Image Editing – Nonprofit Tech Tools

Welcome the first issue our our new series “Nonprofit Tech Tools”.   We are very excited to be kicking off this new series on the blog and think its going to be a great resource for nonprofits.

How did we come up with the idea for this new series?  Folks kept asking us about what software and technology tools they should use.  Pretty simple really.  As we talked with folks we realized that most nonprofits really did not know what tools were available and if they did they were totally overwhelmed by all of the choices and which ones were worth their time and effort.

So, in this series we are going to highlight some of our favorite nonprofit technology tools, everything from software to online tools that we think will make your job and life easier.

In today’s installment we are going to dive into image editing.  This is an area that I see many, many nonprofits struggle with as image editing can get very technical.  Have you ever tried to learn Adobe PhotoShop?  You practically need a Masters degree in engineeringPicMonkey.com to figure out that program, and the other options out there are just as difficult to learn or don’t really do what you want them to do.

Enter our savior…. PicMonkey.com
