PicMonkey Bombs..

Most of you know of my love affair with the photo edit program
I received the above Warning in my email that my charge number FAILED and my PicMonkey would expire in 2 days.
OH NO IS RIGHT... it was an easy fix and all is well..

I am still receiving my PM bombs. they are tutorials that come in my email. Sometimes I am aware and sometimes it teaches me new things. Like Dodge and Burn in today's email.... I knew this because of Photo Shop, but thought some of you might not.... Dodge and Burn is free even if you are not a member.

See the difference in Jakes eye that was to dark? I used only Dodge to lighten it, and a little burn also.. Dodge lightens and Burn darkens. I use this almost every day

I really should get pic monkey. What you did with that photo is something I have often wished I could do. I will see if it is complicated to learn.

Jo said...

Gosh- that's way over my head..I can crop and lighten and brighten and mess with the color a bit. I would probably flunk picmonkey school. You are brilliant!

Ginny said...

WOW. I watched the tutorial and for ME, it is kind of hard...knowing what size brush, then he said to click it every once in awhile...I am kind of lost. But it is different so I will watch it again. I do love the tutorial e-mail idea! How much is it per month? I can see just what you did to Jake, it is cool. Before, it looks like he only had one eye.

Did you know if your own eyes are dark.

There is at Costco a product called
Kirkland Signature Intensive serum . They are in a white like lipstick container. About two lipstick size long has a wee pump. only need a wee drop to do two eyes. Pretty good. If anyone is younger then 70. For sure it will do the trick.
Use ring finger a tap some on your
eyes. If you have bags or dark eyes.

I thought of it now when you showed the change you did with the dog Jake in The Tutorial.

I know you do not wear make up Sandy. When I go out. To friends house or to dinner. I love to wear the under-liner help aid and make up I wear. Eyeliner. The whole nine yards. For me.

To those gals who like to wear make up going out to work. This is real nice lightener to those under lines or bags. As we get in our 60 and over. We feel sometimes we need this. In summer most gals are brown and have great color. Do not need it as much.

Oh sorry this is your blog.You can delete.

Glad it was an easy fix for your picmonkey. Did you have a little anxiety attack when you first saw that? :)
I know how to use the dodge and burn tools but don't use them often. I really should try and use all those tools more

Catherine said...

Glad you got it all figured out!
Have a happy week Sandra!

Love it and glad that you enjoy it so much - you are worlds ahead of me in tech land!

Linda said...

You and your crazy monkeys!!
I use Ribbit but I don't do the fancy stuff YOU do!!
My Google account was about to expire and I had to do the same thing - hurry over there and fix it! I can't be without that Google storage thingy!!!

SweetMarie said...

It does make a difference and you're good with it! I only crop my photos. I need to learn photoshop for some of my personal photos. :)
Hope you had a relaxing weekend...

Deb said...

Well now I have to try it! Yeah I didn't know what it was used for I always learn something new from you Sandra

That Dodge and Burn looks very interesting. I like how it lightened up Jake's eye.
