SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Nov 1, 2013) - PicMonkey, the leading photo editing service on the Web, announced today new photo retrieval capabilities that allow users to instantly find and edit their images directly from Facebook, Flickr and Dropbox. This new feature complements the company's existing functionality, where individuals can save their edited photos or projects directly to Dropbox, Facebook and Flickr, as well as Pinterest, Twitter and Tumblr, bringing the process full circle and providing unprecedented ease of use for photo editing and sharing.
"People keep their photos in various locations -- on their desktops, in the cloud, on social networks, seemingly everywhere," said Jonathan Sposato, Co-Founder and CEO of PicMonkey. "One for the main barriers to online photo editing is ease of use. By providing this upload functionality and enabling our members to find and edit their photos in an instant, we are breaking down this barrier to make it extremely simple for anyone to select, edit and save their masterpieces."
Since launching last year, more than one billion photos have been edited using PicMonkey.com. The company reached this number faster than Instagram, with little traditional marketing. The world-of-mouth buzz has resulted in a userbase of more than 15 million unique each month. These individuals spend on average 19 minutes editing photos on the site, making it one of the longest visited sites on the web today.
The latter quarter of the year proves to be a busy time in the photo editing space, starting with Halloween and continuing through Thanksgiving and winter holidays into the New Year. PicMonkey is an incredible resource for both photo editing as well as various DIY projects, from designing one-of-a-kind holiday photos cards to creating projects for the home or for gifts. With today's announcement, holiday photo projects will be even easier to create and share.
