When I was approached by Fotojet to review their online photo and graphic design editor. I was intrigued. With Fotojet, you can make anything from social media images to posters to magazine covers and flyers.     At first, I thought this is similar to Canva which is another online photo and graphic design editor. I use Canva a lot which is fab for those with limited graphic design skills and I am familiar with Adobe Photoshop (which I use less often!)  so wanted to see what else Fotojet could offer.

First impressions, well it looked very much like Canva when I first logged in and to use most tools and formats it is free but a stripped down version of Canva. This was because there wasn’t as many options than I am used to seeing when I log in to Canva.  Fotojet works in three sections these are the design, collage and photo editing sections. To use most tools and formats it is free but there is a paid version where you have a better choice of tools. With that I decided to create a few pictures to see how it worked.

Essentially the method of creating images and designs it was very much uploading your images and dragging and dropping them. They had this lovely collage function which I had a go on and it certainly makes the blog look different.

I decided to edit a photo of myself and I was impressed at how improved the photos looked. The first photo below is the original photograph of me and the second one was when I had used the tint tool, my hair looks so much blonder and my skin looks so much better, not pale and pasty.

 

So would I recommend Fotojet? It is a nice little program, however I have used Canva a while and there are more editing options. So if you are a beginner or may find lots of tools over daunting or just want to create some social media images then it is fab.

Have you used Fotojet?
