New, New, New Features to Love

It’s harvest season: time to go out into the fields and pick ripe features to bring home and gorge on. Wanna know what’s new at PicMonkey? Pull up a chair and grab a fork.

Advanced Levels feature

Levels is kinda like Curves, with training wheels. It lets you adjust the color, contrast, and tonal range of your image using three sliders and a histogram. A histogram is a graphic representation of the pixels in your image. It displays the contents of your image as a pile of pixels (often referred to as the tonal range). If you’ve used levels adjustments before, you probably know the drill. If not, don’t be afraid! Here’s a quick and easy explainer.

Before-and-after button

The new before and after button gives you a view of your original image, so you can compare your edits to the original, make sure you’ve fixed what you wanted to fix without going too far, and get an instantly fresh perspective to see if you missed anything. At last, you can go back and forth like a not-mind-making-up person, if that’s part of your creative process.

Improved exposure

The Exposure tool (Basic Effects tab) has been improved. Now the Brightness, HighlightsShadows, and Contrast sliders have double the range.

And you can now double click on any slider you’ve been adjusting to automatically reset it!

New fontz

Yaaaas, friends, the font of fonts has been geysering. We’ve got a bunch of beauties for you. Have a look-see.

And finally, we added a couple new sizes to the Crop tool: iPhone 6 and Pinterest.

Have fun with the new features and let us know how you like them, will ya?
