I'm not one to play with photos much. I have one photo that I can remember editing, and that was of my daughter sitting on the floor of a glass box in the Willis Tower. A man's legs were behind her, and I cloned the city view to delete those legs. That might all change now that I've found Fotor online photo editing.
The editor is free, and you can create an account or sign in with your Facebook. There is also a free mobile app, if you want to this on your phone.
To start playing around, I put a random photo in, just to experiment a bit with the site.
|This is the original, plain picture that I took just because I thought it was cute.|
My son took his 'wolfie' to the airport and loved that little stuffed doggie all the way from Detroit to Orlando. ;)
|My first attempt at using Fotor's free online photo editor.|
The crop was as simple as a drop and drag.
|Once I aligned my square to eliminate the 'busy' in the picture, and lightened everything up a tad,|
I hit 'apply' and ended up with this photo. Much nicer. I saved it to my computer to print later.
|I selected (7) pictures from my computer and let the montage place them randomly.|
You can put them where you want too, and reposition them as you like.
|Playing with the tilt-shift category|
|My daughter helping her little bro. down the slide|
when they were both much younger. ;)
There was a 'Beauty' option on the Fotor site too (under the tilt-shift category), and I played around with it a bit to see how it worked. I selected a photo of my two youngest...the one on the left being the original and the one on the right being the re-do. You can see the kiddie tattoos on my son on the left (his mustache under his lip, and the tatts on his arm). I think the fake tattoos add to the charm of the photo ;) but I was just testing options out, and a quick couple of clicks (and if I took time I could make it better) took the tattoos right off.
I've just started to explore this site, but I can tell it's going to be fun to learn more about it. I saw an option to make cards, and I love photo cards, so I'll be exploring that some time soon, I'm sure. The things I've shown you are really just the tip of the iceberg. If you're looking for a many-options, high quality, cool photo editor, that's 100% free, I suggest heading on over to Fotor. You can use it for photos on your computer, or you can use it for photos that are on your Facebook, Flickr, Dropbox, or Picassa (to name some of the other options). You can also use webcam effects to edit photos! In short, I can say I love this site, and I think I'll finally be jumping on the photo editor bandwagon, because some bandwagons are really fun to be on. :)
