Previously, we showcased 5 great online graphics apps that could do in a pinch if you don’t have Photoshop handy.
Somehow, Sumo Paint missed the list.
Sumo Paint is a great online graphics editor. I’ve been using it since version 1 and it just keeps getting better.
Sumo Paint is now in version 2 with some great new features, tools and a desktop app.
If you’ve never used Sumo Paint, it’s about the closest thing to an online app version of Photoshop. The tools, menus and some of the shortcuts all work pretty much like Photoshop.
Sumo Paint Desktop App
Now, if you sign up for a Pro account, you can download a desktop version of Sumo Paint.
The desktop version of Sumo Paint is an Air app that lets work locally without an internet connection. You can also save your work to your computer in Sumo Paint format.
Not bad for $19/year.

- Kaleidoscope (filter)

- Wavelab (filter)
- Liquid Waves (filter)

- and tons more filters
