Review of FotoJet

Fotojet is an online design application. It enables you to create banners, email headers and other types of graphic very easily. It is template-driven, so even if, like me, you're not confident about your graphic design skills, you can still produce something worthwhile.

The layout reminds me of Canva to some extent. It is very easy to use: select what you'd like to do, choose a template, drop your photo(s) into it, and edit away.

The editing options are quite impressive, as you can see from the screenshot (click the link at the bottom of this article for the screenshot).

I did find it to be slightly on the slow side despite using a very fast internet connection. Also, in the photo editing section it isn't obvious how you can upload one of your own pictures.

If you opt for the premium version, which will cost you around $35 a year, you gain access to a lot of templates and more photo editing features, I daresay you will also benefit from any enhancements made, as the program is online.

Being online, the program can be used from any kind of computer. From that point of view, if you do a lot of photo editing or design creation, FotoJet premium is a sensible option. If you're not sure whether it's for you, use the free version for a while.
