(Note: I am not an affiliate of FotoJet, and I am not profiting in any way from this review. However, in order to provide a more comprehensive review, FotoJet has provided me with a paid account. This image was made with many of FotoJet’s premium features. However, some of them do come with a free account.)

  • There was a garbage can behind the camera, so I cropped it out.
  • I resized the photo to ensure it would fit on both Twitter and Pinterest. I am confident it will if the length is 900 pixels.
  • I sharpened the camera. When I changed the size, it got blurry.
  • When I increased the highlights and shadows, the camera got brighter.
  • Notice the shadows around the camera. I used the vignette effect. I wanted the red to stand out, so I made the vignette around red camera black. You can change the color.
  • I used focus, radial, and blur, so only the camera is in focus.
  • I intensified the exposure.
  • When I used contrast, I saw a glow around the camera. This was perfect since I wanted the emphasis to be on the camera.
  • I increased saturation and temperature. When I increased the temperature, the glow around the camera turned red.
  • I added a frame with shadows and changed the color of the shadow to red.

  • I uploaded my photo. I have a post coming up on how to increase blog traffic, so I thought the buses would make a relevant image.
  • I chose to resize my image. I wanted to ensure my graphic would fit on Twitter. I know 900 x 600 pixels will work on both Twitter and Pinterest, so I resized the photo to close to those dimensions.
  • The color red does well on Pinterest since it’s eye-catching, but I had an opportunity to make the red really stand out.
  • I chose “Lomo 5” which made the red even more obvious.
  • I clicked “Text”, but the font didn’t show up on the dark bus, so I clicked “Glow.” “Outline” will be a choice for you too. Those choices will come up under “Effects” when you click “Font”. You have many choices for colors of the font and the effects.
  • I moved the text to fit in the windshield of the bus and resized the text. I changed the font of the number so it would stand out.
  • I added a border and resized the width of the inner and outer frames.
  • I clicked “Save” to save the graphic to my computer.

This is another example of a graphic I made with FotoJet’s Editor.

This time, I applied the “Vintage 1” effect and a Polaroid-style frame.

I made “looking” the enlarged word since it matched the subject of the photo– the glasses.

I call this graphic my “Money Tree”. I used it for a post about making money on the Internet.

(Note: My money tree graphic was made with FotoJet’s premium features.)

Here is the original photo:

FotoJet helps #bloggers with #graphicdesign

  1. I Auto Enhanced the photo.
  2. I used the “Color Splash” feature so only the dollar bill would have color. Since the post is about making money, I only wanted the money to have color to draw attention to it.
  3. I really wanted the money to glow, so I increased both the saturation and the temperature.
  4. I had fun using features like Sharpen, Vignette, and Noise.
  5. I used different fonts. Did you notice my blog’s name is outlined in white?
  6. I used a frame that emphasized the stark nature of the photo. Again, I wanted the money alone to stand out.

How to Use FotoJet’s Design Tab

For my blog graphics, I scrolled down to Social Media Post and chose the Pinterest graphic.

The large amount of templates FotoJet has to choose from is amazing.

I chose a free template. Premium templates have a crown on them.

I clicked Add Photo, computer.

I dragged and dropped my photo into the template.

Click on the font to modify the size, format, and style.

If you make a mistake, there is a back arrow at the bottom of the screen.

These are some of the blog graphics I’ve made using FotoJet’s free templates:

I made this graphic with FotoJet’s premium template:

I included a glow on the letters at the top and an outline on the letters underneath.

    I would like to take one more opportunity in 2016 to thank you for the blogging community. No matter how big and influential you have become over this past year you never forgot or ignored the people in YOUR blogging community. We all appreciate what you have done and the sacrifices you have made. Being a full time English and History teacher I do not know where you found the time to always be there for YOUR blogging community. I know there must be thousands more that feel the same way be just don’t express it. I hope you exceed your own personal goals that you set for 2017.

    I haven’t heard of this particular service for creating graphics. This is certainly one area I would like to improve on my blog for 2017!

    I don’t have a lot of need for image editing but I used Picasa until Google discontinued it and I then began using PicMonkey. FotoJet gives me another way to edit my images. Very useful information. Thanks!

      Hi Bill,
      I just learned something from your comments. I did not know that Picasa was discontinued. Disappointing news. Thanks for letting me know. I’m glad you enjoyed my FotoJet article. Happy new year!

    I had been using a paid PicMonkey plan when I started playing with FotoJet to do my review. Both programs are easy and have free plans that work for most people. I’m still not sure which I will renew as a paid plan. I’m getting quite used to FotoJet now, but some things are easier in PicMonkey’s text editor. Other things, though, are easier in FotoJet’s text editor. thanks for linking to my review.

    I am slowly getting back into the mix of Blog hopping and Your Blogs always feature n my hop list. FotoJet sounds like a great resource. How is it different from PicMonkey, Canva or Relay?

    I would love to learn these differences. As a new resource in my arsenal, I would love to know if its worth adding to my list and then go right ahead and utilize it 🙂 #Thanks for sharing at the Pit stop!

  7. Janice Wald | at 9:49 pm

    Hi Julie,
    I feel Canva and FotoJet are comparable. With FotoJet, the lettering is easier. You can add glow or outlines. Some fonts already come with outlines on them.
    As far as everything else, dropping and dragging into a template and changing the lettering already there is the same for both.
    I am not familiar with Relay.
    By the way, I finished your ebook. Impressive! Can you please provide the link, so I can upload my review to Amazon? Thanks.
    Janice
