For those of us without fancy photo editing software or graphic design expertise, there is PicMonkey. PicMonkey is a free online photo editor that allows you edit photos, make collages, and add text to your photos. What you may not know is that there is a simple way to make text images with PicMonkey without using photos.
PicMonkey is very easy to use, but you need an image to get beyond the homepage and access all the editing tools. So, to bypass that step, I created a large white .jpeg image in Paint to use as my background in PicMonkey.
To create my blank white .jpeg image I used Paint, which is located in the Accessories pull down menu in Windows. In Paint I created a large white image that 1,000 pixels by 1,000 pixels, and saved it to my desktop to use in PicMonkey when ever I need it. Once in PicMonkey I can crop that image to whatever size I need.
OK, so know that we know how to create a blank white image let’s create a text image in PicMonkey.
On the homepage of PicMonkey click on “edit a photo” and choose the blank white image you just created.
Crop your blank white image to the desired size.
Click on the text icon to the left in the basic edits section, then begin to choose and place your fonts. There is even a few images and borders you can use. So get creative and have fun.
When you are done you can upload, save, and even share you image.
Tomorrow I will share the project I made using a text image I made in PicMonkey.
