Yeah, tinkering with ChromeOS Flex kinda precipitated this thread.

Anyone who's used GIMP regularly, will be right @ home.

I use these -- sometimes even on WIN/LIN:

https://ezgif.com/ (among other things, the optimize tool here is great for shrinking the file size of GIFs)

With the online GIMP tool above, if you choose File -- Open More, you can open an image by URL. To save in a familiar format (JPG, BMP...) you have to File -- Export As.

I think the online GIMP tool is just embedding this link, in other words this is a better link:

There's a bit of a learning curve, it works though:

protip: double-clicking to resize columns can mess things, you want to get the double-headed arrow, click, drag, release.

Graphing produces an image, needs a bit of work on the back end, i'd say:

I appreciate not having to sign in and the ability to export as HTML. :thumbup:

Geez, I feel dumb, I thought for sure that was a version of GIMP modded to work online, apparently it's its own entity:

Photo Pea. :wink:
September 14, 2013
Introduction
What is Photo Pea, why it was made, and what should it be used for.

A little story
In September 2012, I had two courses of computer graphics behind me and had a lot of spare time. So I got an idea to make a simple web-based photo editor. I was working on it for 3 months in 2012 and 2 months during this summer, and I really enjoyed it! :) I learned many new things and realised, that it is not going to be as easy as I expected.

Just another photo editor?
Modern photo editors (GNU Gimp, Adobe Photoshop, Zoner Photo Studio) are usually native apps, which have to be downloaded and installed on the device. It takes pretty long time to turn them on and off. It may bother you, e.g. when you just want to resize a photo. Adobe Photoshop, which is very often used by many professionals, is also quite expensive.

Because photo editors are native apps, it is hard to find any good editor for some minority operating systems. Some users may even buy some specific operating system just to be able to run the photo editor. Photo Pea should remove all these problems.

Main features of Photo Pea
Photo Pea should be an advanced editor, so it can be used by professionals. It must have:

Layers - to split images into several parts
Layer masks - just generally useful
Blend modes - specifying, how layers "combine" with each other
Brush - there must be a way to change the color of pixels
Selections - choosing, which pixels of layer you want to edit
Procedural adjustments - changing brightness, hue, saturation, convolutions (blur, sharpening ...) etc.
File formats
I wanted Photo Pea to cooperate with currently used programs and implement their formats. I decided to implement the parser for PSD and XCF.

Well, you know the goals! Follow this blog to see how am I doing :)
Of course I got that crazy idea it was GIMP from the first site I ran into that was embedding it, from its URL. Anyway, I have to admit that Photo Pea is awesome.

I'm linking to a "WYSIWYG Text Editor", I'm linking to this one for a reason. I've mention using TinyMCE offline in ChromeOS Flex before, not sure if all of the following are meant and/or can be used offline, but on the page I'm linking to, there's a list of other text editors. I'm going to check them out and see if there's something I like better (with a license I find acceptable):

Not knocking TinyMCE, but it never hurts to see what else is out there. :wink:

Here's the others mentioned:

Obviously, something else to look at is dependencies...

Online "office" tools. Sorta a pick and mix of tools. Nothing wrong with that. I note they're using CK editor for their Rich Text editor. I also note, they're using OnlyOffice for spreadsheets. That's something I want to try out sometime. My understanding is that you can install it locally (on Windows and Linux) for personal use. And, no, I don't mean the 'desktop apps for cloud editing'. I mean installing the Community Edition locally. Not necessarily wanting to stick with that, but I do wanna see it.
