What The Heck Is It? The Scoop
What They Say
Powerful, user-friendly and globally accessible, Fotor is an online photo editing suite, utilizing exclusive technology to bring an unprecedented level of online photo editing control to anyone and everyone. While the ‘collage’ and ‘edit’ features are already enjoyed by millions of users, daily, the new ‘design’ feature gives the common user the ability to design any form of graphics and cover, limited only by imagination.
Streamlined with a number of social media channels, Fotor’s exponentially growing user base is comprised of hundreds of millions of users across the globe. Initially gaining great popularity with its optimized and user-friendly desktop suit for both Windows and Mac, Fotor now supports every major mobile and desktop platform from Android to iOS, with a specialized ‘Fotor for Messenger’ version, streamlined with Facebook for greater connectivity and convenience. Fotor’s mobile versions receive frequent updates and new features, not only providing the common user the ability to take and edit amazing photos, but also the convenience of having images shared and uploaded on all major social media platforms.
On top of being an established utility app with a range of design features, Fotor also supports international photographic competitions. Currently supported on the mobile platforms, but soon to be accessible to all versions including desktop, Fotor’s competitions are a key element in user interaction. With a number of simultaneous competitions every week, spanning a number of topics and photographic styles, these events are judged by an official panel of professional photographers, whose input maintains a consist influx of high quality, creative images.
The combination and integration of specialized image editing technologies, coupled with unique features and community competitions allows for Fotor’s continual growth and development. Fotor is a cross platform editor and designer, available on every major mobile device, desktop computer and online. ‘One-Tap Enhance’, a tool designed to improve the most common imaging problems in the shortest period of time is just one of the many unique features. RAW file processing, allowing for unparalleled definition quality is a key feature of the desktop platform, while the patented HDR (High Dynamic Range) is available on many versions, including mobile.
Can Beginners Use It?
Fotor was designed to be the one stop photo editor for experienced designers while maintaining a simplistic user interface that anyone can navigate and use.
Is The App Affordable?
The Fotor App is free, but I highly recommend Fotor Pro if you plan to use regulary as it can replace other editing software tools at 8.99 a month.
Would I Recommend The App?
If you take many pictures on your phone, and you have images you want easily cropped, textured, collaged and overlayed with text. I highly recommend this professional tool. You will go so much quicker when you post images. This app is great for bloggers, business online but also for personal photo taking and social sharing on Instagram and other channels.
The Down-low on the Downside
There is a cost associated with the pro which is 8.99 a month. I recommend trying the free trial and once you find you quickly get the hang of it, try the pro out for a three month trial.
