Sweethearts, You’re My Valentine!

four_effects_of_SweetheartsWe’ve gone and done it. Shot an arrow through the heart of every cutie-patootie feature you’ve ever dreamed of, so you can fall in love with Valentine’s Day all over again. “Sweethearts,” our Valentine’s Day theme, is loaded with beautimosity.

Here are all the goodies you’ll find in the Editor:

Effects: Bokeh Hearts, Hand Tint, Ombre Amour, Desire, Rapture

Frames: Heart Cutouts

Sweet Nothings fonts: Animatic Small Caps, Sacramento, Unkempt, Scripting Pro

Overlays: Hearts, Doodly Hearts, Doily Hearts, Banners, Ribbons, Labels, Vintage Blossoms, Roses, Cupidity, Lips (We have a tutorial on using the two-color ones.)

That’s not all, lovahs. If you walk on over to make a Collage, our Swatches tab offers up a bunch of patterned and solid colors which you can use to fill cells, and then drop text and overlays on top (in the Editor, after you save the collage). There are nine pinky-red swatches to make your Valentine’s images swoon.

    Will these features go away after Valentine’s Day or will they be a Royale Feature? I love the ‘Heart Cutouts’ option!

      I think it’ll stay around, the ones from Christmas and Halloween are still available. I think it stays the way it is right now.

        Cindy’s got it right. Once we launch a theme, we keep it up forevs. Thx for chiming in, Cindy!

      I was wondering the same thing~

      I am trying to figure out how to USE swatches. Every time I drag and drop it covers over the photo. What I am really trying to do is provide my background with some nice texture.

        Hey there. The swatches are made just for filling cells with, and most people then save the collage and then open the whole thing again in the editor and drop text on top of the colored cell. The swatches aren’t really made to be backgrounds.

        The backgrounds tab is the bottom icon on the far left; the icon looks like a painter’s palette. You can use the eyedropper to match any color in a photo or swatch in your collage.

          Thank you this is very helpful. I was hoping to be able to create a patterned background for my collage. Have a great day and thanks for responding.

      Why is hand tint gone? I used it all the time…… :-(

      • http://PicMonkey.com PicMonkey

        Hi Marie. Adobe made some changes to Flash, which caused crashes with this particular effect. So we’ve removed it until Adobe fixes the bug or we discover a workaround. Sorry!

    I have a question, suppose i clone a small dog, how can i make the dog bigger (enlarge)? is there anyway how to do enlargement with the pic i copy or clone? Thanks.

    • http://www.picmonkey.com PicMonkey

      If you are adding the image of the dog to another image or a blank canvas as Your Own Overlay, you can adjust the size of your dog image that way then do the cloning. Is this what you’re looking for?
