My FotoJet Designer Software Review and Experiences
I was able to do some simple designs with FotoJet Designer Software few minutes from installation. It is fast and easy to use. It took me less than 2 minutes to create some simple graphic designs with the aid of the default templates distributed with it.
Coming from someone that have used a simple photo design tool like photoshine, I was somewhat impressed with location of the design toolbar. With this toolbar, one can easily undo, redo, zoom and perform simple quick tasks. The size and dimensions of my design were shown on this bar for easy editing.
I tried creating a more premium design with this app but found out that FotoJet Designer doesn’t come with full photo editing options and as such will need one to use one of its online tools from time to time.
One of such tools is the FotoJet Collage Maker and the photo editor function. I’d have preferred a complete offline tool without the need of going online to make photo collages.
To me, it would have been a monster app, if the three functions (FotoJet Designer, FotoJet Photo Editor, and FotoJet Collage Maker) were merged into one.
Finally, FotoJet Designer makes graphic design seems simple, easy and effortless. Even an average person with little or no knowledge of graphic design can create unique designs (to an extent) with this software.
Having shared my view on FotoJet designer software, I’d like to know what you think about this app and/or similar photo design software.
