MakeUseOf: PicMonkey Now Makes You Pay to Save Your Images. “PicMonkey, one of the most popular online photo-editing suites around, has rendered its free offerings absolutely pointless. You can still edit photos for free, spending hours crafting a visual masterpiece, but to actually save your creation you’ll have to pay. Which is ridiculous.” I have used PicMonkey for years and I like it – I have a “Superpremium” account, which is $99 a year. (Now that I’m not using it for work I might step that back.) If you do a lot of editing from a lot of different computers I think it’s worth $7.99 a month or $47.88 annually. But making users unable to save or export their work is a pretty awful way to cripple it.
