Psssst.... I need your help....

Hampton Inn, Bradenton Riverfront built in 1920

Above is out of the camera 

Below see the changes from  2 click edit in PicMonkey. 
Scroll up and down to see the difference
If you click photo to enlarge you can see how much difference the edit makes.
The sun was shining on the other side, causing the building to be in the shade.
2 clicks and instant sunlight was added.




Up..out of the camera... below 2 clicks in Edit in PicMonkey



Many of you know that I am a PicMonkey addict.

I use it to edit all my photos. PicMonkey has a lot of free membership, and then there are extra benefits  that come with a paid Royale membership.

I am a Royale member, and I received an email from PicMonkey that says I can win a free week of PicMonkey Royale if 3 friends try it  using THIS LINK......

PLUS you will win a free day of Royale, which allows you to use the edits that come with a paid subscription.



If you are not a member, please visit and use the software using THIS LINK to PicMonkey.. and then post your photo phun on your blog and show us what you did.

It's TOMORROW!!!!! Mayoress Madi's Queen of Hearts Dance for Valentine's Day is tomorrow!!! See the Valentine dancers Here andat Madi and Mom..

I like what you made with these photos, they look a lot 'warmer' with the effects and got a bit clearer too, especially the one with the window reflections.
I use Picmonkey quite a lot as well and I like it.

Happy Thursday Sandra!

Really effective for this photo, Sandra! Nicely done!

I shoot my photos in raw so need to use Lightroom, but I can see the PicMonkey does a great job.

You can really tell the difference it makes in the window shot- that is awesome!

Blackberry Lane said...

Wow, the edits make such a difference. I will try to do this...no guarantee that I will understand how!

Montanagirl said...

I like your edits. They sure improved your photos! I use PicMonkey now and then too.

Cranberry Morning said...

Yep, I'm a PicMonkey fan and use it occasionally, although my other editing program (ancient) works pretty well for most things. You're the one who first told me about PicMonkey!

Deb said...

TexWisGirl said...

The edits definitely make for a better picture. Now I will go and click on that link.

Rebecca said...

I do it the old fashioned painstaking way, but your edits turned out very nice.

I will give it a try just to get you your 3 people.

The window images have a little lens distortion, which is normal, I'll have to see if they have anything to correct that!! If so I will really be impressed.

aww! that's too cute!
love the kitty queen!
nice edits,sandra. i love using picmonkey for quick edits.

Chatty Crone said...

I love that kitty Queen!

Willow said...

You are always such fun ~ and you got me hooked on Pic Monkey !

Ann said...

Did you get your three clicks yet? Those 2 click edits are great. What a difference that made.

No time to go play today but I can click your link tomorrow.

Rose said...

okay. I used one of the links....hope it helps you out!

SquirrelQueen said...

I like that you changed the sun to the other side of the building, it really warms up the shot. I always have to sharpen and "polish" window shots.

I'm not sure if I want to use any photo editing program again for awhile. If you still need a click in a few days remind me.

Dee said...

I would be lost with out picmonkey...I love the sun edit.

S. Etole said...

You do a great job with the edits. Hope you were able to get a free week.

DawnTreader said...

I like the edit of the window, less sure about the added sunlight to the whole building. Dressed up dogs and cats not my favourites in any context, but you're certainly getting good at using the program creatively.
