When I was contacted by Candy of Fotojet to conduct a review of this free web graphic designer, and write about it on my blog, i didn’t want to do it.
At first I thought to myself, what is Fotojet? Never heard of this name before, and why should I write a review about the product?
However, after over a month when they first contacted me for a review of Fotojet, I was contacted again for the same purpose – to write a review on Fotojet on my website.
After the second request, I decided to go ahead with the review of the product.
As a result, here are my discoveries.
What is Fotojet?

It works brilliantly on you browser and there are no installations required. At the moment, there is no mobile version of Fotojet available.

Fotojet is a breathtaking web app with unique functionalities. It is similar to other photo editor and graphic design tools such as Canva, but it is different.
It is a welcome tool for virtually anyone in the social media and content marketing industry, bloggers, freelancers, graphic designers, etc.
This tools is so easy to use that it makes you an expert right there at whatever you’re working on.
Graphic design as we know, is a skill that one has to learn in a considerable amount of time to be considered an expert.
However, for people like me who didn’t learn the craft, you become an expert designer when you use this software.
In fact, I can comfortably transform my photos into remarkable masterpieces in the shortest time ever.
As a blogger, freelance writer, social media & content marketer, this is one of the best tools for my work.
This web app will help you accomplish just anything on all social media platforms, such as:
- Google+ cover
- Instagram images
- Facebook cover
- Email headers
- YouTube banner
- Twitter header
- Images to share on your social media channels, etc.
Looking at how simple this web app works, and the different features available which are all packed within this tool, one can rightly say that Fotojet was designed for those who have no knowledge in graphic design.
One beautiful thing to note is that, with all the many facets of Fotojet, it is free for users online.
Nevertheless, there is also a paid version known as Fotojet Plus. This version comes with a lot more features.
I didn’t use the paid version – Fotojet Plus, because I was overwhelmed with the amazing features available on this free tool.
I was skeptical the first time Candy asked me to review the product and write a review about it. Now I strongly recommend it to everyone.
