New for August 2021

One-click background remover (version 1.19)

The magical one-click background eraser that you've been using on desktop to fulfill all of your design dreams has officially come to the PicMonkey mobile app for Android! Open a photo, tap BG REMOVER, and see the magic at work.

Remember, this is a PicMonkey Pro feature, and totally worth the upgrade.

New for July 2021

Premium effects (version 1.18.12)

Pro subscribers have 10 new premium effects: Portrait, Monochrome, Spectrum, Bluebird, Classic Blue, Red Hot, Cyber, LightPastel, Pastel, and Autumn.

Portrait does what any good people-focused photo should: makes 'em pop. Capture the perfect black and white look with Monochrome. Spectrum takes things an entirely different direction — buckle up before using!

If you're looking for effects that are cool, calm, and collected, opt for Bluebird or Classic Blue. On the opposite end sit Red Hot and Cyber. LightPastel and Pastel kinda hang in the middle, keeping things light and airy. Autumn throws a bit of early fall color into the mix. You do you, and remember that you can control your effect's intensity. Just tap and drag the effect slider to increase or decrease its look.

If you're not a Pro subscriber, we're still spreading the love with two new free effects: Twilight and Mist. Both offer their own subtle vibes so that you can take your pics from great to greatest!

Now that we're off and running again, make sure to check this page often for new updates. And whenever you share your masterpiece designs to social media, add a #picmonkey to your post!

On your desktop or in the palm of your hand, design ANYWHERE with a PicMonkey subscription.
