Sumo Paint

July 8th, 2011

I recently got an email from Figment player frizbee, who wanted me to know about a new “free” online image editor called Sumo Paint.  I checked it out and it’s fantastic.  It’s very similar to Photoshop and completely free to use unless you want to upgrade to their Pro version.   The basic version of Sumo Paint can only be used on your browser, but the Pro version allows you to download it to your computer for offline use.  You don’t have to install anything except Adobe Air, which is the platform on which the software was built.  You also don’t have to create an account if you don’t want to, just simply click on the Open Sumo Paint link at the top of the page.

It’s got 3D filters, blur and smudge tools, clone stamps, selection tools (magic wand), etc., and there are plenty of tutorials on their official YouTube channel.

There are other free open source image editing tools like GIMP and Paint.NET, but Sumo Paint is nice because you don’t have to download yet another program on to your computer.

So go check it out and when you get a chance take a minute to thank frizbee for bringing this to our attention by buying or listening to one of his band’s albums.

    My computer wont take me to the website. But i did check out Paint.net and its awesome! You have very limited options on Gimp so i think this might help me branch out my covers a little bit.
