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.

"Invasive Program - Works But Requires A Lot Of Effort"

January 18, 2012  |  By Old Dog New Tricks

 |  Version: FotoMix 8.7.4

Pros

- Works as claimed, and can give some great results if you put in the time

Cons

- Installation will also automatically install the Facemoods toolbar, so be warned
- This program is NOT intuitive, the 5 work screens use text and icons in an inconsistant manner. No doubt, the habitual user will find it ok, but the occassional user like me will have a steep learning curve each time you return to the program
- There is a marked absense of any AUTO editing, for example for colour adjustment and, in particular, removal of background colours

Summary

Overall, I was disappointed with this program. I am never very happy when there is no custom installation offered, and incensed when I must then uninstall the invasive Facemoods toolbar (thankfully installed as a separate element). The only offer available during installation is whether to install as the preferred toolbar, not to not take it in the first instance !!!!
The editing tools on offer are adequate for a merge program ie, colour adustment, sizing, cropping cloning and erasing, but I could not recommend this program just for general photo editing. However, these tools are fine when used to seamlessly merge 2 (or more) images. It'a a pity that both the erase and cloning tools are so limited, since both require extensive manipulation even just to eliminate the background to any image.
Overall, I found the process clumsy and too demanding in both time and effort to achieve the effect I was looking for. There are easier and better tools available, and I could not recommend this software.
