PicMonkey Is A Great Photo Editor
I took a “selfie” tonight with a flash since I was in a dark room. I was merely trying to take a photo of my newly dyed hair. But then I thought – I love this photo if I could just clean it up.
A flash can be harsh and I was getting ready for bed so the photo was an untouched photo. Normally, I use a professional photo editing service.
This is the original:
Up front I will state that none of the enhancements were major – anything I did, I also faded out quite a bit. I didn’t want anything overwhelming.
These are the steps to the final image:
I airbrushed my skin a little to just even everything out
Added some slight color to my lips – you can barely see it but I also wanted to even it out
Used wrinkle remover to smooth out some of the spots on my face – they are tiny but I still wanted them smooth
Brightened my eyes
Reduced some of the shine on my cheeks, nose and chin
Added some green to my eyes
Added a dusk feature
That may seem like a lot of steps but they are very quick and in some cases even under the same option. The end result is this…
And side by side so you can see just how different.
Now I know there are paid photo editing products out there that can do so much more but PicMonkey is free. I do have the annual version that I pay for, which isn’t much. But I love how quickly and easily I can turn nothing into something and it is so easy to use even my kids use it all the time.
