Playing with Scalloped Edges in Picmonkey
My absolute favorite features in Picmonkey are the scalloped labels (in overlays). I think scalloped borders are adorable.
I guess that's why I can't stop putting them all over my blog. Cute!
I've had a couple of requests to do a scalloped edges tutorial, so that's what today is.

It's really super easy-- and did I mention how cute? I'm going to cover two different uses for scalloped edges in your photo editing and blog designing: 1) as an embellishment or divider; just a straight scalloped line. 2) as a picture frame/window
A Scalloped Edge as Embellishment or Divider*
1. Upload your white starter image to Picmonkey.com. 2. Select the scalloped square.
5. Merge layers and add your photo, texts, and/or other images! Don't forget to crop before you save!
- When creating a scalloped frame for a photo, you may want to upload your photo layer first-- just so you know what size you need the frame to be! Simply right-click on the scalloped square and select "Send to Back" to place the square behind your photo.
- Always save as .png instead of .jpg for a crisper looking image.
- Use the scalloped border as a post divider or sidebar section divider in your blog design!
