Today I am going to show you how to create a circular photo in PicMonkey, the free program. This photo is from a recent photo shoot I did with these two adorable sisters, kids enjoy photos so much more when they can have some fun, so into the leaf pile they went .
This is a great way to add a little style to the bio-pic most of us have in our side bars or our about page or just add a little flair to a post page. There’s just something pleasing about a circle to the eye.
Step 1: Open the photo you will be making into a circle into the “Basic Edit” option, Choose “Crop”, and “Square” from the drop down menu, and position the square over the portion of the photo that will become the circle and hit “Apply”.
You will now have a nice, evenly sized, square photo.
Step 2: Choose the “Frames” option “Rounded Corner”.
Step 3: Move the “Corner Radius Bar” all the way to the right, and put a check mark in the “Transparent Corners” box. Hit “Apply”
Now you will have a nice round photo with a transparent background.
Now you will need to save your project and this is where you will change the dimensions to make your circle the size that works for you. Save it to your computer and apply it to your blog. How easy is that??? and if you are looking for other PicMonkey tutorials you can find them here.
