Local Storage

You can load your own fonts, brushes, gradients, layer styles and other files into Photopea. These resources can be used right after loading. But once you close Photopea, they disappear, and the next time you use Photopea, you have to load them manually again.

Starting today, Photopea can remember your fonts and other resources (that you loaded manually into PP), and load them automatically the next time you use Photopea.

Photopea has a set of files, that are permanently stored on your computer (using IndexedDB). Whenever you load a new font or a brush set, you will have an option to store that file into the set. After you close Photopea and open it again, the set of files is automatically loaded and processed.

This set of permament files can be managed using Edit - Local Storage. Here, you can see a list of all files. Select a file and choose Delete to remove it from the list. The list is also deleted when you clear the website data through the browser settings.
