You can open a photo in the PicMonkey Editor three ways: by dragging and dropping onto the homepage, by using the Edit button atop the the homepage, or by clicking Open in the top toolbar, if you're already in the Editor.

Open an image with drag and drop

  • Drag a photo from your desktop or file folder onto the PicMonkey homepage and drop it in the target area that says, “Drop image to edit” on the far left.

Open an image using the Edit button

  • If you know you want to open a photo from your computer, you can click the Edit button atop the homepage and it will allow you to access your files.
  • If you're getting your photos from another photo storage place, hover over the Edit button on the PicMonkey homepage and pick the storage option from the gray bar that appears below: Either your computer, Hub, Facebook, OneDrive, Dropbox, or Flickr.

Open a picture from the Editor

If you’re already in the Editor and want to open a new image without going back to the homepage, you can:

  • Click the Open button on the far left of the top toolbar.
  • You’ll have the option of opening from your computer, Hub, Templates, Facebook, OneDrive, Dropbox, or Flickr.
