Most blog owners are not professional graphic designer who can expertly use software like Photoshop.
And instead of using Photoshop for this purpose, I suggest an online picture editing tool “Picmonkey” that can help you create a very simple and compelling graphics or images to your website.
Picmonkey is a very simple and easy online picture editing tool in which anybody can edit their images in almost no time with it. The best part:
- you don’t need to install it on your PC
- most of the features are simple
- you don’t need a lot of training before using it.
However, if you need some initial training before using it, you can download the free copy of the user guide I have put together.
Let’s go back on how to apply borders and shadows to your images, please follow this step by step procedure:
- Go to the PicMonkey website, click on ‘Edit’ to upload an image
- Once the image is uploaded, on the left hand navigation, click on “Frames” to add borders and shadow styles to the image.
- In Picmonkey, you can use a lot of border and shadow styles such as rounded corners, simple edge, drop shadows etc.
