Photo Fill-In Using PicMonkey & Paint

**Note: PicMonkey is no longer free like it was when I wrote this post, but I honestly think it’s still worth paying for because it gives you so many design and editing options in an easy-to-use format. That said, if you’d like to sign up then feel free to do so through this link because PicMonkey gives me a bit if you do. :)**

Hey guys! Today I have a tutorial for you. πŸ™‚

To make this you will need two programs: Paint, and PicMonkey.

This is what your thing will look like, with customized outline and photo fill. πŸ˜‰


Ready? πŸ˜€


  1. Go to Bing (well, I guess you could use Google…) and type in ‘____ outline’. For this tutorial I typed in ‘bunny outline’. πŸ™‚ Choose a good outline, one that looks like the one below. It doesn’t have to be transparent, (that’s the checkerboard behind it) but it works a little better 1.PNGΒ The rabbit image was from this site.
  2. Save the picture to your computer and then open the Paint app. pt 2.PNG
  3. Click file, then click open, and select the image you just 3.PNG
  4. Select the paint bucket tool. pt 4.PNG
  5. Fill the outside part with black. Yes, it has to be black. Save your photoΒ and then go Click ‘Edit’ and open your 5.PNG
  6. Once your photo pops up, click the little overlay icon which looks like a butterfly.Β  pt 6.PNG
  7. Click ‘Your Own’ and select the photo you want to use to fill it.Β pt 7.PNG
  8. Make the photo big enough so that it covers the whole rabbit (or whatever you are using). pt 8.PNG
  9. See the little box that says Overlays? Click on the word Normal. When the box drops down, click ‘Darken’.pt 9.PNG
  10. Ta-da! Now all you have to do is save it!

These are really fun to make and they look so neat! πŸ™‚

      1. Haha, I don’t know if I’m very good at that. XD But, as she seen the cool Bing homepage? I like that they showcase a different photo every day!
        Bing Rewards is so cool. I save up my credits and redeem Amazon giftcards. I’ve purchased about $145 worth of stuff with my credits! That’s kind of crazy, actually.

      2. Why would anyone use Bing or Google when there’s Duck Duck Go? They don’t track you online, and the name alone is reason to use it! (The pics look really cool, by the way.)


  1. I made a couple of these with a polar bear outline. They’re really fun! And to add to the search engine conversation, Bing is definitely better than Google, and Duck Duck Go is probably better than Bing(for Rapunzel’s reason). But I still use Bing so I can earn credits. πŸ™‚
