    Hi Ivan!

    This is a stunning project! Have you considered to make it open source? At the moment there are no good open source web based graphic editors, I feel like this can become a big one.

    In regards of the feedback, I have two points:

    • It would be great to have some feedback for selections, right now its unclear what is being selected.

    • Canvas has very poor text rendering engine, it would be great to have text rendered using DOM layers.

      Hi Timur,

      I have considered making it open source, but I think it is not a good idea in my case. However, some parts of Photopea will be open-source (ultra fast PNG encoder, font parser etc.) and some parts already are (see http://blog.ivank.net)

      • what selections do you mean? There is only one selection that you work with. It is applied to the currently selected layer.
      • What do you mean by that? Are you having any problems with rendering text layers? Photopea does not use fillText() method of context2D of Canvas.

      Text layers inside PSDs can not be fully reproduced with DOM (HTML and CSS). E.g. there are text warp effects, which have no "analogy" in CSS.
