Pros
IT is really nice that I don't have to have a subscription to a professional tool like Adobe Indesign to be able to make meaningful graphics for my business.

It is great if you're looking for variety, this software contains beautiful textures which is great if you're looking to stand out.

Cons
I dislike that I would have to pay to use the premium features, but I understand why. I probably would pay if I needed to use it more often.

The worst thing about this app is the login options. Since it's new upgrade, the login has gotten really tacky.

But if they just fix their log in problems, it'd be a beast.

Images Turn Out Lovely When Using PicMonkey

Reviewed 9 months ago

There are so many templates to play around with that I literally have to dedicate a whole day to picking out which one does it for me the most. PicMonkey bought out the photo-editing genius in me that I never knew existed because I usually take video-editing seriously, photos were never really my thing but now they totally are.

Pros

I have been making amazing photo projects as of late with this software. I upload my image into the program, I fine-tune my exposure settings, I add an effect or two just to see how much better my image can become, then I just play around with some of their touch-up tools to make the image really stand out and Voilà, I got me a masterpiece.

Cons

Something bizarre keeps happening when I use PicMonkey though. It just freezes. In making sure that it wasn't anything on my end I tried it on 3 different PCs and the the same result would happen eventually. One time it happened when I was working on an image for about 3 hours, of course silly me, I hadn't saved my work yet so I had to start all over again which was a huge bummer. They might want to look into that.

There are better options out there

Reviewed a month ago
Pros

I was able to create my graphics for my business.

Cons

It doesn't have as much functionality as a competitor that I switched to (Canva) and both are about the same price. Pic Monkey is kind of clunky to use.

PicMonkey is a critical resource for my job

Reviewed 3 months ago

PicMonkey has helped increase revenues due to the click through rates I've achieved. It would have taken an inordinate amount of time to do this with other tools.

Pros

Ease of use. Time to value. Pricing. Flexibility. My work with PicMonkey has helped me achieve outstanding click through results.

Cons

I use a combination of tools. Often, I want to change colors. Although PicMonkey includes a color wheel, I use other tools to source the actual hex color codes. "Pink" just doesn't cut it for me when their is such an array and in my view, you need to be specific & get it right.
