Fotor overview

What is 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 The real competitor to Photoshop

Used occasionally for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

In general, this application can be considered a real competitor to Photoshop, it is easy to use and very fast in getting things done, and it is easy for beginners in the field of design to design great pictures and share them with their friends on social media.

Pros
Easy-to-use software, designed in an aesthetic way that attracts users to use it. One of the coolest things about this program is those cool and varied filters, such as light change filters as well as shadow-changing filters, all easily and quickly. Over there, the program doesn't take up much of your computer's memory. One of the most enjoyable features of this unique program is the combination of several images in a unit image with few touches that can combine the images according to your preferred form. I tried this program and used all its possibilities and it was a very beautiful experience. It is also a feature of the program that everyone can use it even if they have no background in the field of information.

Cons
One of the main drawbacks of this program is that it is only for beginners in the field of photography design. It is also a disadvantage of this programme that it does not accept arabic writing; It is also a disadvantage of the program that you can not cut pictures and remove some parts of them. One of the drawbacks of the program is that there are no ready-to-design templates that designers can use in their various designs that they may use in their social media posts. One of the things I didn't like about the app is the lack of a photo library that can be used in design to facilitate the search for photos on designers.

Free web app for editing photos!

Used weekly for less than 6 months

Review Source: Capterra

I used Fotor to create some photo collages for a client of mine that I work with in a freelancer role. I searched high and low for a free photo editor and Fotor is the best one I could find. They don't hide useful features behind a paywall.

Pros
Easy to add graphics and text to your pictures. Ability to crop, shade, and edit the look of your photos. Fotor also has the capability to turn your photos into collages. There are many different layout options, unlike other free photo editors.

Cons
The UI isn't the prettiest but the features and value makes up for it. I had some issues recovering some saved items but learned the interface quickly.

Fotor Has Its Uses

Used weekly for 2+ years
Reviewed 2019-07-27
Review Source: Capterra

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.
