New release of Photopea is out! It has 29 970 lines of code. Play with it at the main site.

New features

  • Adjustment layers

Adjustment layers

Adjustment layers can be present in PSD files since Adobe Photoshop 4.0. Photopea can load these layers from PSD, display them in Layers panel and save them back into PSD file. Brightness/Contrast, Levels, Curves, Exposure, Vibrance, Hue/Saturation layers have full support (new adjustment layers can be created, edited, and rendered by Photopea). And of course, they are processed by the GPU in WebGL mode. New types of adjustments will be implemented in the future.

Parameters of adjustment layer can be edited in a new panel Properties, which is the similar way they are edited in Adobe Photoshop.

Blending folders

Folder of layers can have its own blend mode and layer style. Instead of a single layer, layer style is applied to a whole content of a folder. For example, if you want to stroke the layer 10 times, you can put it into 10 nested folders and give layer effect to each one of them.
