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.

"Corrupted My Files"

December 22, 2015  |  By selftaught

2015-12-22 05:26:29  |  By selftaught

 |  Version: Fotor 2.0.2

Pros

Easy to use; Has basic editing tools; photo images look good.

Cons

Can find this type of program elsewhere; After using and installing this program 1 time on a new Windows 10 laptop, I shut down my computer for the day. I logged on the next morning to find my computer had drastically changed. My tiles on the start-up page had disappeared; my start menu was gone; the icon to turn-off/sleep for my computer was gone; and a few other items were missing. It turned out that files were not corrupted after I had installed this program. Was it responsible? I can't say for sure, but I can say that before I installed it, my new laptop was fine. After I installed it, it took over two hours of work to attempt to get my laptop back to original condition. The tech at Dell then wanted me to return it (it was only 2 weeks old). We finally restored the computer back to its original condition without Fotor and I won't take a chance on installing it again. This is not the only program I've installed on my computer, I've had others before Fotor and not a problem.

Summary

For me, not worth it. My two-week old laptop with Windows 10 suddenly had corrupted files and had to be restored after installing this program. Did the program create this problem? I'll never be able to fully prove it, but I do know that after installing Fotor, suddenly it appeared that the only program installed on my computer that radically changed everything on it could be this one. It took away my start menu, the ability to turn off my computer, the start-up page. Now that's frightening. I removed it, I'm back to safety. Just wanted to give a heads-up.

"Would not Download - Security Risk"

November 29, 2015  |  By MRBReview

2015-11-29 09:05:03  |  By MRBReview

 |  Version: Fotor 2.0.2

Pros

Software Seems Nice

Cons

After installing on windows 7 I noticed the software wants to run in elevated mode prompting a User Account Control request. Chinese software Publisher wants admin access every time the software runs. This is not advised.

Summary

Running this program requires a User Account Control approval. I'm not talking about the install which would always require admin privileges. This software wants admin privileges every time it runs. There is no reason this software should need or want that level of access to run. CNET should have picked up on this in their review and not even be hosting a program that has such a security risk potential. I would not give Chengdu Everimaging Technology and Science Co Ltd software (the Chinese publishers of Fodor) elevated access to my computer every time the software runs.

"I was blown away by the colour rendition"

November 19, 2014

2014-11-19 02:08:26

 |  Version: Fotor 2.0.2

Pros

I have used picasa web and Microsoft, Fotor's colour rendition is vibrant. It makes my poorly taken photos stand out.

Cons

I usually work on each photo at a time, instead of batches. It's very irritating that I need to search for the next photo in my folder to work on. Unlike Picasa and Microsoft, they provide a next button to click for the next photo.

Summary

The vibrant colours is a big plus.

"Really, Really Nice Photo Editor"

June 09, 2014  |  By Imogen7Ryan

2014-06-09 19:26:08  |  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

2014-03-18 12:10:03  |  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.

March 15, 2014  |  By alexmonte

2014-03-15 15:01:05  |  By alexmonte

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.

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

2014-03-14 00:27:48  |  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

3 steps to get to where most programs drag and drop in./Start.

What's the matter with yur monkeys who give it god reviews. This is the worst photo edit program I've ever seen. Ever
