Today is Day 2 of Photo Tips & Tricks during the Boost Your Blog Challenge. Lots of bloggers want to have great looking photos but may not want to spend top dollar on photo editing software. Well, you will not have to spend a penny on two of my favorite ways to edit photos or create great collages for blog posts.
These photo editing programs are called iPiccy and PicMonkey. Both have free versions that allow for a wide range of photo editing possibilities. If you aren’t familiar with either of these do not be sad. We have basic tutorials for you from our guest bloggers!
I personally use BOTH just depends on my mood and what I am trying to achieve. Each program offers similar fonts, labels, cropping, and touch-up tools. Each program offers things in a slightly different manner. Try them both and you’ll see what I mean. I tend to use iPiccy for my collages more than Picmonkey. I was using Picmonkey for my Facebook Cover Photos since they had a collage already sized for cover photos!

I love how easy Picmonkey is. They have a decent number of fonts to choose from and a great color selection.

This was my first time using ipiccy and it was sooooo easy! I really liked it a lot. I will be using it tonight to make a collage! I am a seasoned pro on pic monkey, but sometimes I have to do a lot of work to get done what I just did in 5 minutes on ipiccy. Great challenge! I created a picture for a story I am writing. Excited about this app.
Have you tried iPiccy as well? I think both have great features but with different layouts one might be easier to use than the other.
I’ve done a little with PicMonkey. I think I’ll try iPiccy now.
