Adobe Photoshop has long been the industry standard in raster graphics editing tools. That means its PSD file format is also a standard. You’ll come across images and other graphics assets in the PSD format out there in the wild, and you’ll need Photoshop to use them. And as you probably know, Photoshop is far from cheap.

Wouldn’t it be great if a cheaper alternative to Photoshop exists that can handle and work with PSD files and templates? Here’s something better than that, something free.

Besides being free, the Photopea online image editor is easy enough to describe: it creates and edits Photoshop PSD images. It exports to a bunch of different image formats. It supports other tool formats as well, like the Sketch App (Mac), GIMP, and CorelDraw.

The site does run ads (it’s got to pay the bills), but you can have those stripped off with a cheap Premium account. Nothing unusual.

What else? It says it just wants to be the most advanced and affordable photo editor. Well, why the heck not? It’s on its way!
