Video Tutorial: How To Make Images Circular


A great way to spice up your praise page (or other pages on your site for that matter) is to make some quick edits rather than just uploading them directly as the original.

The most popular type of edit for a praise page, and the one I get asked about the most, is how to easily make images circular.

Luckily, you don’t need to invest your life savings into Photoshop in order to make your images a bit fancier.

There are tons of free photo edit software options out there, but the easiest for making circles in my opinion is with PicMonkey.

So here’s a quick video on how to do so in less than a minute!

Now, off you go to fancy up your praise page!

      Glad it was helpful Holly! And yes, you’re the video queen! Just need to get some with my face on here :)

  • Ije

    Super helpful! Thank you!

  • Way easier than what I was doing in Pages. Thanks Leah!

  • Leah thank you! Question, how do you make them all the same size? Should we just crop the pictures to a square first and keep it around one standard size like 150×150 or 200×200?


  • So simple yet so useful. This came at a good time for me as I’m just getting ready to launch my website. Thanks for sharing!

  • Thank you so much for posting this! We just made our sidebar image circular. The only thing is, we can’t seem to make the image clickable and link to our about me page. We also checked out your post for add an image to your sidebar and make it clickable, but the html is not working for us. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciate.

      Do you have a link or the html code so I can take a look at it and see if you are missing something?

    Hi Leah,

    thank you for this tutorial. The Picmonkey now only lets you save the circular images only if you go with their 7 day trial.
    I found a way around it and that is to add CSS class to your HTML to the image that you want to change and add border-radius: 50% to your stylesheet.

    Thanks for the great content you provide to us :)

All the instructions she provided allowed me to do things on my own, and her willingness to help if I didn’t understand something. People take my business more serious as my website is much more professional.
