  1. Holy crap. You are my savior. So many times I am writing a post and after inserting a picture I realize it looks…off. Then I have to open a new tab, go to Picmonkey, edit, re-save, re-insert. You saved me tons of frustration and time! Thank you!

    1. Shawna,

      Girl I seriously share your pain. I was always going from WordPress to Photoshop, Photoshop to WordPress. Gah! I felt so silly when I finally figured this out. Doh!
