Despite being simple, Fotor hosts all the important features like crop, resize, frames, effects, text, flipping, tilt-shift, beautify, brightness, contrast, and temperature adjustments.

Moreover, with the 1-tap enhancement tool, you can quickly analyse and enhance your dull and unexposed photo.

To use Fotor, just click on the button “Edit a Photo” on their homepage, upload the photo and start editing. It’s as simple as that.

Ribbet is an advanced photo editing tool with some interesting features like touch up, curves, effects, Photoshop-like layers, pro adjust, cropping, flipping, frames, etc. The user interface of Ribbet is fairly straight forward. Upload your photo using the “Upload Photo” button on the homepage and start editing the photo with the tools provided on the left side.

You can access a different set of tools by navigating through the top menu. However, while you are editing, you need to save each effect before moving to the other tool.photo-editing-tools-ribbet
