Photopea 2.9: Scripts are here!

New release of Photopea is here with Scripting and a better support for Sketch files! It has 45 814 lines of code. Play with it at the main site.

New features

  • Support for Scripts
  • Better Sketch support
  • Showing distances for the Move tool
  • Several bugs fixed


Since this release, Photopea can execute scripts (written in Javascript) and perform image manipulation automatically. You can find more details at photopea.com/learn/scripts. Scripts can be executed either directly (from Photopea), or through the api.

Sketch files

We improved the support for Sketch files in two ways. First, borders are converted into vector shape strokes (instead of Stroke layer effects). Such new borders look more precise. They can be used even with no fill (i.e. lines in a Sketch file are converted into lines in a PSD). We made several other improvements, which dramatically reduced possible differences between generated PSDs and original Sketch files.

Second, we improved the loading time and memory requirements for Sketch files. Sketch files are now loaded 20% faster and they use about 40% less RAM. Even the work with large files is smooth and responsive.
