When Candy contacted me to perform a Fotojet review 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 that name before, and why should I write a review about the product?
However, after over a month she reached out to me again for the same purpose – to write a review on Fotojet on my website. As a result of the second request, I decided to go ahead with the analysis of the product.
Hence, here are my discoveries.
What is Fotojet?
Fotojet is a powerful free web graphic designer, photo editor, and collage Maker, all-in-one software that allows you to transform your images into a sensation. It works brilliantly on your browser with no installations required. At the moment, there is no mobile version of Fotojet available.

Wrapping It Up
Fotojet is a breathtaking web app with unique functionalities. It is similar to other photo editor and graphic design tools, 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 tool is so easy to use that it makes you an expert right there at whatever you’re working. 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. It enables you to create beautiful images for:
- Instagram posts
- Facebook cover
- Email Headers
- YouTube banner
- Twitter header
- Pictures to share on all 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 is for those who do not know graphic design. One beautiful thing to note is that, with all the many facets of Fotojet, it is free for users online.
Here is a simple design I made in just about six minutes;
Nevertheless, there is also a paid version known as Fotojet Plus. This version comes with a lot more features. I didn’t use the Fotojet Plus paid version because I was overwhelmed with the fantastic features available on this free tool. I was skeptical the first time Candy asked me to review the product. Now I strongly recommend it to everyone.
