For more advanced users on a budget, Photopea is a fantastic solution. Photopea is not specifically tailored for bloggers or social media users — instead, it is fundamentally an image editor. This focus on image editing first is reflected in its user interface and color scheme, which might not be specifically designed for bloggers and influencers but still offers useful functionality for them. The UI is very bare bones, devoid of any testimonials or marketing trying to upsell users.
Upon visiting the Photopea site, users can immediately upload and start editing images. The more you use Photopea, the more functionality you’ll discover in the software. Users can create vector images, create layers, apply filters, and so much more. There’s a dedicated tutorial section of the site to help users navigate the numerous features. If you can’t find the answer there, Photopea also has a very active Reddit community as well as email support.
Photopea is unique in that beginners can do all of the simple editing that they’ll need, while advanced graphic designers will also find a lot of useful tools to make something truly memorable. Photopea is a free service that supports itself through ads. Users have the option to purchase a premium membership, which removes ads and supports the developers. The free version already provides full access to all features, although premium users benefit from prioritized email support.
