Top 5 Photo Editing Tools and Give-away Winner Reveal!

Happy Friday my fabulous friends! Thank you for stopping by my blog. I truly appreciate everyone who stops by and reads my posts. What are your weekend plans? Are you going to work on your blog? If so, I have five photo editing tools that you surely will find useful, the list is in no particular order:

1. PicMonkey, is one of my favorite photo editing applications. It not only provides a wide variety of collage layouts, but you can edit your images, re-size, crop them and put different layers on top of the images. The collage layout features a way for you to create your own Facebook cover image. I found it pretty useful, especially when you don't want to spend money upfront when you are starting your Facebook page. Another bonus: you can download photos from your computer, Facebook, DropBox and One Drive.

2. Pixlr is one of the more popular photo editing tools and best comparable to PhotoShop. The application is available on Chrome for free and has the dashboard you will be familiar with from PhotoShop. This app works with layers, so you can edit images, add and remove details, etc. just like you would in PhotoShop.

3. Canva, I have used Canva a few times, the part that I don't particularly care for is the fact that you are forced into logging in with either your Facebook account or your email. However, once you get over the sign-in requirement you will be positively surprised with all the features this photo app holds. One of my favorites is that you can edit, create and share a Facebook post right from the dashboard of Canva.

4. Photovisi, if you are looking for a fun platform to create a collage, then Photovisi will be your favorite tool. It is very easy to use and you have a variety of layouts that can be customized to your needs. You can see an example of how I used this app in one of my earlier posts about CB2 new fall collection. 

5. is great if you are looking for an application that will allow you to add watermarks to your images. This is especially useful if you have had people use your photos without your permission. They might not link back to your blog, but at least your images will now carry your blog's name with this handy tool. Another reason I like Polarr is the ability to toggle between different images. Also, the tool allows you to easily preview photos with the application of the different layers.

Have you been using any of these tools or do you maybe use different ones? I would love to hear from you! Which is your favorite photo editing tool that you use for your blog? Please share in the comments!
