Review - Photo Editing Software

It's so easy in this day and age to take photos, compact cameras are getting smaller and easy to fit in your pocket and of course, if you own a smartphone, most of us have a camera with us at all times. 

There doesn't have to be a lot of skill involved in taking photos anymore, which has made photo taking accessible to all, and that's a good thing, however sometimes we need a little help to make our photos better. Cropping a photo, adjusting the contrast, making the colours richer, making the photos sharper -all this can be done with Fotor.

Fotor is a free photo editor which enables you to edit a photo simply without being an expert. Here are some of my favourite features, and ways on how to improve your blog's pics, or indeed any of your pics with Fotor.

Top Three Favourite Features 

One Tap

One tap enhance is a great feature. You upload your photo and simply tap. Photos come out adjusted for brightness, colour and just look so much better. You can then compare the original with the adjusted photo and decide to save or not.


Photo Collages

These can be created quickly and simply. It's as easy as opening the photos in the collage editor, dragging and dropping into the cells, and if you wish, modifying the background with borders, effects and stickers. It's straight forward to add text as well and before you know you have a professional looking photo collage. Then just save your work in the appropriate format and quality. Perfect.

Colour Splash

Colour Splash can help make your photos dramatic or draw attention to a subject or object. This can really give a WOW effect or a subtle difference. As you can see below, using this effect on the image makes a real difference. I'm not an expert and it's not perfect but in less than five minutes I changed the image to black and white with the Colour Splash option, then used a brush to bring the original colour back to the vase and flower.



The Fotor blog has some great ideas and inspiration too such as articles on the Making Of Perfect Travel Photos or How To Create A Facebook Cover For Christmas.

No downloads are needed as it's all done online or through the Fotor app for Android or iPhone. Many options are free but you can upgrade for even more choice.

With social media templates for Pinterest, Instagram, and YouTube to name just three and classic templates for posters and cards, your design needs are made simpler with Fotor.

If you are looking for an easy to use photo editing package you really can't go wrong.

What do you think of the features? Are you a wiz at taking photos and editing?
