Photo Editing The Easy Way - Engineer Mommy /* ]]> */
Dec 282016

I am constantly editing photos. Sometimes I need to edit a photo that goes into a blog post because I need to make it brighter or sharper. Sometimes I edit a photo that I intend to display in my home because I need to remove red eyes or whiten teeth. Sometimes I like to create a personalized photo card for a birthday party invitation or Christmas. With the wide variety of convenient features available on Fotor, I can get professional results without much effort.

One of the first features I explored on the Fotor website is their Photo Editing suite. It was so easy and intuitive to spruce up one of my daughter’s photos. There are dozens and dozens of ways to improve photos, including Basic Edits (crop, rotate, resize, etc.), Photo Effects (classic, vintage, scenes, etc.), Beauty Touch-ups (mascara, lip tint, teeth whitening, etc.), Frames, Stickers, and Text Overlay. For my photo, the adjustments I made were teeth whitening, lip coloring, brightening the face and smoothing out the hair. I also added a Halo Effect, Photo Frame and Heart Stickers all over the image. One of my favorite effects was the Pixie Dust brush, which added a gorgeous multi-dimensional dust splatter all over the image. Check out this Before & After comparison! Isn’t it so cool?

The final image is so fun- perfect for displaying on my smartphone!

Another feature I explored is the Cover Maker. Fotor makes it so simple & quick to create gorgeous cover art for all your social media channels. I tried out the Facebook cover photo feature. I love that I can start with a pre-designed template and create something that looks really professional. All of the enhancements were right at my fingertips.

Did you know that Fotor offers many pre-designed photo card templates for various occasions/holidays throughout the year? Check out their gorgeous personalized photo cards and skip the pricey printing store! It’s so convenient to design the cards from the comfort of home and print them out at the local office supply store. Saving money has never been easier or more fun! There are so many gorgeous cards, covers, posts, collage templates and stickers available! You can quickly and easily customize your own card and spread the holiday joy! Using the Collage Maker feature, I was able to take several of my favorite pics of my daughters and create this fun, unique collage.

I love that the collage images are diamond-shaped and that everything in this photo is customizable, including the color of the background, the color of the foreground lines, and the stickers overlaid on top. This photo is definitely going to be printed and framed in my home- I really love the way this turned out!
