So I’ve just discovered a new free online app called Photopea.
One word describes it: Wow.
I am stunned.
What is Photopea? Simple. It’s a web-based port, or clone, of Photoshop. Yes, the Photoshop.
It’s no secret I’m a heavy user of Photoshop. I use it extensively in the production of Yesterland Waltz. Bumper screens, titles, the popup trivia text, etc. — all Photoshop.
Photoshop is far and away the 800 pound gorilla when it comes to image editing tools. It’s a powerhouse. If you can imagine it, pretty much, you can do it. But Photoshop has its one catch — its subscription model.
To use Photoshop, you don’t buy the product once and own it for life like with other software. Instead you pay a monthly subscription. As long as you pay your subscription, you can continue to use Photoshop.
And the subscriptions aren’t exactly cheap.
Then today I needed to do some image editing on a computer that doesn’t have Photoshop installed on it. It was in a pinch, so I Googled “free online image editing software” and voila! Up popped Photopea.
Seriously, folks, this is Photoshop in your web browser. No joke. No exaggeration. It’s incredible. Absolutely the same look, same feel, exact same interface and behavior. This is incredible.
Photoshop in your browser…and it’s FREE.
I just discovered Photopea today and am still experimenting with it but I have yet to find one thing I can do with Photoshop that I can’t do with Photopea.
