Editors' Review

+

FotoMix is an intuitive photo-editing tool that allows users to create dual-layer images, making it possible to add, remove, and combine elements. Although it doesn't begin to compare to full-featured software like Photoshop, it's not a bad choice for non-professional users who need something that's quick and easy to use.

The program's interface is quite simple, with the five-step photo-editing process arranged with buttons across the top. Users simply select a background image, select a foreground image, do the necessary editing on each, tweak the settings on the final composition, and save the result. We, for example, inserted a giant eggplant into the water in front of a small fishing village. We can't say that it looked particularly realistic, but we can say that it is within the capabilities of FotoMix to combine elements from different images in a realistic way. We very rarely do any photo editing, but we found just about all of the program's features to be intuitive, and the built-in Help file is well-written and thorough. We think that FotoMix is a great choice for users who don't have much photo-editing experience but need a basic way to combine elements from different images or just perform basic edits and improvements on a single image; if nothing else, it's an easy way to crop, rotate, and add text to images.

FotoMix is free, but does include advertising. The program installs a desktop icon without asking and leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.

"Create A Montage"

January 25, 2015  |  By BearPuppy

 |  Version: FotoMix 9.2.5

Pros

Allows for importing of images in separate Windows - foreground / background and then the Composition frame where a 4-way arrow allows for precise control of where the images overlap. Allows for further touch-ups of the combined image including edge fading and vignetting.

Cons

None so far.

Summary

Exactly what I was looking for - combining two images into a single photo. Makes for great montages.

"Not a Photo Collage Tool"

April 25, 2014  |  By shell_l_d

 |  Version: FotoMix 9.2.5

Pros

none to report

Cons

Publisher said "Design eye-catching photo collages" but it does not unless you create one 100% manually with no templates or backgrounds or anything ... bit of false advertising there.

"It's a very good Photo editing application."

November 06, 2012  |  By koolbrew

 |  Version: FotoMix 9.0.7

Pros

The results look professional if you take the time to learn the application. The tutorials are very good. In my opinion, It's the best of the free lot of Photo editing apps available.

Cons

If you don't use it often, you really have to relearn it each time. It is involved, but only because there is so much you can do to get a great result. Not as involved as Photoshop, though, that's for sure.

Summary

If you are not looking for professional results, and are not very artistic,or even if you are, you'll be very happy with this program.

"THE TOOLBAR ISSUE HAS BEEN FIXED !!!!"

August 22, 2012  |  By BigBadWolf_2009

 |  Version: FotoMix 9.0.2

Pros

This has been one of my favorite programs for years , you can a lot of things here easier than on PhotoShop

Cons

None anymore , back in Dec.2011 I bought a new Desk Top and naturally FotoMix was one of the first programs I installed.
When I installed it it put a tool bar in without any option for me not to accept it, and I had a hell of a job getting rid of the toolbar , even after I uninstalled the program the tool bar remained, and it didn't show up in my add or remove programs or as any add on , I eventually had to do a system restore to rid myself of the damn thing.
But the problem has been fixed and this great program is safe to use again.

Summary

I really missed using Foto Mix because even though I could do the same things with my Photo shop it took a lot more time and work .
So last night I did a little research to see if they changed their policy about tool bars .
Well I found a little piece the owner of FotoMix wrote in face book back in June I believe , he said basically " I am aware of the problem of the tool bar installing without your permission and I am working to correct that, I don't want you to have anything you do not want" .
I know there were tons of unhappy people when they added that tool bar that I think the owner may have had second thoughts and decided to make it optional ? that's just my opinion because I'm sure they lost a lot of fans back then.

Anyway I decided to try it this morning and to my surprise a box came up offering you several options about the toolbar and search engines and so on , BUT IT IS OPTIONAL , I click NO at the very top and the other 4 options removed the X automatically .

I'm very happy to report that the tool bar problem has been fixed , if you click NO it respects that which I might add 90% of the other companies that offer options install it anyway , but the owner of FotoMix is a man of his word and I am most grateful for that because I love this software.

I would also like to add that I downloaded it direct from the manufactures site , if that was the difference I do not know , so if you want their home site all you have to do is google it.
