Tuesday’s Tool: SumoPaint

Sumo Paint is a free graphics editing/painting application, that you can use in your favorite web browser! The application can be used in most operating systems and the only requirement is Flash Player.

The free version allows users to create or edit images/graphics using tools similar to those found in other programs such as Photoshop, Fireworks, and Gimp. Users can save the images to their computer or to SumoPaint (with account) as a SUMO, .png, or .jpg file.

To help you get started, SumoPaint has a help feature allowing users to select the tool they want to know more about and often times see a video that shows how that tool works. You can also find some tutorial videos on YouTube.

Whether you are trying to make minor edits like removing red-eye from a photo or creating graphics from scratch, SumoPaint can help.
