When you have a website, photos are oftentimes one of the most difficult parts of creating your website or adding to it. Stock photos are generic, boring and expensive and you don't want to risk copyright infringement on other free photos you may find. Or, you have photos of your own you want to use but you want to put the name of your business on it or modify it in some other way. Well, PicMonkey is the answer for you!
Oh! And those pesky facebook cover photos! It's so hard to create the right size photo, right? Well, never fear, PicMonkey is the answer for you there too!
Did I say it's FREE?

Step 2: Choose what you want to do: Edit a photo, Create a collage or Design which is creating a brand new photo. With both create a collage and design you have options for a Facebook Cover Photo.
Step 3: Upload the photos you want to use. The can be clipart, photos of your business, previously used stock photos that you want to reuse etc.
