Photopea 2.0

New release of Photopea is out! It has 33 593 lines of code. Play with it at the main site.

New features

  • Ready for Localization!
  • Preserving settings
  • Simple user accounts
  • Paint Bucket tool
  • Colors of layers
  • Several bugs fixed


Starting with this release, Photopea is prepared for localization to other languages. Right now, you can choose between the English and the Czech language, which was added as a proof of concept.

We don't have the capacity to translate Photopea, so we would like to ask you, our users, to do it. We have prepared a Translation App, where you can easily translate Photopea to your language. Share a link with your friend and translate it together. As soon as any language gets 50 - 70 % translated, it will be added to :)

For such purposes, we have created a special OpenWord format, which is free to implement by anybody. The future localization files will also be shared with the open source community.


Preserving settings

During your work with Photopea, you may change the settings of the environment (enable rulers, change the foreground or background color, change the language, more settings are coming in the future). Since this release, Photopea remembers these settings, so you get back to the same environment the next time you open Photopea.

We have made a simple user database. You can log in with your Google or Facebook account. When you are logged in, your settings are stored on the server, in case you lose your computer or need to work from another device.
