Add gradients to text layers!
PicMonkey subscribers can now add nifty gradient color schemes to text layers. Choose from dozens of preset gradient color swatches, or create your own gradient with up to 3 colors.
And just like before, you can continue adding gradient colors to graphics, backgrounds, photos, shadows and outlines.
Our new watermark tool is here!
This PicMonkey Pro & Business feature offers a ton of flexibility: choose where your watermark goes (you have 9 options), and customize its size, rotation, and transparency.
Videos and GIFs? Watermark those too.

Oh my gradient!
We've added gradient choices to many of our color pickers so you can add luminous color transitions instead of just a flat color to: graphics, backgrounds, photos, shadows and outlines.
Classic gradient effects like Ombre and Gradient just got some new superpowers too, and Tint joined the pack with its own grandiloquent grad-iosity.
New variations have been added to our animation effects (a Pro feature) so that you have more control over how they move.
Each effect comes with its own variations in speed and placement. Not a Pro subscriber? See what PicMonkey Pro has to offer!
We're dishing out updates this month like Oprah dishes out cars:
Printing: Set crop and bleed marks before sending your design to a local printer.
Multi-page: Download specific pages or page ranges from your projects.
Layer locking: Lock individual design layers as you work to prevent accidental movement (a clutch tool for creating multi-layered designs).
There's more on the way — check back soon!
