I love this site Fotor for quick and fun editing effects for my images.
You guys know that I know nothing about focus or lighting when it comes to photos. Most photos I take for my site are retouched in some form or the other.
I first tried a free download of the good ole Photoshop, but layers and me don’t get along so well.
And then a blogger buddy enlightened me about all the free! tools available on the web for image editing. And one of them that I totally love is Fotor. It’s awesome for retouching newbies.
They have some wonderful templates and collage options that are great to collate multiple photos together in a number of creative ways. I used some pics taken during our housewarming ceremony as an example here.
I used the photo collage. How long do you think it took? I spent all of 5 minutes creating this collage :).
All right, there are many sites and apps that offer these features. But what about creating an online card? Within minutes?
There are so many card options. I used a basic birthday card with just two photos. The template was all ready, all I needed to do was drag and drop the photos from my desktop. I know I am definitely going to use these card options a lot for all sorts of greetings.
And last but not the least, there is the basic photo effects feature that I use for retouching my photos. Here’s a before and after example…
Of course, Piglet looks perfect in the Before picture too, but I appreciate the opportunity to correct the light a bit. He looks pale and the light was not good enough.
Here’s the retouched photo. I also added in a picture frame to prettify the photo further. What do you think?
I only used the basic photo retouching (or photo effects as they call it). They have some really cool effects like Tilt shift, Blur, and Mosaic as well if you want to get really creative. And all these effects are free! When compared to another similar tool which offers only basic retouching for free and the good stuff comes at a cost, Fotor offers real bang for no buck. How much better does it get?
Another reason I love Fotor? They have a free app for iPhone meaning that I can edit photos on the go. I love this!!!
Do you retouch images you post on your blog? Which tools do you use?
