Blank Canvases To Use With PicMonkey

Find blank images to get creative with in PicMonkey

More Blank Canvases

Hey folks! After writing the tutorial about creating your own post images in PicMonkey, I got to thinking you could use some "blanks" to get started with, especially if you're a little unsure of how to get going.

Below are two gray blanks and one white one. You can't see the white one but it is there (didn't want to put a line around it so it would be a nice blank canvas). Just right click in the blank space and save. It will show up as a white box when you upload to PicMonkey. You can resize these in PicMonkey if you need a certain pixel size box.

Questions about pixels? Just ask!

To save these blank boxes to your computer, just right click on the box and Save Image to your computer...then upload as Photos to PicMonkey.

300x300 GRAY

640x480 WHITE

640x480 GRAY
To make your gray boxes turn white in PicMonkey....click on:


Then move all the field sliders to 100...this will make your box turn white. Then click Apply. Now you have an all-white canvas to work with.


More tutorials coming soon on how to change these gray boxes to colorful ones...and how to add more overlays and merging. Have fun with the monkey!

  1. I guess it is time to sign up for the upgraded version of PicMonkey. I love the program but have been just using the freebies. Thanks for the "canvases"!

    1. I think they still have the $5 per month version if you want to just try it for 30 days. That's what I've done. I will probably end up upgrading again with the $33 for a whole year.

      Let me know if you use the canvases!

    1. You're welcome! Is there anything else that would be good? Maybe a circle?

  3. This is very helpful, Sarah! I usually just upload a picture and then do an overlay. Very nice to start from scratch with a blank slate.=) You are awesome!

    1. A few of you have started having this issue. It must be a change in Blogger. I will post a new blank header background in a new post.

    2. Hi Sarah - have you posted a new blank header yet? I'm having the same issue. my white box turns out grey when added (for my signature on posts).

    3. I was having this same issue, and I fiiiinally figured it out. You just have to save the image as a .png instead of a .jpg on picmonkey!
