"Unleash all your photo editing ambitions"

Overview

Fotor is a fun and easy-to-use image editing tool ample for beginning users. It is a fast-responding and light application that offers fun tools to edit your images or create collages. It offers a great variety of templates and presets to enhance your photos, add some cool effects. If you like creating your Christmas cards instead of buying cliche cards in your local store, we suggest you give this neat application a try. It is free of charge; it is packed with nifty features; it is easy to master. Fotor works with Windows 8. Its modern interface adds value to the fun pot of creating colorful and funny collages with your pictures. There is no learning curve here, so anyone with basic computer literacy skills will be able to use it.

Installation

Installation is fast and clean. You are suggested to create desktop shortcuts and quick launch icon, but you can uncheck it along with adding Fotor website to your bookmarks in the browser. There is an ad block at the bottom of the window offering some affiliated products.

Interface

Fotor Photo Editor is highly rated due to its fast responsiveness and attractive GUI. The slick design is intuitive, but we would say no intuition is needed here - all features are on the surface. Main window offers two modules - edit an image and create a collage. Both modules are easy-to-navigate and add fun effects, text, frames, borders and adjust other settings. Color, graphic and lightning effects are easy to apply. This simple, yet feature-rich image editor is the closest thing to a fully-fledged paid application you can get for free.

Loading images from your folders and then drag-and-dropping them to your collage is fast and simple. The collage templates are abundant, as are the backgrounds, colors, scenes and borders. Saving and sharing images is a one-click action so we can recommend this app for lightly-tech users.

Features

Simplicity combines with a number of nifty features in Fotor.
Photo processing is a quick and painless entertainment. You can adjust brightness, color, white balance, exposure, sharpen or blur, saturation, crop, rotate, straighten, add a vignette or background, border, or tilt-shift effects. Those features have been designed by professional photographers as developers claim.

The number of cool effects is large: 60 effects, 30 styles and frames. 
‘Scenes’ feature is a fun 1-click enhancement tool that offers 13 different improvement options for images that lack the light or need some adjustments, like retouching.
