Using PicMonkey To Improve & Lighten Your Photos

Pin It
As far as I am concerned, PicMonkey is one of the easiest tools to use when it comes to manipulating your photos. One of the biggest problems I see with product shots and blank backgrounds in photos is that they can look a not so fifty shade of grey if not shot in the correct light.

Research actually shows that photo viewers prefer a white background (also known as white space). WHITE not various shades of grey.

So when it comes to capturing professional looking images, sorry to say folks, but grey is just not going to cut the mustard... especially if you are trying to sell something or show something off in it's best light (pardon the pun).

Luckily, there is a really easy way to lighten and brighten the background in your photos, using PicMonkey, and although I totally suck at giving instructions, I am going to forge ahead and try to show you anyway.

STEP 1

OK, so start by opening PicMonkey on your desktop and click on Edit to upload your photo. Then (hopefully) it is just a matter of following the instructions I have put together for you below.

Give it a go, I would love to hear how it works for you.

If you are interested, here's some other PicMonkey Tutorials I have put together earlier too.
