PicMonkey Alternatives

PicMonkey is available on mobile devices (with a freemium pay model) as well as online in-browser for all devices (which is a subscription-based service). This unique business model isn't found in any of its alternatives.

That being said, while the PicMonkey mobile app is freemium, its full functionality is paid with subscriptions available both monthly and annually. There are free online image editors available as alternatives, as well as free alternatives for Windows, macOS, and Linux.

PicMonkey alternatives are mainly Image Editors but may also be Photo Editors or Digital Painting Tools. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of PicMonkey.
