So... frequently asked on forums, 'any decent FREE editing software. Seem some clever Czech chap has been 'wasting' his time developing this browser based editor that has the look of Photoshop & its been downloaded 1.5m times.. not bad for a bit of an exercise..

Well its still free though now he's added a little bit of paid advertising on there & is earning some money for his time, effort & skills..

Anyway thought I'd post it up here if anyone feels they need to give it a go...

Thanks for posting this PEP, I'll have try out over the next few days.

I wonder how Adobe feel about it? LOL

There are quite a few PS 'replacements'

examples :

I like www.pixlr.com but it needs flash

I find that the one thing I use that the browser versions struggle with is actions

Also worthy of a mention., other free stuff.
Darktable and Rawtherapee
Both similar to lightroom/adobe camera raw.
And unlike more popular editing software handle the vast majority of RAW files without expensive updates. Also allow tethering and batch processing.

And if your a canon user their DPP is very good for converting to TIFF of Jpeg.
Canon own algorithms for Canon sensors, why would you use anything else???

Adobe bought Photoshop from Aldus. Aldus used ImagIn's algorithms after ImagIn went bankrupt. Those algorithms rendered better than Photoshop's original platform.

Today's Photoshop operates on that 'AbandonWare' from the 1990's. That is why there are so many clones operating the same engine. There is nothing Adobe can do unless you use some of the few parts of PS that are patented or copyrighted.


Being normal is a disability.
