How To Create A Circle Profile Photo

How To Create A Circle Profile Photo_01

I have been really liking the look of a circle shape profile photo on my blog, I just find that it instantly looks better than the normal square shape. It always does make your blog look instantly different , if you are looking for a quick change up, you can also added those beautiful flower wreaths to your photo too the possibilities are endless.

Today I thought it would be cool to show you guys how I create my profile image into a circle, they aren’t photographed that way I edit them into that shape. I use Picmonkey to achieve this, I tend to use Picmonkey for so many editing features like cropping and adding text to my images – now that they released a phone app version I use it for some light editing mainly adding brightness to my photos. I do however find that the app version for the phone is very limited and doesn’t have the features that you are able to do on your computer like cutting your profile photo into a circle.

I usually make the background white because I find that some social media like Disqus for comment system the background shows black when you choose transparent , so I would suggest choose the background white unless you are only going to use it for your blog and you don’t have a white blog background then choose transparent.
