Photopea, an online Photoshop clone, free and with most of its functions


Long ago, when I used my now-old iMac a lot more, I was more used to using Photoshop than I am now. In fact, I don't remember having GIMP installed and my little edits, like what you see above these lines, I did in Adobe software. It was not until later, when I started using Linux more, that I decided to use the GNU Image Manipulation Program, and, although I am getting used to it and I like it more every day, for some things you have to take many steps. For that reason, I can't stop glancing at Photopea.

But what is Photopea and what does it have to do with Photoshop? It's about a online image editor that is like an Adobe clone. Many of the tools, such as the one to remove unwanted objects or the bevel and embossing, are available, and we can use it on any device with a web browser. The truth is that on tablets and mobiles it does not work so well, but it is not impossible.

Photopea allows you to do 30 steps for free

The best of Photopea for Photoshop users is that everything looks the same, the menus are all in the same place and the keyboard shortcuts are also the same. On the other hand, it is very positive that it is not a new service; Its developer started it eight years ago and it is still available, so we are not talking about something fleeting. Ivan Kuckir has made a lot of money with his idea, so the logical thing is that he continues with his development and adds improvements over time.

Photopea It's freeas long as we don't need to perform more than 30 steps. You have to look sideways at the history so as not to lose the work done, but we can always export to PSD, open the file and take another 30 steps. Under subscription you can take up to 60 steps and have access to all the functions, and the prices vary between $ 9 / month for a user and $ 400 / year for a team of 20.

Although has been around for a long time, we did not want to stop publicizing this great tool here at Linux Addicts. And it is that, for example, GIMP has Resynthesizer to eliminate unwanted objects, but it is developed in Python 2 and does not work very well in the latest versions of the editor unless the flatpak version. In addition, Photopea will serve most users, so it is worth knowing its existence and saving it in favorites.
