Step Three: Click the Tt to get to text. You’ll see the PicMonkey texts as well as a tab that says “YOURS.” This section imports all text on your computer.
Step Four: After adding text you can also add graphics by clicking the butterfly. You can import your own from your computer, or use one of their many options. I chose the bird and then modified it by making it all white.
Step Five: Save this image to your computer and email (or bring it on a USB) to your local Staples (or print center). My wall art print cost less than $0.48 to print. I just had them copy it on regular copy paper since it was going behind glass, but you can also pay a tiny bit more and go for card stock.
Step One: Click “collage” on the PicMonkey homepage and select the pictures you want to use from your computer.
Step Two: You need to make this the right length and width on your own, since their aren’t proportion options on collage. To do this simply visit a inches to pixel converter (like this one) to find out how many pixels wide by how many long you’ll need for whatever size frame you’re using. (Use 200 DPI or higher for best image quality.)
Step Three: Under collage options, choose square deal.
Step Four: Start dragging your pictures in. I wanted all my pictures to be squares, like on instagram, so I dragged in another row. You can do this by simply bringing a photo over and letting it hover above or below a set cell and a new cell will appear.
Step Five: To make it even more “instagram” like, I wanted all my images to look like they had filters on them. When you hover over an image and “edit” button appear. Click this and select “effects.” I chose intrepid for all of mine. You can also click “open image in editor” to create even more filter options.
Step Six: Make sure your pixels are still correct and save to your desktop. Just like with the wall art, take this image to a local Staples or print shop and tell them what size you want it printed. Because mine was larger and in color, it was considered a “poster.” They printed and cut it for me all for under $5. That does it.
