When you access the site four boxes appear on screen; three filled with images you may edit. The fourth represents an image of your own to edit by uploading from your computer. When you import your image a new screen appears with your picture front and center.
The thirty-seven current effects are sorted into tried and true, basic, camera look, paintbox, area, artsy and advanced. Fifteen touch-ups for skin, mouth, eyes and just a couple more are at the ready. Fonts, thirty-two to be exact, can be added to your images. Overlays or shapes come in twenty-two options. There are eight frames from which to choose. And seven new textures are available to try.
In the third photograph I applied the effects of soften, dark edges and film grain.
In this final image I added some text which you can size, change the color, fade, make bold or in italics, justify and blend modes or right click for even more options. I also added a drop shadow frame. Some of the options will become part of the Royale package eventually but for now they are free, if you don't mind having a crowned monkey in your graphic.
It's safe to say that PicMonkey has my vote as a worthy photo editing tool. I could have spent hours trying all the options for images.
