So, you’ve got your shiny Windows 10, 8 or Windows RT device and now you’re looking to enhance your touch and even desktop experience with some awesome applications. And if you’ve got a nice photo collection on your device, then chances are you’ll want to play around with them, add some effects and fix some issues. Fotor is one such application that promises to help you out and actually praises to be the best all-in-one photo editing application.

Fotor App for Windows 10, 8: Photo Editing at its Best

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 I, and many other users would like to see is a button that would allow you to reset the changes to default. 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, 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, 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 artistically and classy drawn 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 software is also available for Android, iOS and Mac. So, if you need to continue your photo editing work on another platform, then Fotor is the right choice for you. Furthermore, Fotor’s online collage tool gives you access to more than 80 collage templates and other exclusive content for only $8.99/month. Fotor also includes 22 unique backgrounds for collages.

The tool also features export options for social media websites and photo platforms such Flickr. In this manner, you can quickly share your photos with the world.

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.
