About Fotor

Fotor is a design tool used for photo editing, and to create cards, invitations and fliers by non-professionals and designers alike. Fotor comes with design multiple templates all of which can be customized and tweaked to the needs of a particular project.

In addition to standard photo editing tools, such as adjusting colors, cropping and resizing, Fotor offers a variety of full and partial filters that allow users to bring specific parts of the picture to light. Background blurring, skin smoothing and makeup application are all supported. With toolbar customizations users can save their favorite filters for future use.

Fotor offers a wise repository of stickers that can be applied to both pictures and cards. Photos can be used as sticker backgrounds in designs or even take the shape of stickers. Arranging various design elements on a page is straightforward with drag-and-drop functionality. Text is easily added to any design and customized with a variety of scripts, colors and effects.

Fotor enables collage creation and supports both artistic collages and photo collages with customizable borders, stickers, photo effects, text, and auto resizing and positioning of elements. All designs are auto-synced to the cloud and shareable on social media.

Huge benefits! I need to make small and large edits to photos all the time in my marketing job. This has really helped me accomplish that without a ton of editing knowledge or overhead. Great product!

Pros

I love love love this product! I stumbled on it a few years ago and it quickly became my easy photo editor tool. I can do almost anything with it and it's very intuitive! Within the last year they have added new features like filters which just made it that much better.

Cons

I honestly can't think of any. There was a small learning curve with the multi image layout but that seems to be expected with something like this.

Fotor actually makes my work weeks easier.

Reviewed on 5/10/2021

Working with images is one of the most frustrating and time intensive parts of my job, because I'm...

Working with images is one of the most frustrating and time intensive parts of my job, because I'm not a designer. Fotor has made it easier for me. Seems like a bland, simple statement, but a software tool actually making my life easier week after week is a rare and valuable thing.

If your photo needs are basic (cropping, resizing, touching up, brightening, etc.) and you don't particularly care to learn deeper photo editing skills, Fotor is an excellent choice. It'll do everything you need, it'll do it quickly, and it won't distract you with anything you don't.

Pros

It has a robust free version, which is what I'm most familiar with. I'm not a designer or photographer, and Fotor has tons of cropping, touch-up, re-sizing, and other web-design-based features built in to make it easy for people like me. I've used other design tools before, but Fotor is one of the best free design tools specifically for photo editing.

A major benefit, especially for web designers/developers, is the free version allows for batch image editing. You can upload a full folder of photos, set the editing parameters you want, and Fotor edits every photo. That has saved me more hours than I can count.

Cons

When it comes to anything "design," Fotor gets a bit weak. Simply adding a text or color overlay rarely worked out for me. More often than not I found myself editing images in Fotor, exporting to another tool like Canva, and then finishing the design from there.

However, this isn't too different from how professional-level designers work. Photoshop to InDesign etc. So I don't hold it against them. But it's just good to note that Fotor won't be your go-to web design solution - just a fantastic, free image editing solution.

Reasons for Choosing Fotor

GIMP is great, a true beast of a free tool. But it was too much for me, and at the time I was working off of a tiny macbook, and GIMP was too hefty to work quickly. If you're interested in expanding your photo editing skillset, Fotor will be too basic. For me, the switch increased productivity.

Reasons for Switching to Fotor

Fotor is free and super user friendly. I also had no interest in growing my photo editing skills, so keeping it simple worked best for me.

Fotor: A very easy to use photo editor.

Overall I love using Fotor to do simple and quick edits to my images and social media posts. There's a lot of features offered to help me. I recommend this software to those looking to make fast and easy edits even on their phone.

Pros

This is one of the easiest photo editors to use. Very simple to resize, reshape and reorder images to create beautiful images that I use for social media posts. There is a good amount of features offered and a free version of Fotor. There is also a mobile app which is great.

Cons

Fotor does have a few features that you will need to learn how to use but after that, it is all very simple.

Fotor Has Its Uses

Reviewed on 27/7/2019

Overall, I found Fotor to be useful, especially as a means of learning to make digital collages,...

Overall, I found Fotor to be useful, especially as a means of learning to make digital collages, but one does, I think, out grow it quickly. I was using it weekly, almost daily, for an extended period of a couple of years or more, but gradually, particularly due to the constant changes to the software, it became less and less useful. It became more and more limited and irritating, and the quality of the resolution of the collages proved too low for our purposes, so we started using other collage makers. We almost never use Fotor any longer, and when we do, we still find it mainly insufficient for our purposes. I'd suggest this is better software for teens looking to learn and have fun with photos, but professionally, if one's business is very reliant on striking images to sell products, one has to be hesitant about using Fotor, at least for collage making purposes.

Pros

I used Fotor mainly to design photo collages for the social media accounts of my lit history company, and it did serve the purpose reasonably well, allowing for the creation of attractive collages.

Cons

Unfortunately, the tools and the functions of the site were too often changed, so as soon as one started to improve in the speed and quality of best using the site, one was learning things all over again and taking longer than necessary to complete a task that should not have taken as much work time. Equally, the final resolution of the collage was not high on all devices, no matter in what format and on what settings we saved it, so especially for the purposes of something as visual as Instagram, it came to be less than ideal. And in addition, the site often froze, causing us to lose work, and having to start again.
