What is "Picmonkey" and why is it written that I used it?

posted January 2nd, 2017
I use Lightroom CC for the post-production of my photos, but in the details of my photos (just three so far, because I'm a new member) I found: "Edit Photo: with Pickmonkey".
Why?

Thanks.

If you already uploaded the photo, and some people commented on it, and THEN you notice something you definitely want to fix (crop, put a frame on it etc..), there is an option to do it with Picmonkey - this will not delete your photo and all the comments that came to it (as would happen if you upload a new one instead). Instead, it will gently replace your picture with the edited version, preserving all the comments and favs you might have gotten so far. I hope it makes sense.

Ace members can use the Picmonkey on-line editor to further edit their images after they have been posted. All you have to do is click on the word Picmonkey and you will be taken to the site but the link is not active for non-Ace members. Hope this helps...

There're a lot of softwares to do that. I don't need advertisement in the details of my photos.

@paolop Welcome to 365, and it's not an advertisement, Paolo. Ross has said in notes over4 past years that it's a gift to Ace members for additional adjustment IF they would like to use it. I also have a lot of Photoshop, ON1 and Lightroom tools,, but every once in awhile I think of a last tweak I might like to add at a later time. You can ignore it if you wish; it's just a gift. Enjoy your stay here!/

@paolop @Weezilou Louise's explanation is right on target. The main thing that Ross set up for us is the easy link so that we have a way of adjusting photos without losing comments if we need to update something. I use PS, LR, etc. for all my main processing. But occasionally there's a stray spot of dust, or a slightly tilted landscape, and I hadn't noticed before posting and already having friends comment on it. That's the time where picmonkey is handy. I also find it useful for collages prior to posting - though there are many other programs for those as well.

I love PicMonkey. I use Picasa and Photoshop regularly, but sometimes I upload a photo unedited or lightly edited to take advantages of some of the awesome editing features on PicMonkey. Also, I occasionally need to fix something that I missed, such was the case just the other day. It's really a fun editing program. You should check it out when you get a chance. The "edit: with PicMonkey" doesn't mean you used it, just that you can.

It's a great way to edit your photo after you have posted it on 365. Being able to do this means you don't lose any of the comments already posted on that photo

And picMonkey is a great gift for those of us that do not have photoshop or lightroom :)
