Every small business could use a handy tool that makes their workday more streamlined, easier, and less stressful. And it doesn’t hurt if it’s free.

You can brighten colors, make a collage, use a frame to emphasize the best part of your photo, add text, and you can even use overlays to make your photo more dynamic.

But your laptop isn’t the only place you can use Fotor. You can also download the app for your iPhone or Android at a low cost, making it accessible and relevant to most every business owner and professional out there, including you. Just one look at Fotor’s website shows you how easy it is to navigate without previous photo-editing experience. One click and it will do it all for you.
