Photo editing platform Fotor is part of a crowded field of Photoshop competitors. The software, which has been around since 2012, is fun and easy-to-use. I edited that picture above of the awesome Nicole Glaros during her Everywhere Else keynote using the platform. It was super easy, even for a novice like me.
Fotor has all the basic features of any editing software. They also just added a new feature called Social Media Cover Maker, which helps you easily create covers for all your major social media accounts.
Check out our Q&A with Fotor below and head over to try it out for yourself.
