Review: Fotor

Fotor is a quick and easy to use photo editor for mobile devices, PCs and online. The app is still available in both Free and Pro versions, with the Free version offering a boatload of features. However, with the Pro version, you are able to do much more interns of editing and improving the quality of your images.

Fotor allows you to edit and enhance images on the go without much fuss. With the online photo editing suite as well, Fotor offers a Pro version which allows you to do a lot more than the Free version.

Powered by HTML 5, Fotor’s online photo editing suite allows you to edit photos, make a collage or design a wide range of graphics using predesigned templates that are very easy to edit. The dose of creativity you can add to these predesigned templates are only limited by your imagination.

The Fotor designer allows you to create a wide range of content for social media channels – be it Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram, and Pinterest. In addition, you can design posters, business cards, logos, email headers, menus, gift certificates, flyers, event invitations, resumes, letterheads, web banners, book covers, postcards,… and the list goes on and on.

Fotor is a cross platform editor and designer, available on every major mobile device, desktop computer and online. It comes with a feature called ‘One-Tap Enhance’ – this is a tool designed to improve the most common imaging problems in the shortest period of time is just one of the many unique features.

The tool also supports RAW file processing, in addition to support for HDR (High Dynamic Range) content. Using the online photo editing suite is a walk in the park. Once you sign up, you get three options – Edit, Collage and Design. Clicking on Edit will take you to the online photo editing tool that is filled to the brim with one touch enhancement features.

These include basic editing tools, a long list of effects, beauty enhancers, adding frames to the images, adding stickers, adding text, and so on. Clicking on Collage, takes you to the collage tool on Fotor. You can create a classic collage, an artistic collage, a funky collage and photo stitching.

Clicking on Design, takes you to Fotor’s pre-designed template gallery. From here, you can choose the template you want to use, depending on the content you want to create. It can be a Facebook page cover design or a web banner for a client. You can also create logos, business cards and so on. The amount of templates on the Fotor online platform is just brilliant.

To use Fotor, you really don’t need to go through hours and hours of training. All you need is your imagination and the creativity automatically flows. Editing photos or creating a new design is as easy as it can get. Fotor’s online image editing suite is currently available in 9 languages including English. Arabic though is not in the list and I am not sure whether they intend on adding that language in the future.

While features on the Free version should be good enough for most users, the Pro version offers a wide range of professional tools to enhance your images further or create excellent designs. The Pro version is ad-free, offers professional image editing tools, and comes with exclusive 100+ photo effects and advanced portrait touch-ups.

In addition, with the Pro version, you get advanced design features, advanced HDR tech, massive storage on Fotor cloud, and lots more. Pro subscriptions is totally optional and Fotor charges $39.99 for an annual subscription and $8.99 for a monthly subscription.

The performance and the features of the Fotor online image editing suite is truly amazing. Editing images and creating new designs is effortless. The user interface of the editing suite is fresh and intuitive.
