Today I want to share a helpful tip for my blogging friends! I love using circular pictures in my blog design, and I knew there had to be a way to create them using PicMonkey. I just love PicMonkey! I use it to edit all my blog photos and add text.
The best part is, you can do this with the free version of PicMonkey! I still use the free version myself. I’ve toyed with the idea of getting the paid version so I can have more fonts and options, but I just haven’t bit the bullet yet.
Step 1: Go to PicMonkey and choose a photo to edit. At the very top of the menu is “Basic Edits.” Find the crop option. Change the drop-down menu to “Square.” You can make the square bigger if needed.
Step 2: Under the “Frames” option on the menu, choose “Rounded Corners.”
Step 3: There are several options that show once you click “Rounded Corners.” Check the “Transparent Corners” box and move the “Corner Radius” all the way to the right.
Step 4: Save your picture as a .png or the corner’s won’t be transparent.
And that’s all there is to it! It’s such a quick edit to do, but it makes a big impact on your blog! If you are looking for more tips and tricks to help you improve your blog, be sure to check out my other blogging resources posts.
