Getting Images into Your Hub

Hub is PicMonkey’s cloud-based storage system. Everything you work on in PicMonkey is auto-saved to Hub while you work. There is no “save” option in PicMonkey because it is not necessary. (See more: Where do my files save?)

All subscribers have access to Hub. (See more: What is Hub?)

Every file you start and create inside PicMonkey will already be in Hub, but you can also add files to Hub from outside of PicMonkey—from your phone, your computer, and from third-party sources like Dropbox, OneDrive, Instagram, Flickr, Google Photos, Google Drive. To learn how to add photos from these sources, see: How Do I Get My Photos into PicMonkey to Edit?
