There are many reasons you will want to learn an editing program that will enable you to make your own graphics. Such programs include Canva, Photoshop, Adobe and PicMonkey. I use both Picmonkey and Canva as they offer different focuses. Picmonkey is strong in photoediting whereas Canva has amazing graphics and templates.
1/ Block poster is a wonderful program but it is limited in what you can create. Sizing is primarily determined by 8 x 11 sheets of paper. More importantly there is no option to create graphics or do any sort of editing to just name a few.
2/ With PicMonkey you can create any size of image you like and you can edit photos, add text, create layers and so much more.
3/ With PicMonkey you can save your files for later use in an internal area called the Hub.
4/ You can create amazing signs with varying fonts, sizes and add images and work in overlays. Programs like Word are unable to do this.
5/ In PicMonkey there are many ready made templates to choose from. Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Invitations and many more. You can add your own pictures and text and they are wonderful samples to work form.
In this tutorial we will go over how to make signs and simple graphics so that you may get started with your own designs. PickMonkey has much more to offer but for the purpose of our Embelishment Group, we will cover only those topics pertaining to what we are working on.
If you plan to be creating graphics or would like to create artwork for image transfers and sign making, then you really need to invest in a program. Picmonkey has certainly been worth the $12.99 I pay per month.
