!

        Hi Amanda. We’ve gotten that request from others, and it’s on the engineering list. Meantime, you can use the Tint effect and make sure you check “Reverse effect” in the palette that pops up, and then hit the “Effect” button atop the palette. There’s a “Fade” slider in the panel when you have the effect open.

        You could try the lip effect, I always do. It has so many way to ajust it to where it is perfect. :)

    They are amazing! The kids at my library had a blast today making their Halloween photos and printing them out.

    Please keep the Halloween effects permanently! I love some of them, and have been using them for non-Halloween banners and pics. Don’t tease us with goodies then take them away!!!!

    An amazing programme, well done guys. I love the addition of the Halloween effects but would love to see the return of the Trial you had up until Halloween, the programme where I could superimpose 2 pics together, it was brilliant, are you bringing it back, Martin

    • http://PicMonkey.com PicMonkey

      You can still do that, Martin! Fool the Monkey by pretending you’re uploading your own texture, but really the texture is another photo. The button is at the top of the Textures panel; it’s called “Your own.” Use the paintbrush in the paint palette to erase parts of the top photo where you want the bottom photo to show through more.

    I LOOOOVEE ur halloween effects and use them everywhere I can!!! I introduced my cousin to it and he’s addicted!! He can’t stop turning his pics scary!!

      Love to hear it!

  • Andrew

    Hi, where I can find the “Halloween” effect now? They are so incredible and addicting… :)

    • http://PicMonkey.com PicMonkey

      The Halloween effects will always be there. Go to the “themes” tab, which is the bottom tab on the far left. Right now it’s a pumpkin, but when we launch the winter holidays theme, it’ll be something else (maybe a…snowflake?) but it’ll always take you to all the themes we have, including Halloween.

    I really wish you’d have something on here for people to send you their edits…because I have a feeling you’d hire me on if you saw some of the edits I’ve done just using the simple easy editor tools you provide.
