If you haven’t used PicMonkey yet, you’re going to love it! It’s so easy to use and it’s online, so you can access it anywhere.

Go to to get started. (Affiliate Link) They have a free version or you can upgrade to the fancy version for just $5 a month. I use the upgrade version because it allows me to have more font options and design options and it’s totally worth the $5 to me!

Before you get to PicMonkey to edit, you should have saved the image to your computer somewhere.

When you get to PicMonkey here is what you will see:

Select Edit and then choose your photo to edit from your computer.

It will open in a screen that looks like this:

That’s your area to work in to do your editing. From the left menu bar, select the Tt icon in order to add text. A new text box will pop open and you can type what you want there. Then, on the left menu bar again, you will select your font. You can choose from PicMonkey’s font options or from your own that are on your computer already.

You’ll also see a popup box that allows you to change the size, add things like italics if you want and change the color.

To move your text around, click on the actual text (see above) and then you can drag it to place it.

Then just add all your text. I usually do each line of text separately so that I can place it right where I want it.

One more thing to note-if you want to use an exact color from something else in your image, click on the color bar on the side of the text box:

Then use that little dropper icon to grab the color you want. Hover over the color and click it with the dropper. Screen Shot 2016-06-06 at 8.50.32 PM

And make your invitations or tags your own!
