There are so many great photo-editing programs available online these days. Most bloggers know about PicMonkey, Canva, Gimp, iPiccy, Pixlr, and of course Adobe’s Photoshop, but did you know about Ribbet?

Ribbet was introduced to me in Amy Lynn Andrew’s useletter over a year ago. I started using it for some of my images because it had certain features that I liked more than PicMonkey’s features. I primarily use PicMonkey and Ribbet for all of my photo editing.

Ribbet is the online image editor formerly known as Picnik. It was completely free until a couple of weeks ago when they introduced their free version and the ability to upgrade to the premium version. Even if you never upgrade, you can use many of the editing capabilities. However, I knew I had to upgrade to the premium account for a few reasons:

  • It will store my pictures in the cloud, and I can edit it later. You can find all the pictures you ever saved under the “History” tab.

I can click on the gear symbol of the last picture I made for that party, click on the edit, and then change the text or whatever else I want to change.

Ribbet says on their Facebook page that they have started to charge for the Premium features so that they can make “some incredible advancements to Ribbet, both for free and paying users. Some of these improvements include the upcoming Fancy Card feature, improved dynamic grid collages, a more modern look and feel with multiple themes and background grids, and Ribbet apps for mobile devices.”

If their dynamic grid collages improve, I may never visit PicMonkey again.  For all my roundups and featured posts, I need to be able make my collages fit the different sizes of my photos, and I was not able to find a way to do this with Ribbet’s collages. However, if you need a quick and fast collage, they have many templates available. I made the following collage using Ribbet.
