When opening the application, there are two big buttons: Open a photo and Collage. The “open a photo” button will allow you to edit whichever picture you want to. You’ll find there the “1-tap enhance” button – that’s like the quick way of improving your picture. Just touch or click it and your image’s will automatically be improved. With the Edit option you can adjust the following paremeters of your picture:

  • Brightness
  • Contrast
  • Saturation
  • Temp
  • Tint
  • Blur/Sharpen

What me, and many other users would like to see is a button that would allow you to reset to default the changes. Next, the Crop button allows you to cut your image and choose the portion you’d like to take. It also comes with some preset cropping frames that you can use. What impressed me about this app was the Effects tab where I found A LOT of nice effects that you can apply to your images. So, if you’re that type of person that plays a lot with images, then you’ll find this feature very, very nice. And on a touch-enabled device, this is a real pleasure. So, go ahead and play around with the 5 effects: Classic, Lomo, B&W, Artistic, Dark Corners.

Fotor for Windows 10, Windows 8 comes with a wide range of features

The next button, the Borders button, allows you to add a nice border to your picture. So, if you’re looking to add an extra flavor to your picture, like using it in a electronical postcard, this nice feature should help you out. Another creative feature that I didn’t really encounter on other photo editing apps for Windows 10, Windows 8 and not only, is the Tilt-Shift Mode. Basically, it will allow you to change your image’s focus, as if you were to take the picture now. Somehow, for those that are aware, this is similar to what Lytro cameras do.

Next up, the Text tab allows you to add some text to your picture to further customize it. What I particularly liked about this feature was the Text template that allowed you to add a small shape around your text – really cool. What I didn’t like was the poor diversity of fonts and I didn’t frankly like none of them. More text, more artistical and classy fonts will definitely add a lot of style to Fotor for Windows 10< Windows 8. And after you are all done, you can save your image in .jpeg, .bmp, .png and .tiff formats.

Also, don’t forget about the Collage tab upon opening the application. It will allow you to play around with multiple pictures and make a beautiful collage. You can add here, as well, a border and modify its theme and color. The Fotor app for Windows 10, Windows 8 is, and I’ll have to agree, one of the best apps for all-in-one photo editing so use it with all your confidence! Check out the gallery from above and try out the app in the Windows Store.
