Hello, my entrepreneurial friends. I’m always searching for great tools to help you start and build your business. Recently I found this online photo editor fotor.com and decided to take it for a test drive to determine if I should recommend it for business graphic needs.
Having previous experience using other top photo and graphic services such as canva and PicMonkey I could compare the editors features.
At first glance I found fotor.com much easier to use than canva and more business-focused then PicMonkey – a plus for us business owners.
Also, I was pleasantly surprised that the free account allows you to create designs, edit, save and download images to use right away. Some of the other services do not allow either saving or downloading forcing you to purchase the paid programs. Thumbs up to fotor.com for their generous free features.
Previously I had been under the incorrect assumption that this service was solely for editing photographs for portrait beauty and to remove backgrounds.
While they do indeed over a full suite of photo editing tools they also have an equally impressive set of image templates to create business graphics such as sale flyers, web banner ads, social media posts, and email campaigns. Get inspired by the many ways you can use this photo text editor by reading these user case studies.
These are the top benefits that fotor.com offers to you as a small business owner:
1- Professional looking graphics that can non-artistic people (like us business folk) can easily DIY
2 – Saves you money because you don’t have to hire a professional graphic artist
3 – Return on investment is awesome. Most of the features can be used with a free account. If you do decide to upgrade to the paid program it is economical at under $10 per month for a tremendous amount of features and templates.
4 – Get work done faster because you do not have to wait for graphic artists to complete the work and send it back to you. In minutes you can create beautiful images and use them instantly.
5 – Easy to use interface. The feature that I was most impressed with is how simple the system is to use for us non-graphic artists folk. It was easy and intuitive to create professional graphics.
