Nokia’s Creative Studio is an excellent photo editing app for its Lumia devices, but there are things that it isn’t that good at. Collages is one, adding borders another. Fortunately there is a excellent free app that can plug all these holes, and give the Creative Studio quite a run for its money. Fotor is free, and has been updated to take advantage of Windows Phone 8. It performs fluidly even on slightly lower spec’d devices like the Lumia 620 and 720, and makes for a very pleasant editing experience.
Inside settings you can choose to edit/save in the high resolution mode or go slightly lower res. for faster performance. The Collage option is fully featured, you can choose aspect ratios, designs, and even move the bars to increase or decrease space there is for each photo. Then, you can even add a pattern.
The borders can be curved or straight and you can choose the width as well. The app also comes with a one tap enhance mode, which has three levels.
You can use the Tilt Shift option to change focus, and also play with the contrast, saturation and blur/sharpen settings.
And finally, there are filters.
All in all, installing Fotor is a no brainer. Its free and fun.
