Did you take some pictures for your blog the other day? Good. Make sure they are uploaded to your computer, and put them in an easy to find place, like your desktop...or a special folder.
Now open Picmonkey in your browser. You can only edit one thing at a time, but you can open multiple tabs in your browser if you want to have several photos going at a time.
There are some very basic steps that I've left out of this tutorial...if you need to know more, please email me or leave me a comment.
Upload your photo and then decide what shape you want the pic to be.
You can see from the above image that I chose a name for my file and the .png tab. This page also shows you the dimensions of your image and the file size. Always good to know.
Click Save to My Computer and follow through to save to your desktop location.
You are now ready to add your saved image(s) anywhere to your blog.
Now grab your sketch pad and start doodling for a fun new banner...what are you good at? Can you draw, paint, quilt etc? Use those mediums in your sketch. On Day 4 we will chat more about how to add hand drawn art to your blog for a more personalized look.
Coming up in our 2nd week: editing more photos and how to use on your blog and Pinterest!
