Comments and Ratings for Fotor Photo Editor
Probably perfect for someone who knows nothing about photo editing (3.1.0)
3/5 By Jasper Lawrence
This application is so rigid in terms of how you do what it allows you to do that unless you are happy to use it’s preset tools and collage features, want only to use its selection of very simple tools for color correction, etc., it is useless.
I gave it 3 Stars because I suspect that if you know nothing at all about photography or photo editing that it is fantastic at producing slick looking collages, and the kind of simple stuff people might want for making a family photo album, etc.
But if you have ever worked with Photoshop, and particularly if you have been paid to do so, it is utterly useless.
The product should be labelled as being for those with no knowledge or experience of photography, or photo editing, or of color correction.
If you do not know what a gamma curve is, or a white point, then this is the product for you.
Otherwise it is infuriatingly rigid, and assumes that you know absolutely nothing about photo editing, compositing, colour correction, etc. When I first started using it I got quite angry, I felt that it’s makers assumed I was an idiot. What instead they assumed is that users know nothing about photography, etc.
Probably great for someone who wants to make a pretty, professional looking photo album, or series of photographs for printing, and who doesn’t want to have to think about what they are doing at all. Otherwise so idiot proof as to be useless.
This is why the ratings are so polarised, I think. I split the difference.
Hence not a one star, and not a five, but Three (3) Stars.
Suddenly Stopped Working (3.1.0)
1/5 By Boghead Ben
Ach, what a shame! Since I updated to Sierra 10.12.2, this great wee app has stopped working. Clearly a bug. Editing is fine but I can’t now save any of my work. The app simply won’t browse for a suitable file location and just hangs meaning a force close.
Pity, ‘cos until today I loved this application.
will not let me save and crashes! (3.1.0)
1/5 By daveymoss
Looks good but everytime I try to save it crashes - so useless
Like the effects, but buggy (3.1.0)
2/5 By sabinechar
I have the same issue as another reviewer. When I try to browse to save my edited photo, the app crashes. Seems to be every other photo. So I can edit/save one photo, then on the next try the app crashes and I have to restart it. Frustrating but will have to keep using for now as they have nice effects. But I do wish the developers would sort it out...
WAS great . . . (3.1.0)
1/5 By Alioriginator
I still use this, it is simple and quick. However, I’ve just had to uninstall and reinstall to try and solve a buggy issue with the font size being stuck on a massive 288 (nothing I did got rid of this, if I tried to edit the text it just disappeared!) Hoping my reinstall will solve it . . . ALSO, there used to be some GREAT filters . . . for some reason, these were removed and are no longer options. The “light trails” filter was especially effective.
If the developer reads this - please reintroduce those original filters!
UPDATE : My re-install did not work, font sizing and in fact doing anything with fonts appears to be broken!! FIX IT.
Brilliant app, bugged since last update (3.1.0)
2/5 By cderover
Brilliant app. Since last update bugged - when exporting photo -> clicking browse to select file location it completely bugs and have to force close.
Text overlays are problematic. Disappointed. (3.1.0)
2/5 By ecw360-01
This was wonderful for different effects and adding text, albeit with the limitation that you couldn’t save in a layered format. However, since the recent upgrade, the edges of text becomes uneven when I export. As a result text looks blurry from a distance. And I get this regardless of what resolution or format I export under. Very disappointed.
And I went onto their support site to try and get help, but it kept saying I had entered the Capta form incorrectly, so I was unable to submit a request for help. Very frustrated.
This version doesn’t allow you to save images !!! (3.0.1)
2/5 By JT Assoc
Help..I loved this app for simple phot editing for the web. I upgraded thinking that all upgrades will be improvements only to find that two major functions are no longer working.
1. Saving images
2. Applying text and moving the text to where I wanted it on the image
How can I restore this to what used to be a beautiful, simple and very functional app.
Version 3.0.1 has serious faults (3.0.1)
2/5 By Stanhope56
Just downloaded the new version (3.0.1 and using OSX 10.11.1). Entered text as usual then tried to move the text box around - just refused to go anywhere. Tried to report the fault to Fotor and the message refused to send. I am not at all happy - this is a good simple editor app, please restore to its former glory!!
Don’t download latest version (3/2016) (3.0.1)
3/5 By Mejvis
It worked perfectly until new version - Now IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO SAVE PHOTO after editing (Failed to save photo/collage).
1/5 By Jonukac
Stil not good. Is it possible to get everything back as it was in version 2???
Saving Problem (3.0.0)
2/5 By Aorkoo
After updating this new version of Fotor i am facing a new problem. After selecting a photo to edit & ending of editing when i went to save the photo then the new edited fotor picture was not export as before it was. After saving the picture when i checked it where the [icture i saved i found its size is about 286 kb not as usual as before like 15 mb & even it wasn’t a picture it is like a black background or something else. i am facing this problem on edit & batch section werether the collage section is ok….so what i have to do to solve the problem of export photo from edit & batch section ??
Ruined by last update (3.0.0)
1/5 By Stainless1982
This used to be an excellent editing app. Now all of the effects have been changed to the one’s in the online version (which are all terrible) and all of the effects I used on a regular basis are now gone. Please change them back!!!
5/5 By Roger The Dodgers
For a free app you cannot fault this. It does loads of effects which take ages in Photoshop and is much more fun.
Good App Keeps Crashing (2.0.3)
3/5 By AdamL68
Good app with lots of free features BUT worthless as it keeps crashing new release ASAP please
Simple app makes photos look even better (2.0.3)
5/5 By Dibz10
Although I’d like to be using enthusiast tools such as Lightroom or Photoshop, I find the learning curve quite steep. With Fotor I can do a fair amount of photo editing which really makes the colours pop - something between your super simple Instagram filter and Lightroom.
Only thing I’d like to see is the ability to apply settings to areas of the photo, such as lightening up just the sky for example.
Great app, keeps crashing (2.0.3)
4/5 By Nicolartay
Love the app, my fav photo editing app for mac. Easy to use. But please fix the crashing issue, annoying when mid way through an edit. Also an a vignette style after choosing a filter like instagram lets you
Excellent App (2.0.2)
5/5 By ikenna okpala
Simply an excellent and amazing app. Well done guys for making my photo editing so easy and classical.
Just crashes (2.0.2)
1/5 By farthingate
You work on adding text to a photo, then try and export but it crashes. Restart then same thing happens.
2/5 By NikiSamson
I've had this for a long time now. I can't update cause i have to have version 10.7 now. allows me to edit one picture then crashes. shouldn't have to be forced to update my mac to be able to use this. before i could do nothing but praise this software. now im disappointed
Does not save (2.0.2)
2/5 By Jakemeister14
having looked on the app store i was glad to see this…now im glad to see the back of it! ok its free i shouldnt complain but i have done much better pictures on my phone and it saves. I have tried many times and re started the computer yet still it wont save so a total waste of time.
Great but.. (2.0.2)
4/5 By kelwyn68
I have used this a couple of times to edit phots and place text on and do other effects. It is simple, intuitive and very powerful.
There is a but, that it appears to be “buggy” in that in crashes after sharing to Facebook and then returning to the picture, there doesn’t seem to be a button for returning to your picture unless you are supposed to just click on your picture again to cancel the share, but that is when it crashed for me.
Other than that it works very well and was very simple to edit and change anything I wanted.
Love the borders and effects to change to colours as they are all useful.
Keep up the good work but please sor tout the bug - thanks.
Better than paint (2.0.2)
5/5 By Quirky :-)
It is a simple program to use, a must have on the MAC.
5/5 By Beanstalkjack
Had it for ages but never used it, until now. Damn this app is good. I love it!
very basic (2.0.2)
1/5 By garlandsmith
This app does not really offer anything extra to what your phone apps can do ...
it's very basic, some filters and tools and that's all.
Its a great app tho (2.0.2)
5/5 By HK KHAN
This is a really cool app, i always use this for editing pics and then uploading it onto facebook, instagram etc :)
would rate it 200 out of 100 ;)
Good Photo Editor (2.0.2)
5/5 By Ghost Hunter London UK
really good program, but needs an option of a 16-9 ratio on making collages for todays wide screen macs, hope they make an update for this soon.
What an excellent, easy to use photo editor (2.0.1)
5/5 By Magdajack
This is an awesome piece of software. It lets me play about with my photos without needing to know too much - it's very user-friendly but gives a very professional looking end product. It doesn't take long to navigate your way around with it and within 5 minutes you're producing excellent results. I'm relatively new to taking photographs - have been a happy snapper for years but have just started out with a half-decent camera but needed something to add a bit of polish. The plethora of editing software is mind-numbing but Fotor let me dip a toe in the water and I'm delighted with my results so far.
Needs Splash (2.0.1)
4/5 By D4wod
I absolutely love this app and is my go to. However, I would like to see a ‘Splash’ effect, it’s where it converts your photo to black and white and lets you add colour to areas you want, such as adding colour to the petals of the flower and the background is black and white. That would make it 5 stars for me.
Fantastic app (2.0.1)
5/5 By Mancub321
Great app, quickly let's you edit and add text to photos and images really easily. Simple to use and very user-friendly interface.
