A fellow blogger, Clara, suggested to me that I make a post telling you guys how to make GIFs! WordPress bloggers probably know that you can’t put videos on unless you buy the upgrade. But you can, however, put GIFs on! Continue reading “Tutorial: How to Easily Make a Custom GIF”

Photo Fill-In Using PicMonkey & Paint

Hey guys! Today I have a tutorial for you. 🙂

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. 😉

Ready? 😀


 

  1. Go to Bing (well, I guess you could use Google…) and type in ‘____ outline’. For this tutorial I typed in ‘bunny outline’. 🙂 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 usually.pt 1.PNG 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 saved.pt 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 photo and then go PicMonkey.com. Click ‘Edit’ and open your photo.pt 5.PNG
  6. Once your photo pops up, click the little overlay icon which looks like a butterfly.  pt 6.PNG
  7. Click ‘Your Own’ and select the photo you want to use to fill it. 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! 🙂
