I was recently contacted by someone on PearlMountain Technology's team about a new free online collage maker - FotoJet. Being that I'm as graphics challenged as I am, I'm always on the lookout for something quick and easy with templates I can edit to add my own text/images to use for social media posts, blog posts, etc. I've been using Canva for awhile and once I familiarized myself with their software, it was pretty simple to work with. But as I read this email about this new software, a few things caught my attention:
FotoJet is a free online collage maker that enables users to quickly create amazing photo cards, collages and posters without the hassles of downloading or installing. It’s as easy as 1,2,3 to use it:
- Choose from 320+ templates for collage, photo card, poster and social media to get started.
- Add photos and freely customize the collage as you wish.
- Freely save collage as JPG/PNG or directly share it via Facebook.
So, I decided to put FotoJet to the test...check out this screencast video as I use the FotoJet software for the first time:
Now that I've attempted to use their software that's "as easy as 1,2,3 to quickly create amazing collages, and more" - I can't help but chuckle. As you can see from the screencast video, I did not find it easy to work with. There were definitely some limiting capabilities (not being able to move text boxes was the biggest drawback for me). I may spend a little more time playing around with the software to see if I can figure things out better but my first reaction is to stick with what I already know - Canva - and pass on FotoJet.
I would love to hear your thoughts. Have you used FotoJet? Did you find it easy to work with? Any tips for me?
