Features of Fotor Free Download

When you launch the program, you are asked to edit a photo or create a collage.

Collage is designed for arranging your post-processed, edited images in a great format that you can either print or share. Editing is where all the fun stuff is, like adding tone, effects, etc. – so let’s start there.

The interface is clean. Even if you know nothing about photography or photo editing, you can quickly start adjusting an image to make it more pleasing to your needs. Here, I chose a simple photo of an eagle to see what I could make of it.

The scene mode works a little like a scene mode on a camera, making predetermined programming decisions for you based on your scene or lighting situation you choose. The AUTO option works fine, but please click through all the options to see if you like something else. There is no wrong choice. Just what you like.

Your next option is CROP. You don’t have to follow the menu steps in order, but for the sake of walking it’s still necessary. I prefer to crop after I have my final edits in place. The feature itself is very nice. You can freeform a shape if you like, type in the exact pixels or simply choose from a few presets and the program will do the rest for you. There is a nice overlay of a 3x 3 grid layout. This makes centering easier as well as observing the rules of the Rule of Thirds. I did a 4×6 crop, which is pretty standard for printing. Grabbing the edges I moved the crop to place the bird’s eye in the top center of the grid until it felt more balanced.

Next is ADJUSTE. Here you can straighten crooked images (This is why I crop last.) Apply effects such as red-eye removal and vignette and also adjust the exposure contrast, saturation, etc. of the image. Don’t worry if you don’t know what any of this is. The program uses sliders so you can move things around as much as you like until you’re happy. If you get lost, just hit the undo button to continuously undo edits you’ve made under a tab. If you hate everything, just click the reset button at the bottom of the app. Here, I’ve added some contrast and brightness and lowered the saturation a bit – trying to pop the bird out a bit.

EFFECTS, is where most of you will jump straight to. Here you can take your photo from nice to yowza quickly. You’ll find more than 60 preset edits to give your photo a very unique look and feel like it literally took you an hour to do in something like Photoshop – without a lot of plug-ins. You cannot stack edits though. This means that if you want to select a “Classic Reality Illusion” filter like I have here, and then decide you want to add one of the other art options as well, the program will undo the first filter. To use multiple filters, you will need to save your file, and reopen the image and add the new effect. That seems a little thick. Maybe this can be addressed in future builds.

The next tab is the Tilt-Shift. In short, I love it. I own Phorotshop CS5, and yes you can achieve this effect with the blur tool, gradients and layers – but it’s not that easy. A true tilt lens will set you back around $1000 and a good lens with a 1.4 aperture will also set you back a pretty penny. Although, if you’re looking for a hardware solution, you could probably do a lot of this with the new Lensbaby Compser for around $380. OR – You can use Fotor and get a great result for free. You make the call.

You have two options to choose from: Radial and Linear. The linear effect is more of the tradition type of “tilt shift” that is used by creative types to make real life photos appear to be miniaturized scenes. The radial option is more like accentuating the bokah you would get in a high end lens. You will see options for F/22 to F/1.4 – this indicates the aperture of the lens simulation. For the purpose of this article, F/22 will have the least effect on your final image and F/1.4 will have the most.

Here, I used the radial option because the original image was slightly out of focus anyway and I wanted to accentuate the eye. With this tool, what is in the center will remain sharp or in focus. The next circle dimmed a little and the outer circle even more. You can move these around as needed to create the effect you like. This blur draws the viewer’s eye to the sharpest part of the photo. For the eagle I used the F/8 setting but I edited one of a butterfly at F/1.4 to show the difference.

And there you have it. Click save and you’re done. The start to finish time I spent on this image was about 3 minutes, so be kind. Great, huh? I dig it. It has an old school vibe to it that I like. There is also a nice SHARE button that can dump your photo directly to Flickr / Facebook /Twitter with a few clicks.

One other note. There is a button at the bottom of this section that I almost missed called “Compare”. This is very convenient. If you click and hold that button, it will show you the original image. Release it and you’ll be back to your edit. Switching between the two is a great way to see if you’re on the right track.

Ok, now click on home to get to the main screen and you will see the Collage option. That is just that; fast, flexible ability to make a bunch of collages very quickly. When you open, you can choose from hundreds of go freestyle layouts. You can also change some other options, such as Border Color and Roundness, to suit your taste. I was surprised you couldn’t just drag a photo from Windows to a location though. You must click on the ADD button to select an image. It will then show up on the left menu and you can then drag it from there. Collages are a great way to share some vacation photos quickly because in this case I added multiple perspectives of Niagara Falls, which gives a more comprehensive impression of the falls than a picture or series of pictures could convey.

OK, no Fotor is no Photoshop or GIMP. It’s not meant to be. It is, however, a fast and impressive editor that is a lot of fun. I was able to teach my 6 year old how to use Fotor in about ten minutes. I literally have a rocket scientist friend that I haven’t been able to teach how to use Photoshop for years, so…..Photoshop and and GIMP aren’t for everyone, but Fotor might be. I definitely recommend having this app in your toolbox. It will save you time and bring out your creativity with almost no learning curve and zero cost… What’s not to like.
