Fotor

2019-05-13

It is good for social media based work that is just quick and simple.

Pros

There's a variety of templates to design from and it gets simple jobs done.

Cons

You don't have ultimate creative control due to the limited tools and features, but if your doing a quick one off design for a social media post it's fine.

Fotor The real competitor to Photoshop

2019-08-08

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.

Cons

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.

Spice Up Your Photo Collage

2020-09-26

I am using this mainly to create photo collage that doesn't look boring.

Pros

Besides photo editing, you can also use this tool to design a tonnes of graphics for your business or social media. Easy to use.

Cons

My biggest pet peeve with this app is that whenever I click on something within the app, instead of load & show it on the same page I am in, it frequently open and load in a new tab which means I would have a few new tabs open in my browser after I have done with a few clickings.

Free web app for editing photos!

2019-12-22

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.

Pros

Easy to add graphics and text to your pictures.

Cons

The UI isn't the prettiest but the features and value makes up for it.

Fotor Has Its Uses

2019-07-27

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.

Fotor - Fun editing for Photos

2019-04-09

The layout of Fotor is very similar to Canva, so if you have experience with Canva you'll be good to go with Fotor!

Pros

Fotor has a very intuitive interface, and is great for simple photo editing.

Cons

I haven't found a Con yet, but I've heard that the mobile App is very advertisement-heavy.

Good all-around photo editing tool

2019-12-04

I was looking for a photo editing software they as creative tools as well.

Pros

I like that it combined photo editing with creative tools to add text and other effecfts to the image for social media and stuff.

Cons

I found it to be lacking some of the features that I really need such as background removal. The price is reasonable but there's better deals out there.

Fotor is a Great Simple Photo Editing Tool, and Free

2018-12-19

Sometimes the best products are the ones that are straightforward and let's easily do what you want, a simple photo edit.

Pros

They have a great series of filters you can use, if I had to pick one feature I love the most about the software is the Focus feature.

Cons

It's super basic, you can add a text box and change color, font size, rotate text and drag to change the perspective.

Great photo editing software!

2019-07-09

I'm an independent author, so I not only publish my own books, but I also create my own covers and design my own marketing posters, which means I definitely need a good photo editor at times!

Pros

Cost-effective payment plans.

Cons

Some of the effects aren't as strong as other software editing programs.

Fotor Review

2020-08-26

I use fotor to edit my photos as a producer, and album arts or arts for my instagram, and also arts for my electronic music youtube channel, I use fotor because it's easy, on the web, and sometimes I don't even need to download any photo to include it on the website, and I also like it because it has some possibilities of beautification when I edit my personal photos, like stain remover etc.

Pros

The Fotor application is great, it is an editor with many features and the best, you don't need to download anything, it's easy to use and it's easy to upload photos or use links from the internet itself, without having to download a photo you want to edit.

Cons

What I really don't like about the app, is that besides the variety of possibilities of things, there are very few effects available in the free version, for example when I want black and white photos, I can't because fotor does not provide this simple effect for free.

Free Photo Editor

2019-10-16

I like using Foto to enhance photos for use on websites. It does a really good job and is easy to use.

Pros

This website is very easy to use.

Cons

When restarting with a new photo it often does not get back to the "select a photo" screen. I find that I have to refresh the page to get it to prompt for a new photo.

A typical picture editor

2019-05-23

Fotor is a good software overall and that's the problem it has.It's just good and doesn't even try to offer anything new.

Pros

It comes is both free and pro version.The interface is really user-friendly and stylish.One can easily edit,collage and batch his pictures.After the process the picture can be produced in three different qualities that also dictates the file size.With various offers ongoing one can easily buy it in a much reduced price.

Cons

Although it boasts of various features,most of the cool features are not free.It has got issue with its speed.For PC this creates a big problem.It takes a lot space and slows down the overall speed of the PC.Perhaps the most frustrating thing is that Fotor doesn't offer anything new.It looks and feels like the hundreds other photo editor software out there.

Fotor is my top photo lightweight editor.

2020-10-05

I've had Fotor on my computer since windows 8 and I've enjoyed using it all that time.

Pros

This makes it easy to apply useful filters that I can use to adjust photos that I add to websites and applications like blurring and adding depth to photos.

Cons

It does not save the state of the sessions. When the application is closed by mistake without saving, everything is lost and I have to start editing afresh

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.

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.

Proving to be a highly beneficial designing tool

2019-10-13

I have just started using the app but I am definitely enjoying working with it.

Pros

After stumbling upon the Fotor lifetime deal, I had gotten the lifetime access at a very reasonable price.

Cons

As of now, I only feel that the Text Overlays or fonts are not up to the mark. I could be wrong or I simply don't understand how to better use it. Other than this, Fotor is remarkable.

Don't use this

2020-07-08

A waste of time. So much so I'd gladly spend another hour just to warn people DO NOT update your computer and not good for stitching at all.

Pros

Free, easy to use but ultimately useless.

Cons

It insisted that I update my Mac with an outdated security update. Doing so crashed my Mac, took me 30 minutes to revive my computer and when I did get into the program, all I wanted to do was stitch three pictures together but there were NO instructions or hints of what to do once you've uploaded the images.
