“PicMonkey’s technology is simple to use and you don’t have to be a professional photographer to add a level of sophistication to your photos.
Appleton, WI (PRWEB) November 19, 2014
Just in time for the holiday shopping season, on-line stationery and gift retailer Ruvacards today announced its ability for customers to use free in-browser editing and design capabilities through picmonkey.
Named by PC Magazine as one of the Top 100 Websites of 2013, PicMonkey is an online photo editing service headquartered in Seattle, Washington, which was founded by two former engineers, Brian Terry and Justin Huff.
The seamless collaboration will allow Ruvacards’ customers to load their photos from their computers, smart phones, Facebook, Flickr and Dropbox, and once they hit the edit button it will take them to the PicMonkey site where they’ll be able to use all the effects and editing tools. There’s no additional software to download or learn and it’s completely free to use.
Customers will have the ability to whiten teeth, eliminate red eye, soften wrinkles and skin, and add effects to their photos—all without leaving their browser window. This kind of sophisticated retouching, typically only found with the additional purchase of software like Photoshop®, will be available to customers while they are designing their customized cards and gifts.
“We want to create an easy experience for our customers, so they not only come to us for their holiday cards, but also for every family milestone in their lives,” said Cindy Coughlin, owner and founder of Ruvacards.
She went on to add, “PicMonkey’s technology is simple to use and you don’t have to be a professional photographer to add a level of sophistication to your photos. We’ve all been there at some point in our lives—trying to get the kids to look at the camera, the dog to smile, and in the flurry of the moment, Dad’s finger winds up in the photo. Now with PicMonkey, you just don’t have to worry about the perfect photo. Every photo can be close to perfect. We are really excited to offer this kind of technology to our customers.”
