    Does it now cost money to use picmonkey? I've used it for free (no membership) until today. Now it won't work unless I join.

      Yes.  I posted about this a few weeks ago...but, you can have he basic program for just over $47 per year.  I was going to leave them but now think I'll just sign up because I really like how user friendly they are.  You can write the cost off on your taxes, which isn't much of a help,but at least is something.

    It looks like it requires a paid membership now, yes. Have you tried Canva? I use it for all of my hubs (and a lot of other projects too!) It's super simple to use and any other editing I do right through Irfanview.

      Thanks, Kierstin. It looks like it's time for me to switch. I've not heard of Canva but will check it out today.

    Were you using PicMonkey to create images? I'm loving UnSplash for free stock photos but there are many more awesome free stock sites out there too! There's a bunch of lists on Pinterest if you need more photos. The only thing about UnSplash is that you want to dig around for the least "loved" pics because many of them are in such heavy circulation right now that it can make our articles look unorginal.

    Yes, I got an email last week stating they were requiring all members new and old to do a "free trial" membership and then it will be a paid service - I think that's going to backfire for them, but oh well.  there's a lot of free alternatives that work well.  Gimp is a decent software, a bit of a learning curve, but comparable in a lot of ways to Photoshop.  Canva is ok too.

    Thanks, Christin. Too bad about picmonkey. I'm giving Canva and Gimp a try.

    I use Paint (not the Microsoft version!).  It's downloadable software, not online. I prefer that because I have limited bandwidth.
