Take a Peek at the All-New PicMonkey

All of us here at PicMonkey HQ are extremely pleased to announce the latest and greatest version of our desktop editor, a lil’ something we’re calling New PicMonkey. Like the PicMonkey you know and love, New PicMonkey is a user-friendly photo editing and graphic design tool—but we’re taking it up about 20 notches. Get ready for an all-around faster and more powerful experience. New PicMonkey is currently in Beta (meaning we’re still ironing out some wrinkles) but here’s a quick glimpse into some of the goodness you can look forward to.

Creativity, unleashed

New PicMonkey’s got all the heft and design chops of those complicated professional tools, but without the confusion and frustration. It was built to be as powerful as your strongest creative impulses and as flexible as the bounds of your imagination.

You can also start with any part of your design, including a photo. Make whatever edits you wish and then just separate your photo from the background to use it as part of a larger design.

You can now apply effects, adjustments, and textures to anything on your canvas, from graphics, to text, to images, to the background of the canvas itself.

Love the edits you applied, but suddenly not feeling your image? Right-click to replace it and your new pic will have all the same edits applied.

Create looks you could only dream about before, like masking an image with a graphic. You can do it insanely fast with the texture tool.

Beautiful designs, fast

Our smart, easy-to-use tools make cranking out designs a breeze. Perfect for the deadline-pressed and anyone who likes having more time in their day for woolgathering.

Try out different looks in a snap when you group the elements in your design together. Now it just a few clicks you can see different effects, textures, and colors.

Have one design but need six different sizes for social? Our amazing, expandable canvas allows you to quickly change the size of your design without distorting the objects in your design. Now that’s a magic way to resize.

Re-type text with the same changes applied. This is great if you want to make a quick copy tweak, or a different version of the same design. When you edit the text in a text box anything you applied to it will still be applied to the new text. This includes textures, effects, and even erasing.

A tool that grows with you

Whether you’re new to the design space or are certified graphic design wizard, this product’s got lots to love. We’re building in-product help and tutorials to guide newbies on their journey to design mastery, and old pros can dive right into our powerful tools. And, per uszhe, we’re also cooking up loads of inspiration and tips to try out on our blog.
