There are many photo editing tools on the market and Photoshop is one the oldest and best that you can do everything with it, but Photoshop needs training and you must be trained to use it, and many of its features may not work for you, but Polarr is simple, practical and convenient. You can easily edit your photos with it.

Pros

The menus and buttons are simple, with everything I need to edit photos, filters, resize, effects, retouch, add text, Ai Gradient, Awesome Adjustment, Raw editor, and many more useful common features. The design of its user dashboard is so stylish and simple and designed with few buttons that anyone with the least computer knowledge can start working with it. It has professional filters and the Retouches feature works very well for me and it works on all devices online and offline via mobile or desktop with any resolution and any os. Also, the font import tool for editing photos with my desired Font is great.

Cons

Several sample prebuilt templates such as banners, ready-made text-photos, ready-made sample sizes, and materials could make the job easier so that one could prepare projects for social networks more easily.

Good for quick photo retouching

Reviewed on 9/9/2020

My experience has been positive - whenever I need a quick edit, Polarr is usually first in line.

My experience has been positive - whenever I need a quick edit, Polarr is usually first in line.

Pros

There's a reason why Polarr is known for its filters - it provides a huge selection of ready to use and high quality filters that you can apply with a single click. It also provides good control for image adjustments (light, color, etc).

Cons

If you need something a bit more advanced other than filters and photo retouching, then Polarr isn't the right tool for the job.

I have used Polarr to create nicely looking images for social media, especially using its filters.

Pros

With a very extensive selection of filters, overlays and tools for basic image editing and retouch, Polarr is very powerful when it comes to editing images for social media.

Cons

Its interface is fairly different from most tools out there, so it takes some time to get familiarized with it.

Editing tool for your images

Pros

I have been using this tool and figured out that it has variety of functions and tools in it. It allows you to create your own filter. One of the interesting fact is that you can work on it offline too.

Cons

It is slightly different form other editing apps so it took me a while to get use to it. It has variety of options but I would like to see some pre made filters, bann
