FREE (AS IN BEER) PHOTO EDITING SOFTWARE

Filed at 12:16 pm under by dcobranchi

Fotor requested a paid review of their Photo Effects photo editing software. They didn’t request any kind of control of what I said or even the right to review the, er, review prior to publishing.

I’ve been playing with it on and off for a couple of weeks now. It’s pretty powerful compared to other free software available (i.e., Picasa). It’s all basically push button options. A nice feature is that there’s a thumbnail version of what your photo would look like with each of the various digital filters applied.

Some of the filters are pretty slick. Here’s a before and after using Comics B&W.

Hogwarts B&W

A minor quirk, clicking Save As doesn’t bring up the normal pop up unless you first change the file name.

Although I haven’t tried any of them yet, there are downloadable versions for most common platforms (Sorry, COD, no Linux).

If you’re looking for some nice free editing software, Photo Effects is worth a look.
