Fotor: Review

I would like to say hi!

Multiple versions of a fantastic mid-level editor.


  • Enables group processing.
  • Available as a download or as a web application.
  • Possibilities of easy repair.


  • Many functions are not available in the free edition.
  • Intrusive advertisements.

Fotor is a good middle-of-the-road solution for people who want a little more freedom than pure template-driven tools like Canva but aren’t quite ready for GIMP or Pixlr E.

Fotor has the advantage of being free to use, both in your web browser and as a download for Mac or Windows.
The downloaded version also includes a batch processor, which is Fotor’s real selling point.

You can apply the same filters, frames, or touch-ups to a collection of photos using a batch processor, which is ideal if all your photos are slightly overexposed or if you want to create a slideshow of consistent images.

Unfortunately, the web-based version is difficult to use because of the numerous advertisements, and many of the best features, such as the one-click repair filter, are only available with the commercial version of Fotor.
