Fotor is an online photo editing platform.

Fotor's software is available on mobile devices, desktop computers, and online as a web app.[3] Fotor One-Tap Enhance is a tool designed to improve common imaging problems.[4][3] Fotor GoArt is a tool to turn photos into classical painting style artwork.[5] Fotor SDK is a solution to users' graphics-related needs[6]


Founded in 2012,[7] Fotor Photo Editor can be used online[8] or downloaded as a free mobile and computer application[9] compatible with Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS.[10] It is used to adjust and alter images, both photographic and non-photographic.[11][12][13] As of 2014, the apps were supported in fourteen languages.[14]

In addition to basic photo editing tools such as cropping,[15] red eye removal,[16][17] the use of stickers and overlays,[18] photo unblurring,[19] and aperture addition,[17] Fotor can also be used for graphic design and collage making.[16] Though the initial app is free, some options are only available through an in-app purchase,[17] or via the Fotor Pro version.[8] Fotor also has a module dedicated to making collages and smart templates with support for image layers.[20][21]

In 2016, Fotor updated its HDR curves adjustment to its platform.[17]

In late 2017, Fotor added a custom aspect ratio option to its collage function and altered its tilt-shift algorithm.[22]

In 2018, Fotor Launched PxBee that entered the stock photo industry.[23]
