How to White Out Your Photos Exclusively Using Picmonkey

Lots of people don't have the budget for photoshop... but I think I can safely say all of us LOVE the free alternatives (Pickmonkey) While Picmonkey doesn't have the same advance editing capabilities as photoshop, you can still make your photos pop by giving them a white background using curves and clone. 

This may not be the everyday look you will want for all of your photos, but this technique is one I like to use to white out my backgrounds and make web graphics pop.

(note: since Picmonkey is no longer 100% free,  try Ipiccy, which is free, and offers very similar tools)

♥ Winter Wonderland Trees

These are the "Winter Wonderland Trees" I made for my December wedding. It's a great way to dress up an event without a pricey tag.
