In terms of the tool set, Fotor is much like Photo Editor. However, if you were to explore the list of pre-defined effects, you would find that they are different here.

This one is a fun based photo app that allows you to play around with the environment of the photo. It is a cloud based service that lets you select an effect from a huge collection. Post that, it detects the selected image and applies the desired effect. I am sure you are going to enjoy applying the effects that it offers.
