We Just Turned Two and We’re Happy Like Pharrell

PicMonkey’s been on the Whirl-a-While Web for two years, peoples! That’s 14 dog years and 9.4 Internet years. But we like to think of our photo editor as a young adult: fun to party with and mature enough to hail our own cab home.

It’s been two years of creative inspiration, sweaty innovation, and editing with a community of PicMonkeyers that expanded by leaps and bounds. This makes us extremely happy, and we just want to keep creating more features for you forever. If you’ve been with us since the beginning, here’s a trip down memory lane.

Who remembers our first home page?


Who remembers our first day of school?

Rock it Smart with School U

Who remembers our first Halloween together?

Who’s given the Monkey a shout out in Facebook, Twitter, the Blog, or our YouTube channel?

    Happy Birthday, Picmonkey! I’ve been with you since day 1. I actually went into panic mood when Picnic was gone and I was still unaware that Picmonkey was coming! You make my job soooo much easier! Everyday I have people asking me to show them how I edit a certain pic. They all think I use Photoshop…..lol. This is so much easier and I’m forever learning tricks that are Photoshop quality. Thank you.

    Just wanted to say that I think I will truly cry if this site goes anywhere! I am a photographer and use PicMonkey for every session I edit. I’ve been using PicMonkey from the very beginning and remember how upset I was when I found out that Picnic was shutting down! I’ve used photoshop and lightroom and I still find that the tools in picmonkey are so much easier and make the pictures actually look better than when I use the other programs! Everyone thinks that I use photoshop, but nope 😉 So THANK YOU!

    Keep up the good work, you crazy kids.!!

    I have viewed your site, and have not been able to watch your tutorials,only because I have friends over,and We are all watching “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” .so I couldn’t disturb them.
    I’m ” IMPRESSED” cant wait to learn more, and use you.

    Cheers! Laura

    I really like using PicMonkey — I started using Picnic for work to crop & enhance photos for websites, and I still do every day. I also do more and more personal photos, especially for photo collages. As I usually print these out, I find it very annoying that adding a border does not preserve the ratio of the pic! Surely many people print out what they do on PicMonkey, please add that option!
