There comes a point in blogging (and possibly life in general), when pictures from your phone just don’t do it any longer. They’re fun for sharing with family and friends, but the fun just kind of tapers off once you hit 1K + in your folder, and you don’t really know what to do with them. Having over 1,000 low quality photos just wasn’t doing anything for me anymore. That’s why when Fotor asked me to preview their photo editing software, I knew it was time to upgrade. The stars were aligned. So….I purchased a new camera.
Nothing fancy, mind you. While I’d love one of the high quality (high cost) cameras all my friends have, I had to stick to the budget. So I headed to a local Trade Post and found an excellent deal on a DSLR camera and took the plunge! It’s a great camera, albeit a season or two outdated. Which doesn’t really make much difference to me anyways seeing how I actually have no idea what I’m doing anyways (but, that’s what’s Youtube is for, right?) I digress.
I grabbed my two favorite models and hit the town for an impromptu novice photo shoot! Next, I used Fotor to create collages of some of my favorites. I then sent these high quality photos to family and friends, in lieu of the normal low quality shots. They loved them! They can now easily print out their very own photos of the girls, rather than waiting on me to finally get some in the mail (which happens way too infrequently).

Fotor is an awesome app that you can download to your phone, tablet and computer. With Fotor, you can edit photos, create collages, create cards, and even create effortless cover photos for all of your social media outlets. I loved the ease of use, and user friendliness of Fotor, and had fun playing with the different effects. The beauty features allow you to correct blemishes and other features in portraits.
Another great portrait editing app is Beautune. I recently began that system as well, and have been very pleased with the quality! Below is a photo of my daughter and nephew, that I edited with Beautune.
