F is for Fotor: ABC’s guide to shoestring marketing

Fotor is my new go-to tool when creating Facebook status updates for business.  It is a free, online photo editor — basically like Instagram but with collage making capabilities for your computer.  What makes it even better is that it has a function that helps you easily create cover photos that are compatible with all your social media profiles.

Use Fotor free photo editing to add effects:

Like Instagram, you can add effects to your photos giving them a vintage or other unique look.  Unlike Instagram, you do not have to have a square photo and you don’t have to post after you edit, instead you can save it to use later for a blog post, profile picture, or to add to a photo collage.

Use Fotor free photo editing to create collages:

Unlike Instagram, you can make simple photo collages with Fotor.  This is great if you have multiple photos you’d like to include in a status update or blog post but don’t want to take up a lot of space or to attract more attention with one shot.

Use Fotor free photo editing to create cover photos for all your social media profiles:

Best of all, you can use Fotor to make cover photos for all your social media profiles.  One of my pet peeves is seeing an incorrectly formatted cover photo.  What’s frustrating is that every social media site uses different cover photo sizes so one photo does not fit all.  So, instead of looking up the dimensions of each cover photo, then messing endlessly with Paint to find the right type of photo to get to the precise configuration, use Fotor to do it for you quickly and stress free!
