Color Splash Your Photos for Extra Vibrancy
Every image has a focal point, but sometimes you want to emphasize that focal point to the nth degree. Enter: color splash. When you use PicMonkey’s color splash tools, you can easily highlight the most important part(s) of your photo and create striking contrast.
How to get the color splash look
Open your image in PicMonkey’s editor. Upload from your desktop or import directly from Instagram. Or, choose from millions of royalty-free pics in our stock photo library.
Your best starting point for any color splash design is using one of our Black and White photo effects. Find them under Effects and apply to your image.
Use the eraser tool to remove B&W from the area that you want to have pop with color. Adjust your saturation level with the Fade slider.
An amazing image like this HAS to be shared. Download your design or share it directly to email or your social media channels.

Use extra effects for imagery that pops
The fun don’t gotta stop when you’re playing with color. If you’re a fan of the perfect kind of extra, then experiment with our unique photo effects for an even intenser look.
