Editors' review

Fotor provides you with a nice set of tools that you can use to edit your photos singly or in batches, and create collages for all occasions. Whether you frequently edit photos on your computer or you're new to the process, this app gives you everything you need to get started.

Pros

Lots of tools: When it comes to editing images, there's not much you can't do with this program. There is a nice array of editing tools that lets you adjust contrast, brightness, lighting source, and more. The long list of effects can each be applied to varying degrees according to a sliding scale, and each adjustment you make shows up almost instantly. As you're working, you can compare your photo's current state to the original at any time. And you can undo all changes and start over whenever you need to.

Direct sharing: You can share your photos straight from this app. Just choose whether you want to post to Facebook, Flickr, or Twitter, and let the software do the rest.

Cons

No drag and drop: One missing feature that would be a nice addition is a drag-and-drop option for adding photos or folders to the app. Instead, you have to go through menus and browse files from your computer to get your photos into the program.

Bottom Line

Fotor is a smooth and efficient photo editing program with lots of powerful features to help you make your images look just the way you want them to. And since it's free, it's worth trying out even if you're not sure how often you'll use it.

    "Really, Really Nice Photo Editor"

    June 09, 2014   |   By Imogen7Ryan

    Version: Fotor 2.0.2

    Pros

    The look or UI is absolutely beautiful - the charcoal grey really makes your images stand out. Navigating was easy. There are plenty of ways to add various filters to your image that produce beautiful photo's. It has all the standard features you would expect: cropping, resizing, exposure, contrast and so on. It too has advanced features along with Batch editing and creating collages. Uploading photos for editing is as simple as it gets.

    Cons

    There are not enough 'Undo/Redo' options except in the adjustments area: When adding various filters or layers, that's where this feature, that ought to really be there, isn't.

    Summary

    It is a joy to work with Fotor. It is easy to navigate and creates beautiful images. Batch edit is useful as is the option to create collages. I was very pleased with its visual appearence but the 'undo/redo' element needs to be adressed, though filters can be set to 'None', but when working with layers, it proves difficult which one to remove 'if' at all they can be. Overall though, it's very pleasing and very satisfactory.

    "Does the job well."

    March 18, 2014   |   By rtbcomp

    Version: Fotor 2.0

    Pros

    Good selection of presets allows you to get close to what you want and then you can fine tune from there. The image updates quickly as you edit it.

    Cons

    Nag screen after you've saved a file holds you up. Could do with "Next" & "Previous" buttons so you can work through a list of files without having to load each one in turn by name.

    Summary

    Well worth giving it a go.

    "It's okay."

    March 15, 2014   |   By alexmonte

    Version: Fotor 2.0

    Pros

    Never had any problems with having to "scan" or "upload" pictures... everything I've done I've been able to do the the picture from wherever it was located on my computer. I like the effects you can use.

    Cons

    There are features from other picture viewers and editors that this program lacks.

    Summary

    It works but could be better.

    "Can't drag desktop pic in!"

    March 14, 2014   |   By unmarc

    Version: Fotor 2.0

    Pros

    Not much. Fairly fast loading I guess.

    Cons

    Ergo you have a Loser from the get-go.
    You must scan files/your desktop and the choose and upload file.
    You must be kidding after 15 years.

    Summary

    Basically Stinks.
    Not nearly as good/Fast/Easy as my old and no longer available 'PhotoFiltre'.

    The latter program shows it's downloadable but it Isn't.
    Another Dud on Downer.com

    Updated on Mar 29, 2014

    As BAD as ever. Can't resize a picture pixel-wise.

    NOT intuitive at all.
    Whose paying reviewer? This is Junk

    August 23, 2013   |   By FernandezRobert

    Version: Fotor 1.2

    Pros

    Fotor is possibly one of the best photo editors that I've come across

    Cons

    the answer is no!!

    Summary

    If you love photos and want them to look their best, go add PicMonkey to your bookmarks bar. You will be happy you did after you find yourself going back to it multiple times.
