Photopea - Free Photoshop Alternative No Download (Web Tool)

Photo and image editing can be carried out in a wide variety of apps. But Photoshop comes with an annoying subscription, Affinity Photo costs just under 55 euros and CoralDRAW for the Mac is much more expensive. GIMP There are still some, but you have to work your way into that too. Anyone who has ever had to do with Photoshop, now needs the appropriate functions for a two picture and does not want to download any software, can Photopea try out. Photopea is a free Photoshop, Affinity and GIMP alternative that you can use directly in your web browser - on Mac, iPad, iPhone and PC.

Instead of creating a graphic in my standard program, I created the image for this post directly in Photopea. Photopea offers useful tools, lots of fonts, guidelines and even an automatic alignment to the center of the image. And of course other options that I haven't tried;)

Photopea - Create or edit photos in the web tool

I came across Photopea by chance because I saw a screenshot of it on Twitter. When I tried it out, I really liked the many functions that are reminiscent of Photoshop and Affinity Photo. In my short test, I also created two images that you can find as a preview image of this post and above this paragraph as a banner. The user interface is in English, but if you have already worked with a somewhat more extensive photo editing program, you will recognize a lot without labeling.  For example, you can create layers, define guidelines, use effects and filters, and, and, and. The use on the iPhone is awkward, but possible;)

Open and save many file formats with Photopea

Lately I already got mine Problems with .cdr files described. My solution was an online file conversion tool so that the file could be used as a PDF. But now I also know Photopea, and this tool opens, in addition to many other formats, .cdr from the CoralDRAW app. So you can edit a .cdr file on the Mac and don't even have to drag any software onto the hard drive: D

  • Photopea opens the following file formats: PSD (Adobe Photoshop), XCF (GIMP), Sketch (Sketch App), XD (Adobe XD), CDR (CoralDRAW), JPG, SVG, PNG, GIF, etc.
  • Photopea saves the following formats, among others: PSD, JPG, SVG, PNG, GIF, PDF, EMF, WEBP, BMP, PPM, TIFF, ICO, DDS, TGA, RAW
  • Further information, tips and instructions: "Learn" page of the tool

Save = download

The files created or edited are not saved on a server. If you click on a save option or “Export as” in the “File” menu and then select the desired file format, you save the image or the project file on your hard drive. When using the standard settings on the Apple Mac, Safari saves the downloaded file in the Downloads folder. So you can create a picture directly in the web browser and save it locally. You can also save the draft of a graphic created on the way as a .psd file in order to refine it later on the computer with Photoshop or Affinity Photo. So whether you are a thrifty savior or simply do not have your mobile graphics tool with you, Photopea is always there for you: D
