I truly believe the images that appear on your blog or in your blog posts can make or break your blog. With the internet and especially social media becoming more and more visual, quality and professional images are what it’s going to take to stand out.

As a blogger and a virtual assistant I get asked A LOT how I make my images. People are often surprised when I tell them every image I create is done through PicMonkey. Photoshop is way too advanced for me and it takes too much time. There are so many ways you can get the same types of things that other photo sites and software do, on PicMonkey. It’s all in how you manipulate it and how creative you can get!

Another question I get asked is if I pay to use the extra features on PicMonkey. I do, however, I did not pay until this past year. I decided to pay because I run a business and I need the extras for when I work with clients. I felt I needed to have access to everything so I could do more with the graphics I create.

Does everyone need to purchase the Royale features? No, I don’t think you do. I was doing plenty without paying when I was using it in years past. However, if you are interested in paying to use all the extras, it’s actually pretty cheap.
