Fotor Photo Editor - Indie app of the day
What is Fotor Photo Editor?
As the name implies, Fotor Photo Editor is a photo editor on Android. It’s been around for a while but was recently updated to version 2.0 and with that came a host of new features, a new UI, and plenty of other features. It’s free to use with in app purchases.
Fotor Photo Editor’s claim to fame is its many options and unique editing style. You can do a bunch of things such as control brightness, contrast, sharpness, and other basic photo editing tools. You can also apply filters and effects along with some more advanced photo editing tools if you need them. A lot of it is niche stuff that many average users won’t need or use but it is there if you want to play around or if you need it.
Editing photos is pretty simple but what we really liked was how images were edited. When applying many effects, filters, and tools, you can control how, where, and how strong filters and editing tools are applied. For instance, there is a line editor that lets you apply filters in different strengths as a gradient across photos. There is another tool that lets you apply effects around an object in the photo but not on the object. It takes a moment to get used to but it can help create some pretty artsy photos once you learn how to do it.
The UI is well designed and easy to maneuver. It’s bright which is a nice touch in terms of design and the tools are easy to access along the bottom. Along with all the aforementioned features, you’ll also find an auto-enhance mode, stickers, a mode to add text, and even a collage mode.
