Affordable Phot Editing Software Compared to the Big Names Out There

Reviewed on 18/8/2022

Overall, I'm happy with this software. User-friendly and all.

Overall, I'm happy with this software. User-friendly and all.

Pros

Saves me money and still gets the job done compared to some of the known alternatives which I won't touch on. This is much easier and faster to use.

Cons

You may encounter issues with the login options, other than that, it's a beast!

Affordable photo editing software

I successfully edited many photos with picmonkey, and I created social media ads for my business.
While there weren't as many tools as I wanted and the library wasnt as vast as I would like, I was happy with the outcome of my work on Picmonkey. I created our first logo with Picmonkey and customers complimented me on it many times.

Pros

Picmonkey provides most basic photo editing tools, crop, filter, collage maker, etc.
A library of templates is available, to edit templates a drag and drop feature is provided. There is a faunt library and text can be manipulated with shadowing or curvature.
Cloud storage is available and your Picmonkey files can be accessed from any device when you log in.
Files can be shared to most social media or through email.
Picmonkey is not hard to use, customer support is provided. Updates and improvements are made occasionally, recently background remover was added.

Cons

Picmonkey does not rank high for me in tools or library quality.
I have used other software with many more editing tools provided, and more options within those tools (for example more filters in the filter tool).
To download any of your work you'll need to pay for a subscription. The cheaper subscription on Picmonkey provides the same as the free version of other software.

Picmonkey's one feature that Canva can't get right!

I enjoy using Picmonkey for my product mockup. I wish they would add more graphics and allow you to save your uploaded images.

Pros

I LOVE LOVE Picmonkey's shadow features. I've been using it to make all the shadows for my product mockup because Canva didn't have it. And when they introduced it, it was not consistent. Picmonkey's ability to do shadows with multiple images and how it doesn't disappear when you drag and drop a new image into the existing image is a lifesaver for me. I will love Picmonkey forever for this one feature.

Cons

They don't have measurements of your images so it's annoying to judge and adjust the sizing in the canvas. I also don't like that they don't save your uploaded images as Canva does. That would make life so much easier.
