Slices define rectangular areas on top of our document. We can export such document with a single click, and each slice becomes a separate image file, such as PNG or JPG. You can learn more about them at Photopea.com/learn/slices.

Tool Presets

Each tool can have many settings in the top bar. For the Move tool, there is "Auto-Select", "Transform Controls", and more. For a Brush tool, there is a Brush itself, a Blend Mode, an Opacity, a Flow, etc. Tool Presets let us save the current settings of a tool, to load them back later with a single click. Right now, they are possible for a Brush tool, a Pencil tool, and an Eraser tool. Photopea also saves the Foreground color for the Brush and the Pencil. Tool Presets are popular in Adobe Photoshop, and can be used in Photopea in a similar way. You can switch Tool Presets by clicking the icon of a tool at the beginning of a top bar, and selecting a preset from the menu. Press a tiny arrow - Define New, to define a new preset from the current settings. Tool presets can be saved or loaded as .TPL files. Together with the Local Storage, you can have your Tool Presets in place every time you open Photopea.
