Featured Chrome App: In-browser Image Editing with GIMP

Now that rollApp provides a number of free office apps, many users are asking how to use image editing features in the browser. In this post, we’d like to highlight one of the most popular alternatives to Photoshop – GIMP and it’s Google Chrome incarnation – GIMP on rollApp

rollApp users don’t download or install any software. In order to get results faster they simply start working within the application in the browser. 

GIMP, a free image editing program for Linux, Windows and Mac, provides a bunch of handy tools and a versatile collection of effects. On a more advanced level it’s used as an expert quality photo retouching software, a mass production image rendering application, or even as an image format converter.

GIMP resides in the web based cloud. 

If you’re an avid GIMP user or just need a quick access to a suite of image editing tools, GIMP on rollApp in the Chrome Web Store gives you your own version of GIMP in the cloud. If you do not have an account with rollApp, you’ll be asked to create one.

We’re working to bring GIMP to Firefox and Safari – stay tuned!
