Snazz up your photos with PicMonkey

Have you heard of the photo-editing website called PicMonkey.com? It’s my favorite way to perk up my knitting photography.

I took Gale Zucker’s web seminar, Photo Editing for Knitters: Use Online Software to Make Your Digital Photos Fabulous, when it debuted last year. I learned so much; I’ve really become a PicMonkey devotee. I use it to sharpen up my images, crop them, adjust color, add text, add banners, not to mention the collage feature. The site is just great.

Check out Gale’s before and after photos:

Gale’s web seminar is fantastic. You’ll learn the ins and outs of PicMonkey, plus many little tricks and insider techniques to really make your photos pop. Pretty cool, right?

Gale is a professional photographer who specializes in knitting photography, so she knows exactly how to use this powerful tool to make your project and yarn photos really sing. Her recommended adjustments and editing steps will help you make your photos the best that they can be. Gale will cover the complete process of editing a photo, from choosing the best photo to work with, to straightening, cropping, adjusting overall exposure, and then making smaller improvements such as reducing shadows, removing blemishes, fixing colors, adding warmth, and adding blurring to mimic depth of field.

I can’t recommend this web seminar highly enough. Do yourself and your photos a favor and register now! Join Gale and me on Thursday, May 21 at 1 pm Eastern Time for Photo Editing for Knitters: Use Online Software to Make Your Digital Photos Fabulous. Will you be there?

Cheers,
