Photopea 1.6 meets Google Drive

New release of Photopea is out! It has 31 595 lines of code. Play with it at the main site.

New features

  • Available through Google Drive
  • Support for BMP and ICO formats (both opening and export)
  • Improved interface (tabbable input elements, highlighting text input after clicking on the label)

Google Drive

To make Photopea available inside your Google Drive, install it from Photopea at Chrome Webstore (you don't need the Chrome browser, but you must have a Google account). You can also install it to Google Drive through Settings - App management - Add a new app and searching for Photopea.

After installation, doubleclick any PSD file (in Google Drive) to open it using Photopea. You can also open other files (JPG, PNG, ...) using right click - Open with - Photopea. Feel free open multiple files at the same time. When you're done, simply press Ctrl+S to save it back to Google Drive in the original format. You can also create a new PSD inside Google Drive, just click Create - More - Photopea.

There is a new Save button (available through Ctrl+S), which can save the project to its "origin". The origin can be Google Drive, distant server (when you are using Photopea API), or another PSD, when you are editing a Smart Object.

Photopea is limited to updating a file, which already existed in the GD (or was created from the GD). In the future, you will be able to navigate through your Drive structure from Photopea, save a project to multiple locations in multiple formats, etc.
