Fotor is a photo editing platform.[1]

Fotor photo editor[edit]

Founded in 2012,[2] Fotor Photo Editor can be used online[3] or downloaded as a free mobile and computer application[4] compatible with Windows, Android, and Apple.[5] It is used to adjust and alter images, both photographic and non-photographic.[6][7][8] As of 2014, the apps were supported in fourteen languages.[9]

In addition to basic photo editing tools such as cropping,[10] red eye removal,[11][12] the use of stickers and overlays,[13] photo deblurring,[14][15] and aperture addition.[12] Fotor can also be used for graphic design and collage making.[11] Though the initial app is free, some options are only available through an in-app purchase,[12] or via the Fotor Pro version.[3] Fotor also has a module dedicated to making collages and smart templates with support for image layers.[16][17]

In 2016 Fotor updated its HDR curves adjustment to its platform.[12] In late 2017, Fotor added a custom aspect ratio option to its collage function and altered its tilt-shift algorithm.[18]

Financing[edit]

In 2012 Fotor raised $3 million in their Series A round of financing,[19] and in 2017 they then raised $7.6 million in a Series B round.[20]
