Flauntr provides users with a collection of tools that allow them to customize their photos in almost any way they want. The application includes many of the same photo editing tools that many mobile phone apps include, however it offers a user friendly interface, web based format and more detailed options than most mobile alternatives.
The Flauntr website welcomes users with a white background and hints of dark pink, green and light blue. The homepage presents users with a list of buttons that allow them to access each available tool. Each button takes the user to a dark page with the site’s photograph uploader. The user must add a photo to begin editing. After doing so, a row of tabs allow the user to jump to other Flauntr tools.
A new user can sign up for a Flauntr account by clicking the dark blue “Register” link in the upper, right hand corner of the homepage. The following page presents the user with a dark pop up box that asks for an optional title as well as a username, password, first and last name, email address and date of birth. The user must also check the small grey box at the bottom of the form to confirm their agreement with the Flauntr terms and conditions before clicking the dark grey “Register” button to submit their information.
All users can create a Flauntr account for free. There is no subscription fees required or other charges for using the website. Users can choose to purchase prints of the photographs they edit, which will cost money. This varies based on the size and quantity the user decides to purchase. Users are not required to purchase any photographs to maintain a Flauntr account.
