The holidays are fast approaching, and that means photos aplenty. Whether you’re going on vacation or hosting family and friends, most folks end up getting a lot of mileage out of their cameras around this time of year. Now’s also a great time to get hold of and get used to a quality photo editing app, so that you can enhance your pictures for sharing online or adding to greeting cards, postcards and gifts. And that’s why we’re checking out PhotoCat.
Loaded with simple editing tools and a range of extra features perfect for adding fun and cheer to photos, this new app is perfect for home users young and old. And those of you who’re celebrating Christmas are in for a real treat, as PhotoCat has a bunch of special yuletide effects and decorations to play with! Let’s see how easy it is to edit our photos with this new kid on the block, and how it stacks up against the competition.
It’s been said that the world would be a better place if everybody knew how to edit their photos. Okay, fine, I just made that up. But it’s true, though — images are so much a part of our digital lives that being able to post quality pictures has become a necessary skill. And with the wide range of easy-to-use imaging apps available for every platform, there’s really no excuse for using poor, boring images anymore.
Today we’re taking a look at a new player in the editing game, and it’s called Fotor. With its array of tools and effects, this app offers plenty of scope for adding a creative touch to your shots. And while it’s simple enough for novices to get into, Fotor is also a great option for those familiar with photography, to work quickly with images wherever they are. Let’s dive in!
Image editing used to be a challenge for home users – whether you need to remove a blemish from a person’s face, add a little character to a street scene or boost the colors on your vacation photos before printing – but apps like Picasa, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Pixelmator and even those bundled with cameras have helped a great deal.
However, as something of a shutterbug I’ve used a large number of these and couldn’t find anything that hit the sweet spot of usability, features, quality editing tools and effects, and fun (yes, apps can be fun if they’re built well) – until I came across PicMonkey. This great new app allows you to work on your photos using a ton of tools, has enough effects to make Instagram regulars drool, and is dead-simple to use. Is this your next photo editing suite? Let’s try it to find out. (more…)
