ENDED! FotoJet Designer Online Graphic Design App Review and Giveaway

Note: Giveaway has now ended and winners have been notified. Thank you to all who entered and congrats to the winners!

How many of you love photo design software that you can use to make your own invitations, collages, posters and marketing and social media images? I think we all love that stuff.  For some of us, it's just an ends to a means.  For others, it's a fun hobby.  I'm not gonna lie.  I could get sucked up into one of these programs and spend hours playing around (as I've done this morning).

***I've recently been given the opportunity to try out a software program called FotoJet Designer.  I was given a free copy to facilitate my review.  All opinions are 100% mine. They are also allowing us to host a giveaway!  We will be giving away 2 copies for Mac & 2 copies for Windows.*** 

The giveaway image below was made from an Instagram template on the app.  I added image, text and clip art.  It only took a couple minutes.  It was pretty easy once I got the hang of it.  You can hear more of my experience below.

FotoJet Designer is a Graphic Design app that helps you create these types of images:

Posters, invitations, cards, magazine covers, flyers, business cards, logos, social media images, including Facebook headers, YouTube cover images, Google+ cover images, Twitter headers and posts that are scaled to work for each network.  Plus, you have the option of creating your own size images if none of the templates work for you.


There is a free version that has ads and limited options.  Plus, there will be a watermark on all projects in the free version.  If you choose to upgrade to enjoy ad-free creations and more options, it is $4.99/month billed monthly OR $2.91/month if you pay $34.99/year up front.


The program is easy to download and use.  Just follow the directions on the screen.  It will create a desktop icon if you wish so that you can always find it easily to create your projects.


I thought the program was fairly easy to use.  If you've used other graphic design software before, you will probably be able to understand how to use it pretty quickly.  It seems to be user friendly.  It did take me a couple seconds to figure some of the features out, but they're pretty standard.

If you're designing something, and you add an image, you have the option of cropping the picture, flipping or rotating the image, deleting the image, moving the image forward or back in your arrangement, etc.

One thing I found I didn't like was that when I was trying to add an image to an Instagram image template for example,  that it always seemed to add the image in the middle of the template and then I had to move it where I wanted it.  And for some reason, I always had a duplicate still in the center.  I might have accidentally been double clicking when it only needs a single click.   I would like to be able to add it directly to the spot I want it.  It took me a little bit to get used to that.  There was a lot of deleting that I had to do at that point, but I suppose it's all a learning curve.

All other features seemed to be easy to use, with the exception of saving it to my computer correctly. I didn't realize the first 3 things that I created got saved to my computer as a JET file, which I couldn't open.  And it's too much time and trouble for me to figure out how to open a JET file or get the correct software to be able to open a JET file.  There is a better way to save the file, which I figured out AFTER creating 3 images.   Use the disk icon instead of the ". . . "  The ". . ." will lead to a tab that says "More" and then "Save Project" Do NOT do this, unless you have a way to open JET files. When you use the "disk" you have the option of saving it as a JPEG or PNG file, which is easier to use. There. . . . . I saved you some time & frustration!  Ha!
One other issue that I had was a slight lag in some functions.  Some parts of the program seem to run slow, but that could just be because of my computer and because of my learning curve.

Even with my small issues and learning curve, I've had a lot of fun using the app this morning.  Here are some examples I made quickly just to try out the software.  I created an Instagram image, a magazine cover (fun!), and a Pinterest image (not my best work, but it was my first attempt at using the software at all!).

Here are some of the things that you can add to the templates to create your own gorgeous graphics and images:

Photos -- Add your own photos from your computer, Facebook or internet search (580,000 images)
Text -- 30 fonts to choose from with the options of changing colors, adding outlines (as above in the Magazine Cover) , fading, etc.
Clipart -- Can choose from images that they have or search the internet.


Once you create images, you can also share to your networks:  Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest or Tumblr.
