Most of the time, I think editing photos is a whole lot of fun. So when PicMonkey (my go-to site for quick photo fixes) came out with their Halloween editing features, I was pretty excited.
(And no, they aren't paying me to say this. I'm just a fan.)
Last year I shared Picnik's Hallween photo editing, but that site has since sadly closed. However, the creators of Picnik opened a new site that is even better -- picmonkey.com. They have so many more options than Picnik ever had.
I'm not going to go into the details of how I edited these pictures because there is too much to go over and most of it is easy to figure out. But I do want to show a little bit of what's out there.
The new Halloween features they have are:
- Day of the Dead
- Trick or Treat
Here's a "before and after" of me becoming a zombie.
And a vampire wedding picture!
One thing I would suggest as you check out each effect, is to be sure to click the little light bulb icon in the corner. I didn't notice it for a while, but it does give you ideas on how best to use the effect.
If you have a family gallery wall in your home, I think it would be fun to edit the same pictures with some of these effects and replace them for the Halloween season.
I think I'll change my Facebook profile picture to my zombie picture and see if anybody notices!
